You don't think a guy with Campbell's excellent pedigree (Olympic champion pedigree) isn't arguably the second best in terms of boxing ability in the division? I didn't say he was arguably the second best fighter because he's not. Lopez doesn't have a developed enough jab or good enough defense to be rated as a better boxer than Campbell despite being the superior counterpuncher, Ryan Garcia hasn't had to show his actual boxing ability at all yet, Pedraza is no longer in the division, Haney hasn't fought anyone yet at the elite level (not even a bottom top 10 contender), and Davis is similar to Lopez in that his jab is heavily underutilized. Campbell has displayed his boxing skill against the two top dogs in the division. Until Haney can actually make good on his hype and show it against a rated contender or a world titlist his talent isn't worth discussing. The young prospects in the division are more talented but that doesn't automatically make them better than Campbell in terms of boxing ability. He's the Lightweight version of Derevyanchenko and nobody questions whether Derevyanchenko is a worthy proven contender as he's been in there with both Jacobs & Golovkin in highly competitive close fights. In Campbell's case he only came up short against the #1 guy on both occasions and gave a good account of himself against Linares in his first title fight. To describe him as not even ‘remotely proven’ isn't accurate as he was able to test both (Loma to a much lesser extent).
