Corrales was an amazing performance and i think i'm right in saying Floyd upset the odds in that fight too which made it even more impressive, but i think in terms of technical perfection people are overlooking his Mosley performance, obviously not his best win because he wasn't facing a prime Shane, but that fight illustrated the term "punch perfect" imo

Got to be against Corrales. In that one fight I think we saw Floyd the technician couple his incredible boxing ability and ring generalmanship to an aggression rarely seen of him, resulting in the 5 knockdowns. It's the fight that really knocked Roy Jones off the top of the P4P rankings.

I also think the Ricky Hatton bout goes unnoticed a little. At the time Ricky was also undefeated, supremely confident, in his prime and in the the P4P rankings. He was coming off the back of some great wins, most notably, retiring Kostya Tszyu. Floyd got the measure of Ricky early on and as soon as he did, took him apart masterfully.

his hypothetical win over margo in 2007 is better than his hypothetical win over cotto in 2008 and his hypothetical win over pac in 2010.

Hatton - 140 king, no advantage

DLH - Floyd came up a weight class, disadvantage

Baldomir - No advantage

Judah - No advantage

Corrales - Undefeated, p4p fighter, number 1 at the weight

Castillo - Division above Floyd, champion

Do you want me to go on?

What the **** are you talking about?

What the **** are you talking about?

cotto- career 140 and 147lb only reason he went to 54 was cause he was beaten by Pac- 54 was not cottos prime weight, never even won a big fight there.

Mosley - shot shot shot hadnt fought in a year and a half

JMM - made him come up to an agreed weight then floyd failed on the scales and paid penalties , even more of a weight advantage than expected

Baldomir- garbage

Judah- exposed long ago

Corrales- best win

Castillo - good win , also lost to him in many peoples eyes including HBO

Hatton - in floyds own word "midget"
