    Mayweather Sr. Does he have any chance vs a welter weight Ray Robinson or is this just another day at the office for Ray? Plus, how good would Mayweather Sr be compared to a lot of Robinson's welter opposition?

    You saw what Ray Leonard did to him - what is a hungry, SRR pre-Doyle going to do with him?

    He has no chance versus a focused SRR.

    How well does he compare - he's not horrible, but he's no Kid Gavilan.

    Gavilan would have boxed Sr`s head off even though they were both featherfisted, Gavilan would have done far better v Sr than Leonard did, Robi would overpower Sr the same way Leonard did.
