    Naturally around the same size. I just wanna hear this forums thoughts, I believe it’s Armstrong all the way of course but anyways- 12 rounds.

    Armstrong seemed inhuman at times. Would be great you see Floyd square against somebody with elite, old-school infighting skills.

    Rules and referee will make a huge difference here, as would glove sizes.

    Over 12, and 2005 rules, Mayweather has a really good chance.

    Do you think bigger gloves would limit Henry effecitveness inside?

    Yes, definitely, but much more important is the protection afforded to Mayweather's hands. He boxes carefully in the big gloves and still seriously injures them. I think his father had the same problem.

    I definitely wouldn't be picking Floyd if it's the small gloves.

    Mayweather on points, and quite easy.

    Should’ve specified. Armstrong gets his gloves, Mayweather his preference. Rule set is Henry’s.

    While not on the level Mayweather had some talent inside. He wouldn’t look totally lost.

    Precisely why I would like to see how he handles himself. Very underrated inside fighter.

    I think to a lesser degree he was like Duran using largely old means such as his inside fighting to beat up on guys who just didn't know how to really fight.

    It's not saying Mayweather it's the fact that he said "Easily" there is someone who posts in lounge saying Bivol would win every round against Archie Moore... Some people.
