Well he was better at lower weights but I see little reason why Whitaker at WW (especially pre-1996) wouldn't be successful. He was still a great fighter at 147.

The only guys that could compete with Sweat Pea would be Manny and Floyd.

No one knows who would win though.

If they say they know, they're probably bias.

Yep. I think P beats Floyd and Manny. And yes, I'm bias toward P.

I could see Pac getting lucky with a flash knockdown. Ala Buddy Mcgirt.

But Whitaker would frustrate Manny with his defense.
