    No he did not. He got caught with a good punch from a hard puncher but he wasn't saved by a bell. He was caught in a worse situation by Mosley in the second round. If Floyd had been caught by the same punch by Maidana 15 seconds into the round he'd have been ok by the two minute mark.

    He certainly got a gift in their first fight.

    I have been to Floyds gym and the sparring really forces you to have either a good defence or a good chin to survive Floyd has both

    No because Maidana threw the punch after the bell rang. Besides he was in a worse situation with Mosley and still won

    He got caught quite a lot in that match up his defense wasn`t brilliant, the shouldder roll is not an effective defense.

    His legs were gone, one more shot like that and he would have been out cold.

    No

    Wobbled yes, seriously hurt no. You only have to look at Floyd's face after the punch landed to see he was still relaxed and lucid

    He was covering up the fact that he was hurt.

    No not saved but he was clearly affected by the punch.
