You put Floyd along with Pep, Camacho, and Whitaker then you know Floyd would be the boss. Those ATGs lack the size or power to prevent Floyd from outboxing their ears off.
agreed at the lower weights but the thread is about where these guys fought in the 80's and thats at 147 and up.

hard to argue with a guy with 52000 in vcash.

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?

these guys have the correct answers...

He's got the talent to hang with all 4 of these guys, but he doesn't have the balls to face them.

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

I agree with Fry.

Roberto Duran UD Sugar Ray Leonard 20th June 1980.

The first Fab 4 superfight and it was the fight where he was at his "most prime" of all his superfights. He was also the only one to beat Leonard out of the group.

He did get taken the distance by a fat shit former lightweight and lost his title to a natural welter.

You Floyd haters dont know shit about boxing. If Floyd were around when those 4 were fighting Floyd racks up one of the most impressive win streaks ever, at junior welterweight.

Size obviously puts Floyd at a big disadvantage but I see him dealing with Haglers aggression by dancing and slipping for the first half of the fight then picking him off well in later rounds if Hagler slows don't get me wrong Hagler could easily KO him but I see it going the distance with a close decision win for Mayweather.

How do you see it?

When has Floyd 'danced and slipped' as a WW, or even JrMW? Floyd is NOT the slippery mover many think he is, and he certainly wouldn't be abled to slip and dance for 12 rounds with a strong, aggressive 160 and win rounds in the process. Hagler fought 15 rounders, he wouldn't 'slow' at all vs. Mayweather. Hagler either stops him, or wins a clear and wide decision. Look at Floyd's 2 fights at 154,m close win over DLH (part time fighter), and a close win over Cotto. Nothing Floyd has done suggests he can dance w/ Hagler.
