Default If Floyd Mayweather Jr fought in the 80's, he'd be one of the FAB. It'd be the Fab 5

Floyd Mayweather Jr
Sugar Ray Leonard
Roberto Duran
Thomas Hearns
Marvin Hagler

I think it'd be great matches all over with Floyd a good chance. Just my 2 cents.

There wouldn't be a Hagler/Floyd fight but the rest would be good fights with Floyd having good chances of winning.

Thoughts?

It's an opinion, he definitely has the skills and the game to be one of the FAB. Just cuz you don't believe it doesnt mean squat.

Nah I think he can beat Leonard/Duran, Hearns would be troublesome but you never know.

he is to small for all except Duran and if Cotto and Castillo gave him hell Duran would have beat the shot out of him as well

Fab 4 was always Benitez, Hearns, Duran and SRL. Hagler was more on the outside being a middleweight

Pryor would arse-**** him.

And Hagler... Well, Floyd would duck him like the plague.

Do you honestly think Floyd would fight any of these guys?

Duran (5'7", 66" reach, started at LW) - Floyd might fight him due to size
Leonard (5'10", 74" reach, legit WW) - doubt that Floyd fights him
Hagler (5'9", 75" reach, career MW) - Floyd wouldn't go near him
Hearns (6'1", 78" reach, huge WW) - Floyd avoids him until he's lost a few

Based on what we've seen of Floyd over his entire career, I think he'd probably only face 2 of the Fab 4. He's got the talent to hang with all 4 of these guys, but he doesn't have the balls to face them.
