Had Floyd only been imbalanced because of feet issues, would he have gone down? Most likely not.
He went down because, on top of southpaw/orthodox contact, he also received a final blow that ultimately led to the unofficial KD.
Simple mistake by the ref. who must have missed Zab's short hook and noticed the awkwardness of their stance first. He was not at the right angle and called it a slip.
