The Marquez win probably gets a bit undersold, though of course JMM is practically made for him stylewise, pretty flat footed and relying on nuances and the ability to punish a sloppy opponent to win fights - Floyd is almost as ''nuancy'' as Marquez and seldom makes mistakes to let the opponent in.
Actually, I think the Marquez win is oversold rather than undersold. People were actually comparing it to Hopkins' victory over Trinidad!
I never saw it as anything more than a good win for reasons you stated (Marquez was made for him stylewise) as well as being the smaller man moving up to fight Mayweather; Marquez really doesn't do anything better than Mayweather so the writing was on the wall for that fight. The Baldomir fight could perhaps be considered undersold, however.

Why is the DLH fight so highly rated? That fight was garbage.

It's rated moreso because of the quality of the opponent he faced. If you're also factoring in Mayweather's performance or how exciting the fight was, the Coralles fight is the best.

Wow, you look at these lists and it's no wonder this guy wasn't voted Fighter of the Decade. Fairly lackluster.

His best wins is his rematch after he lost to Castillo, Corrales, and an over the hill / damaged Cotto.

your 2nd list is spot on, as an overall list just a tiny tweak on my part, top 5 100% agree with, Shane was coming off Ko'ing Marg, people were on the edge of their seats, especially in round 2,

in the UK during the Hatton/may tour the bookies almost had it 50/50 and I truly believe that Floyd ruined Hatton which lead to Hatton ruining himself.
