Default Carmen Basilio (1957) vs. Floyd Mayweather (2012)

Anyone finding this hypothetical matchup very interesting?

Not particularly interesting. I'd rather see Floyd against the best fighters at 130/135 hypothetically.

basilio would honestly give floyd a much tougher fight than cotto. he's one of the toughest fighters ever, hands down, with underrated cuteness to his skillset. he would hoestly test floyd. floyd would bloody and beat him up but basilio would never, ever stop.

Carmen Basilio is one of the most rugged, action packed fighters in the history of our sport, a five consecutive fight of the year awards.

Him against anyone would be intersting.

look at his first fight against sugar ray robinson and tell me it's "not particularly interesting". That's one of the greatest fights ever.

This guy was a ****ing monster, if Floyd thought Cotto was strong and physical, he would be in for one hell of a shock against this guy.

Then again, Carmen upset the greatest of all time.
