I think many are going on his potential to be a great fighter and who they think he could beat rather than rate him on who he actually beat and what he really has done. Beating one top lightweight should not earn him a top ten pfp rating when more than ten other fighters have done more. DeMarco was not rated anywhere near the top ten pfp. As for his high pfp. rating by Ring goes, Oscar promotes him and Oscar owns Ring magazine. A win or two more over a top lightweight like Burns and Vasquez and I would put him in my top ten but his next fight is with a low ranked fighter and KOing Rees should not raise him up any higher. I would say he is in the top 20 and will probably continue to go higher in the future with more good wins.
