    Alvarez was prime can say a little green but he was prime. But Floyd was old. These aren’t just names. Pac continues to win fights years later. Floyd deserves to be acknowledged. Despite his unlikability.

    If you are green, you are not in your prime.

    Floyd is acknowledged, there simply fighters with better resumes. I don't dislike Floyd that much, but he has no case for top 5 resumes ever. Unless you are extremely high on undefeated record, but you simply shouldn't. Other fighters mentioned had longer streaks without the loss than Floyd's entire career.

    I don't agree with you either, Floyd is definitely inside top 100 P4P.

    You're free to have such opinion, but don't act like it's the only right way to look at these things.

    You mean Sammy Angott at lightweight? That has no bearing on Pep as a featherweight.

    He certainly was great, just not top 5 or top 10 worthy.

    Yeah, Sammy Angott, the all-time great lightweight who'd beat most featherweights
    :lol:

    Certainly not worse than losing to Frankie Brown.
