+1 Mayweather

The truth hurts but the truth is you have to look at when he has faced his more dangerous opponents and their condition when he faced them.

There do seem to be a lot of past their best/looked bad before he fought them on that list.

Easy Mayweather. he's fought like 6 times in 6 years and every time it's a careful decision.

Guys like triple g will fight 6 times this year against anyone fact.

Hard Rocked

Richard Hoffer

Gone, too, is Lewis's legacy as his era's dominant heavyweight. As Evander Holyfield and Tyson sagged into history, Lewis had emerged as the division's outstanding talent—hard-hitting, athletic, tough-minded and professional. Now that he's suffered the second loss of his career, all that led to it becomes suspect. Having lost a fight he shouldn't have, in other words, he is no better or worse than the rest of them.

Rahman (pronounced ROCK-mahn), who was installed in this bout as a time-killer, somebody to keep the public interested while Lewis chased Tyson.

The 28-year-old contender from East Baltimore, who didn't take up boxing until he was 20, promised all who would listen that he wasn't the same fighter who had lost to David Tua in 1998 or been knocked out in '99 by Oleg Maskaev.

This is an extremely subjective list, but any rational one should have Mayweather, Joe Cal, and Jones as the greatest, at least of recent memory.

Morales - First implementation of weight draining opponents to their advantage and el terrible just lost to Raheem in a higher weight class.

De LA Hoya - Clear self explanotory cherry pick and Pac was the heavier fighter on fight night.

Shane self explanatory cherry pick.

Hatton - Hatton just got turnbuckled and got punch drunk vs Lazcano. Ricky also gains weight to about 200lbs in between fights but pacturds claim he fought Ricky at his best weight.

Bradley - Was a cherry pick gone wrong and quite frankly Manny's most prime opponent he's ever fought and got an "L'.

Rios - punching bag cherry pick just like Margarito. Probably a new belt will be made for this fight.

Manny by far is the greatest most sucessful cherry picker of all time due to being voted as FOTD for fighting dead men in the ring. No one else in the history comes close except for maybe Jack Dempsey.

manny pacquiao has easily cherry-picked more than mayweather. Floyd's guilty of some cherry-picking, but not much, and certainly nowhere near the amount manny pac is.

1. manny
2. calzaghe
3. hatton (pre-floyd)
4. wilder (still early and can start fighting legit opponents soon)

The difference is: Floyd fights people who are ranked PFP / top 5 in their division.

GGG is fighting nobodies.

Fact.

Lewis did fight old and passed it fighters. Wouldn't call him a cherry picker. He did retire instead of facing his father though.

Anyone like the anyone's he's fought in his career. They always meet one or both of two standards: A) at the time a 154 pounder or a small MW coming up, or B) coming off defeats and a ways removed from any former glory once achieved.

Horrible example, dude, to use Golovkin.

I can name you 50 guys easily who would trample all over Golovkin on a "P4P list." He doesn't even factor into this equation, as you can't cherry pick when your career, if you retired today, is utterly beyond irrelevant.

When it comes to cherry picking, no one holds a candle to Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather's name is synonymous with "cherry-picker".

"I'm a rich coward." or "We're not fighting to see who the best is."

LOL

People will remember him as a cherry picker.
