Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach feels that Floyd Mayweather (49-0) could have beaten Gennady Golovkin (34-0) had the pair met in the ring stating “Floyd would out-box him”.

Roach told FightHype “He’s [Mayweather] never been knocked out by a professional fighter yet, so what makes this guy [Golovkin] so different? I know he’s [Golovkin] a pretty good puncher, but I’m sure Floyd’s faced a lot of good punchers in his lifetime from the amateurs to the pros. Has he been down once? Not too many guys hurt him, so I would pick Floyd to win that fight”.
