Any klitschko fight unless it's against each other.

By the way I have a quick question for everyone that said they don't want to see Martinez vs mayweather. I know all your reasons were because of the weight difference. So is it that Martinez will be just to big and end up just beating the shit out of Floyd easily? If yes then I can understand why you don't want. But I see it being competitive and a good fight reguardless of weight. Floyds a master and would make it competitive. And for that I'd love to see that fight. Do y'all ever want to see Floyd test himself mentally and physically in a situation where the outcome isn't obvious and he has a huge chance at losing?

Cant speak for everyone but personally, I think its lose/lose for Floyd. If he beats Martinez, he just beat a guy who we all know he is better than skill wise. If he loses, it doesnt necessarily mean Martinez is better than him. You cant even use the "styles make fights" reasoning. Much like if Roy would have lost to Ruiz, all it would have meant is that he shouldnt gave gone that far up in weight. Plus, it gives the casual fans a whole new list of fighters at 154 that Floyd is ducking. Thus, a lot of quality fights at 147 probably wont get made. I personally feel welterweight is the most compelling and competitive division in the sport. Id rather see Floyd continue his legacy fighting ppl his size rather than trying to take an unnecessary risk that, in my eyes, doesnt prove anything either way. Thats just my opinion though.

I guess we look at it differently. It's not a lose/lose for Floyd. If he steps up and fought Martinez and say floyd won. It would boost is status big time as one of the greatest of all time It would be. And he only people that would be saying oh he is better skill wise and he should have won anyways are the one that dont know squat and who cares what they say. .Floyd would get unbelieveably huge credit for beating Martinez, more than any other fight he's had. If Martinez ended up blowing him out the water than people would say the weight made a huge difference and the same would be said if he lost a completive fight. There is no shame in losing a fight that you are mentally and physically testing yourself.
