2009 version of Shane was well past his prime. DLH actually had a very close fight with Mayweather. Both fights would be 50/50 in their primes

Why won't you guys talk about how he'd fare at his prime at 130 or 135 against other ATGs at this weight?
OK, Duran would ****ing ruin him at 135. Better?

[quote=MVC;13999251]It wouldn't make a lick of difference even if Floyd fought Mosley or DLH in their prime from 2000-2002. Floyd would still give them both a BOXING LESSON.

Ok whatever you say.You can't tell people to not say Floyd didn't fight the best Oscar/Mosely in their prime & at their peak though.Respect Floyd but him giving both boxing lesson at their best is far form the truth whether he beats them or not.I know you love floyd you can tell by your passion & he's your idol/hero but don't go spewing bs you don't know & couldn't be more far form the truth. Floyd doesn't beat prime oscar/mosely easy whether you like it or not but that's some wishful thinking on your part. Everything you just mentioned is an opinion which is all irrelevant.

U are correct, Mayweather was calling out Mosley when he was 130 champ and Mosley was 135 champ! Mosley wound up and moved up after a year of Mayweather calling him out to 147 to fight DLH

Default How come Floyd has never fought a Prime ATG?

Serious question.

Guys like the Klitchko's have to stick to there weight class, so can only fight who's available.

What I want to know is. How has Floyd managed to rise 5 weight Classes, earn a shit load of money, be recognised as the number 1 fighter in the sport. Yet manage to avoid facing a Prime ATG, and arguably manage to avoid fighting any prime 1st ballot HOF'ers his whole career.

Guys been around 16 years!!!

Are there any other fighters who've managed to fight through so many weight classes, and never had to fight one prime HOF'er or ATG.

Or is Floyd a one off?

Is one of those stupid threads again. THere is no such thing as a prime ATG. Most of the time when a fighter is considered as an ATG is at their tail end of their career.
