    They are a decade apart, thus a different era.
    The 30s is not the same as the 40s.

    That is true, SRR is far better overall.

    I never said such a thing, you just extrapolated it. SRR was one of kind. I dunno if he would be no. 1 today, but he'd definitely be top 10.

    For the 4th time now we're comparing speed. It's odd you made the conversation about power. Armstrong is faster and better than a 38 year old Mosley.

    If a 14-7 guy fought a 7-0 guy, I know where I'd put my money.

    A large reach advantage, my friend. One does not give up reach and bear Mayweather.

    Mayweather fought in the ams. Armstrong fought a lot of filler.

    You have no basis for comparing speed since (1) Armstrong exists on shitty film and (2) Shane was fast as hell.

    They fought the same competition, decade is nothing.
    Only because of your opinion, nothing else.
    If he fought against bums who wouldn't make top 30, how can you know that he was special? You trash every single SRR contemporary, but not him for some strange reason.

    You can bet anything you want, doesn't mean you are right.
    You are not my friend. So now size advantage means reach? Who cares about reach here? Armstrong always fought at reach disadvantage and he built his style to overcome that.
    Floyd has 84 ams and pro fights combined, which is still less than a half of Armstrong pro fights.

    We have adjusted Armstrong films, he looks incredible in them.

    Show the films. A poster asked for a full fight earlier, not an agenda driven highlight reel.

    Did you adjust his reach too?

    Provide links to those "adjusted" films, perhaps I've missed something.

    From what I see in this video, he stands no chance whatsoever against Floyd. Floyd will outpoint him at will.
