Guaranteed pay day per minute: Floyd -- $3,571,429 & Conor -- $1,071,429
It was a much, much better fight than I anticipated. Connor forced Mayweather to come forward and initiate the action. I feel like Mayweather definitely had the upper hand after the 5th round, but I also feel like the stoppage came too early and is just going to cause controversy. Mayweather would not have knocked him out in round 10, but he would have dominated 11 and 12 and possibly tko'd him in one of those last rounds. Connor caught Mayweather flush atleast 3 times, if it had been MMA using MMA gloves against a lesser opponent, any one of those 3 would have knocked out the other fighter. Being 8 ounce boxing gloves and Mayweather having a chin of steel, it barely caused a reaction.
You called it.
Umm... Rocky 4?? The Russians vs Rocky??
IT CAN HAPPEN!
A bit surprised by how long it took... not even a bit by the outcome.
I mean... how old is Mayweather..?
All those poor souls that had to pay $100 to watch it, or pay-out at a bar (whether food, drink, door fee whatever) ................ and we watched it in the break room, on facebook, for free....
I thought i had to stream it fight didnt even start til after 11pm eastern time plenty time to get B-dubz. Cant believe they charge a $20 cover charge tho smh ended up sitting across the street with a crowd watching the fight lol
Uh... Conor "forced" Mayweather toc ome forward? That's what Mayweather said he'd do the whole time. Meanwhile Conor said he'd be the one pressing... and wasn't.
Stoppage came too early? The guy's hands were down- hadn't thrown a punch in a minute and there was still a lot of time in the round. He was going to be murdered.
In boxing- if you don't throw punches, while getting punched, and can't protect yourself- the fight gets called. He was going to be KO'd. Ref just saved him the concussions.
"Mayweather would not have knocked him out in round 10"... what fight were you watching? His legs were spaghetti. He was going.
"Caught him flush 3 times... had it been..." No. Just.... no. hahaha
Conor has only 1 legitimate KO by punch in MMA....when Aldo ran directly into his fist. no way his weak hands are KO'ing a boxer.
Also- I believe Conor wanted the ref to stop it. He won't admit that, but you know if you don't throw punches while getting drilled and look to be going down... ref is going to call it.
I think he wanted that rather than actually getting KO'd. He claims he'd rather go out by KO.... i doubt it.
