Default Re: 130, 135, or 140....Which Version of Chavez Was Best?

Despite his rather abbreviated stay there, I'd like to think the lightweight version showed the best combination of power, speed, timing, and strength. He was a little too bulldozer-ish at 140, and lacked snap at 130 because a lot of the time he was weight-drained and nowhere near as strong. 135 was a nice go-between, for as long as it lasted....
skillwise he was quicker earlier, but his experience peaked at lightweight and his speed. At 140 he started to lose a little speed but had more power. He was a legit 3 weight champion. Fought great at all 3 weights.
