Duran was a ferocious fighter for 15 rounds compared to these 12 round fighters so Floyd would be busted up, Floyd likes to fight dirty and if he did that to Duran is like poking a stick to a lion. Duran by Ko. Lets face it Floyd would lose to the 4 of Duran,Leonard,Hearns and Haglar all would win By Ko. If Floyds father fought today he would be at least a 3 division Champ but when He faced Sugar Ray his plans of being Champ were derailed.
what a load of crap
floyd doesn't tire his opponents out using his defense...he sets up quick counters that way
in fact i've never seen floyd tire out an opponent, he always fights at a moderate pace and makes his opponents fight at the same pace
hatton was not fatigued as he's always enjoyed great conditioning...he was frustrated and got wild just like he did in the first two rounds with pac
people who think mayweather only relies on his shoulder roll for defense should learn how to watch boxing...he used it primarily early in his career but certainly not exclusively... he actually switches up his defense tactics now that he's become less mobile
