Taylor at the time when he fought JCC had 1 decent victory, and that was vs Buddy.
How isn't he? is probably the better question. A stoppage win over McGirt is a fair cut above a 'decent' victory. He also beat John Meekins and Harold Brazier, as well as undefeated Aaron Davis ten months later (after Chavez) at 147. But yeah, he pretty much shows his class in the fight itself and considering his vast (illustrious) am experience and pro career (#2 @ 140 behind Chavez, #5 P4P) up to that point, was pretty much primed by the fight. Arguably the fastest hands ever, fluid combinations, superhuman work rate, very good footwork & in-fighting ability... The other three listed there don't remotely compare taking timing of the fights into the equation. Corrales certainly had more power P4P, but wasn't as skilled nor did he possess the same sort of physical gifts that can't be taught. The problem is that Chavez happened to be arguably the best ever at slipping and rolling with punches at close-range with a keen ability to pounce on the openings left with his own damaging shots.
