I think so too. Mayweather was JMM's first fight above 140. His body didn't have time to adapt to the weight, and his training was a shambles. His body was probably in the worst shape it's ever been for a fight. He looked bloated and fat, and it showed in the ring. He had no speed, and his reflexes were poor. Despite having grown into the weight, and finally taken his training regime into the 21st century, I don't think he could beat Mayweather, but he definitely has the talent to get within a few rounds if he displayed more patience, let Mayweather attack, instead of aggressively coming forward himself and being countered to death.
