Barney Ross is a top rate technician, no bullshit about primitive fighters can exist in this thread. Mayweather is a great boxer also. Great proposition here, I'm not quite sure. Ross is so proven though and fantastic footage exists of him. Mayweather is great at adapting, but he'd have his work cut out here like he's never known, from a stylistic point of view that is. Ross can lead with the short right, come under with multiples to body and head, he has great footwork.

It's difficult.

You mean aside from jabs, technique, and workrate.

Except Mayweather has better technique, Mayweather takes away workrate and can work at a faster pace than Ross than needs be, he doesnt have more stamina, and Floyd would own him in a jabbing contest if he didnt prefer using powershots

Like I said Mayweather does everything better

Sounds like an EXCUSE to me.

Mayweather could barely keep up with a plodder like JL Castillo for 12 rounds in one of the few times he was forced to step out and maintain a fast pace, while Ross could easily keep up a whirlwind pace through an entire 15 rounds as he showed in his fight with McLarnin.

No, Floyd would own him in a jabbing contest if someone surgically removed a great jabber's left arm and transplanted it in place of Floyd's own.

Your own post ACKNOWLEDGES that he doesn't do everything better, and just makes excuses for it.

Tough to say, really. Ross may have had the higher workrate, but Floyd was the more accurate puncher and possesses the faster hands of the two. To me, this plays out like Mayweather-DLH, in which PBF's clean right hands get the judges' attention more than Barney's jab and greater workrate. PBF by close, controversial SD.

Mqayweather never beat someone with the combination of skill and workrate like Mayweather while Ross beat fighters who proved themselves better than Mayweather and you still pick him. Strange pick.

1. Chavez threw 100punches a round, Hatto60, Castillo 60, Mayweather threw 40-60 a round against Hatton

2. There only seems to be round highlights of Ross-Mclarin. He folded like a stack of cards against the 1 true pressure fighter in Armstrong. So clearly he handles workrate/intensity worse than Floyd

3. Floyds jab is faster and mor accurate with more snap. When Floyd concentrates on the jab he dominates with it: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66BAoA5sBjM[/ame]

4. Mayweather does everything better than Ross
