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.
U forgot + in prime. If that is the case then Floyd has beaten plenty of ATGs. Oscar, Shane, JMM, possibly Corrales and Castillo but they are definitely Hofers.

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.
Corrales, at the end of 2000, was so feared and respected that the RING magazine actually elevated him above Mayweather on the Pound for Pound List. Entering their fight, Corrales was #5 and Floyd dropped to #8 after a sub par 2000 calendar year.

Corrales beat Garcia, Gainer, and Manfredy going into the Mayweather fight.

This. Genaro is at the least a HOF, and likely ATG 130 pounder.

Plus, it seems Gatti has a good chance of getting into the HOF eventually...

Floyd Haters are grasping at straws. At first is that Floyd hasn't fought anyone, then is he hasn't fought a prime fighter, then is he hasn't fought an undefeated prime fighter, then it is he hasn't fought a in prime/hofer, AND NOW is he hasn't fought a in prime ATG.

its becuase they rarely take the risk of fighting the opponent the fans want to see him fight.
and if it does happen its usually long past its prime so they dont gain any respect there.

Default a filipino fan reacting to the omission of pacquiao from the ATG jr fw list

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

this is a top 10 of the the greatest jf featherweights according to the RING

first comment

" who WON 8 TITLES in 8 different WEIGHT classes?
NOBODY!
except MANNY PACQUIAO.
hehehehehehehehehehehehe....

that's why they have to make TOP 10 in 1 division just to DESTROY Pacquiao's ACHIEVEMENT.

ALL of you are just BUNCH of HATERS.....
a WIN is a WIN, a LOST is a LOST and a DRAW is a DRAW.. ok?

until NOW!
no ONE can CLOSE or BREAK PACQUIAO's accomplishment in BOXING... ok?

all of you are just NOBODY but a HATERS that you think your TOUGH but your TOUGHNESS can't PROVED inside the RING w/ PAIR and SQUARE.
and your TOUGHNESS shows in a TRAITOR's WAY....

AGREE?
"


most hilarious comment ever

Never got if this guy is for real or he was one of the first facebook trolls posting total bull**** on the ring page. If he is for real he is a complete and total re****.
