Default The Super Bantamweights...

Absolutely ridiculous. The strength in depth is unreal!

Titlists/Top guys -
Nishioka
Donaire
Rigo
Mares

Past prime 'names' -
Montiel
Rafa Marquez
Mijares
Darchinyan
Arce?

Best of Europe -
Kiko Martinez
Munroe
Quigg
Frampton
Galahad?
Bhaktin

And -
Mathebula
Couple of Kamedas
Terrezas
Eric Morel? / Anselmo Moreno?
Rico Ramos
Wilfredo Jr
Poonsawat

Anyone of those 'past prime names' is what the Brits should be looking at IMO. How would Frampton do against Mijares/Montiel/Darchinyan/Marquez? He'd get US tele for any of those surely... There's just so much quality that there's really no need for any shit fights.

Maybe one of the history buffs can enlighten me but surely that's got to be the best top 20 of SBW history. How strong of a weightclass is that in comparison to others?

Anselmo Moreno aswell if he steps up, he might just be the best of the lot.

I think Frampton is dynamic and well rounded enough to do well against the guys you've mentioned, I'd leave him away from the top guys for a while though.

Darchinyan would be a huge name for frampton, think he could well beat him too. A come forward banger, could play well into Carl's hands

Del Valle looks a great prospect to me. Looking forward to him vs. Vic this weekend

Ėts just an absolutely insane division and has been for the last decade or so. I think from 2000 to 2010 something like 7 of the ring magazine's fights of the year came from this weightclass
