I'm not 100% sure that Mayweather will beat De La Hoya, but will pick him if
they fight. Mayweather is faster, younger, and fresher than the Golden Boy.

Mayweather is not looking past Judah, the majority of the boxing community
and experts are simply bacause on paper, he should win this fight based on
Judah last poor performance and Mayweather current p4p #1 status.

Ummm, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is all champion and his p4p status can't be
questioned. Don't worry, if they fight, Mayweather Jr. will defeat Miguel
Cotto or Ricky Hatton. Zab Judah is still a somewhat formidable opponent who
at his "A" level boxing game, brings something uniqe to the table. I'm
curious, as most are, as to just how GOOD Floyd will look against a speedy
boxer like Zan Judah.
>You got to keep proving yourself the best IMO.
Do you want me to name just some of the elite fighters Floyd Mayweather Jr.
has beaten to be the best IMO? here is just a couple to keep in mind:
Mayweather Jr. toppled the likes of : Genaro Hernandez, Jose Luis Castillo
(twice), Diego Corrales, Sharmba Mitchell, Victoriano Sosa, Jesus Chavez,
Angel Manfredy, and Goyo Vargas.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. took significant risks against Corrales and Castillo,
so simply put, his heart and courage can't be questioned. He's even taking a
small risk by fighting a wild card fighter like Zab Judah because Floyd is
supposed to win and anything less than a good performance will have critics
and Mayweather haters jumping all the way down his throat.
I will say that while Mayweather Jr. is already a Hall of Fame caliber
boxer, that he does have to beat a few more top notch fighters if he wants
to truly rank amongst the guys like = Willie Pep, Carlos Monzon, and Bob
Foster. And if Mayweather beats the likes of Hatton, Margarito, and Mosley,
maybe he can mentioned in the same breath as Ali or Sugar ray Robinson.
Mayweather Jr. has lots more work to do, just let the man have some time to
get it done.
We don't even know yet
