I think Floyd would one beat Arguello by a wide margin. The speed difference is too big.

Junior is certainly not too big. I'm almost positive he could have made 130 same day, and 135 as well.
maybe @ age 18 , and even then it would have been 2 much 4 him 2 go full 10 rds @ that same day weighing in w8

I would have to look back, but at lightweight Floyd was coming in at 136 or 138, something very low. I assumed he was similarly sized at super feather...

To elaborate. Physically I'e always felt he looked lovely. Well proportioned, always in impeccable position, always looked strong, always a specimen.

I'm confident that if Napoles can do that well against his field at welterweight then Floyd could do if Napoles wasn't there. Cokes is the only one I'm a bit unsure of. And we'd see Floyd have tough fights in there too. I'd take him to beat Zombie Griffith as well.

He was a good size welter, yet not big or small at any weight he's been at. Make sense now?

In many era's he had been a 126-135lb guy anyway. No biggie in being 132 against lightweights that are at the bigger end of the division in those days.

Canzoneri looked fairly small against the lightweights and light welters he faced IMO. Floyd wouldn't.

He'd be fine, he's much better equipped to fight years before IMO. In fact, this is why he's beating weight cutting labourers.

It's the skill level that would also even up, something he doesn't have now. You see a lot of people saying 'he's on another level to his opponents'. The quality of the opposition, skillwise, is generally woeful IMO.

When the best opponents you have beaten are Genaro Hernandez, Diego Corrales, De La Hoya, Juan Manuel Marquez, Jesus Chavez, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto and past it Shane Mosley, I don't think you can be considered one of the most skilled fighters ever regardless of the aesthetic quality of your performance.

I disagree, perhaps in general but not in particular.

The Thin man was one of my favorite fighters back in the day but Money would rip him a new one.

I give Arguelllo 40% chance against a prime motivated Mayweather.

It's completely farfetched if you're using Corrales as a yardstick for Arguello.

I'm not using Corrales as a yardstick for Arguello. Yes Arguello is better than Corrales but I doubt he would dominate him in the same fashion that Mayweather did.
