Default What style is needed to beat floyd?

I always read people saying how floyd's style would be a problem for other fighters and that they therefore have no chance in beating him.
I would like to know what your opinion is about what style creates huge problems for floyd and is there a fighter that could pull it off?

Watch the first Castillo fight......Educated pressure, a decent jab, throw punches in bunches and a body attack......keep the fight out the center of the ring and eliminate Floyd's jab with your own and counter the straight right with a left hook

A slick southpaw with power. Something like a Judah with a much better chin and ways to deal with adversity followed by great stamina.

You would have to go back in time for your answer to that question. Castillo 1 is alright to use as a base but you have to remember Floyd was injured.

Pressure, Pressure, Pressure. A fighter must have a good chin with good power and skill. You have to bully your way into Mayweather with body shots. Make him feel your power so he can think about it twice before he throws.

Castillo already did it.

Too bad he will never receive credit for it. Tragedy for that guy's career.

this is why i've lost respect for margarito, because i always though that fight after cotto that he would give mayweather a real tough fight, because of his constant pressure, good body shots and the ability to wear fighters down, bt the more i think about it margarito likely used illegal hand wraps in that fight

Most people will tell you pressure pressure pressure. The thing is this, Mayweather can run all night. Even if you pressure hard, it'll still be extremely hard to win rounds against Mayweather with GOOD judges watching the fight. You'll get countered all night, and a lot of shots will be parried.

I think the best way to beat Mayweather is to make him fight completely off of his gameplan. His gameplay is usually is to set up you for a counter. That means backstep, keep turning, and catch you when you're not expecting. That's cause people think you need to pressure Mayweather to beat him. What you want to do is try doing that to Mayweather himself. If you're a southpaw, make Mayweather attack you, and pick intelligent times to unleash barrages, that's the way you can win on the score cards IMO. That way he's not doing his usual gameplan.
