I'm not necessarily picking Floyd by knockout, but I see him landing enough solid, hard counters to not only get Manny's respect, but perhaps hurt him, perhaps knock him down.
My understanding is Pac's early career stoppages were the result of damage to the body (which was still young and spindly at the time).
When we've seen him hurt by headshots (would you be referring to the two JMM fights?) it's been a brief moment of stun from which he recovers with disturbing quickness. There's also the somewhat controversial consideration of weight gain improving one's resistance. I'll take this as a segue opportunity to plug this thread and invite you to weigh in on the subject: http://www.eastsideboxing.com/forum/...d.php?t=182602
