Manfredy was close to the top 10
Idk what Genaro was ranked, but it was good enough for Floyd to win the lineal title

So pretty much nobody worth noting at 147, and still to this day.

Shane Mosley was ranked number 3 p4p and the "Man" at WW
Hatton was ranked number 8 p4p
Ortiz wasn't a bad choice either.

I would have preferred Cotto (because I never figured Floyd would go up to 154), but De La Hoya was the obvious best choice for his legacy and the biggest risk at the time. The only people who will discredit the DLH victory are those who weren't following the sport at the time.
