It's also very important to consider the manner in which he wins. That is, Floyd typically wins 10 of 12 rounds.
I can't think of a fighter who so easily disposed of nearly every opponent he's ever faced. Not all, obviously, but about 35 of his 43 fights (and probably more like 37-3
were unbelievably one sided. Utter dominance. Can't do nothing but pull up a chair and enjoy the ride.
I for one will def. miss Floyd when he hangs 'em up. I'm just glad we have at least one more fight to look forward to
