Barrera, Morales, Marquez >>> Corrales, Castillo, Hernandez

the difference is ATG >>> barely HOF

I don't think there's any reason to believe Floyd was past his prime by '05. He was no longer at his most optimal weight by then, but he filled out the divisions just fine. It's not like he was small for 140 by the time he got there (late 20's). He was still pretty much in his athletic prime as far as I can tell, and he probably (I think clearly, btw) learned a few things post-Castillo. I think he worked on the inside game considerably more after that. Corrales is still his best showing, of course, but Diego wasn't the kind of guy who could really exploit any potential weakness in Floyd's game in the way Castillo was. The very best and most complete Mayweather we ever saw just might have been the '05 version.


As for the dog thing, I think you have something there. I'll get a dog and have a son, and name one Ezzard and the other Mack! They'll go along perfectly together! Well, until the dog dies when the boy's a teenager...dammit.

I just made myself sad.

You do know that Floyd has fought Marquez too and only needed one try to get the job done. unlike someone.... not to mention losing to no names, and over the hill fighter, and got KTFO by a 40 year old. Also possibly on some ****. And fought drained guys, fought guys coming off bad losses, the list just go on and on.

ALso prime elite fighter >>>>>> over the hill to shot elite fighters.

Interesting the majority think Mayweather is at least even with Pacquiao.

What is sad is that there are a lot of people who thinks Pac is greater than Floyd.

A resume that looks good on paper but in reality is bunch of holes.

How many holes is on Floyds?

Lets see.

CLose match with Castillo that he rematched and won convincingly?

or

4x with Marquez who he arguably lost them all.

or

Drained, straved fighters? guess who did it?

how about mentally weaken fighters? guess who did it?

How about physically weaken fighters? guess who did it?

Partake in a fixed fight? hmmm...

Well it's getting pretty close. Interesting to see how Floyd is 36 yrs old and post-jail now

Default Why did "I'll uhhhh let you take the money" Mayweather retire for 2 years...

...and cost himself HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of Dollars of REVENUE?

To avoid Margarito, Williams, and even Pacquaio?

Would you say that it was like a PIMP takin their *****es money?

Is Mayweather the hoe? Was this Arum's fault too? I guess Arum is his PIMP!!! OH ****!!! Arum said, "sit your ass on the sideline, if you SCARED!!!!" Mayweather obliged.

Thoughts?
