Floyd is just a master of his craft. You only have to look at the fighters he has made look amateur, the same fighters who then go and give other fighters tough fights. He is just on another level and it is a joy to watch him work.
We are very lucky.
He sold Ricky that check left hook all fight, he planted the seed a few times in that very same corner Ricky headbutted later on. Once it was the right time, he committed and pulled it of superbly. OK Ricky is one of the most one dimensional fighters, and like a dog chasing a treat, but you could see Floyd lining up that specific shot all fight.
The pull counter is a thing to cherish, after Mosley gave Mayweather trouble, he adjusted and completely dominated Shane, his best punch was gone, it never connected in that way again. Bless Shane, he was more than likely mentally scarred after that fight. It was a masterclass.
