Makes sense. I totally forgot about the rule change. I don't know about the muscle part but adding more weight makes sense.

Even then, it's not exactly easy to bully Mayweather around, his pocket fighting and strength is very good.

I like how the 3 people that voted Floyd have never come into BH before, have you ever even seen footage of Robinson at WW before ?.

I hate it when people downplay too much the modern fighters, because of the love of the past favorite fighters. Boxing fans who have been watching it for 3-4 decades already barely accepts that the newer fighters can be as good sometimes better as the past boxers. However this time it's pretty obvious that the past boxer is absolutely better than the current.

SRR wins this one w/ authority.

What welterweight in his prime did Mayweather beat that gave the TS the idea he would stand a chance against Robinson. Actually the only Sugar Ray I'd give Floyd a chance against is Seales.

Kids these days!

So you claim. But I'll just say the sport has evolved, I truly think, the technical level is much greater today then back then.

I think it is as well, I honestly feel just as in every other sport the athletes of today are better conditioned, and better trained with better technique, but they lack the strength of the old time favorites. The old days were a test as in survival was hard for most people.

Just like in the nfl, players would play with broken fingers without cortisone shots etc. THEY WERE JUST TOUGHER, AND DID A LOT MORE FOR LESS, SO YOU GOTTA LOVE EM.

I think floyd could hold his own though IMO.

We need a time machine to settle all this madness. lol.

Yeah, retardation is a given when the drones from NSB come trickling into Boxing History. Typical fan-boi logic at work: Favorite active fighter = best fighter ever. Floyd beats a well past-it 38 year old Shane = Hagler beating Hearns. It's typical.

would be intresting to see how ray would break floyds defense, id pick ray to win simply because i dont think floyd has the power to back ray up and potshotting just isnt enough against someone like robinson
