As talented as he is theres others that have equal and more talent and much more appeal than Floyd does. He's not exactly an exciting fighter although he can be in spurts. Theres many more in the WW division alone that are worth the admission to see and more. Frankly I don't care to watch Floyd unless he's in a position to be the agressor, counter movers and punchers bore me. I see the talent but theres more talent in stalking and being the sgressor than there is be a passive agressor. It never sold tickets and still doesn't get my money. Men like Leonard, Duran, Hearns would overwhelm Floyd because their stronger and punch harder. Past greats like Sugarman would be to much for Floyd to deal with, if he went to the ropes with these men he'd get hurt badly. When you reach the top of a class you usually need a punch to maintain your position this is the first time that I can remember when the Welter class was controlled by boxers with average power. No way can I say that Pacman and Floyd are big punchers, they're not!!!
I would have enjoyed Floyd with Sugar Shane in a series of bouts with Shane having a little more youth and strength instead of the condition he was in when he fought Floyd. I believe those two are the best in the class and give Pacman all the credit for invading a class that he was no where near just a few years back and actually dominating it to the point where Floyd won't fight him. Yet! Ray
