Then Floyd loses.
Unless Nelson gets put away within 12. Floyd can't win. Floyd spars and trains for 15 rounds anyways. Rotating fresh sparring partners. With a shortened resting period. So, I believe Floyd could go 15. His hands however will undoubtedly break.
So Nelson will win if he doesn't get put away within 12. Because anywhere from 8th onwards. Floyd's hands will be ready to fall apart. And I think it's possible for Floyd to put him away. So I wouldn't say it's impossible. I'd give him a 55% chance to do it. Specially with 4oz on.
****. Floyd could probably break his hands and just avoid the rest of the fight. But 50 is what makes me say, Floyd loses.
But 12 round fight with all the other modern advantages is equally ridiculous.
