Default Re: OT: Mayweather ESPNchat: The World Awaits

NO WAY Mayweather beats Winky.

As for the Floyd/Oscar showdown, this will be a fight for the ages. I really don't know who to root for. If this were 7-8 years ago, I would have stood behind Floyd. But I have grown to respect Oscar over the years. Tough to decide. I remember when Oscar struggled against an aging Pernell Whitaker a decade ago and Pernell didn't even throw that many punches in the fight, although Sweet Pea is a much better defensive fighter than Floyd is.

I don't see Oscar playing that counter puncher approach. He'll be the aggressor. Force Mayweather to react. If Oscar tries to match speed for speed, he'll be in trouble.
