seriously though, cracked me up with the sir, sir.
Okay, but it WAS a marvelous post. That's how you tell someone off that's messing with you.

I was genuinely delightfully taken aback because I didn't expect anyone to actually call me sir.

I really appreciated the post and maybe calling you a smart ass wasn't the right phrase to convey that but I thought you were being cheeky with the sir for levity. My thanks was genuine.

If I had to pick just one I would go with Sugar Ray Leonard at 147.

I would think Castillo and Maidana are the obvious choices since, ya know... that is what they actually did.


Now, to do it and repeat the act?
There's a lot to chose from, but again, looking to his contemporaries:

Why didn't he fight Pacquiao at 140 when they were both on top?


Does anyone here even rank Floyd in the top 5 at 135 or 147? Top 10 at 135 seems feasible, but anything more is boderline atrocious. I think he's the best Jr. Lw in hypothetical head-to-head matches but that's only because he is so much bigger than everyone else. I think Arguello, Chavez and Lomachenko are all better P4P, but they'd all be giving up size and uh... chemistry to the pre-VADA Mayweather.

You're welcome. I can be a goofball sometimes though. And thanks. Never been called cheeky before. I think someone called my butt that once though. Maybe a girlfriend haha.

Any elite-level southpaw with a persistent scoring jab should give Floyd problems - especially late in his career.
