George Gigney lists the 10 best wins of Floyd Mayweather’s career
1. PTS 12 MANNY PACQUIAO (2015) It may have been disappointing and years too late, but Mayweather proved himself the best of his generation when he dominated Pacquiao.
2. PTS 12 OSCAR DE LA HOYA (2007) The last time Mayweather was the ‘B’ side of a fight. After a slow start, Mayweather outmanoeuvred De La Hoya to become a legitimate box office attraction.
3. RSF 10 DIEGO CORRALES (2001) Seen by most as Mayweather’s best ever performance. Floyd was breathtaking when he dismantled a very dangerous opponent in Corrales.
4. PTS 12 CANELO ALVAREZ (2013) Giving away numerous physical advantages, Mayweather schooled the Mexican star. The better Alvarez becomes, the better Mayweather’s win over him seems.
5. PTS 12 MIGUEL COTTO (2012) In one of his toughest fights, Mayweather nullified an excellent Cotto to add another future Hall of Famer to his list of victims.
6. PTS 12 JOSE LUIS CASTILLO II (2002) There are many who feel Castillo deserved the decision in his first fight with Mayweather, so Floyd’s clear victory in their immediate rematch is an important part of his legacy.
7. RSF 10 RICKY HATTON (2007) Hatton brought legions of fans to Las Vegas, but a classy Mayweather wrecked him in 10 rounds.
8. RTD 8 GENARO HERNANDEZ (1998) In a star-making performance, Mayweather won his first world title by dominating WBC super-feather king Hernandez.
9. PTS 12 JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ (2009) Returning after 21 months out of the ring, Mayweather dropped and outpointed Marquez who, admittedly, was significantly smaller.
10. PTS 12 ZAB JUDAH (2006) After a rocky start, Mayweather gained full control of the fight and defeated top southpaw Judah.
