Hmm...Zarate was 54-1 (53 KO's) as a bantam. He won 10 title fights and his only loss was a terrible decision to Lupe Pintor. He also won a non title fight with undefeated bantam title holder Alfonso Zamora, which in itself was better than any Marquez win.
Marquez was KO'd three times as a bantamweight, and his only notable wins were over Tim Austin and a fast fading Mark Johnson.
So Zarate was a better fighter in the best era ever for bantamweights. If anyone else agrees with you, I'd like to hear from them. This isn't even debatable.

None of those fights were anywhere near as bad as this one.
Williams threw many more punches than Lara so if you are stupid and score missed punches you would give Williams the fight
Cloud at least had Campillo hurt a few times.
Pacquiao threw more punches, landed more punches, landed the harder punches and was never even close to being hurt. Their was no criteria on which Bradley wasn't thoroughly dominated.
