That's what it looks like to fight everybody, and most of those guys had about 30 pounds on him and half a foot of height. He made as much money as De La Hoya but was worth every penny, and he won a bunch of his toughest fights; so people love him and continue to rate him highly.

Zab Judah has great speed and style. He fights everybody and loses all of his big name fights just like Oscar. He lost to Kostya Tszyu, Mayweather, Cotto, Clottey, Khan. He fights everybody and he loses to everybody. It's called being a gatekeeper.
Beat John John, MAG , Hernandez , Chevez (Old) Sweet Pea (close), Ike (Could have gone either way) , Vargas, SSM 2 , Tito . Which were all big fights at the time.
