Do you think Inoue could be considered better than Ricardo Lopez one day? I think beating Casimero and Nery would be a good start.

I'd argue Inoue is already better.

Inoue's a 3 weight champion, and won the WBSS.

Donaire is better than anyone Lopez fought.

Finito defended his title more times than Inoue's total amount of fights.
Let's talk again when Inoue retires because to me it feels like he's just getting started. He's fresh and only 27 so I'm thinking 5 more years.

He's on the right track, though. Maybe wins over Estrada and Gonzalez.

I love Lopez but I think people have a tendency to overrate his overall career. Chocolatito may eventually be considered greater, as Inoue may. Lopez is a clear great to me, but he's about as thin on opponents as anyone I'd rate so clearly great. The other two I just mentioned were taking bigger risks and with Choc, it eventually hurt him but pay an 0, buy some alternate greatness points to that 0, and usually come out looking greater for it if you win more than lose. I don't even know what that last sentence meant. I think I had an episode there. Someone send someone over to BE's house and see if was trolling, if the comment was autogenerated or if he's in some real trouble, please. Anyway, knock on wood (knocks on wood) I can still type-...Who is it? ...New house, who dis?
