Default Re: Which fighters between 140 and 160 would Mayweather lose to?

I think Matthese would have a under-rated chance if he pressured Floyd with workrate and combinations. Pacquaio obviously has a chance but Mayweather would be favourite. As a poster above said, Golovkin and Alvarez are untested still so a little unknown but from what I've seen both would have some chance although would be underdogs in the betting (unless at 160). Martinez possibly has the best chance of beating him especially at 160. People might laugh (I don't blame them) but I would give Khan a small squeak too, I think his speed might give Mayweather problems in early rounds.
Anyone who thinks Mayweather beats everyone at 160, at this stage of his career is massively overrating him.

He beat Cotto, who is a tiny 154 fighter. There are weight classes for a reason. A lot of the 160 fighters are huge and would walk through this version of maywether.

Not Martinez possibly has the best chance. I would favour every 160 fighter in the ring top 10 to beat mayweather right now.
