Fighters like SRL, ODLH, Cotto, and Pac will always be more loved by the general public because they put themselves at risk of a loss and excited the crowds.
Yes fighting a prime Kessler isn't putting yourself at risk of a loss

Going up against ODLH @ 154 (A weight he's never fought at before) is not a risk

Going against a good prime Reid isn't a risk.

He would have 5 losses if he fought those fighters

Default Re: How come Floyd has never fought a Prime ATG?

Here's how I look at it:

There are a bunch of excuses, coincidences, and stories regarding each fight that wasn't made. There is only one constant, though: Mayweather himself.

Things happen in life, and boxing is the strangest business out there, but Floyd always seems to be at the center of a big fight that doesn't get made at the right time.

For the record, I do not place the majority of the blame for Pac/Mayweather not working at Mayweather's feet, although I do not think he ever negotiated in full good faith; he just wasn't going to let Arum dictate anything.

The fact that you can name each risk so easily show how few there were.

Thank you for proving my point.

So many others. But I'm not going to waste my time typing them all out to you. You know who avoids all risk?

Pacquiao/Arum/Roach LOL.

Go ahead and provide examples.
if you don't understand the question, just log off. You're too stubborn and slow minded to even explain anything to.

There's been plenty of articles written on fighters Floyd SHOULD have fought, which do not get into any blame assigned. But you are right, the common name on A LOT is Floyd Mayweather Jr.
