This is just hyperbole. It is not a "massive" achievement to beat Cuevas and a couple of routine challengers. Come on. In a discussion of the greatest ww's ever, that obviously isn't a "massive" achievement.

Well, that seems fair enough to me. Not sure if I'd have him that high as have never bothered to make a top 20 or so for ww, but that doesn't seem too outlandish. His win over Cuevas was excellent, his performance against Leonard showed some considerable skill, and he was convincing in his ww title defences, few that there were.
