IMO Manny has fought 2 guaranteed prime ATG's in Barrera and Marquez.

And Morales the 1st time as a maybe 3rd.
LMAO in Pac beating an Prime ATG in Barrera and Marquez. Barrera is a future ATG but he wasn't in prime against Pac. Marquez was not an ATG but was in prime when Pac fought him.

Hopkins is the best example i can think of.

Although i personaly think Calaghe was in his prime when he fought Hopkins.

Jones is borderline.

Simply put,

Manny Pacquaio aside, who has there been the oppertunity to fight?

Mayweather chased Mosley and Oscar earlier in his career.

Guy will probably retire with alot of money and his health in tact. With every sucking his nuts about how good he is.
Not everyone will be sucking his nuts. But he his ****ing good. Hate the diva but you cant deny hes does some nice little things in the ring. Before i got corrupted by esb and media I started knowing floyd from youtube. I was amaze at the skillz. Saying shit like that now u get laugh at cause hes such a diva outside the ring. From the people surronding me id say 80% of peep hates him.

you figured out how the game works.

Yes you could say Manny is an example.

I personally think Barrera and Marquez are ATG's IMO and were also in there prime when Manny fought them.

But tbh i'm just happy you learnt the rules

Jones wasn't prime at 160 and Joe wasn't prime at light heavy and was 37.

they will.

he'll be remembered as one of the greatest of all time.

His skills are incredible.

I just wish the Kosta fight happened, or manny in 08. or mosley or oscar really early on so we could see how good he truly is.

Barrera was not in prime when Manny fought him and Marquez didn't achieve enough to be considered as an ATG when Manny fought him ya dummy.

This sounds like the people saying Ward is overrated because he hasn't beaten a prime undefeated fighter...

I mean really?
