I don't think any lightweight (possibly Floyd's natural weight) beats Hearns, especially one who wasn't a big puncher. Floyd isn't going to outbox Tommy, he isn't going to hurt Tommy, he isn't going to beat Tommy. Wide Ud, or he lands a clean right hand late in the fight and stops PBF.

Hearns wide UD, if at WW, I see Floyd waiting for too many counter opportunities that would never happen against the Motor City Cobra who would keep him at bay with his long jab and right hand.

At 154 this is a slaughter.

Hearns would triumph. But I think that Mayweather's cute enough to take The Hitman the distance.

Stevie; I see this as a systematic dissection by Hearns, SRL only had a couple of good rounds against tommy & he had far more versatility to his game than Mayweather in regard to foot speed/movement/feint's/offensive speed ect & he was still comprehensivly outboxed up until the 13th round.

I just dont see floyd surviving past 8, i'am really trying to put together something in my head that see's Mayweather having any effect tacticly on Hearns but it's a blank.

All roads for me lead to absolute domination & destruction from the 1st ring @ ding with Hearns coming straight out of the traps like a greyhound & chasing Mayweather repeatedly into the ropes from behind that piston like jab & just waiting to drop the good night kiss onto Mayweather's exposed chin.

SRL opted to leg it rapid from Hearns & keep it at distance for most of the fight & relying on his blistering speed in countering Hearns with clusters of 4/5/6 punches but in the process got repeatedly nailed himself coming into Hearns range. I can't see Mayweather being able to execute such a tactic not with his style & he's deff no match for SRL in any of the above department IMO.

This fight has beatdown for Mayweather stamped all over it as the styles also for me actually put it into the miss-match catergary, i just can't for the life of me see what Mayweathers got & can do to off-set whats going to be coming his way.

I'd love the face-off you can just imagine those dead hitman eyes just boring straight into Floyds just like a snake looking at a mouse

At 154 it would be a shular style annihilation

How on earth does Mayweather keep Hearns off him & survive!!! never mind win at 147/154 just can't see it mate, as i said IMO Mayweather is 2nd div compared to SRL at WW & he was "Blowing it" until that 13th round avalanch he unloaded onto Tommy

Unfortunatly this is the 1st time you & i have had differing opinions, amazing is'nt it this wonderful drug of our's that we can see 2 different scenerios

Can anyone think of a worse stylistic match up for Floyd?

Hearns left hook to the body will utterly break Mayweather through the first five, with the long jab pumping into Floyds face. The guy has no defence for a long jab and he will not be able to start up any offence. After five rounds of one sided pasting Tommy delivers the coup de gras with a huge right halfway through the sixth before a riot breaks out between the Mayweathers and the Kronk entourage.

Hearns by KO within 5 rounds. Hearns reach and speed will be a nightmare for Floyd, his only hope would be to fight on the inside and he doesn't have the chin to repeatedly survive Hearns power on the way in. Basically it's a blown up lightweight vs someone who KOd cruiserweights later in his career. I see a repeat of the Duran or Cuevas fights, or maybe Floyd survives and loses a lopsided Benitez-type fight.

Small guys with short reach have no chance at all against Tommy.

Hearns, 2nd rd KO. PBF`s slick, but Hearns would be all over him early. He wouldn`t be able to roll and smother all of Hearns`s shots. And with Hearns, at 147 it only takes one. I felt as though Hearns was weight drained a bit in the first Leonard fight. For those who might ask why would hearns starch PBF, when he couldn`t do it to SRL. Leonard was a more solid at 147 than PBF, better chin more power. If PBF went looking for Hearns, and found him, he`d be in trouble. This reminds me of Bob Foster vs. Dick Tiger sizewise. Hearns freakish hight and reach would be a nightmare for PBF...

You need to brawl inside to get at Hearns. Not PBF's style.

Hearns by KO in the middle rounds.

Hearns by dominant KO.

I believe Floyd would win a wide UD over Duran at welterweight, a split over Leonard at welterweight, and would get KO'ed by Hearns at welterweight.
