    Who got the better of this classic debate?

    I find it amazing that Mayweather believes he was more impressive against Hatton and De La Hoya than Manny was. That's a real stretch.

    Yeah, Floyd was salty here.
    It was a cheap shot to call Brian Kenny a know-nothing when it comes to boxing.
    I thought Kenny was very professional and didn't get visibly upset, though he surely must have been.
    Pacquiao was indeed more impressive against DLH and Hatton. But of course Floyd would deny that. Most fighters in his shoes would
    But Mayweather did make some valid points. As time has shown, he indeed was the money man in boxing, and he did go undefeated, whereas Pac lost several times, including to Mayweather himself.
    I also agree that so many fans were wishing for Floyd to get a loss, no matter who he fought.

    I think interviews like this are great. Journalists should ask fighters tough questions, and fighters have every right to fire back.
    Good stuff.

    I have to pick Mayweather by stoppage. He's one of the best boxers of all time, and to my knowledge Kenny has never fought professionally before.

    De La Hoya ill give him because it was at 154 and if we're being honest he was a damn zombie when he dropped down to 147 for Pacquiao. The Hatton argument on the other hand was weak, saying a guy is never the same mentally and physically just cause you beat him, yeah whatever. Also Hatton had already shown he was mediocre at 147.
