    Yes GGG beats the ''greatest fighter of our generation x 2'' in the vast majority of observer's eyes when he's a senior citizen and said ''greatest fighter of our generation'' is jacked out of his mind on PEDs and he doesn't warrant a place. SMH

    Style match up. Bigger southpaw pressure fighter. Spence is a machine. He would be coming forward all night behind a jab and high guard and Floyd would be on his bike the whole night. Floyd wouldn't out jab Spence, and wouldn't outwork him. His pity pat wouldn't bother Spence in the least, and Spence would bang on that body whenever he got close. Floyd would be defensive all night as opposed to scoring.

    Name a single fight where someone just walked through Floyd's shots.

    Maidana and Castillo come to mind. Floyd never fought an equivalent of Spence, outside of Spence working him in sparring. My point is Floyd would be shelled up and on his bike all night. Spence isn't short like Pac either.

    Maidana and Castillo did not walk through his shots.
    But if your argument is the inside fight, then sure, we can have at it. However the proposal that Spence would just walk through his shots is nonsense.
    Also, something to keep in mind is that Maidana fought an old Floyd. And supposedly Floyd had shoulder issues in the first Castillo fight. I have no idea how legitimate that is, but he did put on dominant performances in both rematches.

    Spence is good, but he doesn´t move his head at all. And he is slow. Manny will highlight plenty of his flaws.

    Showtime is reporting about a million PPV buy for the circus act. That is quit a hustle.

    Then Floyd didn't excessively clinch.

    What do you think of Maidana (on the night he fought Floyd) vs Spence (modern Spence, not back then)?

    This is a genuine question not a prelude to me launching into a tirade about it.
