Floyd may be a highly technically-skilled boxer; talent-wise and ring generalship, he has everything! Very good record, BUT he never utilized his talent to the fullest by fighting the best in his division!! He will always be remembered as someone who AVOIDS fighters who CAN stain his immaculate record! And therefore, a COWARD! He could talk and talk and talk all day, justifying why he would not fight the best contenders in his division, but in the end... HE WILL be REMEMBERED AS THE FIGHTER WHO WAS AFRAID TO FIGHT THE BEST!

Floyd had excellent skills, but little heart and no balls.

Although Manny's dominance through the divisions is impressive, you have to remember when Floyd was a 16 year old amatuer he was fighting at 106 too. Manny just turned pro before Floyd did.

So you're a cardiologist and you check out other men's balls.

I think you're on the wrong forum, buddy.

Some of these fans think greatness means most skilled fighter.

Floyd jr is considered the most skilled fighter.

doesnt mean he is the greatest...in order to be greatest you got fight the guys the people want.

Ali did this.

Pacman fights to please the fans and doesnt care for the p4p rankings just to please the people win lose or draw.

That's feasable depending on what Pac can do these next couple of years, and that's only in terms of legacy. Because Floyd would easily dispose ofthe Pacman. EASILY.

As of right now, Floyd is the greater fighter period.

Manny without a doubt. He's created talks of the stuff of legends. Being dubbed Mexican Assassin, whether you like it or not, that tells a tall tale. People will be talking for years of this guy that came outta nowhere to give Mexicans hell and went to war with them all. Um yeah, I'll talk about how Floyd ducked great challenges and tried to make you believe what he talked was for real. Only the idiots listened.

So you don't think Floyd is a naturally bigger fighter than Manny?

nope

floyd jr hasnt proven his greatness he is an underacheiver.

he fights for money and bling not for greatness.

he is the MOST skilled fighter but not the greatest right now.

James Toney,Bernard hopkins, winky wright, shane mosley, pacquiao, are all greater then him....they may not be as SKILLED as him.

people need to stop looking at that shoulder roll and say oh he is great thats just looks...greatness means challenging yourself testing your skills not afraid to lose.

Floyd will always be better than Pac. Pac has been ko'd. He has not won titles in all of those divisions you say he fought in. Floyd was never boring to watch, he never ducked Cotto. As far as the dlh comments...lol Anyway, Valero and Guzman might have a story to tell when it comes to who might be ducking who. Other than that, I love to watch Pac fight when he is in there with a dangerous fighter.
