    Of course he does and it was one of the main reasons why he had no chance with PBF. If he went life and death with JMM for 4 fights then there was no way in hell he was beating PBF at any point of his career. JMM like PBF is a thinking man's fighter and neutralized Pac with his educated footwork by taking small steps if JMM could do that I knew that PBF could do that as well because he's the master at that and controlling distance. You could see this in the very first round of PBF-Pac. PBF controlled the distance from the opening bell and like PBF said he knew he had Pac beat in the first round and it was because he knew he could control the distance.:deal

    Arguello struggled with speed and movement PBF is a bad match up for him I don't see it. I do think Casa would have been a much harder match up for PBF due to his style and would cause PBF some problems.

    Well, he didn't really go life and death with Marquez in their first fight. It arguably should've been a first-round TKO.

    I agree, Arguello was slower.

    But Floyd wasn't a real mover at 130. He was so talented he could stand right there and beat you up. Arguello could do that, too. I can see both guys doing quite well. Arguello had real power at 130, but Floyd has a great chin.

    Arguello wasn't the type that Floyd feasts on who aggressively swarms. Alexis could box your ears off from the outside. Both guys could fight up close or from a distance then.

    It would've been something to see.

    At 130 he doesn't have any special wins at all. You can look great fighting garbage, and the odd, past it, good fighter, that means you're greatest? Lmao. It's like saying Tyson is the GOAT heavy if he had retired before Douglas, and he had better wins than PBF at 130 by then! Clowns.

    Agreed. Floyd beat Corrales at 130.

    He fought Corrales, G. Hernandez, Manfredy, Jesus Chavez, and Carlos Hernandez. All of them were champions or top 10 contenders.

    It's not his fault he was so much better than all of them.

    He fought garbage? No. He just MADE them look like garbage.

    None of those guys were great. Just good. Brawerls with not too much skill or speed. Corrales was weight drained. I used to think that that was a great win, not because Corrales was great, but the manner of the victory, but Floyd fans love to talk about other fighters fighting drained fighters. Corrales was drained as hell for that fight.

    You can only fight who's put in front of you.

    Even if they were just good, Floyd made them look like outright bums.

    Corrales was ranked ahead of Mayweather at that weight and the champ. Some of you guys are ridiculous with your hate for Mayweather.

    Life isn't fair. Until Floyd fights a prime ATG we won't know how he would handle that.

    Look at is this way. If Morales ducks Barrera he goes undefeated as a prime fighter.

    If Pacquiao ducks Morales he goes undefeated in his prime as well.

    Losing is what happens when you fight the best. Somebody would beat Floyd. Period.

    So what? That 26 year old Pac would have been thoroughly outboxed and clowned by PBF at 130. He was far more one dimensional and reckless at 130 than he was later in his career.:deal
