Default What kind of era was "Sweet-Pea" in?

You know, who (besides him) was the best at the weights he fought at?

Did he fight the VERY BEST opposition available to him or not? If not, what fights should of been made?

Won the title against Haugen in a masterclass display, shut out Ramirez in the rematch and unified the titles at Lightweight before moving up to take the 140 pound title from Rafael Pineda in another shut-out performance (after shutting out exceptional gate keeper Harold Brazier). Moved up and won the Welterweight title against another excellent technician in Buddy McGirt (whom he would dominate in the rematch), and was robbed with the Draw against Chavez. After that he moved up yet again to 154 to win a convincing decision against Julio Cesar Vasquez (the guy who beat Winky Wright's ass).

At this point he started to go clearly on the decline, but he still showed his stuff against De La Hoya in a bout many (including myself) believe he won, and showed his grit against Trinidad when completely shot.

So yeah, he faced excellent opposition on the whole. He had no fear.
Dont forget he had a broken jaw against Trinidad. ESPN did a 3 hours special on him and he said Trinidad broke his jaw early.

Pernell Whitaker has an argument to only have two losses on his record against Tito and Boroquez when he was shot to shit.
