Imagine the hype surrounding Mayweather if he'd cleared the '96 field (which included names like Kamsing, Aragón, Peden, Todorov, and eventual solid WBO 130lb and 135lb champions Pablo Chacón and Artur Grigorian respectively - with Mayweather himself theoretically dispatching Grigorian, Aragon, Todorov, and Kamsing in succession) and debuted coming off a gold medal!

His swagger and ego to date would seem downright meek by comparison.

This is why i respect the hell out of IB. The guy does his homework and have a lot of boxing knowledge. True boxing fan.

I only research on dudes i bet lol and classic ATGs.
