Do you happen to know floyd's prime was at FW-LW.

Prime whitaker,prime SRR,prime SRL,prime Hearns etc..were all under 30in their prime and natural WW's.

Floyd who is natural LW and way past his prime at 36.

Why don't you compare how past his prime SRL,whitaker,hearns,SRR would match against prime Roy jones jr. At 160?
So true.

It's such a shame floyd v pac never happened in 09, after floyd had just easily beat marquez and pac had just ko'd cotto.. this would of been such a big fight. arggg stil annoys me to this day lol
He was closer to his prime than Oscar. You can argue about when his absolute peak was, but in 2007, Floyd was in great shape.

He obviously had more power at the lower weights, but watching their 2007 fight, tells me that Oscar would have had a great shot at beating him when he was in his late 20's.

Regarding the Pac fight, it was a travesty that we didn't see it.
