It's early to start talking about this fight, but I think it's safe to say this is the fight to make at Welterweight.I know Mayweather wants a break and he deserves it, but now is the time to make these fights when he's still at peak level.If these two superstars fought it could unify the WBC,WBA & RING Titles which would be something neither man has done.Also, Mayweather wouldn't have to work with Golden Boy on this one either.He could get back at Arum for all the negative things he has said about Floyd.Personally, I think Floyd should take this fight in 2008.It would advance his Legacy even further and it's a fight he can win and look good.Cotto has improved, but so has Mayweather over the years.I think Mayweathers defense and skills would take him to a decision victory.Cotto can be hit often if the right gameplan is put in place.I believe Mayweather is still very quick and has the experience advantage over Cotto.This fight would sell and possibly be an instant classic.

I think Mosley is the man to trouble Floyd, the loopy right, MAY be able to go over that shoulder at times and his jab is very good, not to mention, his arms are LOOOONNNGGGGGG, it will give Mayweather some problems.

I dont think Cotto can beat Mayweather, just too methodical and predictable, Mayweather will adapt to him, tie him up on the inside, move and pot shot! Though, Cotto would give him a tough fight, but then again, I thought both Corrales and Hatton would also!

Undecided on Williams still, while I do think he is a very good welter and will give any of the top guys a LOT of problems and could potentially beat them, Im not sure how he would go against the likes of Mayweather.

Maybe Paul "The Punisher" Williams should get a bit more experience at the big stage before he fights someone like Mayweather jr. But there is no doubt in my mind that he is the fighter that would cause the most difficulties for Mayweather jr. Not Cotto! Not Margarito! or Mosley!

Don't get me wrong.... I'm not saying Williams would dominate Cotto or anything like that. It's a different story... But I do believe Mayweather jr. would feel most uncomfortable in the ring with Williams, and that the outcome of that fight would be much more uncertain than with any of the other fighters (above). I would love to see them in the same ring.

You were probably referring to Mayweathers personality when you, in another post, said he is one of the "strangest" talents to grace the sport(?), but speaking about strange... Williams! That dude is beyond strange. And a very welcomed freak in the sport (we miss you Hearns). (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Yes, the style of Williams, including the height, makes him very strange! An awkward customer! Hearns was not too strange, very tall, magnificent boxer, who never knew when to tie up!

What makes Mayweather so weird for me, is not his personality, Zab, Roy are similar to him, giant egos and money obsessessed!

The fact that Mayweather knows EXACTLY when to tie up, when to turn out, when to dance, the fact that he watches every single thing and uses his timing to hit all kinds of little openings he sees with that incredible vision and the fact that he can use that shoulder so damn well, is what makes him so so strange. I have never seen anything quiet like him in the history of the sport. Even watching footage on the other defensive wizards like Benny Leonard, Willie Pep or even a guy like Pea, just dont quiet do it like Mayweather. They are more cagey and movers, keeping out of the killzone and using subtle head movements. Mayweather can just lie on the ropes, make opponents miss and watch everything enabling him to pick them off at the same time. Very very weird indeed! He just seems to suck their energy out of them while his own back is on the ropes, incredible capability to just be able to absorb it with so much ease! Kind of reminds me of a black hole, that just sucks things in and then destroys them. He used the same style against Hatton, against Ndou, and these were two of his most brutal, destructive and impressive fights. He ruined Ndou, lets hope he didnt ruin Hatton.....
