Apples and oranges my man. Floyd started at 130 Leonard at 147. Leonard was a harder puncher and more athletically gifted. While both are 5 division champs Floyd didn't need a catch wieght to do it. I swear that Lalonde fight made me hate all catwieghts. Anyway Leonard fought way better competition has a better resume, and is higher P4P. Floyd is the true 5 division champ of the two, though.

Some of us think he's one of the greatest talents we've seen. That being the case he could have won that fight. Seeing it would be cool.

Of course it isn't going to happen. Maybe you could argue that Monzon-Napoles shouldn't have happened.

But should Griffith-Tiger? Jones-Ruiz? Fitzsimmons-Corbett? Every now and then one of these blows your hair the **** back.
Truth!

The only reason I want this fight is because Martinez deserves a mega event/payday before retirement.

Floyd is #1 P4P and Martinez is #2/3 depending on where you have Ward.

How rare is it to have two top P4P fighters that are able to fight each other?

You, as a boxing fan, should be demanding this. Instead you are continuing to be a flomo dick rider. 'whatever you do is fine with me Floyd. Don't worry, i won't ever demand you take a serious challenge. I'm a TRUE fan. Keep ripping me off for the chump that i am'.
If Martinez can make 154, he would be fighting there now because there is more money there. A fight against Angulo can give him more paper than anyone at 160 not named chavez.

Andre Ward and GGG in a year would be Martinez's best options. The Floyd fight would never happen.

How is Floyd not a small WW. You've got guys like Ortiz and Berto and other fighters weighing in at 164 167 on fight night while Floyd weighs 149-150. He's small.

Comparing anything SRL has done to Mayweather is laughable, let's just stop
I know SRL is a legend and his resume is way above Mayweathers but Mayweather right now will be a favorite against anybody so why not go up to 160 where he will have a challenge

A win over Martinez or really any middleweight champion would estlablish him as one of the best ever.
