There was some SERIOUSLY TOUGH competition back then..

Hearns
Leonard
Pryor
Duran
Curry
Taylor
Chavez
Whittaker

How would Floyd have fared back in that era between LW & WW?

So Hearns doesn't stop or beat Floyd?

That's a nightmare match up for him right there!

Pryor would give him fits, too.

I would pick Mayweather over Curry, Taylor and Leonard because of Mayweather's better defense. The others would be interesting, very interesting and Whittaker would be the only one I would put my money on to best him, Whittaker is the better version of Floyd's boxing skills, if there ever was such a thing.

I'm so glad op included the Hawk on his list. Alexis Arguello (RIP) had a similar aura as Floyd when he fought Pryor and we saw what happened in those fights. Pryors legacy is forever tainted by his association with Panama Lewis I'm afraid. I also think SRL would give Floyd trouble. Phone Post

Oops I forgot to slmention Sweetpea would too. Chavez is one of the best ever but we all know how Floyd fares against prototypical Mexican brawlers. The Mayweather family seems to have that part down. Phone Post

Good post Johnny D. Whitacker reminds me so much of Floyd and it would be an interesting matchup to say the least. Phone Post

Floyd loses handily, imo, to everyone except Curry, Taylor and Whittaker and he could easily lose to Taylor and Whittaker too.

Floyd is a lot of hype in a bullshit era where he isn't even fighting the best in his division...

I would kill to see it, I can't think of two better examples of pure "text book" boxing during my lifetime, maybe all time. Phone Post 3.0

He would have at least a few loses. He also would not be cherry picking fights like he does now.
