Well Pernell is, indeed, a >100 punches per round "offensive monster" at lightweight.

I think that is a "tall tail" but Pernell would take PBF to college and show him how to "pop shot" an opponent and make him miss without "running" and pernell's hands were faster overall!

Here are things to take into consideration:

Pernell threw more punches, WAY more punches at that. He was often the aggressor in his fights in his prime(which a lot of fools who havne't seen him fight will disagree with me on). Floyd hasn't been any kind of aggressor since 130(and maybe the Gatti fight). At 135 and 140 Floyd was more explosive, but not quicker or slicker, it depends on your definition of quick.

Pernell had a different style of defense but better. This is how the fight goes down IMO: Whitaker throws more punches by far while being the aggressor, PBF tries to do his move and pot shot thing, but against Pernell he finds it harder to land those single shots that he normally lands, all the while Pernell's jab is giving Pea a lot of trouble and Pea is throwing more punches and being the aggressor. This will look good to the judges. Pea wins by decision pretty handily. Floyd doesn't have what it takes to throw combinations on Pea without loooking foolish, considering Floyd was never much of a combo puncher past 130.
I concur totally! blocky remember what Judah did to mayweather the first four rounds? with Pernell it would be like that for 12!!!! bow down fool, mayweather has yet to fight a 1/3 of the great fight's whitaker has been in! Whitaker fought the best not the "use to be ok,fighters and one or two use to be best fighters"

Pea may have cause to dispute his loss against De La Hoya but the fact is, it was a very close fight - De La Hoya has never had the defensive ability nor offensive style of a Floyd Mayweather

Lets say this fight takes place at 140 - Floyd still had decent power, speed that would make Eyewitnesses described a Jeep Cherokee being driven at speed towards the main doors of Glasgow airport's terminal building with flames coming out from underneath shortly after 1500 BSTand a defensive pattern which would kill Pernell

Stop orgasmining over the past, Pernell gets ****ed.
One thing to say about you.........IDIOT.

Regarding your opinion that Whitaker had a very close fight with De La Hoya, and your correct, but he was past his prime when they fought in 1997. He was still a damn good fighter during the mid 90's, but he clearly never had the same handspeed and refelxes as he did as a lightweight, or even a light-welterweight 5 years before the De La Hoya fight.

A 33 year old Whitaker showed better defense against a 24 year old De La Hoya than a 30 year old Mayweather did against a 34 year old De La Hoya.

Are you an idiot. Look up the punch stats. Pernell regularly threw 100+ a round, 1000+ a fight. Its a stat you can look up?

Are you serious?

Oh Blocky Blocky Blocky...why do I always have to set you straight.

Whitaker was one of the fastest fighters in history....faster than Floyd. Yet another time you prove that you NEVER saw a prime Whitaker.

Now as for the DLH fight, most consider (myself included) that Sweet Pea won a close, but CLEAR UD. He was the busier fighter, he was the better defender, he landed the cleaner punches (even dropped Oscar) and kept the fight at the pace he wanted.

But, through all of that you must remember....THAT WAS NOT A PRIME SWEET PEA!!!!

The ONLY advantage Floyd (who is one of my favorite fighters....so this is NOT a biased opinion) would have is power. Thats it.

He wasnt the smarter fighter.
He wasnt the faster fighter.
He wasnt the better defender (Pea is generally considered the best EVER, Floyd isnt even the best of this generation).
He wasnt more accurate.
He DEFINATELY didnt have a better workrate.
He doesnt have the better PROVEN chin.
He has more experience.
He has more championship experience.

Its just a mismatch. Tho, with Floyd's unbelievable talent, it would still be a close fight. BUT, Sweet Pea takes it UD.

This is by far the most likely out come.

Great analysis.
