There is no way that anyone who has seen these two fight should have Margarito ahead of Kessler. B-Hop, Winky, and Calzaghe were whoopin ass for years, but didn't get put on the p4p lists until they beat a big named fighter(even if that big named fighter was inferior to them skillwise).

p4p list in america are a popularity contest, not a skill contest
