I disagree with all but the last pick.

Floyd would lose to all three. Duran was a beast with skill and defense(check out how he elude many of leonards punches), leonard was superior in every way except defense and hearns was simply too tall, fast and powerful.

Hearns decisively, likely late KO, possible clear UD.

I totally feel ya. Duran ain't got shit on Castillo, and Leonard sure as hell ain't got shit on a washed up De La Hoya.

Hey in truth, if they had been in the same era. PBF wouldn`t even even want to be in the same arena as the Hitman. He never would have signed to fight him, for any kind of money.

hearns is a superb boxer with a great jab although mayweather is too a great boxer i think hearns would be able to out box mayweather .leonard could not out box hearns so mayweather wont and mayweather has not got leonards power so i will go for hearns by ko after the 12

Hearns was the better boxer. Mayweather won't be able to reach the man enough to do any damage.

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
It's the beauty of debate mate Your view on this is very persuasive though. There's just this sneaking feeling that Mayweather would hold on for dear life and survive the distance. He'd be battered,certainly. There's something about Mayweather's character that reminds me of Leonard. A little smug and aloof,maybe ?

This one has been done to the death. Anyone who thinks Floyd has a prayer against Hearns at 147 needs to check into rehab for a few months.
