How good is it, really? Did he cherrypick, or was he just that much better than everyone else he fought?

Its very good with a few missing names and times and with some cherrypicking involved but overall its very good.
Man was a boxing savant.

Other than not fighting Pacman when he was a couple of years younger, who else could he have really fought?

Tim Bradley?

Australia
Casamayor
Freitas
Tszyu
Margarito
Mayweather also called out Tszyu in 2005 in the same interview he called out Mosley.

Probably didn’t get made because Mayweather arrived at light welterweight to late. Tszyu was only fighting once a year since 2001 and was beaten up, stopped and retired by Ricky Hatton a few weeks before Floyd picked up a light welterweight title.

Timing was just off on that one I’d say

Yeah,timing was off.
Still I think those names are key misses on his record.

At some point, all champions cherry- pick. Some guys fall through the cracks. Floyd's resume is very strong. He's taken the scalps of many champions. The cherry-picking comes with status. SRL was the biggest cherry-picker, but no one questions his resume.

Margarito was tailor made for Floyd.

A Floyd vs. a younger Shane would have been great to have but as others have said, the timing was wrong.
Styles make fights and Margarito would have pursued Floyd relentlessly from the opening bell. Would Margarito have been able to stun Floyd and then capitalize? We will never know but it would have made for an interesting fight. Perhaps a lot more interesting than some of the fights Floyd did have.

I think Margarito would have gotten the hell beat out of him. He was so slow, and too easy to hit. And his lack of defense would have doomed him.

He may well have got a systematic beating over many rounds but it's hardly likely Floyd would have just banged him out of there. More likely Margarito would have had a few moments along the way.

It would have been similar to Baldomir fight.

I don't think Floyd knocks him out, but I think Tony takes a bad beating over 12. The only way Antonio has any moments is if he has those special hand wraps.

In fairness to him he nearly always fought fighters who were coming in off high profile wins or career best performances.
Not that it has any link to the topic but johnnytightlips just gives me sooo many gay vibes.
