On another note how would he have done against Vernon Forrest in 07?
Correct, I see that Oscar beating Floyd.

As for Vernon, well, Forrest had more left in the tank in 2007 than Oscar did. Forrest, both in his prime and in 2007 even, would have been a bad matchup for Floyd.

1997-2000 Oscar vs. Forrest at Welterweight, I favor Oscar. Oscar 2002-2003 vs Forrest at 154 is closer, 50-50, perhaps slight edge to Forrest. Forrest looked more at home at 154 than he did at 147 to me.

I am not sold or will give any pity for Oscar's lost to FLoyd at age 33. THe guy had 20 pounds on FLoyd. Floyd didn't even fill out WW plus he fought him in a small ring so Floyd can't use his legs and forced him to fight a big man's fight. In a full size ring Oscar wont even get but 1 to 2 rounds. People never factor the advanatages that Oscar demanded.

Floyd was able to beat Ortiz who had 18lb overs him who was much younger at age 34 SO where was his pity?

And no Oscar at 147 was not outstanding. Oscar was never an outstanding boxer. He was 5'10 and fighting dudes at 130 on up too big for his division.

i would even favor a 130lb Floyd over Oscar 147lb. No catch weight needed. Woudn't matter. Oscar gets beat.

A very faded version of Oscar who was more than 5 years removed from his prime managed to get lose a close decision to Floyd and busted his face in the process like no other fighter had... A prime Oscar who fights him intelligently beats him convincingly.

Pretty much this right here, but imo would still be a very close fight. Oscar was past his prime and no one can deny that.
