72 inches, dog.
those are some long arms.
floyd is ducking wladimir.
on the real, though, guys: great fighters fight guys who are larger than they are. they always have. they always will. being larger is an advantage. if you are so good that you need to fight guys larger than you are to be competitive it is not a bad thing.
micky walker used to fight heavyweights.
bring on the junior middleweights. canelo and trout are the two best in the world at the weight class / who are that size. floyd is the size of a WW, but he's the top ranked jr MW in the world, and i'd tab him to beat everybody else at the weight.
if he beats them, and the money is right, he can fight martinez. you really can't accuse the man of "ducking" somebody in that situation.
