If Floyd stands still long enough to get hit flush with the best punch a Youtuber ever threw he deserves the embarrassment that comes with it.

Surely 1 shot from the bigger guy could do damage to Floyd!!

And therein lies the problem for the u-tuber. Some of the best pros in the world failed to land a significant punch on Floyd when he was boxing.

Now that he's a bit older and retired AND padding his already padded record, I still don't see any rank amateur getting close to landing a clean shot on Floyd.

It pretty much depends on who this youtuber is. If he is some big athletic guy with a past in football, power lifting , wrestling, he could handle a little guy like Floyd. If just some big mouth with no skills.........

Damn if you're not a one trick pony---------always hyping non-boxing jocks like they really stand a chance against a multi-divisional world champion.

It doesn't matter, this is all about the $$$. I doubt Mayweather has slacked off enough to let a chancer hit him but they are both doing it for a payday not because it is a competitive fight.

It all depends on who is in the fight. You can't just........boxer wins!

Let's start off with the obvious here. Fights in the ring (and this is what they are proposing) are made by weight classes and I dare say there's not a rank amateur in the world, be it a weightlifter, wrestler, MMA participant, keyboard warrior, etc. that can step in a ring with ANY former multi-divisional world champion boxer and come close to standing a chance to beat them.

I must have misunderstood how this was being done, my bad.

If talking same weight then it's really obvious a pro boxer is whipping up on a non boxer.

I was talking about some guy on youtube running his mouth who might be too big and too strong for a little guy like Floyd. Yes they are out there.

Should have paid closer attention.

Even a 250 lb former Navy Seal wouldn't be able to land a punch on Floyd. This is boxing, not wrestling.

The whole thing is just vile. It's a shame, because Floyd really had a spectacular career, but he completely destroyed his legacy in the end game.
I can't hear / read his name and not shake my head in disgust.

That kind of thinking is the problem. Yes vs a little guy like himself he kicks ass on anyone. BUT.....some big strong x footballer who also plays other sports vs a little dude, this is a whole other situation. Thinking nobody far bigger and more powerful and actually a better athlete stands no chance at all, nay!!!!!

Keep in mind Floyd has the record he does vs little guys his size.

While in HS I once wrestled the valley champion at 127 pounds, I was at 225 at that time. Yes he could wrestle. but my size./power was too much for him. I was playing football at that time. Yep, a dare which became a bet.

Now the heavyweight would have tore me up.

Let's try this again:

It's BOXING, not wrestling.

I see a guy no bigger than Floyd standing in front of me I start swinging and hope something lands. Not going to even try to .......box. I am far biggr, far stonger and more athletic so will be using my advantages. Overwelm the little guy, which is my only chance, and to think something can't land is naive, sure it can. Floyd has never been hit by a guy weighing 275.

This deal about because he boxes he is beyond any danger simply isn't realistic.

Yes vs guys his size he totally dominates.

I’m actually thinking of placing a bet on Floyd winning by ko or tko in the first 4 rounds. Paul is just an amateur and not even a real pro combat fighter like McGregor was so I think Floyd will just overwhelm him with hand speed and beat him in to a bloody mess.
