Definitely Ray.He was head and shoulders above Floyd, and would spank him in the ring within 3 rounds.

There's no blueprint flea. How do you beat a guy that has no blueprint? That's why undefeated fighters never lose...

Robinson has been taking an absolute beating on here lately.

If Robinson had retired before he fought Lamotta the first time then I'd be happy to pick him.

Robinson by wide UD or late stoppage. Mayweather is the
Goods at 147, but Robinson is equal or greater in speed or
skills and had more power, and a better chin. Mayweather's
Welterweight resume pales in comparison to Robinson's record.

so to answer your question. robinson who is 5'11 with great reach and great power and speed combination would take floyd in 2 rounds.

You were doing so well.


Robinson would win a competitive fight. Mayweather's brain is being over looked here.

Only way he survives if is he stinks the joint out. Mayweather is nowhere near proven to say he can even be competitive with an operator of Robinson's calibre and style. Same goes for Floyd Against Hearns (not saying Tommy and Ray are alike) they're just horrible matchups for him.

Ray was made of iron as well. What would Floyd show him?

On paper you wouldn't expect Jimmy McLarnin to waste Young Corbett III inside a round, Nunn to catch Kalambay, Hearns to blast Duran. But here, stylistically I actually cannot fathom how Floyd wouldn't be taking shit loads of quick bombs. Ray would open his defence up.

I've always maintained that Mayweather matches up better with Robinson than he does with Leonard. I think the elder Ray would be more inclined to Box with Mayweather, where as Leonard would be more agressive. Just an inkling.

Flea, I don't think Mayweather wins here, but I do think that the holes in Robinson's defence allow Mayweather (let's make no mistake, Mayweather would stink the place out.) to steal some rounds on clean punching.

I don't disagree that Robinson wins, and I can even see the knockout, but in the early rounds? That's disrespectful to Mayweather, who is great in his own right, and not really a natrual Welterweight. I think his mind keeps him in this fight.
