The illustrious boxing writers over at ESPN created quite the stir earlier this month when they provided their takes on a mythical matchup between this generation’s best welterweight, Floyd Mayweather, and the consensus choice for any generation’s best welterweight, “Sugar” Ray Robinson.
Of the seven writers, six chose Robinson. The lone dissenter, Michael Woods, called the fight a draw.
It’s an interesting debate, but how about if we expand it to 10 of the all-time great welterweights instead of just one of them? How would Mayweather do fighting these stalwarts from the past (presented chronologically)?
