Not saying he has to, or that he needs much more to prove in order to justictify his place as the greatest of this era. But can you imagine how much more money, how much more power, how much more respect he'd acquire had he finish off Cotto, Guerrero, Mosley, Marquez, De La Hoya when he had them all hurt. I doubt the whole Mayweather-Pacquiao dream fight would be much of a 9th wonder of the boxing general world. IMO along with his skill-set that we know him by today, there wouldn't be room for any dispute when ever you brought his name up because he'd be the complete package. Again, don't get me wrong, Mayweather has it all... Or almost. That one thing he lacks ever since jumping to WW and which I believe is a reason he even started fighting guys toe 2 toe, is for a better win KO%, which if he was able to produce against those for 5 names, would bring him much more fortune and fame. #wishfulthinking

Agree/Disagree with this post?

Also, if Mayweather was a power puncher along with the skill-set he already has, would that put him above most, if not all past greats?

Good Point C, though I think he would've gotten some form of credit with Oscar being that, that was Floyd's first trip to that weight, but all n all, can't argue this.

Shit, I totally forgot the Oscar fight. A knockout would've done miracles for him, but then again, it would've totally wiped out all of this talk about him no truly being a Jr. MW and so on. His list of ducked opponents would've surely increased after that. I remember him talking about the Oscar fight being a massacre and so on...the world still awaits.

I totally reason and agree with this ^^^.

Also, far from because he doesn't have many ko's to his credit, Mayweather is not ascribed by some the level of greatness he deserves, more because of his reputation and perceived personality outside of the squared ring. Boxing experts and scholars have emotions too.

I concur. I was hoping that you would disagree with me a bit, so we could make this a bigger discussion. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) You've disagreed with me before and it made for a cool discussion, especially since you know your stuff!

I appreciate your kind words, Cshel. The fact is that you don't shy away from making your points, and a vast majority of them I consider sound, as with other posters on here, and so I don't comment on those if I don't think I can add value.

Plus, wait for this - you do present a lot of entertainment, such as when you were putting it on Allmenjoi8! LOL.

Will she ever come back? Or did I miss a comeback? I wonder. :-)
