If Mayweather fights into his 40's i think each fight he would start getting hit abit more until eventually he gets stopped
I agree .

As great as he is defensively , i just dont see him being successful in his 40s like B Hop is . Floyd is Gifted , Yet Bernard is special .

Yes, but like Bhop he'll need to be fighting a certain type of fighter to be competative once the reflexes slow.

IMO Floyd loses if he fights on.

Both fighters barely get hit, not just because of reflexes, but their high skill level. Bhop is fighting in his 40s and shows no sign of damage.

No. I am positive he won't do it. He can't control the center of a ring like BHop can and his pulling back into the ropes would spell disaster as his reflexes fade. It's possible but I highly doubt it.

Floyd can still fight in his forties. Hell just bring up flyweights to fight him at jr.middleweight

He probably can, if his body handles it, but seriously doubt he will. The only way he will keep going regardless is if he loses his 0 and has nothing to watch out for anymore.
