    No, there's only ONE type of domination. There's nothing remotely competitive about a domination.

    Why would Canelo drain back down to 152? Their bout was like two ships passing in the night...Floyd was up very high, Canelo down very low.

    Would you say Douglas dominated Tyson? If you say yes - then you've contradicted yourself.

    Corrales vs mayweather.

    "domination" is not hard enough to describe what mayweather did to corrales.

    I don't throw around the term "dominated" all willy nilly. You got different levels of a domination. No, a Domination means a landslide, a totally one-sided fight. If you want to exaggerate a fight and call something a domination that wasn't really a domination, that's one thing but don't tell me there's two types of dominations. That's BS.

    We can debate whether certain fights were dominations or not, but there's nothing competitive about a domination. I mean people have the gall to call Mayweather beating Canelo a "domination" lmao. Because Mayweather had a good round 7? Having a good round doesn't make a fight a domination. A domination isn't struggling for the first 6 rounds then needing Daddy's help in the corner to make adjustments mid-way through to barely eek out a decision. For it to be a domination you have to dominate every minute of every round and it can't be even remotely close. That's what a dominaton is. Nothing less than that.

    We can't let fans get away with BSing themselves anymore. A domination is exactly what you know it as. Complete and utter one-sidedness that isn't even remotely close. None of this well it was sort of a domination BS. None of this well there was one round that kinda sorta looked like a domination so the whole fight was garbage.

    Fair enough. I agree with your point. But you still haven't answered my question. Do you think Douglas dominated Tyson?

    That was no domination. A domination is Calzaghe-Lacy or PBF-Chico.

    Not a domination. Every fight that ends in a TKO is not necessarily a domination.
