Because the LHW is a shallow division.

MAB showed he still had excellent speed, toughness, and overall ability against Marquez which is why I still think he's top 12 P4P.

Maybe I fail to understand gatekeeper probably. As I view it, its a fighter that will grant the "new" boxer alot of recognition to take on the top guy(s) of the division. As you can see, none of my chosen fighters are totally shot - they still hold alot of value - not just in name, but also in ability.

As I see it, (and I love MAB)MAB is not gonna be a WC again(as requested by OP), he is a top guy, but he is getting weaker by each match. I tried to pick good gatekeepers.

I would view a gatekeeper as a guy that REGULARLY fights up and comers, as a test to see if they can make the next level - not just once or twice.

Like a Guinn, Corley, Mitchell (now), etc. Larry Donald might be another good example.

Guys like MAB aren't really IMO, as once they fade, they'll probably only fight other faded names, or 1 or 2 fights. I mean guys that fight a lot.

But that's just my interpretation.

You could be right. Maybe I aim too high, when picking gatekeepers.

I see your points (all good ones) - it all depends on each individual's definition or criteria of a gatekeeper
