Regardless of titles, we can still see what a good win is for the resume. Floyd beating Baldomir for the 'WBC' title was good. But, regardless of the 'stature' of the belt, we KNOW that Margarito would've posed a bigger challenge around that time, even if he 'only had the WBO'.
Baldomir was the real champ though. He beat the man who beat the man.

The win over Zab was big for the time. This fight needed to happen more than the Margarito bout imo.
