Question Explain why Sergio Martinez vs floyd mayweather at 160 doesnt make sense?

It will create enough interest and hype to sell more than a guerrero fight. (Mayweather going for his so called 6th weight division)

Sergio is a pound for pound elite.

Legacy wise floyd needs this to revive whatever is left of a tainted/suspect/arguably "well manipulated" career

Not since the great Roberto Duran has it been achieved.

Skills not size wins fight -Thats from floyd jr himself

If Sergio gets beat floyd's career/legacy will be underwhelming considering how his fans hype him up to be.

He's considered one of the greatest at super-feather only Arguello and Chavez are better arguably. I agree though it will be a great fight but highly unlikely, Arguably being a natural welterweight mayweather does not seem comfortable at 154lb evidenced by his outings against De La Hoya and Cotto. I see Guerro and maybe Canelo or a wildcard in september next year.

Sergio is a 160lb fighter, Mayweather has no business above 147.

That's about it for me.

There is a point where size plays bigger factor than skills alone.

LOL at having no business at 147. He shouldve fought marqueaz and hatton at 140 south then.

^This. Trashing a fighter for nor pursuing superhero antics is just pathetic haterism. I like Sergio far more than Floyd but I'll completely defend Floyd on not taking this at 160. It would be beyond stupid, much like this thread.

I totally agree with your p4p rankings, Pac is definitely above Floyd. - Neutral to one of the greats - jas

It makes sense if Mayweather wanted to try it. If he doesn't, it's no big deal. At 36, a move to Middleweight, given a steady drop in punch output, is a recipe for disaster.

He's creating his own unique legacy, you have to understand that the '0' is worth more than any amount of money or whatsoever.
