    It doesn't matter than Mayweather beat Hatton first.

    Mosley also didn't drop Pac. The referee incorrectly called a knockdown.

    Stop being crazy, man. Vernon beat up Mosley before Floyd. Pac and Margarito beat up Cotto. Marquez had two hellacious wars with Pac before he fought Floyd. Oscar had hellacious fights with a roided Mosley and he was KO'd by Hopkins.

    You make it sound like Floyd only fought undefeated fighters.

    Pac is 4-1 in better performances against common opponents. And he would have murked Guerrero, Ortiz, Berto, McGregor, Logan Paul, Tenshin, and Maidana.

    And Mosley literally body slammed Pac. Not a punch thrown. He was even visibly embarrassed that that he was awarded a KD by Bayless.

    You make it seem like Pac beat undefeated fighters. There's much more to it than how they performed that's a casuals argument. Oscar for a fact was a drained corpse when he fought Pac yet you're counting it as a better performance when he was shot. PBF clearly beat the better version which is more important when discussing these fights he also didn't lose. PBF was 37 and shot when he beat Maidana 2x PBF wouldn't go life and death and lose to a bum in Horn like Pac did. PBF wouldn't lose to any fighter on Pac's resume but I can't say the same for Pac.

    He was not close to his peak at 36, that's ridiculous. Go back and watch a young Hopkins and see how much faster and athletic he was during his peak in his 20s. Hopkins struggled with Taylor because he didn't have the athleticism anymore to deal with him had he fought him when he was younger he would have dealt with him easily. Hopkins was good for so long because he had a style that isn't taught anymore today and his boxing brain was much better than the younger fighters he faced. Even then people hated his style and called him boring but he was effective with it to an extent.

    Not always but it does matter when talking about an undefeated boxer. Some boxers are never the same after they taste defeat they get exposed lose confidence or get depressed. Take Tyson and Prince Naz for example they were never the same and neither was Hatton after PBF took his 0. PBF beat the better version of Hatton.

    Talking about this one?

    The one Bayless apologized for?
    "It was a call I missed. I already whispered it to Pacquiao,” said Bayless.
    "After the 12 rounds, he went to my corner and said he made a mistake. He didn't see it. I said it was OK. Part of the game," Pacquiao told radio dzMM anchor Noli de Castro.

    Pac needs 8+ rounds. But it doesnt matter for his legacy if he fights a close fight and loses.
    Would be Dlh vs sweat pea type fight.

    Hopkins was 36 when he smashed Tito. He was over 40 when he boxed Taylor.

    And he wasn't peak or prime when he fought either.

    Pacquiao needs at least 2 KDs to beat Spence by decisions.
