Let me clear this up for you. I'm a pacquiao and mayweather fan, and I'll definitely root my ass off for Pacquiao if they do ever fight. But I've been watching boxing years before Pacquiao even started headling HBO cards. I'm interested in the sweet science, not certain fighters.

Therefore, I'm not ashamed to admit that Mayweather has a stylistic advantage over Pacquiao. Pacquiao is a great fighter, but to say he is the greatest fighter of all time is over reaching and shows your simplicity of boxing knowledge.
It kind of is really, for every knowledgeable and rational pinoy on boxing forums there are like 500 who are completely retarded.

Lol. Oscar looks like he's about to leave for a party. Does not look like he was even in a fight vs Floyd.

It sure looks like that, De Le Hoya didn't have a busted face against Floyd.

I think they would be great fights and close too.

But a prime Floyd is still a hell of a task...younger fresher faster Floyd....i dont know..still looks like a night mare for Mosley and Oscar

It's true. Mayweather did not ever face a fighter in their prime who will be considered an ATG.
i.e Marquez, 37 years old when Mayweather fought him. Mayweather made him move up 2 weight classes pretty much. Marquez will be considered an ATG. By that time he was already considered an ATG anyways.


Mayweather's resume is good. He is an ATG, but there are many other fighters i.e Oscar De La Hoya, who has a greater resume, despite Mayweather having zero losses.
Oscar for example has fought greater opposition.

However, if at identical weights with Barrera, Morales, Hamed, Marquez in his prime, Tszyu and all of the other ATG's of this era...Mayweather may as well have them on his resume as we know he would beat them.
No he didn't. He was clearly stating ATG at the time they fought. He may have back-tracked since then, because people have pointed out how absurd that is. But that's what he was saying.

Even if we look at it from the perspective of "went on to become ATGs," it gets even more absurd.

A fighter's resume should be based on how their opponents are viewed at the time, not based on hindsight. I'll give you an example.

Paul Williams and Sergio Martinez - Williams' stock may have dropped substantially in the tail end of his career, but Martinez still gets credit for being 1 of only 2 people who had the balls to face him when EVERYBODY from 147 to 160 was ducking him like their lives depended on it.

Nobody hates unbeaten guys simply cuz they unbeaten. It's cuz of sumthin they said, did, or most importantly, didn't do.

I've seen Haton down at 140 but the discussion has sunk so low that I'm not sure who is serious and who is trolling.

Floyd hasnt fought SRR, SRL, Haggy, Whitty and Duran Duran, so his resume is shit as arum's breath.

oh wait, did you just say prime atg and non-fantasy?

He backtracked and then try to weasel out by constantly shifting focus points, switching to alts and called for help to try to soften the schooling that i was dishing to him and now disappeared.
