I don't think either of those 3 will....but give Cotto a better shot than the other 2 because of Mosley's age and I just don't think Hatton can do it.

Williams might be able to, and I think Spinks could beat him.

Sad thing is....I agree with your sarcasm. Williams has all the physical tools to give Floyd absolute fits.

Default Re: Who Would Beat Mayweather??

1. Miguel Cotto
2. Paul Williams
3. Shane Mosley

I think Floyd could beat all 3 of them, but he would have to work for the W

floyd beats Cotto, and hatton fairly easy. Shane is the one that Im not sure about. Williams could be the toughest matchup for Floyd

No, sad thing is he's not being sarcastic...Carlito is really the last solider of the Margarito hype machine. He's on PW's nuts b/c of it. For me to hug PW's nuts like Carlito he has to beat Cintron, Cotto-Mosely winner, or even Clottey. I just feel a win over Margarito doesn't completely make PW a major player because i never thought of Margarito as more than a mediocre titlist and some people thought he was the next coming of Jesus. Just ask Carlito and Maxboxing writers, i bet they still believe it.

Personally, I'd say neither. But I do think they each deserve a shot. But Mayweather isn't the type of champ to take on every threat.

Because in Spamlitos mind Williams doing well will mean that Tony would too have done well. He is blind to what the rest of us see, and that is tony is average. Spamlito thinks that he is the best fighter at WW.

i want mayweather-hatton...winner gets Cotto-Mosely winner. It's a 4 man tournament of 3 fights top-10 p4p, and Mosely (former p4p #1). We don't get treats like this very often. 3 of 4 top 10 p4p fighters, one being the best, fighting like that. if mayweather beats both, rematches with DLH, retires for real undefeated he gets my respect...in todays politics i'd say it's an impressive resume.

I only think Williams not because of the win over Margarito but because of the tools he brings to the table. I said before the fight that even if Margarito won that I thought he couldn't beat PBF and that Williams might be able to.

When I first read this thread title, I was thinking all-time, so my first thought was Tommy Hearns.

Of these guys, I'd rank it:

1. Mosley
2. Hatton
3. Cotto

Hearns KO's PBF and just about any 147lb fighter ever IMO. But thats another thread.

Ya know, that sounds pretty ****in' good. That would be tremendous, and no one could bitch too much if Floyd beat Hatton and then the Mosley/Cotto winner.
But what are the odds of it happenning?
