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.
I agree with every word here pal. I know people like to make a big deal out of who the lineal champ is but when you consider the recent opposition of these two and the fact they're taking on each other whilst the lineal title was most recently completed between two journeymen there's no legit argument in ranking iga above these two.
