It would take a past legend to beat him from 147 to 154 and even that would not be easy. Today, can't see anyone beating Floyd. From the past, I would say Leonard could do it, probably Hearns as well. Duran, ONLY if he could show what he showed at Lightweight and the first Leonard fight. More than likely, it's a repeat of Duran quitting like in the second Leonard fight. Benitez might hold him to a draw. He kills Curry, Starling, Breland.

Robinson beats him because he was so good there is no second.

Marvin hagler- Anyone who steps in the ring with Marvin hagler is in for a tough fight. Never been knocked down in his whole career. I have no doubt Mayweather could outbox him, but Hagler was also a good boxer and could adjust well. Idk how this fight would go, would turn out to be a close decision i feel.

Sugar Ray Leonard- Their styles are very very very close. Mayweather more defensively sound but it would be a good fight in my opinion. Could go either way

Hearns- Just because of the power in his right hand, it could be lights out for anyone. Duran knows this. Mayweather wins by decision only if he stays away from the right hand.

Pernell Whitaker- Would look more like a dance battle than a fight haha.

Sugar ray Robinson- Would be a great fight.

I don't think anyone presently can beat Floyd. GGG would be a good fight but he gets hitt alotttt. If he got too close to floyd. Mayweather is holding on for dear life haha, then pot shots and left hooks all day. He has the highest Puncher's chance of all the present fighters.
