How many of today's welter weight or jr welterweights would have gotten dropped or KO'd by that Mosley straight right and left hook that wobbled/rocked Mayweather?

Also name any of today's welters or jr welters that could or could not finish finish Mayweather in that 2nd round.


I think Garcia and possibly Devon could have survived, don't no bout the rest..Pacquiao could have probably?

Maidana, Marquez, Rios, Prod, Bradley

Pretty sure they'd all survive, and more I can't seem to think of right now

If Mosley did more vs Pac we'd have an easier answer.

Finishing Mayweather on the other hand is a different matter altogether since nobodies done it, I'd say Pac, Thurman (although he gets wide). The thing is it'd take someone relentless since nobody really has the skills to beat Mayweather, they can't hurt him and then stayed composed and wait, they need to hurt him, and get in quick and do damage, a guy like Prod isn't anywhere near the level of Mayweather but if he hurts Mayweather like that, am pretty sure he'd wade in throwing shots not matter what came back.

Hard to say because Mayweather survived that round moreso off of his ring savy and veteran tactics (tight guard, knowing the proper way to tie up, smothering Mosley's pucnhes, effective counter shots, letting Mosley punch himself out) than off of pure heart and a solid chin. I knew Mosley was good at getting people outta there when he annihilated Magarito.

None of them can take a punch like Margarito and he got put to sleep by Mosley so that only leaves Floyd, all the rest would've went to sleep.

and he landed two monstrous right hands on Floyd and he did not even think of retreating. Mosley hits harder than Marquez.. that shot Mosley landed puts Pac face first on the canvas.. THURMAN? He was on his bike like Soto Karas had big time power... chin is questionable

Man if Mosley had been able to recapture his youth in that fight..I think had that round happened even 3 years prior Floyd would've not survived. Mosley spent a ton of energy trying to pull Floyd off him instead of continuing to punch to the wide open body. Had Mosley not gotten over excited he would've shocked the world that night.

Outside of maybe 3 people in the division I think everyone would've closed the deal that night under those circumstances. Mosley just had nothing left after that round.

Floyd did not allow Mosely to close the deal and even came back with heat after rapid recovery... Floyd has never been separated from his senses and that hard task, along with a good chin, great defense, and freakish stamina makes him hard to KO.

Floyd actually smiled when he started doing the stanky leg dance. That fight was really interesting for 6 minutes then well we know what happen.
