Let's be real: Floyd Mayweather soundly beating a smaller, lighter, and slower Juan Manuel Marquez is hardly a big deal. There is an axiom is boxing that says, with rare exception, all things being equal a good big man will always defeat a good small man. And this undoubtedly played out in the Mayweather-Marquez bout. I firmly believe that Mayweather took this fight because the rewards were high (I heard he took home about $10 million) while the risks were relatively low. If Floyd is really serious about proving himself as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, he will accept Sugar Shane Moseley's challenge. I won't hold my breath.
