    Bump
    Some of these responses are funny, but annoy me at the same time, 'Pryor wins, may even stop Floyd' a lot were saying, get real, Pryor had a bad defence and lunged often with his chin in the air, he would get measured and timed, measured and timed over and over again, he didn't make adjustments in the ring either, Mayweather may lose the first few, but would start timing Pryor's rhythm which was not hard to do for someone like Mayweather and that was what Mayweather was best at, figuring his opponent out the timing them and getting used to their rhythm, Mayweather would land his jab often too, to the body and head and Pryor would come rushing in and Mayweather would time him with uppercuts, mix it up, lean out the way of his swings and counter too and mayweather if cornered would avoid Pryor's combos by slipping and obviously that shoulder roll which he would counter off of, even when Pryor does get in, Mayweather can clinch obviously
    Lets not make out like Mayweather wouldn't win this fight

    Floyd never fought at the kind of pace Pryor did. The busiest fight of his life would be a slow night by Pryor's standards. Pryor also had a combination of hand speed and power that we wouldn't see again until prime Pacquiao.

    Not an unwinnable fight for Floyd, but if anyone gets it done it's The Hawk.

    Phillies hero falls. Pryors offense overwelms Floyds 1 punch at a time pace. **** or get off the pot vs Pryor plus he was a great natural boxer with weird angles. Better amateur than Floyd too. Better fighter. Phillie cries all the way home sobbing in his cheesesteak on Larry Bowa/Bernie Parent Way.

    I also feel like Mayweather was very hard to get through on clean, he was always moving when you are throwing at him, subtle movements, but what made him just able to avoid by inches and counter, Mayweather would be landing the cleaner punches, to land clean and noticeable on Mayweather you had to set up a punch like Mosley and Pryor didn't really set up single punches, he would just constantly throw fast combos, he didn't really have a great ring IQ

    Pryor beats him from pillar to post. Floyd never came across a hurricane like Pryor. Pryor KO 10

    I don't see this as too difficult of a fight for Mayweather. He'd own Pryor i the second half.

    Weirdly, Maywether never fought at the pace of Mayweather, Corrales, Hatton, Ndou, Chavez, Cotto, and others. It's strange how he won those fights.

    Floyd would never get in the ring with any prime fighter of Pryor's caliber. But , let us say he does for some reasom

    Castillo whipped floyd in the first fight and got robbed, Maidena and De la Hoya should have also got the nod against Mayweather. Mayweatehr is a great fighter, but Pryor would overwhelm hiim easily.

    Pryor wins in a shutout.
