    This vid shows a list of Floyd`s easiest opponents and Conor was placed on the list despite starting well before quickly gassing, should Conor be on this list?

    No surprise there and I wouldn't consider it even thread worthy.
    Floyd hadn't fought for couple years but at the end of the day he was still a 50-0 fighting a novice 0-0 boxer with no amateur experience.
    The fight should be remembered as 1 of the biggest mismatches in boxing history and not as any kind victory for boxing,in the silly boxing v mma debate as I have seen some try to surmise.
    The fight imo would have had more legitimacy if they had been using MMA gloves, at the very least used 10oz gloves but Floyd has for the last part of his career been very careful who he fights and when he fights them and there was no surprise he made sure to stack the deck as much as possible to limit any possibility of losing his unbeaten record.

    EXACTLY.

    Floyd did nothing in the first half of the fight and let Conor win rds it was so obvious to anyone who is a hardcore boxing fan. I find it hilarious that some people genuinely think Conor was winning and Floyd was actually trying but that Conor was just too good a boxer in the first 5 rds or so. How naive are some people.
