Default Floyd Mayweather vs Arthur Abraham...

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] does the current LMW Floyd fare against Abraham at his prime weight of 160?

Lets be realistic now, thats too big of a weight difference . Even though Abraham is nowhere near that devastating puncher everyone makes him out to be , he would still put Floyd to sleep . No matter how slick you are , You are bound to get hit in a 12 rnd fight .

Right now, Floyd gets KOed. He doesn't have the legs anymore.

But Floyd from 2007 - 2009 wins a UD IMO.

Kofi Jantuah was a welterweight (and suffered a 1-punch KO loss down there) and Abraham failed to put him to sleep over 12 rounds. Didn't even drop him.

Mayweather isn't better than Jantuah?

Floyd doesn't get hit clean often and even when he did, he has shown a solid beard.

What weight does this fight take place?

I don't even know why i responded its a ridiculous thought.

160, Mayweather UD12.

Abraham can't make 160 anymore, though - and Mayweather isn't going all the way up to 168.

So, fantasy.

That fight was at 160 , at 168 Arthur will walk through Floyd , Pressure him and eventually knock him out .

Who the **** is talking about Mayweather vs. Abraham at 168???

If that is the premise of this topic, then forget it. It's ridiculous.

160, however...if we mean it as a time machine bout; Mayweather now (or any time during his light middle campaign) versus middleweight champion era Abraham...that's within reason. After all, people keep talking about Mayweather vs. Martinez even if nobody expects it to happen.

Sorry but I just cant see it , Even at middleweight Abraham is just too big and strong for Floyd . He would not be able to withstand Abrahams offense for 36 minutes . I just see Arthurs Size advantage/Brute strength breaking him down the minute he lands on floyd .. Floyd would be seriously overwhelmed and taken out .

Mayweather UD. Those wild clubbing swings aren't going to touch Mayweather.
