    Hmmmm, let's see.  Floyd Mayweather weighs about 147 lbs.  Deontay Wilder weighs around 225 lbs. About 80 lbs difference.  What do you think.

    There is an old adage in boxing that a good big man will always beat a good little man. Floyd Mayweather would have absolutely NO CHANCE of making it out of the 2nd round let alone winning

    Floyd mayweather is way more technical. But put him in the ring with wilder there is no chance he’s going the distance without being caught flush with one of wilders right hand. Mayweather don’t have the neck muscles to withstand it. Wilder would just over power him with his physical advantage. Mayweather would need a lottery punch to defeat him.

    This is the reason I don’t believe in pound for pound. You put a welterweight in with a heavyweight, 9 times out of ten the heavyweight is gonna win. Just by the sheer  gulf in strength and physicality.

    Even the shots to Floyd's shoulders, his main defensive tactic, could knock him down & maybe even break it for a TKO. Not only Wilder, many many Heavyweights can really do damage to such a small guy. One punch is all it would really take. We're not talkin the One of a kind, Roberto Duran here. He ko'd a full grown stallion when he was 135lbs!

    Well, Deontay Wilder Got Exposed for Facing a Real Boxer Twice By The Same Person. 

    His Name is Tyson Fury for Real.

    I'm not Saying Floyd Mayweather would beat Him because It's very Foolish to face The Heavyweight.  If, Floyd Mayweather do The same that, He always done in his entire Career.
