wonderful question that is real hard to answer. I personally would say yes as mayweathers never really been tested and hearns was a a true great who
engaged in many classic battles. I think that his reach and power would be something mayweathers never had to deal with and he wouldnt be able to
handle it. but on the other hand there is no way mayweather would ever take a fight with such risk
Any primetime boxer from the 60's to the late 80's would beat any fighter of this generation just because in the golden years of boxing, boxers
prepare themselves harder, where more technical. more physical, and had nothing else going for them but just to box. The boxers nowadays dont train
half as hard as boxer from past years.
I think it's a pretty tough question to answer. Hearns had tremendous power for his size. It would only take one good land and Mayweather would be in
trouble. Mayweather is quick like a mongoose though.
All in all, I'd probably put my money on Hearns in his prime.
Edit to add: I bet you Paquiao would knock out Mayweather right now. Paquiao could go down as the best pound for pound ever.
