Not his fault. He is that much better than everyone else...

And before anyone mentions Manny P, note that MP loses fights. PBF loses ROUNDS!

big shot Marcos caught him with at the end of round 3.

Floyd's momentum was partially used against him, but he didn't even stagger

dat chin

the only two physical attributes he lacks are obvious ko power, and his facial features don't seem hard to bust up (not a liability since he's hard to hit clean in the face)

I think that he will go down as a great boxer who was gun shy. That non-fight with Pacquiao at Pacman's prime will be a the biggest knock against him and be emblematic of his attitude, as he continually shows in the last round of every fight. He is content to cruise to a victory, and doesn't ever try to put an exclamation mark on it.

The reason that Pacquiao ate it is because he had too much of that. We can only wish a bit more of that on PBF.

I am convinced that he could knock guys out. But that so I would also open him up more, since he would need to string more aggressive combinations together, since he is not a big puncher. So, he will probably never do it. At this point, no one thinks that he will KO anyone. People are more interested in seeing if anyone can knock him out of his track shoes.

manny getting ko'd by JUAN was similar with some differences.

manny is a habitual lunger and propelled himself directly into a compact dynamite right

Floyd was known for having relatively fragile hands throughout his career. as a fan I was happy to see his hands didn't get injured last night despite ripping Marcos with 3 punch combos to the body someitmes

Yeah, Manny was overly aggressive, a counterpoint to Mayweather's extreme caution.

I admire Floyd's skills, but would much rather watch a Cotto fight.

Part of this is just my personal inclinations. Though clearly not in the same planet in terms of skills, part of why I stopped was my inclination to trade in the pocket, and to be a front foot heavy puncher.
