    I don't think you understood the point I was trying to make. Joe Schlub is not Khabib (an athletic peer of Floyd's with world fame and a lot on the line). If he fought Floyd under the same disadvantages, then yes he would be brave too. Comparing those athletes to Joe Schlub big mouth anonymous, sitting behind his computer, talking shit about "yeh I'd fight Floyd for 30 million" as an excuse to denigrate Conner (or any other Athlete like Khabib) is apples to oranges. To say Conner or any other athlete like Khabib is NOT brave for going in there because I (anonymous non-athlete Joe Schlub) would do it too for 30million.

    That’s not true. Going night night is generally more damaging to the brain. Conor didn’t get too badly concussed against Floyd. He didn’t take much punishment in many rounds.

    You're an embarrassment and should probably stop watching and talking about combat sports. Floyd has 27 TKOs, Conor was not his only TKO, but his 27th.

    It's been said, but worth reiterating that any knockout loss is most likely going to cause brain injury... that's what happens when you're repeatedly struck in the head and it's why your body wants to go prone.

    This is unsurprising. Maybe it's a fact that many people take for granted, so I hope it's sobering to them. Still, it's a great example of ominous nomenclature being used to report the mundane.

    That’s a myth/fake news. Lots of informed people have said Floyd is not pillowfisted. Among his previous opponents who said said as much were manfredy, Moseley, and Maidana. Manfredy and Moseley said he had “good” power and Maidana said his power was “decent.” No one, including Floyd, has ever claimed he has one punch KO power. But the pillowfist label is absolute garbage.

    Tony Bellew even went as far as saying Mayweather would have the power advantage over Conor going into their match. I’m not sure I agree 100% with that but he supported his claim by referencing Rampage training in Liverpool against a pro boxer Tony Quigley. Rampage said Quigley was the hardest puncher he’d ever faced yet Quigley is known as a “talented boxer” but not, necessarily, a hard puncher.

    Toss all of that out the window and just go by what you see. All Mayweather fights followed the same basic pattern.
    Challenger saying “I’m gonna knock him out.”
    Fight starts and they come out aggressive, eat a couple of counters and then shell up the rest of the fight. If he had pillowfists, why the hesitation?

    Kenny Bayless criticized the fight the week beforehand and turned down the chance to referee.

    30 mln. What a laughable number? Add the PPV share money and you have 100 mln.

    I cannot stand Conor and loved Floyd beating him but no way did Floyd intend to take the shots he did in that fight. Conor surprised Floyds with his abilities. I mean they were still crap in comparison but I don't think everyone is being honest about this.

    The good doctor is failing to acknowledge the B- Level athlete part of the equation.
