He was inconsistent at 130, especially after the Whitaker fight.Though a fair amount of those latter efforts could be chalked up to him being on the decline by then.He certainly wasn't looking as strong as his reputation against Fenech(a smaller man) or Laporte.

Still capable of being excellent on his night.Fenech rematch was his last real elite performance, though both bouts have their stories about how they turned out the way they did.You could include the Ruelas rematch, but don't think Gabe was ever the same fighter after the Garcia death.

The run from Martinez to moving up and fighting Whitaker was his prime period there.He could still be a bit Toney-esque in his efforts though.Martinez and to a lesser extent Suarez were fine fighters, yet i'm not sure he should really have had quite the issues he did with them.Took a while to get going against McDonell as well, but eventually horribly mangled him.
