Ten men who might beat Floyd Mayweather

Jack Hirsch picks out 10 fighters who could one day end Floyd Mayweather's unbeaten record

LET me make one thing perfectly clear, that in my view the Floyd Mayweather Jnr express will continue to roll unbeaten for a long time to come. 

However, no one is invincible.

If Mayweather, 36, were to slip up for any reason he could lose, but it would take an exceptional effort under extraordinary circumstances by the man in the opposite corner to pull it off. 

It might never happen, but if Mayweather 45-0 (26) were to eventually taste defeat it would probably be at the hands of one of the following 10 prospective opponents. 

In descending order of their chances we explore who might beat Mayweather, when, and how.

Who cares? You make it seem like beating Mayweather is a big deal. It IS a big deal, but not in the sense you're making it. One thing Mayweather proved is that boxing is a limited combat sport. He doesn't even beat up his opponents. He's not a fighter. He's a boxer. There was a time when a boxer was considered the toughest athlete who theoretically could beat up anyone in the street, but that reputation now belongs to MMA fighters. Mayweather's skills are perfect for pro boxing rules, and it's going to be very hard to beat him in a boxing match. But in a REAL fight? That's an entirely different story.

i have to agree with bob the building. Boxing is a sport and MMA is street fighting. Let's leave it at that. Jose Luis Castillo already proved to beat Mayweather you have to "UFC" him in the ring. Castillo beat him in their first fight and provided the blue print to beat him. Canelo Alvarez had the size but not the brains to pull the hat trick. I disagree with bob the building on one thing, comparing the two is not realistic. It's like constantly constantly comparing fencing to Japanese kendo. It does not compute.

Bob, comparing boxing and MMA is stupid. Mayweather isn't an MMA fighter, of course he would lose in an MMA match, just like if an MMA fighter tried to get in a boxing ring with Mayweather, Klitschko, Ward, or any top boxer, they would get schooled. Let's remember which sport makes the most money and has the most fans...Boxing!
