Yet, he lost to Mayweather clearly in their rematch, but Floyd is overrated? Constipated logic son.

It's also even more hilarious as Floyd beat Castillo at his best weight as the "supposed greatest" ever in that weight class. Also consider what JMM just did to MP and it becomes even funnier.

Clearly Floyd was right about the boxing dynamic when he said "damn i wish i was Mexican"

****! Read and try to cogitate on something before replying.

Above 135, meaning after he had beaten Castillo, Corrales, Hernandez etc, he's saying Floyd has been overrated and that for someone with only a handful of fights in over five years, he still gets too much praise, especially as the P4P #1 guy. Not hard to understand.

With only a handful of fights since 2007, there are many other fighters who have done better work, against better fighters and done more of it, but he still gets too much consideration as the number one p4p guy for fights he had ten years and more ago.

If his work against the best has dropped off dramatically since 2007, should he still be considered the default p4p number one guy when other fighters have much greater wins and more of them over the last 5 years?

He's being overrated as the p4p number one guy now for stuff that was done years and years ago. Get it?

Castillo is certainly one of the best lightweights of the last twenty/thirty years. I'm not sure whether he gets underrated as such because I think most people recognise it. It's a pity that he didn't get that win over Floyd. Should have gone to him despite being a close fight.
