If he chooses his opponents based on any physical characteristic, it's more likely to be reach more than height.

As far as I'm aware, the only opponents that had longer reach than Floyd (72") were De La Hoya (73") and Corrales (73").

A lot of the fighters Floyd didn't fight but could have had longer reach - Williams (78"), Martinez (75"), and Lara (75").

The funny thingbis I made an exact thread a week or 2 ago about floyd never being in a fight since dlh were he gave up both reach and height larry came in *****in up a storm as usuall and the mods deleted my thread because there were enough floyd threads yet others stayed up

..................Height..........reach
Floyd jr........5'8................72"
Hatton.........5'7................65"
Jmm...........5'7................67"
Mosley.......5'8................71"
Ortiz............5'9................70"
Cotto..........5'7.................67"
Guerrero....5'8.................70"
Canelo.......5'8.................70"
maidana....5"7.................69"
Yup seems like Floyd's always the "smaller" guy lol to any one who says that an in in height or few inches in reach mean nothing gtfo floyd lives on the outside and uses that to his advatage when he throws those straight rights.(and yes I realize corales was bigger and to this day remains his greatest win but monsters are diff at 147-154)
let's look at other fighters he didn't fight
............... ....height.........reach
Floyd jr........5'8................72"
Margarito....5'11.............73"
Williams......6'1...............79"
Potentially who he could fight that are within weight and bigger
lara.............5'9...............79"
Martinez....5'10..............73"
ggg............5'10..............70"
trout..........5"9................72"
For shts and giggles

Using the logic in this thread, why does anyone wanna see Pacquiao vs Floyd, Floyd does have every physical advantage on Manny.

Let's not forget Bradley too, while we're still on the subject.
