IMO he beats Oscar, PBF, Canelo, Cotto, Martinez and Pac. He would be arguably the best fighter in the world today if he was in his prime.
. People see JMM as a great boxer and counter puncher because of what he did to PAC. What happened when he tried to counter mayweather? Precisely. Although themweightmissue of that fight is always going to cause controversy, it shouldn't make a differencemto how well you can slip a punch and counter as such. JMM has good defence, but not as good as winky.
