He needs to take on more opponents... some younger... some more experienced... THE WHOLE LOT!!! He mustn't back down from any challenges... so on and so forth!!! I respect him a little bit more... BUT HE STILL NEEDS TO PROVE HIMSELF!!! Who must "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather Jr. BEAT... WITHOUT CONTROVERSY... in order to really prove himself? ~ WT

I think maybe he should fight the winner of Cotto if he overcomes Judah, if not there's little point. The winner of Williams/Marg would also be a good fight. Spinks at 154 maybe, after that maybe Hatton as a long shot, but theres nobody else really needed.

There's plenty of people for him to fight. Mosley,margarito,cotto, hatton,taylor,oscar rematch. I personally would like to see him fight 4 more times in 2 years. Then he can hang it up. I would love to see him fight margarito next if beats williams just to silence the people that think margarito would whip him. Then i would like to see him fight mosley, Then hatton, then jump up to middleweight and fight jermain taylor. After that, he would be 42 and 0 with probabley still 24 knockouts. But he would be champion in 6 divisions and 8 time world champ.

How can floyd prove himself??? It isn't a question of who he fights. It's a question of HOW he fights. He will never be given credit if he continues to run, run, run. The only ones that will give him credit are his loyal fans. Like I said in another thread, fighters with the qualities of floyd come more often than fighters with the qualities of Trinidad, Chavez, Hagler, Sweat Pea, or even DLH himself.

If Ricky Hatton beats him... I will have total respect for The Hitman and he'll be my new # 1!

winky wright, ricky hatton, shane mosley.
Winky possibly if it would ever happen. Hatton most definitely yes. Mosley? I love Sugar Shane, but i dont think that he could do it against Floyd at this point in his career. Does Mayweather really need to "prove" himself? Of course the logical matchup would be the rematch with Oscar. Since there is some controversy over the outcome. Not from me but others.

If floyd wants to be remebered with the legends as ray leonard and robinson he has to fight these names and win.

1. RICKY HATTON
2. ANTONIO MARGARITO
3.SHANE MOSLEY

i think hatton and margarito have wat it takes to destroy floys but mosley may be too old and past it right now.

And if for any reason castillo beats hatton which i dont think will happen maybe a 3rd meeting?

the only way for Floyd to prove himself to this man is to come out and fight use the speed and skills to really beat a guy and not just get by him but he does not posses this instinct his nature tell him to run and hide. I will make a prediction right now Floyd is heading down the same road as Roy Jones did and eventually his lack of punching power and fast reflexes will not be enough to avoid the big shots from legit guys. he will slow down and the yourger guys speed up and then he will get ktfo justlike Roy quick and ugly!! Enjoy the ride now Floyd it won't last forever.

the money would be great for both guys, the fight would be PPV either side of the pond to, even oscar and floyd didn't acheive that, the last guys to do that were tyson v lewis.

Jesus i cant belive youre are raiting Ricky " no defense " Hatton too have a bigger chance of winning Mayweather than Miguel Cotto that is prob the biggest p4p puncher and bodtpuncher in the world today.

Imo Cotto would win Mayweather cause Mayweather has never faced such raw power as he will find in Cotto.

BF has a lot to prove.

1 SSM
2 "Hit Man"
3 Winky (now that he is fighting 154 pound fighters)
4 Cotto

And I think that he would lose everyone of those fights.
