Floyd called out Mosley years before it didn't happen sorry bud but after Mosley smashed Tony there were many posts on this forum saying Floyd would never set foot in a ring with a fighter like Mosley he did and he schooled him that's my point.
Reread what I post and its directed toward Mal using Mals logic both MAB and EM were finished when Manny fought them.
Even Max Kellerman pulled out an Old Ring Magazine article from 1999 when Floyd had called out the then Unbeaten Shane Mosley who was at the time IBF 135 Champion,while Floyd was WBC 130 Champion.
Floyd was willing to MOVE up in weight to make the fight but It was Mosley who turned him down,Vacated his 135 title and jumped to 147 coz he wanted Oscar Delahoya.So you can't blame Floyd for that.
Then back in 2005 when Floyd stepped up to 140,Top Rank gave him Henry Brussels to Gauge a potential fight against Miguel Cotto who was Unbeaten 140 WBO Champion.
Now take note that Brussels who was PuetoRican,trained by Evangelista Cotto was anhilated by Floyd that Top Rank debunked the Showdown against Cotto at that time as they did not fancy his chances.
Then after Brussels ,Floyd faced Gatti and we all know what happened on that night.Both Ricky Hatton and Cotto were in attendence with their Alphabetical belts and none of them wanted a Unification fight against Floyd.
Even Arum was quoted saying that Cotto was not ready,so Floyd moved up in weight since the other 2 unbeaten Champions in his Class refused to fight him.
Yet naysayers always find a way to Blame Floyd.............JEEEZ!
