Again, you're clearly full of ****.
Floyd made it a point to consistently fight the #1, 2 and 3 in EVERY division. The best are the best regardless of how you feel things might have seemed "better" if Floyd would have done things your way.
What you fail to mention is that Floyd fought Hernandez in only his 18th fight. Floyd was taking on a HOF in his eighteenth fight .. while guys like Pacquiao didn't step up to the world stage until their 40th fight. Meanwhile Hernandez had only lost once before in his career and that was to Oscar DelaHoya.
Easily a better win than either Barrera or Morales. Corrales was the man to beat at SFW. He was young, undefeated and a KO machine when Floyd fought him.
Castillo was the best LW in the world when Floyd fought him. This is common knowledge. You can't get better than beating the best in a division .. although peasants seem to fool themselves into believing differently.
140 was Floyd's least accomplished division only because Kostya Tszyu refused to fight him by pricing himself out of a fight. Tszyu demanded a 60-40 split with 60% going to himself. He wouldn't budge. So Floyd moved on. Tszyu riding high off his win over Judah, fought Hatton next and the rest is history.
Floyd did more at 147 than even DLH did. It was in this division that Floyd showed the world that he could beat the best while allowing them to fight at their most comfortable weight. Brilliant performances.
What's most interesting about your ^^^ critique is that if you were to judge Pacquiao by the same criteria, then his whole WW and jrMW campaigns amount to nothing as Pacquiao wouldn't fight any WW not coming off of a loss or a loss followed up by a tune up. Every great fighter that Pacquiao faced at WW was beaten by someone else before Manny was willing to chance it.
^^^ Weak and laughable at best.
How do you duck a prime Williams who lost to gatekeeper Quintana right after beating Margarito?
How do you duck Margarito or Cotto who couldn't even hold on to the biggest wins of their careers for even 8 months? Both men lost in brutal fashion in their next fights!!
Stop the lying. It only hurts your opinions.
Prime Pacquiao? Hahahaha ... Pacquiao is still prime, but as long as he isn't draining WWs or jrMWs he'll always looked passed his supposed best. Puhleez.
So basically what you're saying is that Floyd fought and beat better competition at 154 than both DLH and Pacquiao in their careers? Yeah I think so too.
How could Floyd duck Winky Wright when Winky's last fight at 154 was in 2004??? Floyd was competing at jrWW at that point. So uhhh .. that kinda makes no sense whatsoever. The year that Floyd fought Hatton, Winky was up at LHW fight BHOP. Soooooooooooooo ........ oh well .. forget it. Because you've made it clear that its about how you feel.
Right because defeating the #1 ranked champion at 154 shouldn't make him a champion at all. Hahaha@ the logic or lack thereof.
Every great boxer without a true foil has been cast in the same light. Some just don't have a talent capable of testing them during their time. They are great nonetheless if they consistently face and beat the #1, 2 & 3 in the divisions they compete in.
Ali was said to be highly overrated during his active years. Only die hard Ali fans were calling him the greatest back then. We see how **** ended up though.
Ali was just as much a d!ck as Floyd. And the people both loved and hated him for it. The numbers don't lie. Just like they don't lie for Floyd either.
Consistency against the best and challenging and pushing one's self will always lead to greatness.
Hate the era. Don't hate the game.
WOW! You must be the worst ***** on BS... you bring nothing but biased opinions, I bring facts and give them my interpretation, but I don't try to pass them as facts.
"[Corrales] Easily a better win than either Barrera or Morales. Corrales was the man to beat at SFW. He was young, undefeated and a KO machine when Floyd fought him."
lol, I'm not wasting any more time with you.
