I think Pryor was probably too powerful for Mayweather.
Pryor would outhustle and outwork him I feel. I think it would be close but Mayweather wouldn’t be willing enough to get Pryor’s respect enough to stop him.
I think Mayweather had underrated power. He seems to have had enough pop to hurt your feelings.
Pryor was smaller than Ricky Hatton.
But I think Pryor was the much better fighter. He was more powerful, faster and more versatile than Ricky Hatton. Pryor had size disadvantages against almost every opponent.
The way I see it, if Aaron comes out fired up, and he usually does, then I see him pushing Floyd to his limits and beyond and when that happens, the fighter is forced out of his comfort zone starts to lose his composure.
I really dont see Aaron following Floyd around the ring, playing right into his hands and taking shots on the way in and, never finding an opening, and calmly settling for a points loss like a brainless canelo
Pryor will get to him, repeatedly rough him up, and ruffle his feathers for another inspired late round tko
He fought a blown up 130 in a his marquee fight who never did much at 140. He wouldn't be able to have Panama Lewis feed him stimulants in the championship rounds against Mayweather either.
You don't have an ounce of objectivity.
I am not a doctor. I just like to watch him fight.
