What risks do you speak of? I mean if you are a poster that is going to implement the "formula"-list names of people who floyd didn't fight, blame the fight not happening on floyd, and then overarte the guy- well this will never end.
The truth is pre ODH 24/7, floyd was the equivalent of paul williams, sergio, and any other great fighter with limited drawing power you can name. Big earners, ODH, Kosta, Shane, were avoiding him, not the other way around. SO he fought an undefeated Corrales, fought Castillo at LW in his 1st fight at the weight, went to AC to fight Gatti. Now posters like you reinvent and rewite history.
Same with the TR guys. You can either evaluate the situation based on all the facts, or just the ones to suit your agenda.
Either way, when you've beaten over 20 different world champions in 44 fights, only one of them a repeat, and someone says you need a "great" win, that tells you just how great floyd is.
If the guys who are allegedly on floyd's level can't perform when they fight him, maybe they shouldn't have been put on that level in the first place. Maybe we should question the people who put them in floyd's class instead of floyd.
