Can't tell if trolling

Floyd is undeniably the most talented and skilled fighter of our era. No fighter comes even close to him. His footwork is damn near textbook and he has abilities that most people can't develop through two lifetimes of training (namely reflexes and during his younger years incomparable speed).

No clue wtf you're talking about MVC

He works as hard as any fighter in history when it comes to training. That - along with supreme natural and physical gifts - is a huge part of why he is undefeated and a massive success story in boxing.
While I do believe that Floyd is an above average athlete, he's not this freak athlete that some make him out to be. He's not as quick as Mosley or Judah were in their prime. A lot of his success is a result of his hard work.

It wouldn't make a lick of difference even if Floyd fought Mosley or DLH in their prime from 2000-2002. Floyd would still give them both a BOXING LESSON.

Mosley even with his many years of experience didn't know how to deal with Floyd when Floyd turned it up after those 2 big right hands. In the last 30 secs of R2, even after those 2 right hand bombs, Floyd WAS STILL tuning his ass up.

Sure Mosley was fast and packed power in his prime, but it wouldn't matter. Floyd's granite chin, ability to adapt would give Mosley fits

Same goes for DLH.

DLH fights half the fight flat footed and doesn't have stamina to last the whole 12, he can't deal with Floyd. (Stamina issue evident from the Trinidad, Mosley, Sturm fights)

Both would have beaten him at prime.

One nearly did it well past prime and the other rocked him when he was nearly 40. Ten years earlier, he would have finished the job.

He's one of if not the hardest worker in boxing, but don't fool yourself. He has a ton of natural talent.

Default Re: Tribute to one of the greatest boxing advisors of all time, Leonard Ellerbe.

Leonard is definitely someone who deserves a HOF spot. With his enthusiasm, contributions to the sport, he's definitely a good contender.

Brought us such great matches over the decade.
