De La Hoya was not stronger IMO. I see you didn't want to include him quite in the upper echelon, but just to touch on him anyway, Gavilan's gas tank is so superior to his.

I do agree but a lot of modern 'welterweights' would not be in Gavilan's time (goes for any weight really with only a few exceptions)
Well, the point is if he is on equal footing to men larger than he, then that only serves to put him over the top in his own weight class.
