    Around 5th to 7th imo. I would probably have him top 3 at lightweight. And just to clarify, I’m basing this off head-to-head matchups, rather than actual resume. Because Floyd’s resume at 147 is really nothing all that spectacular…probably not even top 50. But in terms of his skills at 147, I personally think he’s in the top 7. I find it kind of difficult to compare resumes of recent fighters to guys from like the 1950s and prior, as the old timers just fought so much more often.

    At Welterweight?.. Maybe top 50. Admittedly, that is not his best weight.

    At 147 ? Not sure. That class is packed with ATG’s. Top 15 maybe ?

    He was still pretty good at 147.

    But he was really, REALLY good at 130-140. It's just that Floyd was at 147 so long, people forgot how good he was before that.

    Top 20ish IMO. Not ridiculously impressed with who he beat there, but he did have great longevity and was quite dominant. Head-to-head he's brilliant but there's a lot of bigger, bad match-ups for him IMO.

    In terms of H2h I have him at the bottom of the top 5.
    Duran /Armstrong/Sweet Pea and Maybe chavez beat him.
