apart from that floyd will be 34 years old by the time this fight will happen..they werent ready for him before, roach saw something in the mosley fight.

either way a past prime floyd still beats manny, but is floyd being past his prime an advantage for manny? like if floyd was in his prime he would massacre pacquiao gatti style, but right now since floyd is past his prime this match-up becomes a bit closer
WTF? floyd is ~2 years older than pac. *****s goin out of control

I concur. I think it's farcical that everyone is jumping on this ridiculous bandwagon just because ****-Roach think so. It will be interesting to hear what the Mayweather camp thinks about it but even more so, what Mosley's assessment of Mayweather is when he's recovered and had time to reflect.

Past your prime in sports don't mean ****.... A veteran with good skills make up for age..... I.e. Ali, Robinson, Holyfield , La motta , Chavez see where im going.... Most great fighter who fight past there prime have the skills to still be better of 90% of boxing......

Floyd has been past his prime even before Roach made his statements..but people are confusing the meaning, past his prime doesnt exactly mean hes no longer good..just..Floyd is past it in the sense that hes not what he used to be..but he is still great and the best boxer in the world right now..

Prime is a hard thing to nail down.

I think Physically he may be past his prime in the sense that he probably isn't quite as fast as he used to be.

But mentally I think he's sharper then ever.

I like to think of Bernard hopkins, who at age 36 I would consider still in his prime. It was his peak imo because mentally, he became a true executioner of his abilities and strategy. I see floyd in the same way right now.

Sure he may have lost fractions of a second of the speed of his punch, but he is on top of his game right now.
