Default Floyd vs. Fab 4

Who does he do the best against? He would probably lose to all of them but I can see him giving Duran some problems before losing in a spectacular KO.

Hearns blasts him silly and gets him out early ... Leonard messes him up bad ... and Hagler is too much

He would probably duck them all anyway

He could beat the inconsistent Duran of 154 and up. That's about it though.

He'd lose to all of 'em but yeah, he could beat Duran at his worst at 154.

This and this, I don't see him having a snowball's chance in hell against any of the others, Hearns KO or fairly easy UD, Hagler - destruction, and SRL another one sided UD.

true but joppy could beat a shit version of duran

i like floyd, more than most on the classic i would guess, but there's not really a scenario where he beats an peak, near peak, or slightly faded version of any of them. assuming of course duran doesn't show up like shit

same would go for the 5th beatle to, benitez

Floyd vs Benitez would be pretty interesting. Probably more posturing than punching, so not likely to be a great fight at all, but it'd be interesting to see how each would go about dealing with the other. I don't think Benitez lost as much as he stepped up in weight, so I'd lean towards him at 147 and definitely at 154.

Duran and Leonard fights are at 147. Hearns can be at 147 or 154. Hagler is at 160.
Mayweather beats Duran at 147. This includes Montreal Duran. I don't see him beating Leonard, Hearns or Hagler.

Floyd take away Hearns jab.

If Benitez can make Tommy miss with the right hand, why can't Floyd (who's better, much better) do it?

I don't think Monzon would've had Duran hanging around half as long, much less the distance.

Duran's one of the greatest boxers ever? Well, so is Jose Napoles. Who was at his best at a higher natural weight than Duran. And closer to his prime. That didnt matter to Monzon. He disposed of him just as he was supposed to.

Rating post-Greb Middleweights is interesting. Robinson's got a thoroughly thick resume of middleweights going back to well before he even got a shot at the title and was beating them while weighing around the welter limit and some great wins while way past his best. Monzon has one of the greatest title reigns in history, at any weight, and was more dominant there. Hagler's behind both easily, for me.
