floyd has 4 fights in the last 5 years, 2 of which are former fighters that pac has beat or stopped. one is an overhyped quitter and another one is a shot fighter.

Default Re: How come Floyd has never fought a Prime ATG?

yaay, my threadss been bumped

The point of this thread is not beating a prime ATG.

I'm just asking has there been a fighter in history at floyds level who has fought in as many weightclasses, but never had to face a prime ATG.

I'm not saying floyd neccesarily avoided anyone in particular. I'm just saying are there any other examples.

And i agree i don't think cotto was keen back then.

But the point is, floyd beat the number one in each division. but he didn't beat the best in each division. And my point is, in all sports, especially boxing, the two can be seperate
You are basing it off of your opinion and using your opinion to discredit a fighter. Fact is he always faced the #1,2, or 3 guy each time out since he became a champ back at 130 and up.

Ledwaba wasn't #1 in the division though

So therefore he beat the best guy in that division the time he fought them.

What is a more impressive/career defining win?

06 - Baldimore - Margarito - Williams - Mosley at 147

12 - Cotto or Marinez at 154

I'm not questioning why he made the fight with who did, i'm just using an example of how just cost your fighint the number one guy. don't mean its the toughest more career defining fight available

we're going round in circles.

The number one person in any sport, let alone boxing which is more subjective than most, isn't neccesarily the best.
