In this era of boxing Floyd 'Money' Mayweather is the truth, simply just amazing with his defense and offensive skills, he possesses in the ring. One thing the expert doesn't understand about Mayweather and it's that he has a gift that can't be taught. His instincts are beyond sharp and is the best, maybe in boxing history. Finding a fighter that can deal with Mayweather's gift and counter act, his abilities, you need an X-factor, someone to add a different look than what he's been use to witnessing, and with four fights left in his career, he may never get to see that challenge.
Here is my list to help promoters find the right fights to challenge the greatest fighter of our era. They might not have his skills but they have something special them, to make it a battle. In no real order but let's start with...
Sergio Martinez, not only is Martinez fast he can offset Mayweather timing with head movement and he has a size advantage.
Kell Brook, the UK powerhouse, with a slick style that can give Mayweather a nightmare of a time trying to find him and what power at welterweight does he has, there is something special about this kid, no wonder why Amir Khan ducked him.
Marcos Maidana, a very awkward fighter, with power in both hands very hard to beat because once he's hurt he become even more dangerous. Now he has constant training he is a different fighter than before. Just look at the adrien Broner fight, a rough night for Mayweather around the board.
Erislandy Lara, A slick Cuban boxer, who can switch his style to a more aggressive pro style, if he needed to, very hard to hit, may cause Mayweather to get upset and rush in trying to make a fight, Lara will not care if the fight is boring. he can lure you to sleep and strike.
Timothy Bradley, fierce and never taking a step back, doesn't quite have the skills but he makes up with heart. A difficult out for any fighter. Tim also changes styles over and over again so you never know which one is going to show up.
