Demarco can't box and he doesn't have one punch KO power (Linares wasn't dropped as far as I remember). Therefore, mayweather would be aggressive and not be over cautious.
Did anyone else think that HBO (merchant in particular) were hinting at broner to be more aggressive with his style when they were referring to the Floyd comparisons and that eventually "he/you will have to pick your own style".
To me, it was them saying; you have Floyds skills, so if we were to have him again, you're spot on at the moment, we'd prefer you to try knocking people out more often.
Their styles are identical, but Mayweather has a more developed game, and is the better boxer from the outside.
He is also more risk averse. He would use his legs and try to pick Demarco apart.
When Demarco gets desperate, Mayweather will land combinations and then get out.
I suppose he could stay in the pocket, similiar to what he did against N'Dou, but I can see him using his legs more, and perhaps stopping Demarco late, unless Demarco decided to back off to survive.
