just felt like re-watching one of my favorite floyd performances. i've posted it several times on this site. This is basically NEO from the MATRIX.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8R3z91fxEcI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8R3z91fxEcI</a>

Most brutal non-KO beatdown i've ever seen..

Floyd's patience is absolutely astonishing. This is such an incredible performance IMHO. Next level shit. Also a key thing to note: they mention he's wearing gloves considered to be "pillows" to protect his hands. Floyd rarely wore "dangerous gloves" like most fighter's do, he always went for the safer/extra padding gloves @ 147 & up. Another thing to consider..

That performance against Gatti is a damn "masterpiece". The speed is on another level. The counters are on another level. The patience is on another level. The relaxed, non-wasted movement is on another level.

Mindblowing...... IMHO.

lol at the entrance of floyd. Also back then they used to show the judges faces but now they don't.
omg the first round the ref drama, floyd just took advantage, gatti should have defended himself instead look at the ref like ortiz did.
damn the speed and the counters of floyd. Floyd hands are so fast he can punch widthraw and come back with the punch again and do multiple times.
by round 4 gatti is already frustrated and has lost hopes of winning during the round. damn the finish blows to the body.

Do you think floyd lost to castillo in the first fight. one thing floyd does too annoy his opponents in the ring is either use elbow or holding or any tactics repeatedly.

i'll have to rewatch that fight.. I remember it was extremely close. That's his most controversial fight IIRC.

maybe i'll do that later :D

I just watched the fight. So much went on. Point deduction but castillo was the boxer aggressor and that was effective. But I think mayweather was on a learning curve.

I felt castillo won this fight too, 7-5 if not 8-4 which wouldn't be a stretch, he won most of the last few rounds.

OMG how did the judges have it so far ahead for mayweather.
