Re: SE Boxing Thread (not waiting for PBF v. Pac II)

Mayweather wasn’t in any trouble. But He did look slower and his punches didn’t have much zip. Couldn’t really touch up Paul due to his size even though he was gassed and didn’t keep his gloves up after the 2nd round. I wouldn’t compare it to mcgregor, since Floyd wasn’t in top shape, and he was fighting a bigger man. 4 years in your 40s has a lot of impact on your physical condition and speed.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (not waiting for PBF v. Pac II)

Seems that was the best result for both. I'm no expert but didn't seemed rigged like the Askew fight.

Floyd was possibly holding back, but Logan seemed to take some pretty big hits so fair play to him.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (not waiting for PBF v. Pac II)

rigged is trending. did seem like woodley held back. i thought he had a lot of opportunities to jump on him when Paul was hurt. and just make it rougher fight. as it stands, i agree that Paul won on points.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (not waiting for PBF v. Pac II)

youtube for me...and yeah when woodley first tagged him it was exciting, but repeatedly let him off the hook. basic skills and not much action.

Yea Floyd clearly didn't care about it, unlikely that he even trained, just collected a paycheck.

I don't think any of these has been rigged and it seems pretty obvious to me that this is the case. Like gun to my head from some genie or god that appeared, I'd lay 10-1 or more on any of these not being rigged.

Valdez violates WBC clean boxing program, WBC ignores this and defends him. Haha, what a joke.

Usyk did more in Rd2 but it was a pretty meh round overall. AJ came alive a little more and Usyk may not be able to keep this up for 12.

Usyk in firm control, AJ starting to clinch more and search for a jab that isn't there.

AJ wakes up finally. Seems like he's decided Usyk isn't/can't hurt him (not sure how true that is) or that Usyk is slowing. Landed more there than he had all fight previous
