    Aaron Pryor was in an Ohio crack den at that age.

    It's not disrespectful at all...all these guys were distinguished, accomplished champions worthy of your respect...more than you're according them, that is. It's a difference of opinion maybe, as to whether they would indeed beat him, but disrespect??? That's total, fan boy bull**** thinking.

    The point being that Mayweather was past prime and still gave Maidana a rematch and won without issue.

    They weren’t on Mayweather’s level as evidenced by their career ledgers and worse eye test. Mayweather’s size and dimensions were even favorable to theirs. Take Laguna....He probably lost more than half of his big fights. It’s just no frills logic to assume that Mayweather would beat them. It’s not disrespectful to them.

    Mahweather would never beat a Ray Leonard.
    Leonard was faster,hit harder and had much better combinations.
    Leonard didnt hit hard? Ask Dave Boy Green who almost got his head knocked off.
    As Price who got blitzed in one round- yet managed to beat Cuevas.

    Leonard or Duran or anyone of that ilk would expose Mayweather.

    Dominated by Castillo and Maidana
    KTFO his wife
    Cherry picked most of the rest
    Dominated Peds

    How ironic, but you need your eyes checked. You hardly know what you're looking at. Know a good eye doctor?

    He’s a great fighter and a scumbag. He’ll obviously attract passionate views. His crazy fanboys (who I’m convinced hate boxing because boxing fans hate being told “my guy is the best ever and if you don’t agree you don’t know boxing” from people that don’t really know boxing history or respect it) obviously make it even harder to rationally discuss him.

    I think his career in an all-time sense may be lower than what his talent was which tells you a lot about his career strategy.

    I've never seen that one. But what I have seen on this site is the over inflation of his welterweight accomplishments. And because of this some on this site making claims of Mayweather beating everyone from Jr.lightweight to Middleweight which is laughable in my opinion.

    Probably lost narrowly to Castillo when he had the flu and a bad shoulder. Took care of business in the rematch.

    Beat Maidana.

    Twice.

    Which wasn’t the original point being discussed. But, why am I not surprised? As soon as a reasonable argument can be made for the potential of other fighters in history to upset FMJ, changing the subject seems to be your M.O in action.

    For someone who claims to post against the grain, you sure appear to be an archetypal Mayweather Fanboy.

    maybe he'd shine the shoes of the guy who sweeps the steps for the guy who carries the bucket for the guy who waits to go on if the prelim boy doesn't show up .....

    .... at an amateur bootleg tent show on a chitlin' circuit carnival in a dustbowl tank town in the 1930s.
