Default Re: Barney Ross vs Floyd Mayweather/ Winner?

Mayweather. In close fights like this, where everything is basically equal- I'd pick the better athlete, as they tend to get a way with a lot more Defensively and offensively. I'd pick Floyd to out athlete Ross in a tough fight. If you know what I mean

Of course Ross makes it a fight, but I just feel floyd lands the more telling stuff.

Floyd has never faced a top class technician before (unless we count Marquez). Totally unknown territory for him.

it's be close either way.

hahaha i forgot the question and just followed the brawl

tough one for me to answer. the footage i've seen of ross is limited but his chin, technique and versitility are, to me, top rate. all 3, the latter two especially are damned important ot beating a fighter like mayweather. those, along with workrate, make ross extremely dangerous.

on the other hand, mayweather is pretty brilliant. there are a lot of knocks against him, but he's great at what he does. his defense may prevent ross from getting too much offense going and i think his counters will land.

My take...

Rounds 1-5: Mayweather takes an early lead, winning the final 3 rounds with accurate, sharp counters while Ross struggles slightly to find mayweathers timing. Ross tries in vain to control Mayweather, who slides out and lands the right. Mayweather is getting ****y.

Mayweather, 3-2

Rounds 6-10: Ross begins timing Mayweather with the jab and interrupting his advances. Floyd is forced into a defensive stance as Ross picks up points and begins avoiding more counters. Mayweather is still landing, and hard, but Ross rarely blinks and controls the tempo of the fight and lands more shots, often to the body. Mayweather attempts to walk Ross down towards the final 2 rounds of the stanza but is pushed back.

Ross 5-5

Rounds 11-15: Ross picks up the pace gradually and by the 12th, is trying to run over Mayweather, coming in hard with the double jab and throwing blistering combos. This creates opportunities for Floyd to counter, which he does and begins using movement to avoid Ross. Unfortunately, Floyd finds his feet aren't up to the task at 147 and he's consistently cornered by Ross. He's rarely hurt and never in danger of getting knocked out but Ross controls the rounds clearly and turns Floyd too defensive to score points.

Ross, 9-6

I know normaly it would seem more logical to pick the old school boxer over 15 and the contempary boxer over 12 but I think Mayweather who is a strong finisher would do better over 15 hear while Ross will have more likely have more chance of having a lead over 12 than he would over 15.
Either way it is going to be a close fight 12 or 15 rounds.
love this post

Ross' adaptability is more proven against a more diverse group of stylists than Floyd has been up against.

Ross takes a close, but clear decision over 15. Would be a great fight I'm sure but I'm pretty comfortable with saying Ross was the better fighter of the two and not at a stylistic disadvantage here.

Floyd would beat some great fighters, but not this one in my opinion.

Nice try though.



Oh, so now there's "rules" on who's "worthy of debate"??

Let's see these rules then.



And there you go: first you talk about how much "harder" it is, but then you turn around and claim there's no trouble/risk associated with a fighter doing it.

You're just throwing shit at the walls and seeing what sticks.



Which makes you a worthless *****.



No, I haven't. You're just making shit up (as usual) to avoid addressing a post that clearly schools your ass.


oh, those were the days.


Note though, that only pp is around these days. He outlasts them, that's what he does.
