Do you think you could argue the same thing about Mayweather?? Apart from Pacquiao, there's been no other true "super fights" that he could have made really, past it De La Hoya was his only true super fight in his career. People go on about him ducking [insert fighter here] and he might have, but other than Pacquiao there hasn't been a real superstar
name for him to fight.
People cite Corrales as Mayweather's defining fight, and it was a great victory, but nothing compared to other ATG's. If you compare the Corrales victory to some of the names on other all time greats records listed in this thread there isn't a comparison at all.
I mean how far down SRR's record would u have to go to find a comparable fight to FMJ-Corrales?
