    True but I see Teo making more decisions as he grows older. He wont be in his early 20s forever.

    Even in the last round he went against his dads corner advice and won the round through his own tactic

    If Taylor-Ramirez fight, the winner facing Teo could be an absolute megafightr.

    Imagine if Lopez managed to become a 2 weight undisputed champion before the age of 25!

    Teo is just one person. Based on the career paths of his peers Teo is going against the grain. Unless everyone else also steps up to the plate then this generation isn't changing at all.

    In Pacquiao's era Pacquiao fought Erik Morales, Marco Antonio Barrera, and Juan Manuel Marquez multiple times. Miguel Cotto fought Pacquiao, Margarito, and Canelo square in their primes. Orlando Salido fought Marquez, Gamboa, Lopez, Garcia, and Lomachenko. Donaire rumbled with Darchinyan, Montiel, Narvaez, and Rigondeaux, even taking on Inoue when he himself was past his prime. Andre Ward fought Kessler, Froch, Abraham, Dawson, and finally Kovalev before they got old. That's one thing you can't accuse him of. Roman Gonzalez got in the ring with Yaegashi, Estrada, and Rungvisai while they were prime.

    It's vanishingly rare but there are still real men who challenge themselves.

    Taylor will savage Teo in close, if Loma can get his attention as a little guy, Taylor will bust him up

    'like in Floyd's era' LMAO

    Anyway, I really hope he means that. I don't particularly like any of them, but Haney/Tank/Teo/Garcia &c; will make for some great fights. They all get crushed if they step up to 140 or 147 though.
