Floyd is not a threat to any top ATG at welterweight. This is not his weight division. This is where he chose to set up shop and make money.

Robinson on points. I see no reason to predict Floyd being knocked out. His defence is great and his chin is solid to boot.

I'd say Robinson in a 10-5 type decision.

SRR had height,reach BIG power, skill level, ring generalship, and BIG experience all going for him. While PBF, wasn`t even at 147 long enough nor was it where he did his best body of work at. SRR, hurts him and stops him. PBF cherry pib=cs, Robinson truly fought em all ! PBF would be so busy trying to run, duck, smother and hide, that he wouldn`t see the big shot that will get him...

I always respect your posts... But how will short, defensive minded PBF be able to win a round against an aggressive SRR ? Robbie would take it to him and he is a busy fighter, so I don`t see PBF, rolling and smothering shots, and be able to fire back and land enough ...

Ray Robinson at a much higher level, Ray by KO and quicker than we would think...Ray had the guns, the speed and would be aggressive in dispatching Floyd Jr. SRR KO 1-5

Robinson is as close to unbeatable as any fighter ever has been, but he's lost rounds to lesser fighters. Seeing Floyd win a handful of rounds really isn't that difficult for me to imagine.
