    Back when Paul Williams was being mooted to fight Floyd, I thought he had a massive chance of pulling off a victory. Huge reach and huge output. Not as fast or as educated as some of Floyd's opponents, but had the tools to make Floyd step outside of his comfort zone due to his physical attributes.

    Thoughts?

    think if Floyd loses it'll be to someone who can win a jab battle with him. Maybe a GGG type puncher could beat him too with 1 punch.

    Williams could, think Andrade at 154 at well over 6ft, and maybe lara are the best current fighters to have a chance, neither have much fanbase to make the fight financially viable for Floyd.

    at WW, khan for me would have the best chance, whether he deserves the fight is another matter. but his jab and output could win rounds.

    I don't think so. Look at the way Quintana and Martinez were able to counter him.

    Nice one! He always seemed genuine and down to earth.

    I think with his output alone, let alone size, he would have gave Floyd a tough time.

    PW was an old school throw back fighter.

    All wrong for Floyd & would have KO'ed him
