    I think so.

    It was a boxing clinic from Mayweather, as expected. Maybe now he'll fight someone his own size.

    Shane Mosley ?

    I'm sure he'd knock him around the ring too.

    Yeah.. I'd like to see him take on Mosley or Paul Williams. Now those would be real tests for Mayweather. Unfortunately, the don't 'sell' enough PPV for 'Money' so they're seen as high-risk low-reward fights.

    Was thinking if Mayweather won he would take on the winner of Cotto vs Pacquiao. Looks like Shane Mosely may off talked him-self into getting a fight now though.

    And as good as Mayweather was, the sky commentator was awful. Every sentance he was just inventing a new way to say how great Mayweather was and waiting for Jim Watt to agree with him, then repeating.

    He's too fucking fast. I wish give someone a whupping though, he's more than capable of doing it. Reminds me of Lennox - In/Out/In/Out/In/out until we all fall asleep.

    I can't see anyone getting close to Mayweather unless he shows some balls and fights an opponent at their preferred weight.

    Mayweather's ace, like fucking smoke. I'd pay someone to pull the fuckers feet out from underneath him in the twelfth just so I could get one good smack in before the final bell. Not that I'd make it to to the twelfth, I'd be lucky to make twelve minutes.

    The US commentary on my downloaded one just waxed lyrical for ages. All about stats of punches landed & how Mayweather was the greatest defence boxer of all time (a phrase used 7 times by the two commentators).

    Mayweather vs Gatti is still the best thing I've ever seen in boxing.

    He should tell Mosley to fuck off as he's a no one anymore. Pacqiuao is where it's at (and Floyd will KO him, as smaller and slower people have done before).

    If Mayweather truly wants to be considered the best, he'd challenge himself by going UP in weight classes and fighting some of the best in the 147, 154 and 160 division.. and not just winning belts for the sake of them from paper champions such as Carlos Baldomir or a fading ODLH.

    Sugar Ray Robinson first fought Jake Lamotta at a 16lbs weight disadvantage.. lost 1, won 4.

    Sugar Ray Leonard went up in weights, from welterweight right through to Super Middleweight! Went up against legends like Duran, Hitman Hearns and Marvin Hagler.

    Ali, well, is just Ali.. he couldn't go up in weight, but against all odds beat Liston, then the Government, then Frazier.. than of course, the killer that was Foreman.

    Mayweather simply hasn't tested himself. He's taken fights at the right time against the right people, at the right weight. The only person he took any sort of risk fighting was Hatton, and we all saw how that turned out. Hatton wasn't all that he was cracked up to be (another fighter who was hiding behind an unbeaten record at the time).

    Mayweather is far too much of a promoter/entertainer to be considered amongst the top echeleons of the All Time Greats.. whilst his natural talent could possibly be greater than all those listed above, his resumé certainly isn't. He's far too scared of losing his '0' to take any 'risky' fights, which is a shame because it really doesn't mean THAT much now that he's made a lot of money.

    Excellent summary. The ironic thing is that I reckon Mayweather would actually have a decent shot at coming through such tests. He hasn't proven it though, and I doubt he will now.

    He's moved up plenty of weight divisions

    Point is, though, he hasn't fought a REALLY serious threat all the way through.
