Default Bradley has no chance against Mayweather

Bradley is a high volume fighter with a brawler style and no power.
In last night's fight he was so wild winging wide punches with many of them missing.
When Bradley wings these wild punches he is terribly off balance and open for counters but Pac never seemed to be able to capitalise.

I have to question Bradley's mind during fight time. He seems to have a erratic and weak mind, while Mayweather is always composed and focused.

Bradley wants to be a brawler, but lacks power and technique to actuall be one.

Mayweather would sit back and pot shot Bradley all night, and as the fight progressed Bradley would become more and more frustrated and his punches would get wilder and wider.

Mayweather to easy UD

Styles make fights and Bradley is a terrible style for Mayweather. Mayweather is going to beat him easily and Bradley lacks serious power to make any difference or adapt.

Bradley would do better than Manny Pacquiao, against Floyd.

Nobody between 140-154lbs would beat Floyd.

I agree. Bradley lacks true confidence. Swinging wild like a crazy man. Looking gassed. Terrible gameplan

I agree, that Bradley would do better than Pac against Mayweather. He might even get lucky with one or two of those wild punches landing.
I think that Bradley winding up on his punches hoping to get leverage and power actually ends up with his punches losing power.

Mayweather beats them both in ridiculously easy fashion.

Neither Pacquiao or Bradley would have no chance against Mayweather.

I always said that Bradley doesn't matchup well against FLoyd.

I've dissected their styles for a few years since I was under the impression that they'd eventually have a fight down the road.

There's absolutely no advantage that Bradley has in the ring against FLoyd. He's the smaller man, shorter reach, he doesn't have the power that Floyd has, he's not as accurate with his combinations or counterpunches, his handspeed and footwork isn't better/quicker, FLoyd's defense is exponentially more sharp than Timothy's. And to top it off, FLoyd would be the ring general in that fight, someone with MUCH more experience than Bradley.

They're both universally recognized top 10 P4P fighters but I seriously can't think of 1 advantage, just 1, that Bradley would have against Floyd. If he tried to pressure FLoyd in the same manner he did with Pacman last night, I could see him getting KO'd by a counter he doesn't see coming.

Smart money would be a wide UD for FLoyd though, somewhere around 9-3. I think FLoyd would have a few rounds where he just cruised through them, allowing bradley's high volume to maybe steal a few rounds in their fight.

Canelo or drainedelo wasnt healthy when he fought Duckweather's, in fact he should be undefeated. Dont get mad at me son i am just using Duckweather's logic.

I kind of agree with this, in the sense that Bradley fights a full 3 minutes per round. But when fighters are in the ring with FLoyd, the things they usually do very well ends up getting neutralized by FLoyd.

I could see Bradley's punch output take a serious dive in that fight. After he feels a couple sharp counters coming back at him when he throws some wild combos together, he'll probably be a little trigger shy to let his hands go.

If FLoyd can hurt naturally larger men than Bradley with his counterpunching and cause them to become trigger shy with their combos, there's no doubt in my mind that he'd do the same to Bradley.

I seriously think Bradley's punch output would decrease GREATLY in a matchup with FLoyd.

This isn't accurate at all. Many people were marveling about how great Canelo looked at the weigh in, and that he didn't look drained.

Listen, Canelo's handlers didnt have to tell FLoyd's team that they'd be willing to fight at 150 LBS to get a fight with him. All Floyd's team did was oblige on that request, and instead of bringing Canelo down to 150, they allowed him to come in at 152 lbs, just a lb lighter than what he weighed in in his previous fight with AUstin Trout.

If Canelo's team never made any stupid propositions like that, I'm sure FLoyd would've fought, and beaten the crap out of him, at the full 154 lb limit.

No version of Canelo can beat Mayweather. I think that's very clear at this point.

Perhaps.
I see neither of them having much chance.
Which has the better chance is debatable.
Bradley has the better chance of getting lucky and catching Mayweather with a wild, wide punch, but he has no power and the punch wouldn't hurt Mayweather.
Pac punches straighter and with better leverage, but he is easily hittable and as with JMM, walks straight into counters.
