If Mayweather cherry picks, Mosley (WBA WW champ/#2 WW/#3 P4P)/Ortiz (WBC WW champ/#2 WW)/Cotto (WBA SWW champ/#1 SWW), than 99.99999% of fighters are a million times worse.
For instance.....the same people praising Donaire for fighting Nishioka (and it's a GREAT fight against one of the top ranked SBW's), 36 years old/past his prime/coming off a sizeable layoff, are the same people saying Floyd cherry picked Mosley (which was also a great fight against one of the top ranked WW's), 38 years old/past his prime/coming off a sizeable layoff.
People are just so hypocritical when it comes to Mayweather, it's sad.
