Why not? He went up 2 weight classes after a career threatening injury and beat the sh1t out of an highly regarded amateur, undefeated in near 30 fights, top 10 ranked powerpuncher, he then wrecked Berto who was a huge welter, highly regarded, strong as an ox with very fast and heavy hands.

The Ghost is a G! His 2012 run was marvelous & he was wrote off pretty much on both occasions by many.

Yeah I guess...I mean I agree, RG is a G -- and I do think he had a fine, fine year. But top spot good? IDK

Good list. Don't forget, Guerrero was a 3:1 underdog against Berto. I'd have to put Ward above Marquez. His domination over Dawson was honestly much more impressive to me.

I like RG alot, but Aydin was very limited, a mere brawler and Berto was always overhyped. Personally I favoured him over Berto.

That said, I think there are more deserving fighters than Robert despite what he has had to overcome and go through.

How are you judging, by emmotional attatchment or by who they fought and beat?
Nonito has yet to fight a guy he needs to fight/we all want to see him fight.
