Floyd is only TBE at 130. From 135-154 hes beatable.

    Big style I agree, JMM was a force at 135 pounds no question. His technical brawl victories with both Diaz and Katsidis were at a high calibre.

    Aside from the fact there are many fighters who would've or could potentially have beaten him at 135 and below, and that's not a knock on him, no fighter is or ever was or will be ''unbeatable'' and that includes British ones

    No one remains unbeaten at any weight class so don't worry about it.

    I don’t appreciate this mentality.

    Don’t question anything then, move along…

    this is just in response to his fanbase who think he beats everyone ever and shouts "TBE yo" at the top of their lungs.

    mayweather had crazy reach compared to other guys at 130. This is something that gets overlooked

    pressure fighters/swarmers/brawlers are floyds kryptonite so same can be said the other way around.

    Mayweather has no losses so I question the “kryptonite” reference and, moreover, what does this have to do with Pac v Mayweather at 140?

    I respectfully disagree but I appreciate the different perspective and can see why and how it can be had. At 140 Floyd was taller, longer, with a bigger frame. His counter punching would be a big problem for sure.

    Manny had a way of managing JMMs counter-punching and although Floyd won their 2015 fight it was very tactical...Floyd was largely ineffective w his own offense too

    he lost the first castillo fight. lets be real. And that has everything to do with pac vs mayweather at 140 since thats pacquiaos style and 140 is his optimal weight.

    Maybe what you are saying is potentially correct except for the obvious red herring of Pacquiao beating him at 140 pounds because he beats Pacquiao at any weight division at anytime just to good for him as he proved w hen they fought. Saying peak Duran, Leonard and Hearns beat him at those weights in the interests of balance is plausible but it never happened due to different eras but what we do know is Floyd never lost and he beat more world champions than anyone else in history and has earned the right to call himself TBE and maybe he is.
