If the fighters' respective technical advantages were measured in terms of a horse race, Mayweather would win by several lengths. Floyd appears to have a control mechanism for each challenge he's met with. He controls the pace, avoids mistakes, confounds his opponent with stellar defense and stays ready to strike at the right moment. Against Miguel Cotto, for example, Mayweather simply won the rounds he needed to. Guerrero is more skilled than his recent brawls suggest, but Mayweather operates at a level above all others.

Advantage: Mayweather
