just watched the fight again with my dad, because he's one of those people who think Conor/Floyd had an agreement not to hurt each other for the first 5 rounds - which is based off of nothing, just maybe his WWE watching.

anyway watching the fight a second time, it was still enjoyable. I've never "laughed" so much at a fight. I mean I cracked up when Conor countered Floyd, when Floyd would just casually tee off on Conor, when Conor did all kinds of crazy hammerfist stuff, when Conor hit Floyd with a good body shot & Floyd acted like he got hit to the nuts, when the ref pushed Floyd, when Conor cheap shotted Floyd after the low blow warning, and when Floyd was just walking Conor down at the end trying to end his life.

lots of laughing.. because it really was a circus, but a very enjoyable one.

I think it was round 8 where Conor dug deep and got off some great shots on Floyd. Here he was, completely dead, and he pulled some great combos/shots off and was effective. To me that is so impressive considering the state he was in.

Maybe the most impressive thing when re-watching it though, is how relaxed Floyd is. I mean it was apparent watching it live, but it's even more impressive watching it again. Floyd is just so relaxed, focused, powerful, fast, patient, etc. At no point in that fight did I see him look tired, worried, impatient, etc. That experience, composure, skill is the biggest take home point people should have from this event.

Also, Floyd basically taught alot of MMA fans about boxing punching vs MMA punching .. MMA punchers try and learn to improve their boxing etc, but even a guy with some of the best striking in MMA didn't look anywhere near as fluid/clean/powerful/relaxed/fast as Floyd, IMHO. I mean it's pretty evident from the footage. Conor landed some good shots but Floyd's shots had real sting, even if he was barely putting anything behind them. Some of Floyd's shots toward the end were just so clean and effortless, yet just cracked Conor so hard. Floyd's probably thrown 10 million more punches than Conor...

Also, Conor was wrecked at the end. LOL at people who thought he was fine. He was completely toast. When you see an early stop where the guy is fine, he gets the ref off of him real quick. Conor laid on those ropes with the ref for like 60 seconds. Smart move by him making people believe he was getting ready for his second wind for rounds 11/12 lmfao. People already talking about "would Conor win in a rematch?!!?" LFMAO.

Finally, look at how much we talked about a "hybrid circus fight"... Definitely makes sense that this broke every record, just given our discussion on it.

Exactly about the last point. This ppv defines floyd as boxer. People love floyd and watch his fights but alot of people hate him and therefore tune into see someone hopefully defeat him as for this ppv it was soo bad it was actually gaining attention regardless if it was bad or not just the fact that the people were talking about like in this thread, we talked about how bad this fight was, what each said what ridiculous statement each made. So ye it makes sense how it broke records and I understand now based on your other reply that this is actually good for boxing because you are getting more viewers. A big problem in a lot of sports is when they involve politics and make it more business than entertaining the fans.

I have to disagree with the above statement. If you remember the image I posted, which I will post below. but ofc it wasn't intentionally but it definitely looks half on the belt and half below.



But it is entertaining to watch, would have loved to see the floyd of old add more slickness and accuracy. But without that it was still entertaining. But conor had good head movement making floyd miss, which ofc the floyd of old would have hit it. but ye.

OMG plz no rematch lol.

ya that is def a bit low .. Floyd probably tried to play it up a bit to recover, that was a good punch.

yeah please no rematch. I imagine there could be several rematches.. Conor is great at selling himself and could give people hope each time. Would be funny if they end up having like 5 fights, all billion+. Everyone paying because "ok this time he's got it". lmao.

As we know connor fatigued quite quick and because of that he was losing and lost in round and one of the main reasons he gassed out, which many boxers do, but can handle it better than mcgregor ofc cos they are boxers is floyd's precise body shots, even though the old mayweather would have done so much more body shots and those pot shots to the body, they look weak but do take effect.

last one in the vid is very effective, cause he was closer, it was a counter, and conor looked mushy/wasn't able to defend it at all really, solid shit.

one at 0:06 is similar. one at 0:26 is brutal but a little low. several low shots in the vid, hah.



how often do you see straight rights to the body like that in boxing? not very often.. Floyd also has a nasty lead right, again a rare punch in boxing.

this is a great video to see Floyd dissect a boxer with straight rights to the body:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fttZ4guzAaI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fttZ4guzAaI</a>

K/O body shot vs Mitchell is similar to the one that hits Conor, but in a way better spot.. similar to the one @ 00:06 in the Conor vid but more behind it.



man Floyd is such a sniper.
