Obviously Chavez has the better resume - But you could perhaps argue that Floyd has the better "density" of competition, most of his 38 fights are title fights against ranked opponents, Chavez's has a fair bit of filler - Although this is kind of beside the point
Chavez' win over Taylor was an absolutely fair decision. Richard Steele can't just throw a fighter back to the dogs if he is non-responsive. And I always hear people say how " the two seconds belonged to Taylor " but didn't they belong to Chavez just as much? Chavez deserved those two seconds to try and win the fight just as much as Taylor did.
