Where is his name in the OP? Is Floyd the only undefeated fighter in boxing history?

You can if you are a gym rat, also if you have good trainers to guide you along

sparring helps with rust as well, have you read the suger ray lennord book or was it a in his documentary, the man was a genius and explains what I am trying to say so so well

Being undefeated in itself doesn't mean squat, it's about who you beat and how much you accomplish.

That being said, yeah for the last 6 years Floyd has been fighting guys who were either #1 or top 3 in their weightclass and some of them were in the top 10 P4P. Under those conditions it's hard to stay undefeated so he deserves tons of props.

Nobody has been ducking anyone.

If Mayweather was really ducking Emmanuel, he would have been emboldened to face him after JMM made him look less than ordinary back in 2011. Then after Bradley did.

This KO just goes to prove how overhyped Pacquiao truly was.

If a LW can do this to Pacquiao, Floyd would have gone back to prison for muder behind what would have happened to Emmanuel in the ring.

Katsidis did better than Pacquiao did in this fight. At least Katsidis made it to the 9th. Wow.

Being undefeated is overrated as hell.

Name one top 10 ATG that was undefeated?

If you're fighting as often as you're supposed to against the best opposition available then losing comes with the territory.

The only fighters who have remained undefeated throughout their entire careers are those fighters who never sought to constantly challenge themselves against equally matched opposition.

Not if you are ultra-disciplined. From what I've heard, Mayweather is a gym rat and doesn't allow himself to get out of shape. I don't think he's getting worse as a result of his inactivity.
