If you wanna use the p4p ranking then Mayweather beat Canelo while he was already ranked in the top 10 p4p back in 2013.

Im not sure if Thurman even cracks top 25 this year. Its not even close really...There's a reason why he was an underdog in his prime against a 40 year old fighter

Thurman is still a top contender in 147 with both wins against other top contenders in that division not named Crawford or Spence

Of course Pac will always be the favorite because of reputation. Even if it's against Crawford or Spence, i won't be surprised if the odds would still in favor of Pac

You still can't deny the fact that Canelo was a top 10 p4p boxer in 2013. Thurman isnt even ranked top 20 in 2019 on most lists. And yes those lists already factor in your wins and the level of your competition
