He moved up in weight class from 140 to 147.....Power didnt carry up. He hasnt knocked anyone out since he moved up to 147.

You think the 140lb version of Bradley beats the 140lb version of Floyd? No chance.

Both are different fighters now so match them on how they fight now if being realistic. Bradley is an excellent boxer and i love watching him, his severe lack of power will always be his downfall at the elite level. Big punchers dont trouble Floyd so Bradley wouldnt either.

Mosley is a better overall fighter than bradley and he won 1 round against Floyd. The only fighter beating Floyd is a much bigger and stronger man e.g a middleweight with a lot of pop. Maybe Golovkin, maybe not.

Neither of them hit very hard which is my point. A fighter of similar size to Floyd needs that KO power as they will have a small connection % over Floyd so they need to make the big shot count if it lands.

If Bradley were to land a clean shot on Floyds chin it wouldnt crack it, probably wouldnt even ruffle his goatee whiskers!! His output would be greatly reduced, he would land his fair share of half decent shots but not enough to get his attention.

Its tough to say the type of fighter that beats Floyd as we have never seen him struggle. The last Maidana fight was close (7-5 type fight) but i think Floyd had an off night, he deserves 1 in 20 years as every sportsman does. Castillio and Oscar were close too but he has never really had to face adversity in the ring.

everyone said he would never fight Shane, he did and made it look easy. Then they said he wouldnt go near Alvarez, same thing. They said he struggled with pressure but the unbeaten Hatton got KO'd, shutout the pure boxer in JMM and beat Cotto the man everyone said he avoided (cotto denied he chased the fight but people ignore this).

Floyd is an asshole so its easy to hate on him but he is a great fighter. His punch output better improve in his next fight if he wants to keep selling PPV's.

Mayweather beats Bradley Unaminous Decision.
IDK how people are saying Manny is faster than Mayweather. Manny looks to be a little faster than JMM though I think JMMs timing closes the gap. When Mayweather fought JMM it looked as though JMM was standing still the whole fight.

I agree Braldey loses to Mayweather for me the only person who had and has a chance of beating mayweather would be Manny even then i would favor Mayweather but Manny would of been his toughest opponent ever.
