Some good ones were against Rog, Hurtado even though he was faded as hell and somewhat shot, MG2 although I didn't really like this one, Pineda, Layne, Haugen.
He looked shit against hurtado. I agree with Chavez as his best fight though .

have you seen the first Ramirez? Daylight robbery.

Against women only, but in Boxing Pea had a better offense by far.

Up to 2007 Mayweather was a +24 in punch connect percentage per compubox

Roy Jones Jr +20

Pernell Whitaker +16


But here's the difference, Mayweather at his peak averaged 45 punches per round, Whitaker averaged 62 punches per round. Blistering pace in comparison.

Sweet pea would make floyd look like a fool missing left & right with his 1-2s lol.You can't beat pernell by throwing pot shots even for a accurate fighter like floyd.You have to throw combos & hope you land a few here & there.

Whitaker had a better jab better workrate and maybe arguably better defense. PBF better hand speed better counter-puncher more power chin and better ring IQ. I said better ring IQ because Whitaker clowned far too much in the ring and that brings him down a notch.

I have always stuck to Pea being the more all-around skilled fighter. But, Mayweather's career VS Pea's shows me that he has always been the more disciplined mind in the ring and the more professional mentality outside and in it. And in a legacy rating, it's why he's been able to keep inching closer and closer to Pea on my list as the years go by. If he had Pea's in and out of the ring mentality, I think he'd have dropped the ball by now. Probably gotten clocked into la-la land by somebody while taking the piss out of them. Regardless, I consider focus a skill. A mental skill. And Mayweather has that on Pea easily, for me.
