Who had a better resume? Current Crawford or pre-De La Hoya Floyd?

    Definitely. Clearly a better win than anyone on Crawford's resume.

    i'd say Khan at his advanced stage was probably a better win than Genaro Hernandez tbh. And Gamboa even

    Gatti at that stage was losing fights to Carlos Baldomir so. I dunno.

    Floyd's definitely better though

    I'd have a hard time seeing that. The last time Khan looked like a genuine top level fighter was when he soundly beat Collazo and Alexander back to back in 2014. Hernandez was still lineal when Floyd beat him (and was actually favoured over Floyd) and his only other loss was to a near-prime Oscar.

    Don't really disagree on the Gatti win, though. Not a particularly meaningful win in the grand scheme of Mayweather's career, even if it represented his PPV debut.

    i feel pretty comfortable saying Hernandez was lineal in a really weak division.

    his best win is a legitimate 40 year old Azumah Nelson who was losing fights to Jesse James Leija at that point. And even then Genaro barely beat him by a split decision.

    I dunno why he was favored vs Floyd tbh other than perhaps people weren't familiar with Floyd.

    and this is after Oscar's destruction of Genaro in like 6 rounds right?

    and then on top of that you have Gatti who i think like a year later retired.

    I dunno. Khan was not toooo far off from looking real good against Canelo for a bit, and I think Khan was a better fighter than Genaro just in a general sense.

    I don't think I'd say Genaro is a better win than Khan.

    now I do think Corrales, Judah and Castillo were

    Crawford is gonna be the biggest woulda shoulda coulda story ever. What a waste.

    meanwhile, Spence just agreed to fight Danny. Who if he wins after that, I believe is a much better candidate for this thread title than Bud

    Khan was three years removed from looking half decent in a few rounds against Canelo before getting knocked cold and his last relevant win was closer to 5 years prior. Hernandez was regularly beating ranked SFWs while being lineal in the division. Khan circa 2014 would be the better win, but I don't see it in 2019.

    He still has a fair bit of time to face relevant WWs, but the last three years have been a bit of a waste.

    i guess it's no biggie

    and i can't really argue against Khan's deterioration but my point i guess boiled down is that even a deteriorated Khan was better than Genaro beating some ranked guys in a weak SFW division before Corrales/Floyd/Cassamayor came in and after Oscar had blown through him.

    why does everyone like genaro so much! lol

    everytime floyd comes up so does he and it's like....eh. floyd has much better wins.

    I think Floyd.
    Crawford still is not bad and looks good S/C level that helped him to deal with machine.
    He does have some years definitinely to get next interesting fights. Plus Crawford looks that is skilled not only athletically gifted........

    Floyd. And he was more enjoyable to watch pre-DLH

    That Indongo win is underrated.
