Default Re: Could Floyd Mayweather beat a prime Meldrick Taylor?

Prime for prime, this would have been an excellent boxing contest. Like ChrisPontius, I think Floyd would win by UD over 12 rounds after losing perhaps the first four or five. Floyd's got boxing smarts that he doesn't get credit for and although Taylor has faster hands, Floyd has a bit more of an advantage sizewise, likely controlling the action from the middle rounds onward. He doesn't run away with this fight in dominating fashion, but I'd say he wins by at least 3 points minimum, 7-5 or 7-4-1, by round.

Eddie Futch once called Mayweather the greatest prospect he's seen since Sugar Ray Robinson, and coming from Futch, I'd say that's pretty significant.
