The last fighter you would have clearly favoured to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr.
How far back do you have to go to find a fighter who you'd pick to beat a prime Floyd Mayweather at 147? I don't mean just have a chance, or be in the conversation, but rather somebody you'd actually expect to win. I suspect that, like myself, most of you guys don't give Pacquiao a huge chance, or even Martinez for that matter, so how far back do we have to go? Vernon Forrest? Trinidad? Whitaker? Leonard? Duran? Hearns?
Emile Griffith? Robinson? Armstrong?
Kid Gavilan? lol.
Seriously though, who can you put your finger on and say, yeah, that guy had the ability and style to give Mayweather fits.
