A win that defines a career.

Nearly all the greats have them.

It involves beating a prime HOF fighter in a 50/50 fight. All though ideally it will be against an ATG in there prime and not just a Prime HOF.

How the hell is Floyd supposed to be in a 50/50 fight when he is the best ?
You penalize the man because of his greatness?

what was Floyd vs Corrales? Or Floyd vs hatton?

he's the best p4p fighter but he could put himself in a 50/50 fight if he wwanted to.

for example floyd vs sergio now would be a 50/50 fight. So its not impossible. Its not like he's a heavyweight. He could fight a middleweight if he wanted to.


And i'm not meaning to penalize him. Its just a fighter as good as floyd, I wished we could have seen him battle a fellow ATG in his prime to see how good he really is.

the corrales fight was close to 50/50.

The Hatton and De La Hoya and 2nd Castillo fight were also reasonable close.

But i would have liked to see floyd pull of a underdog type win.

Maybe he will know he's getting older and people are catching him up.

Sergio would not be a 50/50 fight . What does having to be an underdog have to do with being great?

Doesn't have to be 50-50 fight but pacman or Sergio would be a career defining fight

He is already a great though

***y Sergio will be the light at the end of the tunnel from emmanuel forever ducking Floyd. Sergio will be the only way for Floyd to make a big statement.

Beating Sergio at 154 or higher would leave no doubt in any fans mind who is ranked higher out of Floyd or pacman, any honest fan.
