His best fight was against Gatti, which I hated to watch. He brutally picked him apart. Much being Gatti's fault, as he always left himself opened too much.
Thats part of Floyd's style though, making people tired by being defensive. If you keep punching and either not hitting anything or his arms the whole time its gonna get you tired. Floyd has 24 knockouts, so he can bring the fight, he is just smart and lets the other guy get tired first.
