Without putting much thought into it myself, that's not something that intuitively sounds right to me.
For me mostly just that i think Kittikassem, Sasakul better than anyone Tszyu beat imo.The rest of his challengers on much the same level as Kostya's.
Tszyu has some faded names and the bigger amount of decent\solid 2nd-tier and competent 3rd-tier types than Arbachakov, but i think Yuri's actually tended to be a bit more rounded\better schooled.
Tszyu was more dominant than Arbachakov comparing average performance against challengers, but there is the Cool Vince disaster, which Yuri avoided
I wouldn't argue much if anyone put Kostya ahead though.
