Oscar (way past his prime ) Hatton (Junior Welter who suck his only fight at 147 against Collazo) JMM ( a 135 pounder or more like a bloated welter) Mosley ( Trained for Berto then on to Floyd and at 37 way too old to adjust thus over-trained). Yeah nice try

I mean that's what the man said also that Floyd never stopped sparring until everybody had enough. Those sparring tapes must be ****ing epic, there were no shortage on people who tried.

just off the top of my head I know he's sparred with:

Demarcus Corley(fmr. WBO light welterweight Champ)
Carlos Baldomir(Fmr. WBC Welterweight Champ)
Zab Judah(IBF Light Welterweight Champ, Fmr. Welterweight King, and this session is what allegedly made the fight so heated)
Lovemore N'Dou(Former IBF Light welterweight, and former IBO welterweight champ)
Lamont Peterson(former interim WBO light welterweight champ and the guy who won a majority of the rounds against Ortiz in their draw).


So just from those there is a deep interest amongst boxing fans to see these tapes.

Theres rumors he sparred with Morales too a while back

His next fight is against the legitimate WBC champion in Victor Ortiz

Here's who he has fought:
Shane Mosley- WBA welterweight champ
Juan Manuel Marquez- tune up
Ricky Hatton- IBO/WBC International/Fmr. WBA/Fmr. IBF jr. welterweight Champ
Oscar De La Hoya- WBC Super Welterweight Champ
Carlos Baldomir- WBC/Lineal Welterweight champ
Zab Judah- IBF champ
Sharmba Mitchell- tune up for Judah
Arturo Gatti- WBC Jr. Welterweight Champ
Henry Brussels- WBC eliminator
Demarcus Corley- WBC eliminator- former WBO champ
Phillip N'Dou- Fmr. WBC international/fmr. WBA intercontinental/fmr. WBU
Sosa-
Castillo(2)- WBC lightweight Champ
Chavez- Would go on to win the IBF Lightweight and WBC Super featherweight belts
Hernandez- Would go on to win the IBF Super Featherweight belt
Corrales- No explanation needed
Augustus- Exhibition fight for his hometown
Vargas- fmr. WBC featherweight champ
Gerena- WBC Continental Americas Champ
****** Juuko- WBC International Super featherweight Champ/Lost his bid for the WBA title with a 11th round TKO after leading on 2 of the 3 judges scorecards.
Rios- 44-2-1 when he fought Mayweather
Manfredy- Stopped Arturo Gatti, was the second best fighter in the division.
Genaro Hernandez- 14-2 in world title fights, was the WBC champion and had only lost to a bigger Oscar De La Hoya prior to the fight.

That's every opponent Floyd has fought from his first world title fight onward. So mind telling me where these soft opponents are?
