He looks brilliant because of who he fights. He has never done anything remotely impressive when comparing him to say, Sumbu-McCallum I.

I do not hold him in the high esteem so many do. I think a lot of folks have good standards, but they've heard 'he's a spfighter'sghter' so many times they think it's true.

It's not. And also, 'he would've beaten 'em' is as much a way of proof as me saying 'Licky Sambo would beat everyone so he's one of the greatest'.

Go with truth rather than hypotheticals and Mayweather doesn't figure very highly.
A day seldom passes without someone calling Floyd a "spfighter'sghter".

Check out the highlights of George Benton Vs Bobby Boyd on YouTube. As an admirer of Floyd's work I guarantee you'll enjoy

Apologies for getting back on topic

I think Floyd has to use more movement than he has done in his last few previous outings and I'm not sure his legs are there anymore. We've definitely seen a change regarding a lack of movement from Floyd recently. If Cotto can have his jab on top form than he has a terrific shot of landing more than anyone previously has.

I'm absolutely fascinated to see what gameplan Floyd is going to bring tomorrow, a few years ago it would have been much easier to predict IMO, and a far more boring fight. I really think hes gonna have to go to war with Cotto at some stage.

This will be the hardest fight of Floyd's career.
