Thanks! I agree, Floyd's probably going to take his best few weapons away early, unless he's really missed a step. But maybe the curse of Canelo is more powerful than we realized! DUN DUN DUN
Good point Bogo as always. I still think the southpaw left to the body will work dividends on an aging Mayweather and will leave openings to the head later but Mayweather's conditioning has yet to fail him.
