The smaller guys he's beaten are Vic, Montiel & Arce all of whom were at their best at junior bantam or lower. Those are the best three fighters Donaire has fought & he only fought one of them at their best weight (i.e. Vic).
Nonentity is now a junior featherweight. I'd like to see him prove that he's the best fighter in that weight division by beating the other two guys in the division who are capable of making a similar claim rather than having the media or fans simply annoint him as the best.
Me or you saying someone is the best at jr feather doesn't make it so. If Donaire fights and defeats Mares & Rigo next year, he's not only the best at jr feather, but he's also the best in the sport, imo. I can't give him much more credit than that.
