Good cardio doesn't make your boxing skills any better
Floyd will have still walked him down and stopped him
Lies. Floyd didn't even begin to walk him down until he was tired. If he had Nate Diaz cardio, Floyd would have just outboxed him and been satisfied with a 12rnd unanimous decision.
Because he knew conor would get tired in 4 rounds and then he could do whatever he wanted
Thats my point. He knew he would get tired. Conor couldn't even raise his hands to defend himself at a point. If not for fatigue, it goes the full 12. Nate Diaz would go 12 vs Floyd.
Connor with good cardio is like saying if Floyd had grown up in MMA Connor would get his ass beat there too
Conor gassed because of the pressure Floyd put on him. Floyd broke him down
In that case Floyd's strategy would have been different, he would have thrown punches from the opening bell and Conor would have folded under an accumulation of punishment.
Undoubtedly, Floyd didn't hit Conor with anything of significance until Conor was too tired to keep his hands up.
If Conor weighed 250 pounds does anyone doubt he'd be a heavyweight?
But anyway to answer your question properly, he folded and had the fight beaten out of him by Floyd, he didnt gas for no reason. He went 12 rounds with Paulie no problem and actually finished stronger.
It goes for as long as Floyd wants it to go, but it always goes beyond 5 rounds.
If Floyd doesn't want to waste energy or get a scratch on his Pretty Boy Face (his original moniker) he'll shut them down and win a UD.
But that fact has nothing to do with him being unable to end a fight sooner.
Conor has good cardio. His gassing out has nothing to do with cardio. It has everything to do with his lack of mental fortitude when the going gets tough.
When Conor starts to realise that his #deathtouch2000 left hand isn't having the desired effect that it usually does on his chinless bum rushing MMA opponents that he's KO'd, he starts to panic. Then when he starts to get hit himself, he starts to panic more.
That's when he loses his head and his heart follows shortly after. It's not a cardio thing. It's a head and balls thing.
Deep down the nut huggers know that Paulie was right.
Not having success in a fight makes you tire faster. If you can't catch your opponent with any good punch and what you're doing isn't working, your brain is going to start working harder to try to figure out the puzzle and that requires a lot of energy. Being countered with clean punches to the body and face also takes energy out of you. Conor's cardio would be fine if he was having success. What killed his tank was the lack of efficiency.
this "if he had bla bla" works for almost every1. if conor had great cardio (cain/gsp), then floyd would change his gameplan/whatever. floyd didnt even box him
he'll need more than cardio. He needs heart.
That's a BIG "if".
I think Mayweather finishes him anyway.
Better cardio does not suddenly make you become a great boxer
His lack of skills and experience made him lose
Not his cardio
Floyd would adjust and maybe finish him faster.
