Default Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Ray Robinson

Flea, I don't think Mayweather wins here, but I do think that the holes in Robinson's defence allow Mayweather (let's make no mistake, Mayweather would stink the place out.) to steal some rounds on clean punching.

I don't disagree that Robinson wins, and I can even see the knockout, but in the early rounds? That's disrespectful to Mayweather, who is great in his own right, and not really a natrual Welterweight. I think his mind keeps him in this fight.
I don't think he warrants much more respect than that in this kinda' matchup.

That wasn't my prediction of course. I say 5 or 6 rounds.
