Floyd is at another level than JMM defensively, plus he uses his physical attributes FULLY.
JMM at times would throw shots that would land on anyone else, but not Floyd, both because Floyd is a defensive wizard, and because JMM was just too small, with too little reach for some of those shots to reach him.
JMM was just too small to be competitive with a Floyd whom could easily compete at 154 if he wanted too, he has the size, reach, etc. JMM is an overblown lightweight honestly.
I don't consider that fight to be a measure of anything other than a great small guy fighting a great much bigger guy.
