But they aren't ranked for various reasons.
Like Garcia is number 1 light welter. But i'd say beating manny at light welter is a better win. (would you argue that beating garcia is a better light welter win cos he's ranked number one?)
Bradley is currently the number one welter now. But i'd argue beating Manny of Floyd is a better win.
There are many examples.
The problem with your logic is t hat you are trying to use it to discredit a win and that is bull****. If you beat Garcia at 140 you beat the best 140lber in the ****ing division. Based on your logic you would say, "Oh this guy beat Garcia at 140 but Manny Pacquiao was the best at 140." WTF
