Ppl trash Floyds competition but praise their favorite fighters opponents when they aren't fighting the same level of opponents consistency.
He was a great promoter and marketer and boxer, I give him a lot of credit for that. Nothing really wrong with taking the highest reward/lowest risk fights most of the time. It's boxing, it's dangerous so you have to make sure you are getting paid otherwise it can be a stupid profession.

- Who ducked him in his younger days when the fight could have been made?

Floyd does have a great all around resume, but one still has to analyze his later fights/overall resume objectively and realize a lot the big names on there were not at their best, either weight or age/prime wise, and he also never went on the road to fight. Fighting a great fighter outside of their prime/weight at home is not necessarily better than fighting a really good fighter in their prime at a neutral or road location. Usually it's not.

I think Floyd's resume would stack up well against about any current fighter but it wouldn't necessarily blow some of them out of the water. There are some current fighters that have or are building a pretty impressive resume themselves.

Floyd was great...but man you gotta admit in his later days he was fighting guys at the right time and on his terms (weight etc)...just the way it was.

Also as far as losses coming into fights - ODLH was 2-2 in his last 4...Mosley was 8-5 in his last 13...Judah was coming off a loss...Mitchell was 1-1 in his last 2...Berto was 3-3 in his last 6...Pac was 3-2 (or 4-1 if given credit to the Bradley win, but the L was a bad KO)...Maidana was 6-2 going into the first fight...Cotto was 3-1 with a bad KO loss and a few wars...Ortiz was 5-1-1 in last 7...Corley was coming off a loss...

Just make sure when you analyze his later fights that you also analyze Manny under the very same criteria, report youre findings will you, fight for fight same criteria .

Honestly I'm not really a Manny fan so I don't have any real interest in that...I thought Floyd won that fight 8-4 pretty easy, but I do think he waited Manny out...my personal opinion

Well Manny resume is very relevant to Floyd same era lots of common opponents from 130 on same weight classes , you cannot be negative on Floyds resume and be positive on Mannys.

If you dont want to pick Manny then who of this era can you compare Floyd resume to he trumps them all, and for every fighter and every single fight has if buts around them, simply because you can never make everybody happy at the same time.

Like I said if you want analyze Floyds resume it must referenced against somebody along the same time frame, you cannot turn a blind eye to A while criticizing B for doing the same thing.
