Default Prime DLH vs PBF

After re-watching DLH vs PBF for the third time (Scored it 8-4 to PBF when I watched it first, now im leaning more towards 7-5) i'm just wondering that if Oscar's that much past his best, yet still made it a close fight - What a prime Oscar would have done.

Watching over past great Oscar performances such as vs Vargas, i'm more and more convinced that a Prime Oscar would have beaten PBF.

First 6 and 1 in later rounds though he tired greatly letting Floyd back, would have no arguments with a point either way though.
What suprised me the most was not just how past it Oscar was, but how even his punches had slowed down and lost power.

Oscar takes it at 147. And probably 140.

130, which is more PBF's prime weight, Mayweather edges it.

Depends what weight class. I would favor Oscar at 147, but at 140 and 135, it's 50/50. At 130, Floyd's best weight, I would favor him.

so mayweather beats arugello ... at 130?

floyd did **** at 140 .. he didnt beat nobody ..

at 130-135 you are right.. but he didnt engage on the terms that oscar engaged.. but thats right .. all the stars oscar beat at 130-135 were just old and shot right?

Oscar in his prime would torch Floyd. Remember when Oscar use to have that bounce. You're best to get out of the way once Oscar start bouncing towand you .

The lower weight classes tend to favor Mayweather, and the higher weight classes favor Oscar.

Oscar's a bigger guy than Floyd.

Fighters like PBF would always give Oscar problems prime or not. See the Sweet Pea fight for reference.

How is Oscar that much past his best? What shows this? NOTHING!

PBF in his prime is at a lower weight and is a MUCH better fighter.
