How do you see it?
When has Floyd 'danced and slipped' as a WW, or even JrMW? Floyd is NOT the slippery mover many think he is, and he certainly wouldn't be abled to slip and dance for 12 rounds with a strong, aggressive 160 and win rounds in the process. Hagler fought 15 rounders, he wouldn't 'slow' at all vs. Mayweather. Hagler either stops him, or wins a clear and wide decision. Look at Floyd's 2 fights at 154,m close win over DLH (part time fighter), and a close win over Cotto. Nothing Floyd has done suggests he can dance w/ Hagler.
