    Heck, replace all those Floyd opponents you mentioned with

    1.Hernandez
    2.Augustus
    3.Corley
    4.Mitchell

    And just maybe, Crawford’s current resume is better

    Floyd by a mile. At this rate, Crawford will never come close to doing what Floyd did.

    All of Floyd's best work came after DLH.
    Corrales, Castillo and Gatti were very hittable.
    Zab was the Adrien Broner of his era. He was a hip hop head's idea of a p4p boxer.

    I am not the biggest Corrales fan in the world

    but Castillo and Judah are far better than any of those ones on Crawford's resume

    Floyd doesn’t get enough credit for the Corrales win, it was a long time ago though but it was a big deal back then, Corrales was taking peoples heads off and speaking of resumes, Corrales built himself a good one even better than Floyd’s at the time, he had wins over Juuko, Gainer, Manfredy and Robert Garcia, all stoppages, and Floyd outclassed Chico, what makes Floyd’s resume even better than Bud’s is not only were his best wins against world champs, is that many of his foes still went on to win multiple world titles after losing to Floyd, which means they werent some one hit wonders or held titles at the right time, Indongo, Postol, Horn, Gamboa have done nothing significant since losing to TC, which back to my point, Indongo, Horn and Postol were just around at the right time to win world titles, they were never special to begin with.

    Corrales, Castillo and Gatti are all either HoFers or future HoFers (Gatti got in for reasons other than his quality as a fighter, but Corrales and Castillo are legitimate HoFers). Manfredy wouldn't be far off the best win on Crawford's resume.

    Horn was injured, he'll win a rematch.


    Floyd by a mile.

    Although Crawford gets props for dealing with the unique 'slickness' Horn posed, its Mayweather every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    Gatti & Judah are about the quality of the best fighters Crawford has been fighting, IMO.

    When he gets his equivalent of Corrales and Castillo wins then he can possibly contest Floyd

    Obviously Floyd, even at that point. It's also worth noting that Crawford is already 32 years old, and I think Floyd was only 30.

    Crawford has some really solid opponents out there though, so he could catch up a bit if he gets really, really busy. Spence, Thurman, Garcia, Canelo, Porter. I'd even like to see him fight some of the 154 guys like Erislandy Lara and Jarret Hurd, to see where he stands in that division.

    Crawford could get some big wins, but his window is closing. Being in his thirties now, he may be getting ripe for the picking.
