140: Mayweather close decision
147: Benitez close decision
154: Benitez wide decision
Same as what George wrote.
I think Mayweather would have to be the aggressor in this fight ...and he could do it ....Mayweather could do a really good Marlon Starling impression when he had to
Benitez wins at any weight 140 +.
Too big and just plain better to boot. Nothing complicated really.
Mayweather was superior in career and as a fighter, all weights. Dominates after round 6.
A heck of a fight at jr. Welter for fans that want to see great skills, it would come down too whom could force whom to lead. I'd lean Slightly to Mayweather Jr at the weight, he was closer to his best weight, and Benitez was young and growing.
At welterweight and Jr Middleweight, I like Benitez.
It’s how they’d have matched up, not who had the best career.
And Benitez was inferior.
Posters just try not to betray the 16 year old versions of themselves by pretending Benitez could win this.
Why would anybody have to pretend that the best version of Benitez could have beaten Floyd?
If you’re familiar with his career, you’d know that it would have been a very tough stylistic match up for Floyd, especially at the higher weights.
I'll agree with the general consensus and say Mayweather at 140, Benitez at 154, and it's a pick em at 147.
Floyd was great at defending late in his career but Benitez was otherworldly, especially against the ropes.
Floyd 147 and below, El Radar above 147.
He doesn't know.
Those loses, draws, split decisions...they don’t count because [insert excuse/elevate opponent].
