I don't think Floyd is really or ever was scared of fighting anybody in his league, a guy that fought for so long for a living to me doesn't constitute being afraid to fight someone he stands a chance of beating. though i don't really care much for him personally, i do respect his skills and work ethic.
I do think more than losing a fight, he's afraid of losing that "0". I think he wants to go out undefeated, so he avoided a couple guys that he wasn't sure he could beat. That being said, I do think Margo was the guy he avoided the most. Hell, most guys didn't want to fight him in his prime.
Leaving the wraps issue out of it, the guy was relentless, big, iron chinned, iron will, lots of stamina, hardly any real skill, constantly throwing punches, pressure brawler with a great uppercut. A nightmare for most guys. As much as i dislike the guy, he did have some good attributes. I think Floyd would have beaten him at anytime in a hard won fight.
I voted for Pac in the poll, but since have changed my mind.
