    I agree, I just expect Mayweather to have it locked down.

    Joke of a fight, not going to bother. The other Paul though, might knock the hell out of Woodley lol.

    Paul is a legit athlete. Mayweather is old and little and has done nothing but slap and run for a decade. The only part that surprised me was Paul not gassing out after a few rounds. Him aggressively clinching ( while ugly) was the right move.

    If I was his head trainer I would have hired John Ruiz as an assistant trainer to teach Paul that mauling style that he employed when he was in too tight with Mayweather.

    While this fight was an exhibition there was little mercy from Mayweather as he tried to use forearms to the throat and punch off the break and was going for the knockout. I thought the fight would play out similar to the McGregor fight, but the size gap was too much for the huge skill difference between the two boxers.

    I remember there was a dormant poster who called Mayweather a weasel, I woud say that's a compliment and put down at the same time. Like the weasel Floyd is sly in his manipulation of the buying public, but he's also extremely cautious and shrewd in the ring.

    Where these carnival fights go from here is a mystery to me, the younger Paul is taking on another MMA fighter in Woodley but Woodley has a better boxing skill set than Askram and the size gap while close to a division isn't the 3 division gap we saw last night. I know this if the younger Paul wins he has multi fight deal and the weasel will probably fight him down the line. I suspect the fight will have to be real fight for the public to buy into carnival show and pay the weasel and the younger Paul the purses they would want.

    This is not a good look for boxing and indicative of clown world in general.

    Floyd seemed have a thinly veiled agitation at the result in the post-fight.

    Weasel always was insecure. For much of his real fights were in Los Vegas and he needed the same judges fight after fight to secure his "wins".
