It depends on which Mayweather fights it is, because he sure got some insomia-busters in there.

But Pacquiao's was always exciting even in his losses.

Barrera I, Morales I and II, JMM I, II, and IV, Hatton, Julio, Agapito, Cotto.

OR

Cotto, Hatton, Ndou, Ortiz, Chavez, Gatti, Manfredy, Judah, Oscar, Gerena.

Give me Pacquiao, but not by quite as much as one would assume off the bat with the vocal feeling many have that Pac is all time exciting and Floyd is all time boring.

Would say Mayweather Cotto was good rather than great to be honest.And Marquez 3 was a stinker ? The result stank a bit but the fight was decent.

I like the breakdown.

I really don't know if I'd call Oscar a stinker. It wasn't any worse or better than Mayweather/Mosley, in my opinion. Oscar being competitive may have intrigued me enough to call it "ok" rather than "stinker."

Not to be a douche or anything, but Ortiz happened between Cotto and Mosley.

I think Mayweather/Ortiz is one of the most exciting fights in his career, for certain. 4 rounds of high action, good drama, and an infamous ending. If you were showing somebody a whole Mayweather or Pacquiao fight and they weren't into boxing plus had a short attention span, Mayweather/Ortiz is the best it gets.

So say we count Ortiz as good, I would call it great but I'm biased as can be since I was there, it would make your count: 1 stinker, 1 ok, 2 good, 1 great in last five.

I'd go with Victor Ortiz. Berto is up there though. These two, Viloria, Matthysse, Maidana, Ioka, Broner, Kirkland, Segura are on my short list of most exciting, active.

Ortiz's last 5:
vs. Josesito - great action, just short of a war, climatic on stool retirement
vs. Mayweather - great action in 4 rounds, drama, climatic n controversial KO
vs. Berto - epic war
vs. Peterson - multiple KD's, good pressure and countering action
vs. Vivian - aggressive start, multiple KD's, early finish
Plus, earlier:
vs. Maidana - the most epic war on this list, probably in this thread
