Shoulder roll wouldn't help FLoyd much either. Prime Roy vs Prime FLoyd, is a relatively easy win for Roy. But it might have been a snooze fest.
I disagree because thats what seperates Floyd from all the other great defensive guys like Toney, Hopkins, Winky, Pea, etc...

All of those guys have 1 defense. Everyone knows Floyd loves to shoulder roll but he can switch from fight to fight and round to round. Alot of fights he doesnt use it. He can use the high guard, hands out front, and so on. He dont have to stay in that shoulder roll with RJ and he is much quicker with both the hands & feet then Toney

Jones schooled Toney, so what do you think he'll do to a Gayweather?

Well Jones just happens to be one of the fastest, most awkward fighters to have ever boxed.

And his laid back, counter punching, shoulder roll style would be a cakewalk for Jones to figure out. I think Mayweather would do better in his more offensive pressure style.


Corley is an orthodox fighter?

I chose Mayweather by UD, based on the fact he is a more well rounded boxer, Roy and Mayweather were both highly skilled, and even though Roy was hard to hit even with his arms down, and I do think Floyd would not land his usual rate, you still don't want to fight with your arms down, the best example I can give with a fighter that was at Mayweathers weight class who shared roys style, Arms down, head and torso movements, lead lefts, is Prince Nas, Imagine how bad May would pick him apart(I'm not in any way saying prince is or was as good as Roy just the best style comparison in a similar weight class). I remember after Floyd beat Corrales and said he wanted Nas, Merchant responded prince is not gonna fight you after seeing this fight. Anyways Mayweather UD
YES!! I agree

About this post. Mayweather doesn't fight with his arms down?



I don't see how you can objectively say that Mayweather has more skills than Roy. Or if you want to say that he has more textbook skills - why is it European fighters get bashed for being like robots. They are fighting by the book to the letter.

Also, the Nas comparison is funny because we have a great comparison of someone Roy actually fought. Toney. Toney has the shoulder roll style defensive down. I don't recall Jones having THAT difficult of a time landing.

Roy didnt always fight with his hands down, at times he would hold his hands up, out and in front of his face.

Lets say Roy is the better athelete, Floyd is better techioncally, one punch Floyd is faster, Roy has slight better reflexes at the same weight I think there equally strong both more combos when they were younger at the same effiency, Floyd ring IQ is a hair better IMO. So if I had to pick in one fight I would a 115-113 Floyd split decision but out of 10 tens times tied at 5.
****king thank you!!!!! Sheesh...why cant people comprehend this question?

I think Floyd is a better all around boxer while Roy's is the best fighter I've seen from an athletic stand-point. It's a 50-50 fight for me.
Im not asking either of then to move up or down...the question is IF THEY WERE AT ANY WEIGHT WITH THE SAME STYLES...WHOS STYLE WOULD WIN?
