Floyd is easily a greater more accomplished boxer than Holmes and it's not really all that close. And that's meant as no knock against Holmes seeing as though he's one of my top 10 personal favorite boxers of all time.


Ok.. But what do you think would have happened to Floyd if he got hit flush with a Ernie Shavers right hand...?

Floyd...

Holmes has some solid wins but his best win is Norton who was still good but not prime...I thought he beat Spinks the 2nd time and Cooney is a good win...

Floyd hasn't beat any PRIME great fighters but Judah, Hatton, Corrales, Castillo, Ortiz are solid wins and although Oscar was old, Cotto wasn't Cotto anymore, and Marquez was at 147 they are still respectable wins...not to mention the Marquez win looks a whole lot better now...

Regardless Floyd's legacy will always be stained for not fighting Pacquiao...

EDIT: Forgot about Holmes' wins over Shavers, that 2nd fight was brutal, I mean Holmes was beating the living **** outta Shavers and he wouldn't go down towards the end...I still give the nod to Floyd but its close
