Floyd on the other hand is by far the better pure boxer but he may lack the experience to deal with such a great opponent. How would he do when none of his pot shots from range hurt Chavez and the Mexican kept coming forward, eventually landing a few of those power shots. Could Floyd's chin take it? I think just about. Floyd squeaks through with a very very tight decision.
weather floyd pot shotting hurts chavez is irrelevant the point is he would be landing them and scoring points and winning rounds.
I think Floyds better defence and better accuracy see him win a UD by about 2-3 points clear over Chavez but it would by no means be an easy night.
