I think he'd beat Garcia, Broner and Maidana. The only guy that may get the win is Garcia and that's because of his power and boxing ability, but Broner clearly can't fight well on the back foot and if he tries to walk Manny down he'll take combinations to the face and by the time he tries to counter Manny will be at one side of him. Maidana will get the Khan treatment again.
Never mentioned Floyd but I can break him down just as easy.
Canelo - Slow plodder forward, hand made for Floyd, also its highly arguable he lost his last fight vs Austin, also Canelo had one fuck of a padded record. Also catchweight so fuck Floyd fucking hypocrite.
Cotto - shop worn and Mayweather still couldn't put him away. Mayweather can say what he likes wether it be he wanted to give fans a good fight or whatever, but really then he lost that mental edge and fought somebody elses fight.
Guerrero - Who the fuck is this guy? Talks himself into the fight, he was there to make Mayweather look good.
Ortiz - Bullshit on both ends.
Mosley - Too old end of.
Marquez - Too weight blown, and can't fight offensively.
As Mayweather says, easy work.
I love how people criticize Pac and say oh these guys are tailor made for him, But really every single one of the guys in that list are tailor made for Mayweather since there all aggressors, the majority of those guys simply come forward, and the guy that could fight on the backfoot,Marquez, was too bloated. too slow.
End of story
Also nobody answered my question, how come Bob Arum made the DelaHoya fight but Mayweather has a problem with him?

Man MG, you're starting to sound like that teenager KOPower, really. NOW, the same arguments about Manny's opponents of choice, can be made about Floyd's (as you've done above). The only difference is, these guys were coming off of WINS.
Canelo- Of course guys are crying about the 2 pound catchweight, but Canelo came in at 153.5 for the Trout fight, which is only a half lb under the weight limits. Guys defend Manny's 2 lb catchweight against Cotto, and say that Cotto came into the Clottey fight at 146, so the ONE lb shouldn't have made a difference. I guess it's just a difference of opinions here.
Cotto- why hate on that fight? So, was he in ELITE shape for the Manny fight??? Didn't think so. How can say that Floyd couldn't put him away? How long has it been since Floyd's legitimately KO'd somebody??? C'mon now MG...
Guerrero- I didn't fully agree with that fight either, but he was coming off of two wins. The same could be said about Bradley when he fought Manny...who is/was he? Didn't Bradley "talk himself" into a Manny fight???
Ortiz- why hate on this fight? Ortiz/Berto was easily FOTY in 2011, and that was the biggest statement of Ortiz's career (the Berto fight). I didn't agree with the way it ended, but under the circumstances in which it was made...no problem there.
Mosley- Let's cut the "he was too old" stuff, please. He had a good round, and got outgunned for the rest of the fight. had he stopped Floyd in the 2nd, the people would've been singing his praises. Oh, let me take that back, they would've just clowned Floyd for getting starched by an old guy. So it's good enough for him to be "old", had he stopped Floyd, but it's not good enough for him to be "old", when he clocked Floyd in the 2nd, but couldn't do anything else with him for 10 more rounds???? C'mon now...
Marquez- I agree with you...I hated the fact that it even took place. No argument there. People can stretch the story by praising Floyd's performance after 2 years off, but hell, that's like praising Razor Ramon for a "flawless" performance after 2 years, against the likes of Rey Mysterio. Lol
Again, we can all poke holes in both guys' resume, but the fact is, Manny's opponents were coming off of LOSSES (excluding Bradley), and Floyd's opponents were coming off of WINS.
