Default Pernell Whitaker vs Floyd Mayweather jr

Based on some interesting exchanges on my Benny Leonard vs Floyd Mayweather thread, I became interested in who would win between Whitaker and Mayweather, I believe Whitaker because in my opinion he has the better defense and throws a greater volume of punches. Thoughts?

Whitaker. In a close fight.

A lot of the rounds will be hard to score and with little going on.

But, there will be a tremendous skill level on show and I feel like it's a fight where the best will be brought out of each other.

Prime for Prime Pernell would just outwork him with the jab, and underrated body punching. Just score more points in a decently close competitive fight.

135-140 I would pick Whitaker. 147 I would pick Mayweather. By close decision in both fights.

I don't think we would see much jabbing in this one.

this

i'm also on the fence about 140. maybe floyd wins this one


floyd definitely wins at 147, though

and i'd pick whitaker to win at 135


the weight would be a huge factor in my estimation

Stylewise Pea has the advantage. If it was not for the lack of focus he occasionally showed I would bet on him.

Incidentally I think this fight would me more violent than what most ppl think it would be.

I think it would be a stinker that you wouldn't be able to take your eyes off!

I've got Whitaker by close decision, even at 147. The difference being workrate.
