But, I don't think Ray or Marvin were in their absolute primes at that point, but still really good. I think the same can be said for Floyd vs. Manny if they finally fight in May 2012, lets just hope Floyds legal issues and Manny's cut don't prevent Bob from actually attempting to make the fight.
I made those pics before Mosley fought Pac... but anyway..
I'd say when Floyd gets around 37 or so you will see a major jump in athleticism, but realistically nobody can say for sure, everyone is different.
Floyd looked similar against Ortiz than he did against Shane, but it's hard to tell because the Ortiz fight didn't go on for too long.
I think you hit the nail on the head, if Floyd-Manny fight eachother in 2012... I think they will both be slightly
past their prime, but that's ok..
