I am not going to but some could say Floyd was in no frame of mind to cope with the presure of ''decent america'' counting on him winning whilst being torn between hoping they give a fellow black man a break. the false beard and the rematch clause he had to go through with...

A quality win. Good champions are expected to have quality wins. Jack sharkey had great wins like this, he still lost to carnera.
