In my opinion Finito has the cleaner boxing style I have seen. He has a Marquez feel to it but way cleaner. And I believe he fought good competition the best at that but nobody knows the fighters in those weight classes also it didnt help that he never moved up. But to me he is the coolest textbook style fighter that I have seen.

I think a big part of that criticism is his low weight class; he'd have been more memorable had he been bigger. He was as technically sound as they come and had great KO power for his size. You'll find many fans who think he would've schooled Gonzalez and Carbajal. That is a whole other debate, but I'd have to agree that it hurts a fighter's legacy when he doesn't prove it in the ring.

I agree with your post and the bold is a good way to put it.

Yep, just that Finito was cleanest. Some people say perfect but I won't take it that far.

I would still rank Morales and Barrera ahead but it's certainly close.

Whereas, before the 3rd Pacquaio fight, it wasn't close at all IMO.

JMM edges them both in a Best single win category though

I think in terms of natural size Marquez was always a weight division bigger than Morales and Barrera, but saying that in my opinion he is the best.

I think head to head against a prime Barrera he potentially loses because of the style, the left hand orthodox. But for me he could easily be a legitimate 4-5 weight world champion, he just hasn't fought for the titles.

I would certainly put him with the best of the best from Mexico in a historical context, and yes the Pacquiao KO has cemented this, because that was a win for the ages.
