Where was Mosley back in 1999 when Floyd wanted to fight him IN HIS PRIME, as a LW? Floyd wanted to go up to LW and fight him. Where was he then?

See, you take a look at his resume and you listen to the ESPN reports etc. If you were not watching boxing at the time this guy was fighting you won't know how great he truly is. It's like Sugar Ray Robinson, you can watch as many tapes as you want on him, but if you weren't watching him back in his prime, you don't know how great he truly is.
I loved watching "Pretty Boy Floyd".

I was one of his biggest fans.

I watched the Corrales and Gatti fights with my mouth agape.

The speed, skill, power. He was a boxing God.

Then he became Money Mayweather....and I stopped being his fan.

He needs to drop the "Money" moniker.

Putting up roadblocks for a 50 million dollar fight is not "Money".

Floyd ridiculed SRL for losing to a lightweight but El Ternible beat him in their first fight. Duran was better than anyone Pacquiao has ever fought, and that includes Floyd if he grows a pair.

That was at 147. Hatton clearly does not belong there. He struggled against fringe contender Collazo in his first attempt.
