By that I mean anyone would have a hard time arguing against the winner of this being the best flyweight in the world.
For Marquez, there's an excellent case to be made with the ruination of El Nica twice over combined with a slew of B+ conquests in the last couple of years (including avenging his sole loss outside the one to Donaire) - knocking everybody he's faced down multiple times or out. Then you add Viloria's
name as a cherry on top?
For Viloria, look at his last three. Pingo, El Azteca, and Romero. Murderer's row FFS. He'll have damn near cleaned the joint out if he beats Marquez to feather his cap. Sure, he'll have only unified two belts - but he'll certainly be the undisputed #1. Igarashi and Mthalane can go **** themselves with their WBC and IBF hardware.
