It was an all-Patterson crowd, and we'd come to see the Floyd express roll on.

Maxim was dull-as-dishwater and, God knows, predictable, but he screwed-up Floyd's rhythm and beat him to the punch and tattooed him all night with double and triple jabs. Floyd's flurries were eye-catching, but, up close, not damaging, and he wasn't busy enough.

He got out-smarted by a veteran.

I have seen the tape of this fight several times and this is also my judgement.
