Battle of the fast hands and suspect chins. I like Floyd in this one but a Dokes one round blowout would be no surprise.

Patterson, by mid-round stoppage. He's simply the better fighter.

Prime for prime, a coke-free Dokes is all wrong for Floyd. Too big, too fast, and too damn good a body puncher. Floyd is the faster guy, but Dokes hand speed and combos would get to him. Dokes peaked in 1981-82. Dokes also had a super solid chin.
