campbell....not the same

berto is his best win
yeah...i rate guerrero's accomplishments on par. floyd has fought plenty of guys who never accomplished much so that really shouldn't be an issue. also...like they say, styles make fights. i think guerrero gives floyd a tougher fight than jmm and ortiz did. he put himself in the front of the line by beating aydin. he's the mandatory now....but we all know floyd doesn't fight mandatories. he'll vacate before that happens.
Oh wait...for a minute there, I got the impression that Guerrero was this money-drawing threat in the Welterweight division. My bad...
Anyhow...win, lose, or draw, Ortiz fought these guys, and Robert didn't. You know how the business works, up and coming fighters are SUPPOSED to fight these guys that were once great, with one foot out of the door.
You think people really knew who Canelo was before he fought Shane? Nope. All people knew was, "Hey, there's that red headed kid and he's fight Shane (Mosley). People who knew who Mosley was, but really didn't know Canelo. After Canelo beat him into retirement, people are coming to know Canelo a bit more than they once did.
Oscar's fought an old Chavez and an old Whitaker...and got credit for it (in some shape or form). He even lost some (or most) of his biggest fights. The same can be said for Zab Judah, who lost some of his biggest fights, and hell, he lost some fights that he shoudn't have lost.
As for Victor's record, he fought some notable gatekeepers. On top of that, his biggest fight was one that he lost to Maidana, Mayweather, and now Lopez. We all know that his biggest win was against Berto. Guerrero has yet to have a ground-breaking win, nor has he even lost to someone notable. Again, he has some heavy lifting to do.
