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 **** 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.

The point of the thread is. Has any other boxer been able rise so many rates, be ranked so highly, yet never 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 ****. You don't induct someone to the HOF until their boxing career is over so no ****, how can he fight them? How can anyone fight them?
