in a era with the likes of marque, pacquiao, mayweather he just would get wrecked.
McGirt and Vasquez are actually better fighters than anybody Floyd or Manny has faced at 147 and up, particularly at the time he fought them. Both were the #1 fighters at 147 and 154 respectively, neither were pushing 40. McG the lineal champion. They're combined record at the time was 112-3 and one of those was a DQ loss and another to Meldrick Taylor, that elite fighter Chavez beat.
