    Brian Ortega
    Zabit Magomedsharipov
    Yair Rodriguez
    Chan Sung Jung
    Calvin Kattar
    Josh Emmett

    Tony Ferguson
    Conor McGregor
    Dan Hooker
    Charles Oliveira
    Paul Felder
    Diego Ferreira

    And Yes I know this will probably be wasted or put into The Lightweights, just seems dry today so give this a little thought.

    An MMA fighter won't beat a pro boxer in a boxing match.

    One in a million maybe get lucky... Hail Mary puncher's chance

    If he agreed to fight in MMA gloves then I might have a slight bit of interest. With normal boxing gloves, no way.

    If it was boxing with MMA gloves, Emmet would have the best chance of a Hail Mary KO.. Otherwise, not a chance, I don't think most of them have a chance against way lesser boxers than Floyd.

    Brian Ortega's Jab's in his last fight were close to pro-boxing level though imo.

    if he at LEAST allowed kicks and knees ... more than a few of these guys would KO Mayweather.

    But without that .... none of their hands are good enough nor should anyone expect that to be the case.

    Maybe Floyd should try boxing Ngannou so he can show if his skill gap in boxing can beat someone that much bigger than him.

    It’s a really stupid at this point for any MMA fighter to challenge a pro boxer and a little cowardly on Mayweather’s part.

    Imagine Usian bolt challenging other athletes in other sports to a 100m race.

    I will never understand the hostility towards boxing from MMA fans

    It would only be fair under kickboxing rules even then I think Floyd TKOs most "MMA" guys with their awful striking

    No MMA fighter will beat Floyd in a boxing match. Yes, boxing is a component of MMA, but it’s only one part. The worlds best marathon runners would smoke the worlds best triathletes in a marathon...it’s the natural order of things.

    If Floyd wants to box, I’m sure Bud Crawford or Errol Spence Jr. would be happy to fight him...but he doesn’t want a competitive fight, he wants a payday and to be able to tout himself as being “better” than MMA fighters.

    Floyd is just broke, need some easy money in less than 3 minutes like he did with Nasukawa.

    He embarrasses any MMA fighter below 185. Hell, he clowns most 185-ers as well.

    He UD's anyone above that weight too but it would look more competitive because of the size disparity.

    MMA guys would need some sort of rule change to help them. Idk, kicks to the body and head? Straight boxing it is laughable, though looking back on it, Conor didn't too so bad and made a sh!t ton of money.
