    Who wins? As much as I prefer PBF, I think Money takes it due to experience, increased defense & knowledge with veteran tactics.

    I just threw up a little in my mouth.

    To answer this hypothetical... money wouldn’t take a fight against pretty. He’d wait for pretty to get old or look bad then call him out.

    While you are correctly complimenting Money Mayweather please don’t forget Mayweather waited six years so that he could face a much less supersonic version of the Pacquiao who tore through Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. The De la Hoya he faced lost two of his last four and one of the wins was highly disputed.

    Cotto and Shane Mosley were also past their peaks when – after years of trying – they finally stepped into the ring with Mayweather. He is a classy fighter, but a better matchmaker.

    Imho Money is better fighter than pretty boy floyd. Even though pretty boy floyd was a beast and way more enjoyable to watch.

    At the end of his career floyd's arsenal was too much for anyone. He just knew all about everything, and even a bit more. IQ off the charts.

    I would have loved to witness money without any problem in his hands. Being able to punch as many times and as hard as he wants to without having fear of damaging himself. pretty boy floyd's body, money's mind.

    Unfortunaly in boxing, when you can box you dont have the knowledge, and when you have the knowledge you cannot box any more. Life sucks sometimes.

    Pbf was the better fighter IMHO. Money fought smarter though. Hard to say, but I think pbf was greater/took more risks- I'd favour pbf

    Hatton was a great win for both fights. The version of ODH FM fought was better than what Pac fought. Cotto was drained when he face Pac. FM'S version of Cotto was better. As far as FM waiting for Pac to age......LOL 2 things, FM aged at the same rate, I think that's how time works. Also, watch the All Access episode for the MayPac fight. Roach was asked why the fight took so long to happen and he explained that Pac didn't want blood to be taken so close to the fight. He never placed blame on Mayweather and Roach isn't to fond of FM. So, that explains that. Not saying FM doesn't share some of the blame, but it isn't entirely his fault like you are trying to make it sound.

    Here we go again, even after all these years. Manny was afraid of needles and giving blood weakens him. You can't make this **** up. It's on Youtube. Floyd is OLDER than Manny. It's been Manny (more like Bob Arum his promoter) who waited. Who fought who first? Manny fought DLH, Hatton, Mosley AFTER Floyd. DLH weighed less than Manny fight night. DLH was in no condition to fight, it was a money grab. Margarito is the bogey man brought up by Pac fans, but Manny only fought him after Margacheato was exposed as a bum with concrete and getting KTFO by OLD Mosley. Even Pac in his 24/7 video mocked Margarito cheating. Manny laughing said something like "who does he think we are, stupid?"

    Kenny Bayless will be in for a tough night when he gets confused about who is supposed to be protecting.

    mmm the thread has muted and now we talk about pacman. I dont understand the answers. Let me guess. Some idiot in my ignore list brought up pacman and is nut hugging like no tomorrow, doing offtopic in a legit thread, right? And I cannot understand the topic change because I'm ignoring his ******ed posts, right? God bless the ignore lists.

    He’d have a stroke round four. They’d bring in Lawerence Cole.

    You mean pac was the one who turned down an older pbf because of testing??? How many times are idiots like you going to continue this myth??? It was pac who turned down pbf not the other way around roach even admitted it. It was Pac's fault he waited on an already older pbf to get even older:deal:

    2:30 of this video stop the lie!!! Refute my post or log off dumbass troll.

    Pbf was more athletically gifted money was more complete where his boxing brain was his biggest asset.

    The Floyd who beat Hatton or De La Hoya would beat the Floyd who beat Mosley or Cotto.

    That wasnt what Manny said after his fight with Margarito. He said he had never been hit so hard in his career & Margarito was too strong. That was just before he collapsed with damaged ribs. I was right there saw it all
    Margarito certainly had no loaded wraps for that fight BUT Manny was kinda suspect. Robert Garcia complained about Freddies stacking of Pac's & asked that they be re wrapped Freddie point blank refused to remove them & he got away with it. Was suspicious
