6 Reasons Jail Time Will Have Zero Effect on Floyd Mayweather's Title Defenses

Floyd Mayweather's prison ordeal will not have a long-term impact on his boxing talent.

There will come a day that Floyd Mayweather will not be the dominant figure in boxing.

He will not be the best in the world, and he won't be able to rule the ring every time he steps in it.

Time catches up with all boxers, and there will come a point that an up-and-coming fighter will have better reactions and beat him to the punch consistently.

Mayweather is such a sharp student of the game that he is likely to know when this day comes before he has to step in the ring with an opponent who can punish him.

He'll likely learn that fate when he is in the ring hammering out yet another win. He will see an opening and he will deliver a punch. It will miss its mark or it won't have the power that Mayweather knows it should have.

He will realize that he's not the same man.

But he's not at that point yet, and just because he finished a stint in jail doesn't mean that he has lost his ability. He will have the time and inclination to regain his top form before he steps into the ring again.

He has a number of attributes that will allow the 35-year-old WBC Welterweight and WBA Super Lightweight championship that will allow him to win consistently.
