I think his power is very underrated, and he hits a hell of a lot harder than Barney Ross(although different styles) At Welter I think Im gonna take Floyd here at the Lower weights I think they are pretty evenly matched.
On my ATG list though Floyd has got to beat Pac and Mosley to even be talked about with "Hammerin Hank".
Mayweather is not a puncher. Period.
He threw everything in his arsenal at Gatti and couldn't even knock him down except with a cheap shot, beat N'Dou with right hand after right hand after right hand until N'Dou just didn't wanna continue, and was bouncing left right hook combinations off Marquez's head only to leave him a little scuffed up.
Mayweather certainly doesn't have the power to knock Armstrong out, nor the style to implement it.
