Default Re: How come nobody talk about old semi shot Oscar taking Floyd to SD?

It may not have been a real SD, but it was competitive. A faded Hoya did a better job of parrying a prime Mayweather's shots than probably any other opponent. A lot of Mayweather's attempts to pot shot from the outside just didn't land like they usually do. While Hoya's flurries were mostly blocked or rolled, he landed enough to take some rounds due to Mayweather's low workrate, especially in the first half of the fight. Mayweather took over in the last half of the fight, but even then he never dominated Hoya or looked as comfortable as he usually does.
