Are you some kinda dumbass?

Leonard is all wrong for him.

He's rangier, faster, and he would put Floyd out when Floyd goes to the ropes.

He keep his range, aim shots at his bodies, wait for Floyd to try to get off, and hit him with a good shot that makes his eyes roll back, and then finish him off with a lightening combination.

You're making Floyd overrated.

He's too small for Leonard.

What part of Leonard do you think he could beat?

He would have to seriously slow Leonard down and take away his strengths. I just don't see Floyd being able to do that over a 12/15 round fight. I don't think he would get stopped but the way he fights at Welter, I just don't see him giving Leonard a lot of problems offensively.

Duran is the type of fighter he could beat.

When's the last time Floyd fought at Middleweight? Have a missed a fight here or something?

Either you're being biased which is blurring your sense in posts or you're just retarded. Either way, fail

Honestly he would have never been on their level..He would have probably been beaten by a lesser fighter because he would have been force to fight more frequent thus not getting an opportunity fore the fighters to age befor he stepped in the ring with any of them!

Could picture it now

Duran is juicing everybody knows whats up, im not fighting him till he takes the test
Hearns?? Errr im going on vacation my bodys beat
Hagler?? Marvin who, theres no money in that fight, he fights in a division full of bums... I'll fight him if he can make 150lbs
leonard.. people come to see the floyd mayweather experience, im the one writing the biggest cheques of their careers,, i want a 70-30 split
I could picture him and leonard timing both their retirements around each other tryin to both get one up on each other & it never happening, atleast SRL had the heart and put on all the fights in the end, sadly the same cant be said for floyd 'but im a rich coward' mayweather

This is why I comment on Duran. I think he is great, but I think he gets overrated because of excuses to explain losses where he could not deal with speed. Leonard (the only elite great he ever beat-yet then lost in the two rematches easily) showed that the blueprint to beat Duran was speed same as the blueprint to beat Hearns was pressure. That is being objective, since I love Tommy, but that was the blueprint Hagler showed to beat Hearns.
although duran did not bring his hands of stones up with him to the higher weights(154+) he still was successful to a certain extent.

he beat a prime barkley(who would beat anyone today at 154 and walk down mayweather) as well as fighting hagler extremely competitive for 15 rounds and ruining davey moore.

as for hagler/hearns that was not a blueprint.

that was hagler suffering a cut that he knew would eventually end the fight and he went for the ko.

emmanuel still believes that tommy was kod because he had his legs massaged immediately prior to the fight which weakened his legs.

let me guess, youre one of those canelo fans that has been following boxing for all of three years that thinks he knows eveything?

prime srl beats the wholly ****ing shit out of floyd"i lost 15 pounds in jail and was dehydrated" mayweather.

they have a thread here on esb where some clowns here were made to be a fool believeing mayweathers 15 pound bullshit.

some of you guys, youve never been in a fight or a gym before.

The OP is right and Floyd would have fought any of them who weren't under Arum. Keep it real.

The only fights Floyd could win would be against Duran at 147 or 154. Leonard and Hearns would decapitate him.

Mayweather-Benitez would be very very interesting though

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?

He has no balls, he won't step into the ring with any of them

Floyd is like James Toney, whether or not when (if) he had stepped up to Welter in the 80s I don't think he gets knocked out by anyone, it could be a case of him being to small and getting outpointed or outworked, but its straight up disrespect to his defensive skills to suggest he'd get 'decapitated' by all of them.
