    I think it's honestly a pick em, but I tend to believe Pryor would win in a close one.

    Floyd wide, although I wouldn’t mind seeing him lose. I just don’t think Pryor can get it done.

    Pryor is the type of swarmer that beats a fighter like FMM not great but is busy enough to create issues for Floyd....the concern is how wide open Pryor's defense was especially for counters a FMM specialty.....Floyd did not punch as hard as he could due to hand issues but he had some crack when needed I doubt he would be able to resist Pryors poor defense as quick as Floyd is

    Good fight. Pryor's pressure would test Mayweather like never before but Mayweather's speed and precision would be a serious test for Pryor's style.

    I think Pryor would leave himself open enough for Floyd to counter him but Floyd would be made to work harder than he ever had before. I'm going with Floyd by close decision but I can see Pryor outhustling him if not.

    I see just the opposite. Pryor would be to active for Mayweather Jr. And if punchers the pedigree of Cervantes, or Arguello who were excellent counter punchers themselves didn't discourage him Mayweather regardless of how sharp his counters are just wouldn't dissuade him. I see Pryor keeping Mayweather focused on defensive mode. Going on to win a dec.

    Could be .. I like the pressure/skills of a Hearns or Duran to handle May pretty easy … To me, these guys are on a different level than Pryor , I think May could hang with the Hawk

    Hatton hung with a prime Floyd for 6 rounds ffs.

    Pryor kills that zero in a big way.
