Floyd Mayweather hasn't had a truly close fight in over a decade and Andre Ward has never had one. So it might be a bit of an exaggeration to argue that there is a "nightmare" fight out there for either man.

Sugar Ray Robinson was the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time, but Jake LaMotta was consistently able to push him to his limit.

No fighter is invincible. Not even the all-time greats.
