Default Steve Molitor v the best at SBW?

I am a big fan.

But I wan't to know how he squares up, in your opinion, against:

(a) Israel Vasquez
(b) Rafael Marquez
(c) Daniel Ponce De Leon
(d) Celestino Caballero
(e) Jhonny Gonzales (if he is still in the mix at 122lbs)
(f) Juan Manuel Lopez

with rafa and izzy i dont know how their wars have affected each other, but if there there still in good conditon, i i'd pick Izzy and rafa over steve right now.

(c) Daniel Ponce De Leon = steve would box circles around him.
(d) Celestino Caballero = his reach could be problem but imo steve beats him.
(e) Jhonny Gonzales (if he is still in the mix at 122lbs) = steve UD or TKO win
(f) Juan Manuel Lopez = too green Steve TKO win.

Galaxy has it about right, except I don't know about the TKO wins.

Steve Molitor beats everyone but the top 2 --- Vasquez & Marquez.
But give him time.
Let him fight a few of those other guys first and we will see about the top 2.

I would agree with most of that. I like Molitor over Ponce De Leon by wide UD.

Its hard to say about Caballero, as I havent seen a lot of Cab, but I would give a slight edge to Molitor if they fought. Its too bad, because Molitor and Cab SHOULD be set for a unification match, but because Ontarios athletic commision has same day weigh-ins, Cab wont take the fight. His promoter says all the money for the fight is in Ontario, so it likely wont happen.

At this point, I think Molitor loses to both Marquez and Vazquez, but he definitely wouldnt be blown out. And an upset wouldnt be completely out of the question, as Molitor would be a very live underdog.

I favour Molitor over Gonzalez, but I think it would be a very close fight, with Molitor winning on points, I really cant see him getting a TKO against Gonzalez.

I havent seen a whole lot of Lopez, I'd like to see how he does against PDL before making a prediction. From what I have seen, I think he will beat PDL, as long as his chin holds up. As of now, I would pick Molitor over Lopez, if I had to choose.
