    I been binge watching younger Floyd fights these past couple nights..the Corrales fight, the Gerena fight, the Augustus fight..Pretty Boy Floyd>Money Mayweather as far as crowd appeasing fights..he used to go in there going for the KO..I can see why he became a more defensive fighter tho because if he kept that old style going up in weight he had way more of a chance of getting KOed

    His Gatti fight is still my favorite performance from a boxer ever next to James Toney vs Iran Barkley..I remember ordering that Gatti fight & watching it live & being :picard: at how often he was landing..IIRC Ricky Hatton was ringside

    I wish that Prince Naseem-Floyd fight happened in the 90's just off the strength of their personalities :russ:

    Throwing 15 shots on the ropes and not land one impactful shot demoralizes a fighter; besides Manny was smart Floyd was playing possum trying to bait Manny to throw random shots so he could drop a hammer ala JMM, at times Floyd even walked towards Manny with his hands all the way down trying to lure him into swinging away

    Just because you are caught clean doesnt mean youre hurt; plus he was able to guard intelligently, those reactions were a little bit of nerves and playing possum; now Chino hurt the shyt out of Floyd in both fights and had him worried in there, fight 2 where Floyd got checked after the bell; he was definitely hurt there

    Im not talking about just being caught clean though. We've all seen may hurt before. Chop chop, zab, mosley... He puts his back against the ropes and covers up... Til he recovers. Like he did against Pac.

    It was 2007 with the DLH and Hatton fights in which he went from PBF to Money.

    The Gatti fight was like watching someone slowly dissect a butterfly by ripping its wings out. My god that was just a one-sided beating.

    I really liked the Jesus Chavez fight in 2001, he just uppercut Chavez silly. Chavez's aggression and activity made the fight seem more competitive than it really was, but Chavez was slowly taking a terrible beating with the number of clean hard shots he was taking.
