    Pretty Boy Floyd!

    No, wait! PBF was actually quite a bit over the hill but in true ATG fashion, he still won all 12 rounds.

    I dunno but boxing is a business and you can't blame him for taking fights at opportune times.Imagine he took on Golovkin sooner than he did?Even Jacob's said he only took the fight after seeing him with Brook,prior to that nobody won rounds off him.
    I think Oscar understands his fighter and knows exactly when to make these fights,such is boxing.

    're Lara it should be noted that Oscar didn't want Canelo to fight him and you could say he had a point.

    canelos best opponent was Floyd, but Floyd was already slowing down, I believe he was already past 35 , and he also moved up in weight

    Probably next closest would be Lara or Trout, neither really turned in a great performance
