What ones did he beat tho? Cervantes was very old and Arguello wasn't even a junior welter.

Pryor was too big for lightweight
Actually he was a natural lightweight but was a bit avoided so it goes and moved to 140 in order to get a title shot faster.

I think Sugar Ray Leonard and Floyd Mayweather would have found ways to duck Pryor, whether at light welter, welterweight or some newly invented catchweight.
One of the biggest myths in ESB history. Leonard was down to fight him after Stafford, but the retina stopped all that.
