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

He can not even fight a midget without coming up with PEDS, HEALTH, so you expect him to fight a ATG?

He is a cherrypicker!

Just face it, Floyd ducked every fighter in every weight class apart from the 43 that he faced. This seems to be the theory on this forum!!

People just list fighters that he never faced and blame Floyd. even though Cotto admitted he never called out Floyd and Shane admitted he pulled out of the fight they both get named on a daily basis as guys Floyd ducked.

Pacmans record at 130 and below for me is great and his win against Cotto even at the catch weight is a great win. JMM will always have his number and vice versa no shame in that JMM really is a great fighter.

Floyd has an excellent record overall but lacks the defining fight. A win over Pac/Sergio would seal his legacy. Most of Floyd's wins come against fighters that most on esb have never heard of. They see Coralles and castillio and think they know them because they watched round 10 of their first fight, they have never heard of Hernandez etc.

Mayweather has a great resume, but some of his wins get overrated.

Baldomir - I don't care how the belts he won made him #1... he wasn't
Mosley - good win, but tired of the he was "#3 p4p" nonsense.... losing to Cotto, going life and death with Mayorga and beating Margarito don't make you #3 p4p
Chico - great win, a masterclass
Genaro - great win
JLC rematch - great win
Oscar - great win
Cotto - slightly overrated win but good

Cotto's first fight at 154: June of 2010, over a year after Sergio's last fight there, and after Sergio won the middleweight world title.
Mayweather's win over Cotto at 154: May of 2012

Result: Sergio Martinez was the top 154-pounder on the planet, rendering Floyd less than a world-beater and more of a cherry-picker at 154.

You've got to be a physics professor to even explain this thought-process.

Perspective on actual linear time:

The last time Martinez had a fight at 154, that same year, Shane Mosley, Paul Williams and Celestino Caballero were in Ring's top ten p4p rankings. I hope that gives us some perspective on how time actually moves on, even when you don't want it to.

Doesn't make any sense?!!!

Not crazy about considering Cotto the best at 154 due to how thin his resume is there, but then again, that division has been a damn mess for so long that he might get that distinction on the basis of work in the lower classes. This of course should not be taken as support for dodong's absurd suggestion that Sergio Martinez should somehow be considered the best there.

you could argue its not his fault.

He's beaten the best available that's for sure. But just because they were the best available at the time, that doesn't mean they are great wins.

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

But to answer this i'd say the best fighters in the division when floyd fought in it were:
130 - Corales
135 - Castillo
140 - Kosta
147 - Cotto, Margo then Pac at floyds second run at welter
154 - definetly not oscar the 1st time floyd fought there - And not Cotto the 2nd time - I's prob say Martinez was still number one IMO

I agree. In days gone by, up and coming fighters were matched with other up and coming prospects and this made for some good fights. Nowadays fighters are so obsessed with keeping their o that this doesn't really happen as much. It's not all down to the fighters though. A couple of losses on your record affects your chance of a title shot more then it used to so fighter are more worried about losing.
