It ends brutally for Floyd after Leonard Ellerbe murders him for rejecting his repeated ***ual advances.

Broner would've beaten him.

Beating Baldomir and Zab Judah the linear champions at 147 at the time is not to be sniffed at. His record at Junior Lightweight was outstanding as were his performances. At lightweight he beat Castillo the best fighter there twice. At 140 he was not able to face Tyzu who was out because of injury and he moved up to 147 to dominate. Please don't go on about that cheat and criminal Margarito being avoided. PBF comprehensively defeated his conqueror Mosley. In fact I refuse to carry on this debate as Mayweather's record does not need to be defended at all. Even a blind person would acknowledge this. I am sorry but I feel strongly about this. All due respect.
Yeah, I don't see the fighers he avoided who were that great, or would've made a massive difference to his legacy.

So it's the usual tripe then. It doesn't matter what fighters he fought, it's when he fought them. Cause he's the only fighter in history that hasn't fought fighters at their absolute peak everytime

Lots of other top/great fighters have pretty poor records by comparison with their actual ability.

Floyd's is just one of the most glaring, made worse by people believing that he's the greatest of all time.

Someone like Tommy Hearns also fits this category, as does Roy Jones, Bernard Hopkins, Juan Manuel Marquez and others.

Yeah but I said there is no one he didn't fight that would've made a significant difference to his legacy, not how much he did in comparison to other fighters.

It would've been nice to see him fight Cotto back whenever but he's fighting him in May and Cotto's probably a tougher proposition now than he was when Pacquiao fought him, at least mentally. He was all over the place against Manny ; fought like a clown with no discipline after doing okay early on.

Pac's wins over Barrera and Morales rank higher than any Floyd victory that i can think of in the last 5 years.

Like someone said on the previous page, the man has the power to make ANY fight happen at ANY time, yet he always comes with an excuse. Shame really.

He wouldn't of been this consistent in the 80's though. But that's understandable with the amount of beasts around at the time.

Nah, Pac's handspeed was just too much for him IMO. That got Pac' into the fight and forced Miguel out of it. Cotto was okay for the first two rounds, got caught, and then it was over. Nothing he could do to change that because he isn't all that.
