Prince Naseem beats Floyd with his hands down.

Floyd avoided Naz- jumping up weights so he didn't have to fight the master

Let's add some more to the list that haven't been mentioned.

Barry Mac - another great featherweight who may have given it to Floyd on the night. He had a long reach for his height and he was tough as bricks. I don't think Floyd would have fought well in the cold open air of Belfast against an extremely hostile crowd. Sure he's faced hostility before but never like what's exhibited by those in Belfast, you must experience it to understand.

Jim Mcdonnell - Another class operator who was incredibly gifted, one of those to have all the championship skill but never got a world title around his waist.

Salvador Sanchez, Willie Pep, Henry Armstrong, Alexis Arguello. I mean I could sit here and type another 20 names. Against another all time great, Floyd doesn't have it inside of him when it's not going his way. He'll start crying foul to the ref, and he's been doing that since his Olympic days.

That is funny. I am born on April fools day also.



Is Lil Floyd the best featherweight ever? No



Notable boxers from that division:



Flash Elorde



Escalera



Azumah Nelson



And the one that would have steamrolled Floyd: Julio Cesar Chavez



The 3 Amigos: Marquez, Morales, Barerra (Floyd avoided them at that time)



Then the boxer that became the Mexican assassin,who fought them all, fighter of the decade: PACMAN







Hamed might of knocked Floyd out,not sure, but who would you rather pay to see fight at that time? Floyd or Naz? Naz hands down.



Floyd was not the best featherweight or the most entertaining.



Floyd was actually jumping up and down at his ringside seat watching Pac vs Morales. How many people jump out of their seats watching Floyd fight?



Watch this video and look at Floyd jumping up and down cheering for Pac. One of the best fights period.

Had the question detailed featherweights (rather than super featherweights), I would have - controversially or not - included Prince Naseem Hamed.

He was unique, unlike many other fighters, exciting, dynamic and in some ways better than Floyd.

"Who are the top super featherweights of all time? It's an often forgotten weight class historically, seeing as the original ones had/have the most prestige.

Who round out the Top 5?"


Floyd would be up there and one of the best.

He certainly went for the kill more at the lighter weights.

But, equally good - if not better - arguments can, or may be, be made for . . .

Sandly Saddler, Azumah Nelson, Alexis Arguello, Barney Ross, Flash Elorde, and maybe also Manny Pacquiao and Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.

I'm going to b surprised if the insurance companies pay out in full for a client that is actually deemed/found liable.

If so the underwriters costs and policies' premiums woud potentially be more than the writ to which they may apply.

Holla.

What people don't understand and is apparently not being informed about, is elite boxers, promoters and a lot of the media have big insurance regarding lawsuits. And since Money May kept up his installment payments, not a single penny is coming out of his pockets.

Those rotten Rock heads -- I mean Rahman brothers' -- pops Hisham Rahman know this. And I know that his informed his sons.

After Rahman beat Lennox back in the day, Rahman betrayed his promoter/manager and ran off to Da Don K for more in the rematch than by his then present manager/promoter. Lawsuit insurance that Rahman had came in dandy. The manager/promoter was paid nicely by the insurance firm. And Hi sham got he kayoed in the rematch and short-changed and out by the wolves by Da Don K.

Habitual lawsuiting pencil necks are down because of the insurance money, not boxers' money. More pugs don't have the type of money that you believe because of short-changed purses, bad spending habits and expenses for the team and hanger-ons.

There are optical illusions all up in the game's grill. Money May, advised by tsAH, has some mad insurance that pay off all types of syet. And beat the heck outta frivious lawsuits and/or make them settle cheaply. Holla!

"This should be one heckuva fight.

In his last outing, Sadam Ali was off--terribly off. He blamed it on having starved himself in training because of Ramadan. If that's true. Ali has said this has been his best training camp. For him, hopefully it was. That's because Luis Carlos Abregu also had a fine camp.

This truly can be a show stealer, as well as a delicious appetizer for the main course.

Dude is a big-excuse-making liar. He is just playing people who aren't knowledgeable about Ramadan for fools. Amir Khan pull the same shenanigans.

The smart promoters know what it is and would not even match a weaking, starving fighter, who -- if he is doing that -- he is doing it in pure ignorant.

30 April 1. Why do you ask? My age is inconsequential, however, because I'm a walking, living encyclopedia of sports dating back to around 1914 and have been since I was around seven. Plus there's such a thing called "Google" for historical lookups should my memory fail me.

Maybe they can pin their heavyweight hopes on 21-0 Lucas Browne?

As for Leapai, sorry, but he just ain't the one. His bark is bigger than his bite!

Lucas Browne would probably KO Leapai – he could have done that to Toney in the final rounds of their last fight.

Either the fight showed that Scott indeed has some some boxing ability or that Leapai has none.

Sadly and obviously, it's the latter - as you have rightly guessed and I have always suspected.



This is why, up until now, I have remained relatively quiet about Leapai.

"I was joking but some toady has to replace Ellerbe why not Love? He just got knocked out and will do whatever Floyd tells him.

What does Arias talking to Rahmans have to do with any lawsuits?

A video is out there with Arias confronting Floyd.Here is an article on it:

Following the heated argument, Arias spoke about what transpired in the video :

"Basically on Saturday night, I was at home sleeping with my baby. I received a phone call in the middle of the night from J'Leon Love, saying that I was about to get released from Mayweather Promotions. Mind you it's the middle of the night. I was like 'okay, until i hear it from Floyd's mouth I'm going to continue doing what I've been doing,'" Arias said.

"I went to the gym on Monday, Floyd is there and I was going there to work out," Arias continued. "I went up to him and said ‘what's up.' He said ‘what's up' and looked away. He was leaving on his way out to the gym and you can see in the video that I approached him. I felt that the way he handled releasing me was very unprofessional. How are you going to have someone that I've been cool with, since I was a kid, tell me some foul sh*t like that. I felt that was bogus."

"To make things clear, how are you going to release me when you don't have me on contract and I'm clearly the best fighter you got. You give me no explanation on why you're releasing me and I approached him. I said 'you're not going to say nothing to me, you're just going to ignore me.' I thought that was real foul. He owns the company and this is his show and I thought that was real foul."

"When J'Leon approached me, I told him 'this has nothing to do with you.' I just felt Floyd should have called me himself. He should have called me and said 'I'm mad at this, this and this and I'm going to release you' and then I can't say nothing. All I can say is 'Floyd, I respect you' and thank him for the opportunity. All I've done is thank him for the last two years. I've taken all these fights and not complained. I haven't always got the best opponents and I never complained. I should have been on TV and I never complained. I've been quiet and winning for him. I got the most wins for this company since the very beginning. I've been playing my role."

Arias then went on to explain that he attributes his release to his close relationship with the Rahman's, who are currently suing Mayweather over that infamous 31-minute sparring session.

"Honestly, I think it ," he said. "There is no other reason behind it. That has to be what it is... When I had no money, when I had no place to stay, when I had no food, when I was trying to find my way into the game - they was taking care of me. I'm literally a part of their family. I can't turn my back on them when they helped me when I had no food and Floyd wasn't even . That's what it came down to, my relationship with the Rahmans. I understand Floyd doesn't want me associating with them, but I can't turn my back on them. That is over something that I have no control over. That whole situation has nothing to do with me.""


Wow, sounds like Arias got a little burnt there and found out what was really expected of him in terms of "loyalty".

The next 6 months will be interesting in terms of what it means for TMT and all the termites running through all their member's and groupies' heads.

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF.----A packed crowd on Thursday saw both a boxing and mixed martial arts card at the historic Florentine Gardens in Hollywood. The action began with Atlanta’s Gabriel Braxton facing New York City’s Juan Roman in a super bantamweight clash that could have easily been placed 3,000 miles away in the Eastern seaboard. Instead here they were in Hollywood, with Roman making his pro debut. Roman seemed tentative at first as he gauged his distance against the taller Braxton in the opening stanza. In round two, things began to...

The champ can take a punch. You can see in his three title fights with Marco Huck, how he eats right hands and lefts hooks, then keeps on his feet. Not even Huck, the top 200 pounder in the world could make him kiss canvas, nor could the 25 others who have laced up against him in prize fights. But like the fighters say, it's the punch you don't see coming that puts you on your butt, and the same can be said about life. The champ already knows.
