Default Re: What makes you ****? A 12 round boxing masterclass or a straight blowout?

Definitely mate

There are differing views on "masterclass" though.

Calzaghe dominated Lacy and put on a masterclass of skills, footwork, technique etc. By the end he was just laughing in his face and unloading at will, it was amazing to watch.

Bellew against McKenzie 2 wasn't a master class. I think Tony boxed clever and did the right thing but it wasn't exciting to view. Similarly you could say Wlad put on a bit of a masterclass against Haye but I was bored stiff and he was never in any danger of actually exciting anyone throughout the whole fight despite being dominant.
