Who took on the more dangerous opponents over the last 5 years. Floyd or Sergio?
Right now it's the beginning of 2013.
So let's go back to the end of 2007/ beginning of 2008.
Floyd fought a lot less over the last 5 years.. but overall still pretty dangerous opposition.. despite all of them either being retarded or past prime.

Martinez for sure. Williams would have dogged Floyd out. Floyd hand picks his fights where Martinez fights anybody put in front of him!

Chavez Jr, Macklin, Barker, weren't seen as much of a threat or dangerous opponents by anyone. Macklin and Barker did better than people thought they would do, doesn't make them dangerous. Chavez Jr had one good round, doesn't make him dangerous.
In the end, they each have 4 dangerous fights in the last 5 years. Hatton in 2007 is like 6 years ago. Since I mentioned Dzinzurl for Martinez, who was coming up in weight, I also mentioned Marquez for Floyd who was coming up in weight.

Martinez fought twice as many guys and the guys Floyd fought were not that dangerous at the time he fought them. Martinez fought Pavlic and Williams close to their prime and they were dangerous then. Mosley was to old, Marquez was not adjusted to the heavier weight and Hatton was not a very dangerous welterweight. Cotto had seen better days and Ortiz was a one hit wonder who choked under pressure. Macklin and Chavez Jr. were top 5 middleweights in their prime at the time Martinez fought them and were at least as good at middleweight as Ortiz was at welterweight so overall Martinez faced more fighters and a more dangerous bunch in my opinion.

Very smart move to try and make Martinez look good. His career just started in 2009 when he beat Pavlik and Williams. Before that, he was fighting 4, 6, and 8 round fights while fighting fighters who were 3-35. But sure, he has fought the "better" competition (even though Floyd fought two guys in the top 5 pound for pound during that time, but thats neither here nor there).

I give Sergio credit for Cintron, Williams, Pavlik, Dzinziruk, Macklin, and Chavez.
I give Floyd credit for Hatton, Marquez, Mosley, Ortiz, and Cotto.
