I think Hughes can still compete at the upper-mid levels of the Welterweight division but his striking is awful and his speed has slowed considerably. That's just in part due to his age, but I still find it incredible that Hughes can still do well at 38 years old without having evolved too much. Makes you wonder what a Hughes with striking would be like. Scary.
