Sorry to chop up your quote but I agree with this part. This is the way I think about it.
I will probably catch hell for this but Miguel Canto ruled the flyweights for a long time, but I don't think of the flyweights as the talent rich division that the lightweights or welterweights are. So while he was dominant I don't think in relation to fighters of different weight classes that he is pound for pound one of the greatest of all times.
