I don't think so, A prime ATG.

Mosley?

They were both past their best.

130: Genaro, Corrales
135: Castillo X2
147: Baldomir, Mosley
154: Cotto

At 4 of his 5 weight classes, he holds completely legit claim as having beaten the then best fighter in the division.

To anyone who thinks there were ever any PRIME ATG's in his weight class while he was there, please go ahead and list them.

Floyd never faced a prime elite fighter, forget a ATG.

Corrales was elite, undefeated, and prime.
Castillo was an elite lineal champion in his prime.
Baldomir was a lineal champion in his prime, although not elite.
Hatton was undefeated and in his prime, although not at his elite weight.
Cotto was an elite fighter, although not at his prime.

Name the prime ATG's that were at his weight who he should have fought. Please, go on... Enlighten us.

A prime fighter who would go on to become ATG.

How is this hard to understand?

I'd say the best opportunity other than Pacman would have been Mosley after he had beaten Hatton. But he retired and Mosley vs Cotto happened.

I do think he gets a tad too much stick but if he had fought Pacquiao in 09/10 only a fool could discredit him.

Castillo was his best win, and who did Corrales beat to be elite?

True there no ATG in his weight or time at the weight, but there was a Elite fighter in his prime in 08/09 Pacman but Floyd did not want to face him.

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?

Pac only fought one and he went through more weightclasses than Floyd.
