Shane Mosley, Floyd Mayweather, Bernard Hopkins, Tito Trinidad, and Manny Pacquiao all defeated The Golden Boy.
As I say, I have some thinking to do and more footage to watch.
So Whitaker/Chavez dont count because they were 34, but when he was 34/35 those loses count big right. Oh yea and he's not great because he got robbed against Trinidad
