Boxing is sport in its rawest, most primitive form - two men, in a cage, trying to beat each into next Christmas, until one of them falls down and can't get up.

In the run up to Floyd Mayweather Jr's eagerly anticipated fight with Manny Pacquiao, lighting up the billboards of boxing websites, I wanted to find out how Mayweather Jr compares with the great boxing Welterweights of old, why he should embrace his talent, not his treasure and question what the future holds for the sport.

Mayweather v Pacquiao for all of the marbles would have been the perfect end to the career of probably the most gifted and extraordinarily talented fighter since the peak Roy Jones.
