What hurts Floyd is there wasnt really any fighters of his caliber floating around during his time....and the one who was or almost was, was Pacquiao and for whatever reason there have been 9,075.0001 and counting on all boxing boards this fight did not happen

whether its Floyds fought or not it hurts his legacy because its missing the lone guy everyone saw as his foil
People realize now that Pacman wasn't a threat to Mayweather.

They aren't on the same level even to the casual fan.

Former champion Roberto Duran has recently criticized Mayweather’s legacy. Duran believes Floyd is a product of the era he’s fighting and stated "If he fought during my era he would just another guy in the bunch.”


No question, Mosley is right. Mayweather is far and away the best fighter of this era.


flomos, they agreed with Mosley but not with Duran.

How did Pac achieve greatness. Good question. Ask Torrecampo, Singsurat and JMM.

He fought Cotto AFTER Margarito destroyed him
He fought Hatton AFTER Floyd KOd him
He fought DLH AFTER Floyd beat him
He fought Margarito AFTER Mosley destroyed him
He fought Mosley AFTER Floyd destroyed him
He fought over the hill Morales 3x
He fought Barrera 2x. I give him credit for Barrera I.
He fought JMM 4x whom Floyd schooled
He fought Clottey, Rios coming off losses

What a legacy!? Looks like an Arum made fighter to me. Padding his record with Barrera, JMM and Morales. Pac didn't fight any of these fighters anywhere near their prime with the exception of Barrera I.

Floyd sought out Mosley, DLH and your boy Pac in their prime. They wanted nothing to do with him. Now a desperate Pac wants to fight Floyd. Who does Pac think he is?

He fought Cotto AFTER Margarito destroyed him= Floyd fought Cotto after Margo and Pac Destroyed Cotto

He fought Hatton AFTER Floyd KOd him = Pac k.o. in 2

He fought DLH AFTER Floyd beat him = Pac tko in 8

He fought Margarito AFTER Mosley destroyed him = Floyd took a vacation

He fought Mosley AFTER Floyd destroyed him = Mosley run like a bitch against Pac.

He fought over the hill Morales 3x
He fought Barrera 2x. Barrera I was legit
He fought JMM whom Floyd destroyed 4x = Pac soften JMM for Floyd and he cheated Marquez on the scale.
He fought Clottey, Rios coming off losses

What a legacy!? Padding his record with Barrera, JMM and Morales.
fixed



Floyd destroyed Mosley ?

Pac is the guy who needs to beat Floyd to regain everything that he lost from that Marquez counter right that knocked him unconscious for 3 minutes.
