Boxing has evolved when it comes to game plans and strategies but its debatable when we talking about talent.. Back in those days it was a immensely bigger sport than it is today, much more people would attend to boxing, and with that in mind more talenst were likely to come out... So a guy with 4% loss and over 200 vicotories was sure a hell of a fighter..

I'd pick Pep by decision, Floyd would have to fight an ugly rough fight using his phisicality, wich I doubt would happen

I agree in some ways here, but they still had the strategic game plans back then too. After a guy like Basilio, LaMotta, or Marciano were established, very few tried to brawl with them. Just like very few tried to stand there and trade punches with Foreman or Shavers.

It's just emphasized more and easier to see with the high definition and slow motion.

I'd take Floyd.
Bill did you seriously just say he'd be too fast for Mayweather and too elusive?

They had strategic game plans yes, but boxing in general was not the same sport it is today. Just like Shane said, the sport has evolved.

Will'O Wisp was damm elusive...Hes regarded as the best defensive of all time..guess

Bill, once the sport has a bigger history today than it had those days, we can say we've seen more than they had, so its natural that gameplans and strategies are more evolved.. Looking at other sports its easy to notice, football, us footbal, rugby, volleyball.

Pep isn't regarded by most historians as best defencive fighter of all time for nothing. He won a round without throwing a punching and just making the other guy look like a fool missing.

There's my point. He couldn't do that these days. That would NEVER happen. Times change. Boxing has changed.

He might not win the round, but he could definately do that to some of the fighters. Change isn't always for the better in boxing. The main change for the better is the mob isn't involved in fixing fights, but the game it's self is still just as corrupt.

Mayweathers skills as a boxer are to slick his defence is unbelievable and as he proved against mosley he can take the punches from a hard hitting welterweight.
A fight between pep and mayweather at superfeather weight would be an other Mayweather masterclass.

Mosley hardly hit him, and is barely comparable to Pep.
