    McGuigan certainly performed better in the Pedroza fight than Hatton did in the Tszyu fight. Barry won without questionable (illegal) tactics.

    The LaPorte and Taylor performances of McGuigan were fantastic.

    They are fairly,,interchangeable ; McGuigan was probably the better overall and skilled. Mancini and Hatton were a lot alike.

    I think

    McGuigan
    Mancini
    Hatton

    Would be my ranking as well.

    Ricky actually had the most athletic ability of the three (definitely the quickest feet of the three), but McGuigan and Mancini were both more skilled/better schooled. More durable as well. And, McGuigan and Mancini had better stamina than Hatton.

    So yeah, Ricky is the weakest link.

    Mancini ? Fair enough
    Hatton head and shoulders above McGuigan ? You must be joking. Ricky would throw 2 punches and look for a clinch to grab a breather. Barry was Mr Perpetual motion and had perfect rhythm and balance.
    Good fighters all 3 but I'm guessing you haven't seen much of Barry.

    The performance against LaPorte was arguably the best of Barry's career. Also don't forget his stoppage of 2 time World Title challenger Jose Caba.

    He also dropped Pedroza and had him hanging on more than once in the later rounds. 15 round fight too.
