Both were great, Pernell relied more on athleticism, Floyd more on pure technique and reaction punches. It's 50/50.

I'm going with Whitaker but Mayweather is still a great defensive fighter.

Whitaker..by a fair bit. Floyd's top notch defense will last longer tho, as he's more fundamental in his approach.

This is no knock on Floyd tho being inferior to Whitaker in this department. Floyd's offense is clearly better than Whitaker's, much more so than Whitaker's defense is better than Floyd's.

Difference between Mayweather and Whitaker's defence is.............Whitaker was more aggressive and had more heart and beat better fighters.

i am sitting on the fence as far as who had the better defence goes But i cannot agree with you that Mayweathers offense was better than Whitakers, Floyd has virtually `no-offense` where as Sweet-Pea had an excellent offense

But the 140 and 147 divisions were not as strong in Whitaker's time as in Mayweather's, arguably.

While you can make an arguement for that, Whitaker beat the better opposition.

Floyd hasn't fought the best while Whitaker did.

Even if that is the case, which im not saying it is, it does not really hold much water because Floyd wont fight the 147 pounders and he did not fight Tszyu either.
