I think 99% of people would instantly think that fighter b was actually, at some point, on the floor.

I think everyone understands that the term "floored" can mean stunned. However, if you start using that term in a sport where an opponent can literally be floored.........well, thats where the confusion comes in.
lol he needs to see sense. i mean, the word itself kinda gives it away, "floored" lol

This is stupid. There is a floor. The idea is to hit someone so hard, they hit that floor. When it happens, we say "he got floored". WTF is the michiganretard babblin about.

Just for your reference, here is the term "floored" being used in a boxing article:

Quote:
As a guide Floyd Mayweather showed just how to use tempo and pace to out-box Marquez in September last year, winning with a unanimous points decision. However despite his skill and speed it was telling that, although he floored Marquez early in the bout, Mayweather failed to finish him off and the fight went the distance.
If you recall correctly, JMM did actually touch the floor.

I think you are definitely using the word floored in the wrong way. Although I wouldn't know how Americans would apply it to describe something to be honest. I've never heard a boxing commentator use the word floored to describe someone being stunned.

Michigan

Michigan; to "pull a michigan"

1. To say something stupid.
2. To not admit fault.
3. To judge events without having ever seen them.

i.e. "i dont know enough about the pascal-pittman fight, i aint gonna pull a michigan"

seriously man, as a boxing fan, you have to know that in boxing, the term will always be used literally and never figuratively. if people used it both ways, then it would fail as a boxing term because you can never tell if being floored meant someone was knocked down or just stunned. every time someone says "floored" in boxing, you'd actually have to confirm "do you mean he was stunned or knocked down?".
