130
Azumah Nelson- Mayweather by UD
Alexis Arguello- Mayweather by UD
Hector Camacho Sr.- Camacho by UD

135:
Pernell Whitaker- Whitaker by close decision
JCC- Chavez by close decision
Duran- Duran by clear decision or late stoppage

140:
Kostya Tszyu- Mayweather by close decision
Aaron Pryor- Pryor by late stoppage or clear decision. Floyd gives Pryor some trouble with his skills and movement but Pryor cuts him off and outworks him.

147:
Shane Mosley- I'll reserve judgement on this one until I see this fight later on, then judge on how it would've taken place if Mosley were a few years younger
Tommy Hearns- Hearns by mid or late rounds KO
Ray Leonard- Leonard by UD or late stoppage

154:

Floyd loses all the matches here. He really doesn't belong here, IMO.

Azumah Nelson - I actually think Floyd wins a close SD here.

Alexis Arguello - Arguello is world class but hes got medicore speed and Floyd could take advantage of it. Floyd UD.

135:
Pernell Whitaker - Pernell is better at everything then Floyd hes faster,better defense,higher worktate,better jab and hes a southpaw. Whitaker UD.

JCC - Castillo arguablly beat Mayweather and hes a poor mans JC Chavez. Chavez stops Floyd in 11 hes the perfect style.

Duran - Duran late stoppage hes so well rounded and can match anything Floyd does.

140:
Kostya Tszyu - Floyd UD KT fairly overatted fighter.
Aaron Pryor - Pryor late stoppage very strong physical man who would bully Mayweather.

147:
Shane Mosley - Mosley SD He matches Floyds speed and is a guy that can fight all 12 rounds. The judges would favor Mosleys more agressive style and harder punching.

Tommy Hearns - Hearns KO 7 incredibly talented we saw what he did to Leonard he dominated him he only lost because Leonard could hurt him. Mayweather cant. Hearns is alot taller and would jab and jab some more before lower the right hand to Floyds jaw.

Ray Leonard - Leonard by stoppage as well. He matches everything Floyd can do hes faster,he moves better,he jabs better,much bigger puncher. Floyd will win his rounds but Sugar Ray pulls off a wonderful stoppage late or a double left hook.

154:
Tito Trinidad - Trinidad would have a hard time landing any effective punches and would be baffled by Mayweathers counter punching. Floyd UD.

Terry Norris - Norris had some skills but I think Floyd is a class above him. Mayweather UD.

Mike McCallum - One of the best bodypunchers ever takes away Floyds legs and stops him late.

So I got Mayweather going 5-7 thats not to bad.

Yeah, Norris's weaknesses don't play into Mayweather's strengths. Well, unless Norris does something dumb and hits Mayweather behind the head or blatantly when he's down.

Mayweather isn't much of a puncher to expose Norris's leaky chin, which his lapses in defense and concentration play a part in.

Azumah Nelson - Mayweather by close Ud
Alexis Arguello - Mayweather UD

135:
Pernell Whitaker - Draw
JCC - Mayweather close SD
Duran - Duran SD

140:
Kostya Tszyu - Mayweather UD, PBF out speed KT and is defnsively savvy enough not to get caught by a KO blow.

Aaron Pryor - Mayweather UD, Mayweather jabs his way to a decision.

147:
Shane Mosley - Id pick PBF ti nick a decision now, but the mosley that beat De La Hoya beats Mayweather imo. The DLH that lose to mosley beats floyd aswel imo.
Tommy Hearns - Depends how tentative Floyd is,laying on the ropes wouldnt be good idea against tommy, he hit HARD! I think PBF could get a pts win though.

Ray Leonard - Leonard UD


154:
Tito Trinidad - Mayweather wide UD, easy pickings for floyd mayweather
Terry Norris - Mayweather UD
Mike McCallum - Hmmm McCallum on pts

No chance Floyd ever fights any of these guys until they're old and worn out, then he'll fight one of them, barely win, and cry and retire like a chump.

This should be fun
Mayweather outpoints Nelson & possibly outpoints arguello IF he can avoid the right hand for 12 rds.

Whitaker & chavez outpoint floyd & duran tkos him.

Mayweather possibly outpoints tszyu & pryor, both could go either way, points either way imo.

Mayweather & mosely sd either way on points, hearns & leonard ko floyd.

If talking primes, tito, mc callum & norris should tko floyd (dont forget dlh was on their sort of level & went 50/50 past his best with floyd)

A few of these were close but I had to pick quickly, Im off out, cheers.

Some spot on choices. I honesty think Duran and Chavez would be absolute hell for PBF, though I could see both of 'em outhussling him for the decision
