Floyd outslicks the young Williams and wins on the cards, possibly knocking Williams down with a counter over the course of the way.

You cannot see Floyd winning a decision?

It's impossible to believe Floyd could land a solid left hook counter when Williams is pumping out 1200 punches in a fight? I don't.

I never said he'd knock him out, but I can see a counterpunch knockdown. Flash, if you will. Corrales was big and tall and got hit all night long.

Still bitter over Margarito losing (again), right?

It's simply amazing how the hate people have for Floyd clouds their judgement.

Williams would win 3 rounds max.

Floyd can't KO Williams and won't throw enough punches to win a decision

Paul Williams UD

talent alone isn't everything.....the whole floyds too talented arguements aren't enough to dismiss a guy who has so many physical and stylistic advantages.

certainly not. Floyd could use counter punching and movement to control the pace of the fight.

So you don't think Williams would land more punches? People who Williams is throwing twice as many punches than, have come close to outlanding Floyd. Maybe if you want to be pedantic Floyd would want to land the cleaner shots, but considering Williams throws 3 times as many punches, say Mayweather would land more is absurd.

My point was that williams could land on an opponent who has a longer reach than Mayweather fromt he outside. Thus, Williams would just stay away popping long range punches, meaning Floyd would throw even less. As a counter puncher who uses the Philly Shell, Mayweather requires people to come close to him, for him to land his effective punches.

Read up on the Philly Shell for more reasons about this

Serious question - Are you stupid? Do you not even see what point I was making there?

Oh OK, so the technical analysis we have so far is that Floyd "outslicks" Williams.

Great stuff.

PBF has met his match at the slap game Williams has more volume 100 slaps a round is 6/2 and long with stamina, I say he outslaps the slapper dont say Will is a better fighter or anything, only that in a slap fest of little commitment a PBF playing defense all night plays right into Williams' stock and trade. PBF for once will not be able to sit on a lead and run. Mark my words PBF will never fight Williams too big a risk not enough gain, and as the fans respect and proving he can clean out the best is not on his damn agenda the sorry cunt. But fighting little stubby Ricky Hatton is, while no mention of Mosely or Williams, how about a Winky? What bullshit and you idiots eat it up!!!!!

I wouldn't call it a lowering of his standard because williams gives anyone at 147 a good go. I would more say that williams inherits margo's position as biggest risk lowest reward fight for floyd.....so yes he will have to do some serious campaining to get pbf's attention.

Personally I think he posses the biggest risk to floyd....over and above all the fighters you mentioned.

I think by the time PW is in a position to get a fight with floyd he will be too old and want no part of him. too bad because i'd favour him over floyd right now.

He'll lose a comfortable UD to Floyd. Too much movement to get in and bang, too good a defense to catch him and hurt him, and too bad a defense to stay out of Floyd's counter-punching and pot-shotting. Also, as I said, he doesn't really use his height and reach to his advantage, and wouldn't be able to against Floyd anyway.
As you can see by my other posts I also feel that this could happen. But I disagree with the notion that he can't use his hieght. He can. And stylisticly I'm just going with the volume puncher gives the boxer a tough fight addage.

I think we just disagree with how hard it would be for him to impose his advantages on floyd. Personally, i saw the DLH fight and saw a guy that is beatable and is more interested in just doing enough to win a fight while not getting hurt then a guy that goes out there and imposes himself on the other guy. Also he got owned by the jab and if PW could make this work for him it would be a long night for floyd.
