    Hearns fought Leonard, Cuevas, Hagler, Duran, & Hill. Five hall of fame fighters in their prime. He lost to Leonard but literally ended his career. He lost to Hagler but literally broke his hand splitting his wig. He lost to Barkley but beat his ass before the lucky punch. Hearns had the reach, similar speed, more power & equal chin to Floyd. Floyd has the conditioning & ring generalship. Floyd didn't want Paul Williams so he wouldn't want Hearns. Hearns chin was shaky but he like to trade when he didn't have to.

    Floyd has fought in the pocket with big punchers with handspeed before, Canelo and Oscar to name a couple, handled their power well also even though they couldnt tag Floyd much:ehh:. Floyd has been able to recover/recoup from shots that would KO most boxers. Impressive because they were shots Floyd didn't see imo/should have did more damage. Fire was returned/dog was brought out in those cases too where you forgot Floyd was even buzzed. I actually think it would benefit Floyd/not benefit Hearns to stay in the pocket instead of being in range of his jab and etc giving way to leverage:manny:

    Breh...you cannot compare Canelo at 22 years old and ODLH when he was going thru drug problems, to a Prime Hitman Hearns.


    22 year old Canelo could not box on Hearns' level and doesnt have the hand speed, physical size, or power of Hitman.


    DLH, who was a great boxer in his prime, wasn't the same fighter.



    I mean, I know yall love Floyd, but Thomas Hearns was all wrong for him. Maybe yall forgot:

    :whoa: I agree the motor city cobra is better than Canelo and DLH. I'm just saying facts prove Floyd could hold his own when a supposed disadvantage/circumstance is presented. A 35+ old Floyd beating a 22 yo Canelo speaks volumes. We've yet to see Floyd get KO'd or outboxed unlike Hitman. I understand styles make fights though, Hearns lost to a prime and maybe washed version of Barkley but did a job on a cat like Benitez (even though I don't believe that's an exact indicator of how a fight with floyd would go). I am on record of favoring Hearns at any weight above 147, breh is already an exceptional boxer, but with the physical advantages that would be a tough feat:ehh:.

    Yeah if not that one then the Tony fight:damn:

    I think Tommy had a point to prove since he got stopped in the first one and ended up giving Barkley opportunities and punishment too
