I can understand taking the payday with Oscar, but why fight a light welterweight when you can fight Paul Williams to unify the welterweight titles?

Let's keep it real and stop the fanboy nut-hugging. Floyd is NOT comparable to great fighters of the past like Harry Greb and Ray Robinson, who fought a combined 450+ fights against better opposition than Floyd faced in 45 fights.
The Floyd-Judah fight was in 2006, the Judah-Tszyu fight was in 2001, how you can say Judah had just been brutalized by Tszyu is beyond me.

Floyd has weak resume, it's composed of carefully hand picked opponent. He avoided Pacquiao.
