if he had all 3 titles yeh and then he was at FW and lost in a 15 rounder yes IMO he should have lost all his titles

Same with Duran & RJJ, 4 weight champs that could/should have been 5 weight champs since Duran would have murdered any LWWT champion at the time he fought SRL at WWT & RJJ likewise vs any CWT in the same time frame he beat Ruiz at HWT.
I also dont regard DLH as a 6 weight champ since he never beat Sturm or Hopkins.
Hearns, DLH & Mayweather are the only legit 5 weight champs to me.
i disagree because these guys did actually win the titles maybe not to your satisfaction but they did do it and taht is some feat by itself
