Trinidad is an ATG, his prime was at Welter.

Oscar fought him during his prime.

So that's one of Oscars.

Bull****. Neither trinidad or Oscar was considered as ATGs when they fought each other. Give me ONE source they talked about them as ATGs leading up to their fight.

Lewis lost to Rahman and McCall.

Whether your bias ass likes it or not, Calzaghe is an ATG super middleweight and TSZYU** with right spelling is an ATG light welterweight.

Hopkins.

Although Jones is Borderline. Plus i'd say Calzaghe is borderline too.

we're looking back at there careers now. The career doesn't have to be over to know they are going to be an ATG.

Listen, you obviously can't figure this out, so i reccomend you move on before you pop a brain cell.

Not sure what point youre even trying to prove with this thread

Beating a prime ATG doesn't make you an ATG, anyways. Resume needs to be judged as a whole.

Floyd has an opportunity to fight an ATG who is at least close to his prime, so it may very well happen in the near future.

they don't have to have beaten them. My point is, is floyd the only fighter at his level, thats fought through the amount of weight classes he has, but never hat to face any prime ATG's his whole career.

Or are there others that I can't think of.

yes but knowng what we know now. He was a prime ATG. I see what your saying. But floyd has basically had his career now, he's past his prime so everything that happens now is mute. We're looking back.

THis is the last time i'll explain it. I'm not saying they have to have been thoughto of as an ATG the day they fought.

But looking back now, we know which fighters were ATG and we know when there primes were.

We know Trinidad is an ATG, and we know his prime was at 147 - 154.

They weren't calling him an ATG when he was fighting Oscar but thats not what i'm asking.
