Mayweather, arguably the best boxer on the planet, was his first fight above 140, making the jump from lightweight. And the other fight above 140 was Pacquiao, which he won in my opinion. So what was your point?
Troll thread is a failure, and so are you. Run along now.
The point is you missed my point. I am asking who has he fought in the welterweight other than Pac and Mayweather to prove himself a worthy welterweight contender? And why is he avoiding other fighters? Apparently, and I agree with one poster is that is purely business and not in pursuit of greater legacy. So, my other point point is why should some people elevate him to ATG status on the level of Pac when he has not achieved anything other a draw and two losses against Pacquiao.
