I think Mosley would be too rough for Pernell at any of those weights. Sweet P would need more than his usual slip and slide to pull it out, he'd have to get physical too. And I don't see him with the physical strength to beat Mosley. I don't see Mosley beating him up either. It's a fight Pernell would lose by getting out worked. He'd land more of the clean punches, they just wouldn't hurt Mosley at all, and wouldn't be enough to win rounds. Bad Style matchup for Whitaker in my opinion. Mosley is just too diesel.

This is not to say Whitaker can't beat guys as strong as Mosley, he has (Julio Cesar Vazquez). They just didn't have the same total package going on for them. He never beat a strong fighter who was also lightning fast.

You hit it right on the head. Pernell would hit cleaner, Mosley would swamp him with strength and punch output.
