Would Mayweather jr be able to handle big punchers like Hearns and Jackson?

    I think Floyd has balls , but Trying to work his way inside seems like suicide to me ....Don’t think he’d have the power to get Hearns respect.....Like you said earlier I would be a up hill climb regardless of how Floyd fights ....

    Couldn't be a worse match up out there for a guy like Floy, no doubt. The balls thing wasn't meant as disrespect in your direction btw. Sorry if that came off wrong.

    Talent is irrelevant. Skills are what matters. And I would say Floyd is more skilled and had a more durable career.

    Ricardo Lopez is the greatest in history. Perfection in technique and amateur/pro record.

    His KO ratio was nothing special though.

    The ratio may not have been the highest but he had scary finishes. His technique was pure perfection.

    I think he'd beat Jackson at 54. Very dangerous fight, obviously, but he matches up relatively well. Hearns would likely beat him, but it wouldn't have that much to do with Hearns' power.

    So why wasn't it better if it was perfection and he was the greatest of all time

    How on earth does he beat jackson? Jackson is way too dangerous, and big.

    By winning more rounds than him on 2 or more judges scorecards.

    he is tiny compared to him and cant afford to slip up a single time, which we know he did historically to mosley, to castillo etc Smaller guys who dont pack in as much in their punches

    Mayweather didn't really "slip up" against Castillo. Castillo was just a really problematic matchup for him. He likely had the best feet of any pressure fighter of the last 20-30 years even if he was inconsistent and flawed in other ways.

    He got hit with some zingers for 12 rounds.

    Hence, not a "slip up".

    I think Hearns beats almost every welterweight ever

    He'd be Mayweather's kryptonite.

    Floyd would clinch soooo much, it'd probably suck to watch...Massive reach, long straight puncher like Hearns. Yeah that's a clinchfest

    Jackson would get outclassed by the elites but he sure was fun. Basically a mini Deontay Wilder

    Talent is skills. So you would pick Floyd over prime RJJ? lol

    Higher than Hearns.
