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.
Fair calls. I am going the angle of Jeff was a great fighter overall instead of singling out particular divisions. I am also looking more at head to head with the underrated criteria. SRL and Arguello barely touched down in the divisions i rate them in here either. I have to be honest, i think Fenech would give all the greats heart attacks at 126, beating many of them. He was like a slightly less skilled Duran, his intensity, strength and determination was unmatched. I'd call it outright ferocity really.
