Against the likes of Judah and Corley, he was visibly hurt, yet he maintained his composure, and went on to dominate both fights.

Finally against Mosley, rocked twice in the second round by a legitimate power puncher, Money May survived and went on to win every round

Floyd Mayweather is an iron chinned warrior

quality post chief with some good examples. I would agree that Mayweather has that inner toughness to win close fights, If Mayweathers in trouble he finds a way. He's like Ray Leonard in that respect, its not just the skills, theres the warrior inside in the tough moments, its that kind of thing that seperates the likes of Ali, Leonard, and Mayweather from the likes of Roy Jones.
