Monzon erased the division, mostly in a time of single belt. Undefeated over 84 bouts, 14 title defenses, again mostly in an era of a single belt.
Im not sure if thats tripe or you just have the blinders on but a lot of guys would have beaten that "solid lineup" (outside of Valdez) at middleweight. But to each his own.
