I had Fenech down for Feather but I don't think he did enough to really did enough there to be considered "great".
That said I think if he'd stayed put at Feather he could've established a lasting legacy there,as he looked awesome the fights he had at Feather especially the Callejas fight which was Jeff's peak.
Fenech without the layoff would've whipped guy's like Paez,Dorsey,La Porte or even Grove imo,and I'm hard-pressed to come up with a guy to beat him at 126 at that time.
