Mayweather IMO is one of the greatest at 130lb (Super Featherweight), in the same company with Alexis Arguello, Henry Armstrong, Julio Cesar Chavez. He had to adapt his style the further he moved up weight class. I believe the majority of the kids here have only watched his bouts post Oscar which really doesn't compare stylistically to his efforts at 130 & 135. His virtuoso performances against an undefeated Corrales & Hernadez are a sight to behold and are terribly underrated in contrast to his recent efforts.
Mayweather and Pacquiao are the greatest of their particular era. It's a shame they never fought at their primes regardless of whose fault 'we' were robbed of a great event in which the eyes of the world would be on Boxing. I believe the fight will happen, rather than a Frazier v Ali I FOTC type bout we'll have to settle with a Lewis v Tyson type scenario. Both great ATG's.
