Haven't seen all that much of him JT, just the Gomez, Zarate, Owen and Davila fights, but he is clearly an elite fighter. His grit, determination and chin are top notch and his boxing skills don't lag that far behind.
I had him losing to Zarate by a point (and always felt the robbery call was a little overblown), but nevertheless, to be supremely competitve with Zarate and Gomez (though a little past their best as both were) tells you how good he was.
He'd probably just be outside the top ten bantams of all time I'd say. I'd have the following before him: Eder Jofre, Carlos Zarate, Terry McGovern, Ruben Olivares, Fighting Harada, Manuel Ortiz, Erik Morales, Jeff Fenech, Owen Moran, Panama Al Brown, but he'd be right in the mix with the likes of Lionel Rose, Jeff Chandler, Khaosai Galaxy and the like just underneath those guys.
