MOSLEY-CMON SON. PAST PRIME
name me a bona fide without doubt hall of famer that floyd beat that was in their prime.
Castillo has a shot to get in eventually man. Best LW of his era, 2x LW champ, wins over Bazan-Johnston-Lazcano-Diaz-Corrales-Casamayor, and he very well could have had a win over Floyd.
Corrales also has a shot eventually as well. 4x champ in 2 weight class, wins over Garcia-Manfredy-Gainer-Casamayor-Freitas-Castillo.
Hatton has a shot as well. 3x champ in 2 weight class, wins over Tszyu-Urango-Maussa-Lazcano-Malignaggi, the Tszyu win helps him a lot. Even though Tszyu was past his prime-still good, he was still #3 P4P and the linael JWW champ when Hatton beat him.
Mosley and Oscar were past their prime but they were still good fights at those times. Oscar was a Top SWW, the only legit title holder there other then Spinks. And Mosley was #3 P4P, WBA WW champ, and one of the top 1-2 WW's after he beat Margarito down. He was considered the man at 147 when Floyd fought him.
And Marquez was past his prime-still good, and arguably just beat Manny at the same weight. Floyd should get some props for that, and Marquez was #2 P4P at the time. Not an ATG win or anything, but a solid/good win for sure now that he proved he can fight well at that weight.
