I didnt say you made it up, so calm your flormones down guy. Even when hatton was ranked P4P he never had a fight at 147 and mosley was just a name at that point which explains his spot on the list when his only significant win during that time period was margarito.

Oscar was 34 years old in 2007. He was past his best, but not deteriorated. At 154, he was a threat for anyone. Cotto and Margarito became big threats in late 2007. The difference is that Oscar was a superstar.

Oscar that fought Mayweather would have tko Cotto. Cotto is a better fighter at ww then he is at jmw. Oscar in anyverson of the one that fought floyd or mayweather would have tko Cotto at jmw.

Manfredy was close to the top 10
Idk what Genaro was ranked, but it was good enough for Floyd to win the lineal title
Notice something here? They're all LIGHTWEIGHTS, except for soft touch Baldo. Nobody's ever said Floyd didn't shine at lightweight. It's everything after that where he's been ducking, dodging, and bragging. All talk, no fight.

that's because he asked before the Oscar fight and nobody was ranked top p4p at light WW that could/would fight him

So lets get this straight so everybody knows. You think Mosley only beat Margarito because he was mentally not in the fight because of the wraps issue. A guy who has no technique, no skill and fights one way which is coming forward, taking and giving punches?


So thats why you dont rate Mayweathers win over then Welterweight Champion Mosley. But would rate Mayweathers win over brick gloves had they fought?

no technique, no skill blah blah blah but good enough to beat the shit out of ***io, stop Lujan, beat Cintron when it still meant something, beat Clottey and tough enough to take everything Cotto could dish out, which is a ****LOAD of punishment... yeah. I do think the wrap controversy got into his head. I dunno how hood you are, but if you just got a call that there's a felony warrant out for your arrest it's pretty ****ing hard to go out and play a good game of hoops in the next 10 minutes.

And again, I have to wonder... why do you bother defending him ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT LONG? Mayweather avoided tough competition at welterweight. Everybody knows it. You're not going to convince anyone they're not seeing what's obviously right in front of their own eyes. You're like... the superest superfans in history lol and I can't figure out why. Floyd doesn't deserve it. He sure as **** doesn't appreciate it.
