    Yes he went after Conor in the late rounds. He didn't come out guns blazing like he said.

    3.5/10 bump

    There is a certain absurdity in the fact that Mayweather is getting more credit in many circles for walking down (in a somewhat lazy and unrefined fashion) a guy with no pro boxing experience and stopping him than he did when he soundly outboxed guys like Canelo and Pacquiao. It really shows how little understanding and appreciation many people have for a sport that was rather clearly the pre-eminent individual sport of the 21st century.

    It's difficult for me as a Conor fan to accept him backpedaling and desperately trying to slap off the advances of a significantly smaller, supposedly much weaker and lighter hitting man like that. A fine reference to the infamous chase scene from Birth of a Nation, but not what you'd expect from an Irish gorilla going up against "the biggest bitch in boxing."

    Like I said before, Conor can recover from the concussion but recovering from the indignity of looking so feeble and beta in comparison to a guy not respected by the general population for being a tough guy is something he may never psychologically recover from.

    Honestly I don't think it was accurate at all. In recent years the only fighter Floyd has "run" from is Pacquiao, that's it. And Pacquiao is a freakish offensive force with more speed and power than Floyd, so it wasn't hugely surprising that Floyd was extremely cautious and defensive, and moved a lot against Manny.

    Everyone else? He stood in the pocket and countered, or if he felt not much threat, walked them down. He stood right in front of Canelo, slipped and countered him into bolivian, and even walked Mosley down. Mosley and Canelo both hit much harder than PillowFists McGregor, and given they're both experienced, elite boxers, obviously pose a much greater threat than 0-0 PillowFists McGregor.

    It was obvious Conor posed no real threat in a boxing ring Floyd would do whatever he wanted with Conor, and my guess was that yeah, he would just walk him down and stop him whenever he wanted.
