Default What were Floyds weaknesses when he was fighting at lightweight?

Or was he a perfect fighter?

and don't bring up the first castillo fight. Floyd was injured so really none of his weaknesses were exposed.

He lacked the experience that he has now.

He was very careless at times with his straight right. He practically ran at you with it at times.

He let the crowd effect his performance vs Carlos Hernendez. he wanted to put on a show and started way to fast. Ended up breaking his hand.

None really. He handily beat the best lightweight of his era. He was perfect for that weight class.

His hand issues surfaced more. Probably due to work rate.

He wasn't as strong at 135 as the other, more established lightweights. He had trouble adjusting to their strength initially.

So Floyd has brittle hands. I guess that's a weakness.
