    Floyd was still in top shape physically. Hell, you call Floyd SHOT for his fight w/ Pac. I don't think you know how to judge floyd. You're too invested in to him. Besides, in case you don't understand, I was talking about Canelo in this matter.

    Margo was a cheating bum who wouldn't have won a round against PBF, he's irrelevant. He was unskilled and unworthy.

    Canelo was the champ at JMW undefeated and a top 10 ranked P4P boxer, he was worthy. This is pro boxing a great am career doesn't always guarantee success at the pro level. Canelo had 40 pro fights he was thrown in the deep end and forced to swim and was made better because of it. Canelo was very polished you could see his pedigree at 23 and before. With that said I'd rather be 23 and Canelo than 35 and PBF going into that fight. The fight was supposed to be a passing of the torch fight and usually the younger champ beats the old champ here, just like in Loma-Lopez when an even younger Teo beat Loma.

    He was shot against Pac he looked worse than ever there. He was faded against Canelo no where close to his best in that fight, he's just a bad stylistic match up for Canelo. If PBF could come back today prime and was the same size as Canelo he would beat him again at 168.

    :lol: You couldn't be consistent if your life depended on it FFS.

    *Yawn* undefeated and top 10 P4P because he beat Austin Trout...you and your P4P crap. You really think P4P means jack??
    He was thrown in because it would be a big moneymaker, not because anyone thought it would be close or competitive. Floyd v Canelo was just a money fight set up for Floyd. Nothing more.

    :lol: Floyd was shot versus Pac.. what a joke. You don't know the difference between passed prime and shot obviously.

    He was shot and retired shortly after it. If he wasn't he wouldn't have retired when he did.

    You have no real or genuine clue what a shot boxer looks like. Floyd didn't retire because he was shot. You just invent stuff in your head that fits what you want. If Floyd was actually shot, he'd get whooped.

    He was shot to anyone who knows what PBF looked like when he wasn't. Just because he didn't look like Oscar in his last fight getting stopped, doesn't mean a guy isn't shot and knows his time is up. Most guys don't and they end up like RJJ.

    I get what you're saying but i dont think shot is the right word. Shot fighters arent the #1 p4p boxer on the planet which Floyd was at the time.

    Just because he was past his prime does not mean he was shot. Floyd was shot against Logan Paul, not against Pacquiao

    History will not be kind to this win. Look in the comments on youtube, people are calling it for what it is. No doubt floyd is a good businessman. He beat a 20% canelo.

    Most of the comments are praising Mayweathers defense and saying he schooled Canelo. Not sure what you're looking at

    He was done and knew his time was up if he didn't he would have continued and made more money. He was no longer PBF he was a shell of himself. He couldn't do what he used to do.

    No **** sherlock... yet, this doesn't mean SHOT. Just admit it, you don't know the difference between shot and passed prime at all.
