    Not sure...but no one in his legit weights worries me.

    he fought lennox lewis when he was pretty green and lennox exposed an extremely weak chin
    like REAL weak
    im pretty sure that was his name, i havent heard about him in a while

    Who COULD Could being the key word !

    Oscar De La Hoya
    Ricky Hatton
    Antonio Margarito
    Kermit Cintron
    Juan Lazcano
    Miguel Angel Cotto
    Jose Luis Castillo
    Shane Mosley
    Roman Karmazin

    now who has the better chances? I think
    Roman Karmazin because he is big awkward as hell and very energetic / Russian Tough
    Oscar De La Hoya because well he is De La Hoya !
    Jose Luis Castillo because he already did, anyway thats how i saw it

    Ricky Hatton I feel is the only fighter right now that 'could' however I'd put my money on Floyd in that fight.

    Cory Spinks is a southpaw and he has the best jab of anyone Floyd has ever faced and he can fight inside and outside and lays traps for fighters like Floyd. Notice in the Judah fight what Judah did that was effective, he made Floyd lead and he countered him instead of leading which is what Floyd wanted, when he leaded was when Floyd could break him down and lead later. Spinks would make Floyd lead and stop him in the lead, also, Spinks would be the slickest guy that Floyd has ever fought as well. So we could be looking at a fight with a bunch of hitting and missing, but Spinks also has size with his reach and ability, so I think Spinks would stand a very good chance of beating Floyd Mayweather and Spinks doesn't lose his composure when he is pressed and doesn't get hit a lot. Best thing about Spinks is he has more then reflexes he has timing, once he gets a fighter timed he beats them. But the only times Judah caught him with the knockdown and the hurt instance was during a round Spinks was winning. I don't think mayweather has that kind of power to make him pay for it. with Spinks you have to hurt him bad with one shot, because if you don't he's not there for the followup. I think Spinks would win via decision if they ever fought

    Well done Starr, just when I think your predictions can't get any more absurd you come up with another classic.

    No way Cory beats Floyd, he's got no power and Floyd is by far the better boxer.


    I reckon Joel Julio will be the one to end him :P

    You know power isn't everything but apparently you think it is since you think Joel Julio would beat Floyd

    Floyd could literally get out of bed after 8 hours of sleep and have the opening bell rung within 4 minutes, and still win a ridiculous UD over Sorry Spinks

    very articulated and well thought out
    you make a strong case for cory spinks even though i couldnt possibly disagree with you more.
    floyds power is vastly underrated and spinks doesnt have the boxing skills that floyd does

    but good post nonetheless

    Well let me ask you. Do you think Floyd has the power to seriously hurt Spinks with one shot? or would he need to accumulate?
