    I see Mosley as being better than a shot beyond belief crippled 38 y/o one-legged Gamboa who should be 7-5 at 135 with 2 KOs and the mighty Mario ''I Needed A Gift From My Home Judges to Get By a Seven-Fight Novice'' Barrios.

    One is considered as one of the top 5 current LWs.

    The other has an argument for being TBE at LW.

    Hard question this one.

    I wouldn't call the guy a coward. I believe he has a lot of respect and appreciation for Floyd. Floyd is calling the shots, leading Tank's career. As far as the SSM fight goes. Tank hasn't fought, let alone beat, anyone in the same universe as SSM. SSM, on the other hand, has beat more accomplished guys than Tank. Gotta go with SSM. He's the more proven fighter.

    At 135 where Mosley looked his best? "SUGAR" Shane Mosley easily. Davis
    clearly is talented. But his competition has been very suspect at best.
    There isn't one fighter he's faced that was as good as some of Mosley's
    opponents at lightweight like Ceballos, Leija, Brown, or Johnson. Mosley
    went threw those fighters like a hot knife through butter.
    I don't believe Davis would do the same, though he probably beats all
    of them.
    Mosley stops Davis in 10rds after adjusting to his speed and southpaw stance.

    Tank gets easy fights, Floyd Jr is an expert how to deal with casual fanbase: get fighter fights where he looks very good and get wins via stoppages, then casuals will buy ppvs and tickets and talk as obsessed about " Tank will beat xxx and xxx, he is A side etc ".
    Damn, Tank's and Garcia fans are thinking that they both are maybe more well known than Eminem etc cos they will buy every thing while their idol is KOing boxers they are thinking: our idol is good.

    Tank didn't had fought nor vs Linares nor Loma nor Lopez at 135 lbs, fanatics are talking how he will beat Taylor at 140 lbs and how cool A side hero Tank is.
    Nope, he is not more well known than Garcia in social media for example.

    That’s a helluva a match up, my first thought after seeing the thread title is Mosley would win.

    Who would be a clear favourite over a prime Mosley at 135?

    Loma? Arguello? Duran? Pac? Chavez? Whitaker?

    He would easily have a chance against any of them. I'd favour him over Loma, Arguello, Chavez. Only Pea, Pac and Duran would be favourites.

    And then there's Tank.

    mythical? You notice myths are stupid, not real, not tangible.

    it’s plain stupid. You can spin it whichever way you want to preserve your ego. It’s stupid.

    Then go away! If you're too stupid to understand that this is s site that discusses the topic of boxing and the OP posed a question to the forum to get the site members opinion on a match, then there really isn't a place for you here.

    What's your point?

    What is Pac's best win at LW? You don't think Pac could compete with some of the best ever at LW because he only has 1 win there?

    What is Pac's best win at 140lb? You don't think he could compete with some of the best ever at 140 because he only has 1 win there?

    What is Mike Tyson's best win at HW? You don't think Mike can compete with the best HWs ever because his best win is a shot Holmes or Razor Ruddock?

    I said he was one of the best ever at LW, not that he was the greatest ever.

    I'd go with Mosley, his hand speed alone was immense, throw in the chin, the power and the fact he was absolutely huge at LW.
