I though when Cotto gave him hell in the 8th, that Mayweather start to bounce away and potshot Cotto the rest of the night to avoid damage. He came right back at Cotto and rocked him in the 12th. I'm not a huge Money Man fan now, but I respect him and would root him to beat most fighters now.
Benard Hopkins!!! I did not like him until I saw how easy he beat down Trinidad!!!

I've never disliked Pacquiao. And the result doesn't matter to me, Mayweather didn't fight him at a CW if you want to play that game, which isn't what this thread is about.

In the early 1960s Ali as Cassius Clay was a tuff pill to take!! I don't remember anyone liking him when he first appeared on the scene. No one thought he could get to a title shot!
Another one I didn't care for was Jimmy Young, I don't like a fighter who jusy boxes on the defense and rarely looks to control other than defense. I appreciate the timing skills it takes to accomplish this but he wasn't an edge of the seat fighter plus he was light handed.
Any fighter who disrespects his opponent! Why fight the guy if you have no respect for him, the win doesn't mean anything. I guess its the $$$$! Ray
