Champion97's picture

One of the real highs of Floyd Mayweather's career.
I think Mayweather was challenged in this fight, certainly for 5 or 6 rounds, but fighting an opponent like Hatton seemed to bring more out of Mayweather, he made all the right adjustments, and when he Hatton where he wanted him, he let the shots go, finished him off, and I think, got one of the 3 best wins of his career.

Gold's picture

Just curious, where do you rate Hatton if you believe it to be a top three win for Mayweather? Personally, I think he is a hall of very good level guy, he just doesn't have the resume or eye test for me to be considered a hall of fame or all time great level boxer.

Champion97's picture

Now that I think about it, I think you're right, in the UK Hatton is very popular, that was sway you, but I don't know, he beat Tyszu, Castillo, Malignaggi, he's up there. I think Mayweather's best wins were Pacquiao, De La Hoya, maybe Corrales, Cotto, Canelo, but Hatton is up there, certainly top 10, maybe top 7.

I think Mayweather was the best of all time, you agree?

Gold's picture

Yeah, I have heard Ricky Hatton is more or less universally liked in the UK. The Kostya Tzsyu win was good, Tzsyu is a hall of fame level guy, but it was a really ugly fight and an older version of Tzsyu, Jose Luis Castillo was pretty shot at that point, and I never really rated Paulie Malignaggi. I don't really rate the Manny Pacquiao win very highly, after Pacquiao got knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez I thought he should have retired. Personally, I think Oscar De La Hoya was his best win. It wasn't the best version of De La Hoya but it was a pretty damn good one and he fought hard for the first half of that fight. Otherwise, I think the Corrales win was great given Diego Corrales was an undefeated pound for pound level fighter, Floyd totally destroyed him and Corrales went on to capture more championships. The Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto wins were great as well, both were bottom of the top ten pound for pound level guys and Floyd dominated Canelo and beat Cotto convincingly.

I personally don't think Mayweather was the best of all time if we are going by the definition of "best" meaning the most skilled and unbeatable in their prime. He certainly has an argument to be considered the best of all time though. Personally, I would say the best of all time is Roy Jones Jr. If by "best" you mean a combination of overall resume, skill, etc. I would say Mayweather is in the top 10 all time, the only "modern" boxers I would rate above him are Muhammad Ali and Roberto Duran and Ray Leonard is probably equal or slightly below Mayweather.

Champion97's picture

I've been active at two boxing clubs, and there are autographs, posters of his wins on the walls, he's very popular, the amount of support from fans over here that went to Vegas was massive. It depends what you mean by rate him, you have to rate any 2 time world champion fairly high, but I don't think he was ever a top level fighter. Castillo was shot yeah, but the way he won that fight was impressive, and Tysu had a bit left, that was a good win. I think the Canelo fight was the last we ever saw of Mayweather before he was very noticeably declined. Pacquiao probably used drugs, so don't forget that, and let's not forget, Mayweather was past his prime too, he is older than Pacquiao, I think you have to give him credit for that win, he boxed extremely well.

I mean simply, at their best, the best, and I certainly think Mayweather, but there are strong candidates aside from him. I think now, Crawford and Lomachenko are the top 2, I don't think either are quite as good as a prime Mayweather, they'd take him to pieces now, and he knows that, but in his prime, I think even they wouldn't quite beat him, I think Mayweather was that good.

Santa Cruz vs Mares II who you got?

Gold's picture

Paulie was pretty weak for a two-weight champion, he lost every big fight he was ever in except for beating a past his prime Juan Diaz. He deserves some respect considering he won those two championships though. I agree he has declined since the Canelo fight, but him in his declined form was still extremely good. I don't think saying Pacquiao used steroids is a relevant point, he definitely did to fly up the weight classes that quickly. Mayweather almost certainly did as well. Pacquiao's ring age was a lot higher than Mayweather's at that point, he had been in a ton of wars, been knocked out cold, and relied more on athleticism which had declined more than Mayweather. I think Pacquiao is a top 10 win of Floyd's for sure, but it wasn't what it could have been if he would have widely decisioned 2009-2011 era Pacquiao, that would have been an all-time great win.

Yeah, I think there are some fighters at Lightweight such as Duran and Welterweight such as Hearns, Leonard, and Duran (from the first Leonard fight) that could have conceivably beaten prime Pretty Boy and Money Mayweather respectively. I think Floyd would beat Lomachenko today and could beat Crawford right now, but I don't think either of them is anywhere close to prime Mayweather at the moment.

I'll take Santa Cruz as long as he stays the course and boxes Mares. If Mares can force the fight into more of his style, I think he has a shot of winning but Mares has some miles on him and is theoretically on the downside of his career.

Champion97's picture

Certainly did very well against Cotto and Broner. He also beat the guy who beat Hatton in his comeback fight, Judah as well (I know he was well past prime, but so was Paulie, good win). He was declining, but knew it, and was intelligent enough to make fights work for himself. I don't either to be honest, Mayweather was too smart to let him take an advantage like that into the ring, sneaky though, he tried to get toroidal in his body, he got turned down though. Don't think so, but part of that is me hoping he didn't. But you've got to remember how he boxed there, he nullified Pacquiao, had a lot to spare at the end, and Pacquiao only did better against Bradley after fighting Mayweather, that wasn't rapid decline, that was a great fighter fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. They were both better at that point, Pacquiao more so?, maybe, but let's not forget how Mayweather beat him, at least 8-4, probably wider. It is Pacquiao's fault for not taking the random drug tests.

Well I just simply disagree, unless you have a time machine, we are not finding out. I don't see that in a million years, boxing is about timing, I just think Mayweather would be dismantled. I think it is close, but I don't think they are quite as good. You are not sold on Lomachenko are you? He is facing a tough test against Linares.

Gold's picture

He did well against Cotto, I agree. That is probably the best performance of his career. Broner was out of his weight range and was a good stylistic matchup, I know that is a controversial fight for some but I think Broner won convincingly. The Judah fight was probably his best win which says a lot considering it's a shot Zab Judah. Mayweather certainly did did nullify Pacquiao and outboxed him, but as I said previously, I don't weigh that as high as the others. Pacquiao should have never lost to Bradley in the first place in my view. To my understanding, the earlier negotiations failed mostly because of the purse and promotional split even though the drug testing was a component.
Yeah, that is all theoretical, regarding Duran, Hearns, and Leonard. Hearns would be the ultimate nightmare matchup for Floyd, a way taller, way longer aggressive boxer-puncher with an unreal jab, huge punch and great fundamentals. I don't think Floyd could expose his chin either like Ray Leonard did. I would put money on Mayweather to win versus Lomachenko today. Lomachenko is too small and doesn't have the style to threaten Mayweather, even this aged version. Even if I seem like I am talking down on Lomachenko, I still have him third on my pound for pound list. Lomachenko has improved since he fought Salido, but Salido showed some fundamental issues with Lomachenko that haven't been exposed since possibly he hasn't fought a similar caliber fighter with that style. In the early parts of that fight, Salido was just straight up outboxing and outworking Lomachenko, especially on the inside. I am also not sold on Lomachenko's resume as a whole but we have discussed that previously. Linares will be a good test because of his size and great offense, but I don't really think Linares can win, Linares has some suspect defense and has fallen apart before. Lomachenko vs. Mikey Garcia is the fight to make for me, Garcia can beat him in my view.

I was rooting for The Hitman in this one.

Mayweather's inside mauling with his Wing Chun-esque sticky hands was savage.
