Default Would JMM do better against Floyd in 2013 vs. 2009??

To start, I am neither a Pac, JMM, or Floyd fan. I respect all 3 as great fighters though.

Here is what I cannot wrap my brain around. JMM was shutout and dominated in 2009 vs Floyd at 143. It was his first time at the weight and he looked small and soft. Against Pac in 2011 & 2012, he looks completely different at the weight.

Would he give Floyd a run for his money now? Did he grow into the weight in his late 30's?

what are you then? MMA fan? he'd probably win a couple of rounds but outcome would still be the same.

I think hed do better but the style match up is just about the most horrible you can think of for him.

Yes, because Floyd is shot at this point

Floyd wins again with relative ease, and JMM could go down multiple times.

No, infact I see Floyd beating him much easier as he would be completley focused on smashing the guy that KOed Pacquiao, which I see him doing.

Floyd beats him just as easily...I love JMM, but he has little to no chance against PBF.

He couldn't do much worse, so yes, he would do better.

Maybe pick up a few rounds depending on how Mayweather decided to fight him.

Mayweather is far superior to Marquez and I don't see anything changing that.

Style nightmare match up between 2 counter punchers, It's all up to Floyd! He can breeze to a shut out yawn or he can go on the front foot & attempt to demolish JMM & he would. But saying that, if that sort of punch hit Floyd then that would be lights out, but Floyd's no mug, totally risk averse, he'd just slower batter this pumped up slower JMM until Nacho throws in the towel around 8.

Jmm will get 2-3 rounds in the rematch. Floyd has shown down a lot and doesn't really like using his legs now but Floyd is still to quick for JMM.
