Jiro Watanabe suffers from not fighting in one of the matinee divisions. Lopez's light fly tenure was in a stacked era that made that division a necessity in the 70s and 80s. Khaosai Galaxy would have been the top bantam in anytime IMO.
Look at Canto. Didn't have the luxury of light fly for most of his career, let alone straw. Still talented enough to be one of the greatest flyweights of all time. Being te greatest straw weight means as much as being the greatest flyweight IMO.
Flea I agree with every word.
