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.
Yet Oscar still got outlanded...and outworked..
Floyd also buckled him with counter rights off the ropes....
