I picked Bradley simply because JMM from fights 1 & 2 were wrongly lumped together.

JMM was prime for the first fight, the 2nd was 4 years later by which time he was 35.

Marquez one and two followed by Bradley. MAB was fairly prime in his first bout.

I don't think you dumbasses realize the question. The thread is asking which fighter Pac fought was more in their peak condition. Cotto sure wasn't closer to it than Bradley or Marquez was

sasakul was on the decine
ledwaba on his peak
barerra 1 on his peak
morales slight on the decline
diaz on his peak - hope the guy who hates rats agrees
hatton slight decline
dlh is shot
clottey on his peak
margarito on his peak -hes been tkod by mosley, so **** what?
mosley is shot
jmm 1,2 on peak, jmm 3 on decline
timmeh on peak

based on the day they fought pac, barerra was the most primed fighter, with accomplishments and wins better than timmeh's resume when he fought pac.
