at 140 he could have beaten khan or bradley. At 147, I'm sure he would have beaten berto. He is that good, but you know how it is he chose the money which is also good as he defeated pac in the eyes of the fans but I'm pretty sure if he chose to he could have squeeze a title bout for 140 and 147 while still going the money route. But instead he opted for scrubs like likar ramos and fedchenko which is rather disappointing as a fan. And that 2nd fight with diaz was unnecessary
He has been playing safe because he's more interested in money that a better legacy. What a better resume would that be if it included Khan, Maidana, Ortiz, Bradley, Cotto or Margarito. But I can understand that he is at the twilight of his career, he has to choose money, than better legacy. He has probably realized he's no Roy Jones Jr.
