    Let's call lower weight 140 and below. The best fighter p4p in those weights IMO is Lomachenko. Other top notch guys are Inoue, Estrada, Sor Rungvisai, Garcia, Donaire.

    But Davis is the most naturally gifted lower weight fighter in the world. He has that explosion and trigger that you cannot teach. Dude has talent coming out of his ears.

    It's too bad that Mayweather is ruining his career. And basically ducking all the top guys in their prime like Mayweather did.

    The one thing Mayweather should be teaching him is work ethic. That is something Mayweather was never short on. Davis likes to show up overweight and slack on training.

    Somebody has to get this kid in there and teach him the fundamentals of boxing and professionalism. If he ever gets those down pat watch out.

    PBF ducking people his prime is myth. Most of his prime was spent with Top rank who told him who to fight, his best weight class was 130 FFS.:deal: He didn't break away from Top Rank until he was at 147 and almost 30 years old and had close to 40 fights.

    I like Davis he was supposed to fight Abner Mares but I don't know what happened to that fight.

    Mares suffered a detached retina.

    And a fighter decides ultimately who he is willing to fight, not the promoter.

    With Floyd's comments before the Pacquiao fight about Ali fighting guys he shouldn't have fought, advising Ward/Canelo not to fight Kovalev/Golovkin, and him telling the media that he's not letting Davis fight Lomachenko, you can bet your ass that Floyd was ducking and dodging and cherrypicking his way throughout his career.

    I prefer inoue. What inoue has, cannot be trained. God gives it to you, or He doesnt. No other choice. This soab is born to fight, born to ko.

    Mayweather ducked who in his prime? This is usually said by somebody hearing someone else saying it. I need names of who he ducked. I want to know if u know ur boxing history, or u just quoting other people.

    Ok, prove what u are saying then. Let's go down the time line of who Mayweather ducked? Especially his prime years which was mostly under Pretty boy Floyd version.

    Inoue is very precise but not as quick or explosive as Davis.

    I think Teofimo Lopez might be more explosive.

    Loma schools them all with his skill level however.
