So let's say the numbers support a 60/40 in favor of Floyd, and Floyd demands what he is worth but Manny stills 55/45...are you still going to put the blame on Floyd when BY FACT IT WOULD BE MANNY PRICING HIMSELF OUT AS HE DID WHEN HE ASKED FOR 50/50..??
DLH had a little something to do with that!! Actually he was the main reason...


Floyd doesn't deserve 60-40.. NO WAY! I don't give a damn what the numbers say.. I think it should be a 50-50 split. 55/45 in Floyds favor is more than fair.. After all Floyd would be fighting a smaller man... better than the slightly bigger Sergio? Right?

Well what happened to all of the men willing to take the test?

They fought him. Right.

I'm sure he wants Pac to take the test, but the only reason he's demanding it is that he's afraid of losing and thinks that Pac has a damn good chance of taking that zero.

Default Name All Time Greats who guarded their 0s as carefully as Floyd.

Maybe there have been a couple. On a related question, how would Ali's legacy stand if he'd had a Mayweather mentality about his record? No way would Floyd fight a fighter as intimidating and destructive as Foreman...

None of them had such a mentality.

They got in there knowing/thinking they were the best determined to win and the fight next best guy


Problem with These Mayweathers and Broners - "Still got my 0"

Holy shit who cares... how many ATG's are unbeaten? Marciano?


Margarito is kind of like Mayweathers Foreman

Checks under the bed for that lanky mexican. Even more scary now with that eye.

Default Re: Name All Time Greats who guarded their 0s as carefully as Floyd.

The criticism of past greats simply didn't have room for avoiding more than one or two fights, as they often fought mandatories and had a lot of fights. In 7 years Holmes defended his title like 20 times ... and fought a LOT of undefeated fighters ... then came out of retirement ... and fought Tyson, beat undefeated Mercer, fought undefeated Holyfield, as an old man.

No, I don't think anyone who is considered an ATG cared so much for the 0 as Floyd. I think Oscar may have lost his motivation to be great once he lost his zero, but he still made the big fights.

Greatness was not predicated on that zero, though guys like Holmes kept theirs for a long long time.

I think Roy had a complex about it, especially with the way that Montell Iceman thing and the olympics went, but ... not anymore heh heh.
