Castillo - Number 1 lightweight and was a banger.
Corrales (RIP) - Known for power, undefeated and was the favourite going into the fight with Floyd.
That's just a quick overview, so before you fill your posts with re****ed comments on the back of biased hate, do some research.
cotto was never a power puncher at 154 he was at his best at 140/147 before Margarito concrete gloves messed him up.
mosely was 39 years old when he fought floyd? does this even count? floyd got to shane when he was at the end of his career. a younger version of mosely would have given floyd hell that night.
ortiz isn't an elite fighter and i'm a fan of victor, its laughable how you bring him up and compare him to the 90s 147 fighters.
hatton was never a welterweight he was best at 140 and he didn't even look that great beating collazo.
De la hoya was 34 years old wasn't even a full time boxer and didn't even look himself he still managed to win 4 maybe 5 rounds from floyd.
