Why didn't you mentioned Pac?? He moves up 7 wt classes & still destroys & still exciting. This is the reason I rated Pac as #1 P4P.

I am not quite following your logic but if I am not mistaken, Mosley moved 4 weight classes.

It's the lack of dominance that gets people. If fans hear that you are the best fighter in the world, they expect you to outfight your opponent.

Floyd's plan to win at the higher weights is to outslick and outsmart the opposition, because he doesn't hit hard enough to trade.

Contrast that to a Tyson, who tried to blow everyone out and to this day makes casual fans assume he'd have KOd Lewis in his prime. People want savage aggression or blinding speed, and Floyd is far too economical with his offense to win everyone over.

And for purists, he talks too much and displays a lack of knowledge and respect for the sport. It's the same reason a lot of involved fans never really warmed up to Roy Jones.

But I think Floyd is great and always buy his fights. He'll be appreciated more and hated less after he's retired.

PBF, is a very good technical boxer, but he makes too many promises and talks too much shit.

Pacman: 106 to 130 (24 pounds)

Mayweather: 130 to 154 (24 pounds)

The difference is that Mayweather is undefeated and had success in all the weight classes he was involved.

Spot on the man is fighting in a weight class that's not his best that's what most people fail to realize. You're not going to go toe to toe with guys who out weigh you by 15-20 pounds..only a fool would. He threw a lot more at 140, 135 & 130. Watch his old fights.

The difference is Pac always Looking for the Best opponent & destroys them. While PBF avoided the best & Pick his opponent & content on winning by points.

Pac fought 2 29 yr old P4P & HOF fighters & Knocked them out in an exciting fight.


Floyd fought a former 33 yr old P4p & HOF in DLH & just wins by a boring Split Decision.

If you can look past PacDBest's bias and poor way of getting this across, the post here has plenty of validity when comparing The 1 and 2 P4P right now.

I personally have Pac 1, but you get the point.

Blah Blah Blah and if PBF and Pac were the same size PBF would box circles around him just like JMM did.

Actually, Pac causes Floyd a lot of problems if they were the same size. Floyd can be timed and tagged with a straight left hand and Pac's explosiveness will get him some rounds.

Jmm is a much different fighter.

He could cause some problems but not enough. PBF would have a field day with that 1-2 of Pac he's very easy to figure out and that spells doom against the smartest fighter in the sport. PBF would befuddle Pac with his defesne and movement and out box him to a UD win or possibly stopping him late. PBF at 130 was a beast. JMM was able to outbox Pac and he's not half the boxer PBF is.

Ok he might have been outboxed by JMM but pac put him on his arse three times in one round. Pimp C can u get your head out of pbf arse for one minute and admit pac has a better pleasing styles for the fans.
