As an inbetweener I know not much emphasis is put on the division, but it's had some great fighters through it over the years.

What are people's thoughts on my timeline?

From Wright leaving the division until williams domination of phillips, it gets tricky but other than that I'm fairly happy.

It also depends how you view norris's losses to santana as well for whether or not vasquez overtook him.

I had winky beating vargas in 99 but then tito cut a swathe through the divison so I'm contenet with that choice.

Quite different from lineal.

It's just a timeline of who I think the best boxer in the division was month by month.

Little comes out looking good. I'm glad, he's underated. Beast of a puncher.

Agreed. I sometimes feel people get too caught up on alpha v lineal and look past the fighters to the belts themselves.

I've made some changes since I did this thread but haven't uploaded them until every choice has been scrutinised.

This is just an interim timeline remember.

I'm currently downstairs watching big bang theory whilst drinking stella and pondering whether to go out on the smash so long story short I can't be arsed checking my latest version to see if he made the cut
