Default interesting diferences in size and weight in maidana floyd 1 and 2

just listened to ariza interviews with fight hype and about the differences in training and outcome in both fights are kind of interesting. In the first one they had maidana come in bigger to overpower and wear floyd out, while he did have success this way he did defintely tire and it allowed floyd to have his best success in the late rounds. In the second fight he came in lighter with a more pateint attack and while floyd won most rounds maidana did probably land the more clean an powerful punches compared to the first fight, especially his shot at the end of round three which was a skillful hurtful shot. floyd was also more actice and made it harder to engage in the second fight, and he didnt really have the level of succes he had late in first fight. Do people think the extra weight lost and more attention to technique be a benefit to maidana in other fights or will t hinder him?

the biggest difference was the ref, not the weights. floyd ran and held excessively as his main defense and got away with it all night. Without the holding he would have had a rough fight and could have been in deep trouble since maidana boxed with him quite well at times. but we'll never know cos bayless was protecting floyd and made it horrible to watch.

yeah thats another factor, i think he might have done better too than the first fight, people assume extra weight is always a massive advantage

Floyd and Maidana are both the same size. Floyd just weight less because he has a baby dick and no balls. If it was really true that Black guys are huge Floyd would be 160+ on fight night like Maidana.

Still relying on that one punch? but refused to see floyd hurt him badly with that monstorous body punch, that had him in serious trouble? one, must be even handed fool!!

if floyd ran then give him credit for the first fight, he did as he said and stood and fought. In the 2nd he 'ran' and won way easier, give him props for doing what he said in the first fight??
