The combination of the two has a lot of potential.

I'm not entirely sure that the reach disparity would amount to much in the ring because I think it would be largely Whitaker's right lead vs Mayweather's right cross. The extra distance for the cross to travel would offset his reach advantage.

I just can't see Floyd using his left jab all that much in the fight.

But I do agree that Floyd would be the aggressor. I just think that Whitaker would nick it on the back foot.

When two defensive fighters meet it makes for slow fights. Still Whitaker is in another class.

I agree, if there is one who could make Floyd Mayweather look bad, it's sweet pea, but it's gonna be close, 7-5 for Whitaker.

And Whitaker never got beaten decisively until he was 35. If he is fighting now, he will fought the best, Pernell would fight Manny Pacquiao anytime, unlike Mayweather.

Whitaker was a little bit faster IMO, but to be bluntly honest the result would depend on whether your talking Whitaker pre-Crack Pipe and Booze.

I think jabbing if Pea jabs would be the simple thing to do, especially with a reach advantage, and Floyd would not fail to do so. And i don't see that jabbing contest last very long.
