Any very notable defensive specialists on the rise, on Floyd Jr's level?

    Imir Imam. I think the young man has it. He just needs a different promoter. If I were MP, I would definitely try and get him from Don King. I don't think that King will be able to get him the exposure that MP can. If he had fought as many times as LSC did on a Mayweather undercard, he would be the talk of the town. The young man has real skills and a cool head under pressure. 140 is in trouble when he gets in the door.

    No, Floyd's one of the best defensive fighters ever, these don't come around very often.

    Lomachenko is about the closest that are "on the rise", of course you also have Ward and Rigondeaux but these guys have been there done that and are getting up there in age, that's about it for the boxers that even compare.

    Oscar Valdez is pretty good defensively though, he has some of those similar techniques that Floyd employs.

    Floyd's baby twins could have had potential until Ms Jackson nuked them
