definetly one theory. Are there any other fighters at his level that have fought in as many weight classes, ranked as high, yet never had to fight a Prime ATG?

THis thread is like when that other idiot who said floyd never fought a prime HOF a couple months back. Well no shit. You don't induct someone to the HOF until their boxing career is over so no shit, how can he fight them? How can anyone fight them?

What 'Prime' ATG could Floyd have possibly fought?

There were no ATGs around his prime weights really besides maybe Kostya but even he was in and out of surgery.

i'm not sure what you mean. but obvious ATG from our era are:
Manny, Floyd, Oscar, Mosley, Jones, Calaghe, Hopkins, Lewis, Kosta, Barrera, Morales, Marquez.

There are more but can't e bothered naming. Then there prime is debatable depending who you ask. But they all have them.

Who was a prime ATG that Floyd couldve fought besides little body giant head?

Morales and Barrera bottom end ATG's at best, both well below his weight class

Mosley declined a fight twice. Oscar went after bigger fish.


Who? Marquez is an ATG who whipped Pac 2 years after Mayweather gave him the BBC

Not the point of my thread.

I'm wondering if any other fighter have managed to go through the weights like floyyd, be ranked so high, without having to fight one.

John is virtually impossible for someone to be "in prime" and atg at the same time.... same as HOFer in prime.
