Default Floyd vs. Corrales...Floyd Sr. called when Diego was going to be ready to go

I forgot about that...

Sr. was in the crowd and yelled to Floyd that Diego would be ready to go by the 7th...8th, 9th. He said this after the 2nd.

Time 6:50

And this is what happened in the 7th

Time 1:52

Also notice, if you watch the fight again...for all those that like to joke about Roger's instructions...Roger gives specific advice in this fight on what to do instead of the "Break this MFer down, etc."

Floyd was younger then so maybe he needed more instructions.

of course Diego didn't get finished off until the 10th but maybe if Floyd picked it up more he could have done it in the 9th.
He probably waited until the 10th out of spite or someone put a bet on the 10th

Roger said it would be round 10 after about 2 rounds. I remember him saying that in the corner. Roger>Joy Sr. in everything.
