Nobody here can really blame Floyd for doing what he was suppose to do to Guerrero last Saturday night. Hey, if you didn't pay to see his fight, then you can't really say $hit. Now on the other hand, even if you did shell out money for the ppv or even bought tickets and expected to see somethng different from Floyd, then you're the sucker for giving him your money. I mean, it's no secret that Floyd has outstanding boxing skills, but it's also no secret that he cherry picks opponents that pose no threat to those skills. i.e. Martinez, Canelo, and countless others ,not to even mention Pacquiao because just like Paul Williams, it's irrelevent at this point due to circumstances.

Praising Mayweather for his last few fights is one thing. But praising his overall boxing legacy is a whole different story. I mean, can you imagine if someone like De La Hoya in his prime was to play duck duck goose in the 90s? Even a dehydrated Oscar was willing to fight a primed Pacquiao. and Mayweather, or even a Hopkins and a primed Mosley just to name a few. Despite those losses to these fighters, I myself would still consider De la hoya's legacy way above that of Floyd's. Come on guys, wake up and smell it. History is not that far where you can't go back and compare what it takes to have a great legacy in boxing.

I don't know about you, but I grew up watching boxing under the impression that, if you want to be considered the best, you have to fight the best. No ifs, buts, or ducks and semi-retirements. Again, Floyd is good at what he does, but legacy wise, we'd have to learn to take it with a grain of salt. Just sayin'.
