Do you honestly think Floyd would fight any of these guys?

Duran (5'7", 66" reach, started at LW) - Floyd might fight him due to size
Leonard (5'10", 74" reach, legit WW) - doubt that Floyd fights him
Hagler (5'9", 75" reach, career MW) - Floyd wouldn't go near him
Hearns (6'1", 78" reach, huge WW) - Floyd avoids him until he's lost a few

Based on what we've seen of Floyd over his entire career, I think he'd probably only face 2 of the Fab 4. He's got the talent to hang with all 4 of these guys, but he doesn't have the ***** to face them.
