    3? I count 4. Who do you have Floyd going the distance with, mate?

    Both Castillo & Maidana actually beat Floyd but the Vegas mafia covered his ass. DLH could easy have been a draw & the Pacquaio fight should have been declared a N/C after the IV scandal. He should have been DQ'd in both the Ortiz & the Judah fight. Any other fighter would have been in my opinion

    No.

    Floyd could have fought a prime version of Manny just like many other fighters were willing to do.

    Manny didn't duck testing.

    He just wanted a cut off which was perfectly reasonable due to the incident with Morales 4 years earlier.

    A cut off with an after fight blood test should have been sufficient.

    How long are you going to run with this?

    It still took age to make even after Manny had agreed to everything.

    Then after years of slandering Manny with racist remarks etc, we find out that he had an IV on his sofa before the fight.

    And you expect us to believe it was legit just on Bennet's say so?

    I truly don't believe Duran would stop him, I definitely think he beats Floyd, especially at LW

    Every time I've watched that fight I've thought it was a CLEAR 8-4 for Floyd.

    Thomas Hearns would either win a wide decision, or win by KO. Floyd would have serious problems with the height and reach deficits, paired with the quality of that long jab, and the handspeed.

    A more fair hypothetical would have been Floyd vs Vernon Forrest. A fight I doubt Floyd wins either.

    Lmao @ the thought of Floyd fighting on the inside against Hearns.

    At 147 he loses to Robinson (with 6 months to prepare for Floyd), Hearns, Duran, Leonard.
    135 lbs Whitaker is a 50/50 fight.

    That's not what happened quit trying to re-write history because you like Pac more than PBF. Pac's own trainer Roach said it was mostly their fault the fight didn't happen because they didn't want the random blood testing. Those are facts. 2:30 of this video



    Pac pulled out of talks to fight Clottey a fight no one called for in Texas with no random blood testing and PBF was left to fight P4P #3 Mosley who agreed to random blood testing with no cutoffs. That's what happened, just because you don't like it doesn't mean you need to continue this myth.

    9-3 or 8-4 still a clear win.

    Pac said that he would take any test after the Clottey fight and sent out the same message for close to 5 years after. Floyd came out with excuse after excuse after excuse after that. When the fight was made, Floyd himself said that "everything is about timing" and that he "waited until the time was right".

    And then you see Floyd saying things to the media like Ward shouldn't fight Kovalev, Canelo shouldn't fight GGG, and Ali fighting guys he shouldn't have fought. Throw in the fact that Floyd blatantly told the media that he won't let Davis fight Lomachenko and to blame him for the garbage opponent selection, it's rather obvious that Floyd ducked a prime Pac.

    And we know it was NEVER about drug testing as Floyd rejected VADA (the gold standard), the $5 million dirty test penalty, and was caught using illegal IV fluids.

    Gold standard? You mean the same pac who didn't do VADA random blood testing in 2 of his last 4 fights? :deal:

    Pac should have agreed to testing and he wouldn't have had to fight clottey dummy. We would have seen two prime guys fight. The fight the world wanted.

    Pbf was right about ward. Hbo was protecting GGG they were not trying to make that fight but would rather ward go up and take the risks to fight kovalev. You have a guy who's proven with an already great resume not being respected when you have ggg who hadnt beat anyone take no risk and getting more respect from hbo. I understand what he was saying there and he was right.

    Pbf knows tank gets embarrassed by loma and as a promoter is trying to protect his investment.

    false argument. ANY ONE can gain weight. he could have moved up. stayed where he was at instead of actually testing himself.

    Floyd wasn't busy enough, you need to keep busy or he will just walk you down.
    But i guess Floyd is "immune" to pressure.

    PBF wasn't immune to pressure but it was hard to pressure him. You're not going to commit to pressure against a guy with cat like reflexes who's not there to be hit and a guy who can counter as good as a prime PBF. It seems easy until you get in the ring with him and he's getting off first and getting back out of range before you have time to set up and before you know it you're fighting his fight instead of yours.
