Is Crawford as skilled as Floyd Mayweather was?

    Floyd is more skilled than Crawford, though Crawford is pretty skilled himself.

    It's a shame Crawford's resume doesn't match his skills. We might never know how good he really is. As much flack as Floyd gets for cherrypicking, he consistently fought champions, ex-champions, and top 10 contenders.

    Crawford obviously got top level skills.
    Even this past weekend is proof...he was able to completely shut out Postol a few years back...who just past weekend boxed Ramirez ears off.

    this comment should tell everyone what the answer is.
    i remember one of the mods on here (a few years back) saying that felix sturm had one of the best jobs in boxing.
    i replied, how do you know? he's never fought anybody.

    having skills against sub-par opposition is a lot easier to showcase when there's nobody to take you out of your comfort zone.

    Almost the same level of skills when it comes to SUCKER PUNCHING although Floyd is still slightly ahead vs. Ortiz than
    Crawford vs. Kahn balls punch

    Well I'm very familiar with Mayweather as a fighter and I don't sway with that crowd. When u speak of Mayweather getting hit, your speaking of Pretty Boy version. As we know the money version rarely got hit cleanly. How ever as u stated, the aggressive Mayweather which is the pretty boy version did get hit alot more than Crawford is not true. I believe u did mention some of the fights like Castillo the first fight, Chop Chop Corley, Augustus and Maidana. Mayweather was the aggressor the whole fight against Augustus and Chop Chop. So of course your going to get hit being offensive. Crawford gets hit often and against lesser fighters. Some of the fights he got touch in were Gamboa, Burns, Diaz, Benavidez and Kavaliauskas. I guess your trying to argue, Crawford has better defense than Mayweather which is ridiculous!

    Maybe Money Mayweather, but not Pretty Boy Floyd version.
