Turner is a very underrated fighter for mine, especially as a welterweight.

Turner could very well have beaten guys like Mosley, Quartey, DLH etc, but you'll never hear him get the recognition those guys get.

Check out Gil's fight with Joey Giardello if you can. Another classic scrap and a close fight too.
One of my favrouite fights aswell, cant really add much but reaffirm how brutal those exchanges were especially from Gavilan who was winging them in. Also one of the most brutal ending's i have seen.

I like your comparison with Meldrick Taylor for Turner.

I'd give Turner good shots at beating the likes of Curry, Starling, Cokes, McGirt though.
I agree with the rest but not Curry.
