    Just re-watched the fight a couple days ago

    All I hear is "If Mosley was in his prime or if he stayed on him, he would have finished Floyd". Nothing more than wishful "what-if" banter from Mayweather antagonists.

    Shane didn't exactly gas out until a couple rounds later. He was very fresh and spry in the early rounds. Add to the fact that Floyd had a solid chin, strong lower body, and balance unmatched by any other active fighter aside from Hopkins and Ward. Most other fighters would have gone down from that shot.
    People who say that just don't understand boxing. It boggled my mind when I heard (and still do hear) people talking about it like Mosley could have easily finished Floyd if he wasn't old, or he just "lost focus" and magically took his foot off the gas. A lot of boxing fans only understand boxing in it's simplest terms, ie "guy punch guy, guy knock out guy, ect". Anybody who has any real understand of boxing knows that Floyd got hurt and instantly made the necessary adjustments.


    1:22 -Seems like he's going to the body as a decoy, Floyd dressed down in defence.
    1:16 So Shane loops a bomb over hand, Floyd knees buckle like a MF! Most would have fallen.

    Floyd tries to grab, had no c strength to, so he backs to the ropes as Shane throws 2 rights that miss the mark. Then to the body.

    This shot and the one earlier in the round shows/proves why Floyd has never been dropped. Just a standing 8 count when his glove scraped the canvas.


    Floyd shook it off. IMO Shane's body language was "well...that was my best"

    Would have been a great fight if Shane was still in his prime

    'real' boxing fans seem like the snobbiest sports fans

    im not saying they are wrong, but they talk down on casuals more than other groups of sports fans

    A younger Shane may very well have been able to finish the job. Hell I was rooting for him to win.

    But you have to give Floyd some credit for making adjustments and not allowing Shane to connect that way for the rest of the fight.

    The guy was just a master at controlling distance.

    When Floyd fought Mosley people didn’t expect him to take him on. The universal opinion was that Floyd was scared. Even tho Floyd himself had been calling out Shane for years. Including Shane saying “my tooth hurts I gotta spend time with family” after his 2006 rematch with Fernando Vargas. Most of Floyd not fighting Shane at an earlier time was in Shane.

    Prime shane would have still got his ass beat, lets not forget prime ssm got demolished by a nikka with Mayorga problems

    Shane had a heart deficiency once Floyd stood tall to his best shots and Floyd sat down on his shots for once in retaliation not caring about his hands, Shane melted and lost all hope early.......If Shane was shot Mayweather shot him, Mayweather gave that boy the ass whooping of his life, everything he threw had murderous intentions; top 3 floyd performance
