Shakur is extremely arrogant talking back to his corner. Who does he think he is ?

    What's he talking about with Bradley? What was the switch?

    According to most boxing/mma fans, he's a successful 'alpha male' leader of society.
    So he knows who he is.
    And he'll be getting a statue near Wilder's one day.

    I’m disappointed by his performance and behavior. Honestly, I expected more from this young man and was wrong. He’s a bit of a punk. Not sure what he’s thinking but he’s getting bad advice. Hope he can straighten his head out and act like a professional.

    Shakur having a epic meltdown on X. He's going in on everyone and accusing numerous fighters and others who've been praising the heck out of him for years of being ''haters.''

    Bradley was and has been blowing industrial amounts of smoke up his ass for years not just during the broadcast

    He even went in on Algieri who, again, has been lavishing praise upon him for years.

    Tim sayings what I said. Shakur hasn’t learned the flow between offense and defense that top fighters need to master. You’ need to learn to be 3 steps ahead at all times. Everything you do has a purpose and reason why you’re doing it. You don’t let your opponent dictate when you employ your game plan. Avoid getting hit and wait for a safe opening,is not a game plan.

    Are y’all really surprised?

    this is the guy who said Loma was “ducking him” when Loma went back to Ukraine for the war…..

    He also said the fans “didn’t appreciate him” instead of admitting he was boring or underperformed and that he was retiring because of it after his last fight iirc…

    To top all that off, his style is basically that of a high level spoiler….

    I was on his side for a good while, but the "punk" in him manifests itself with more authority each outing. I would love to watch such as Abdullah Mason kick the **** out of him. Yeah I know I'm early on the Mason train, but hell, why not?

    His father too. There was a specific time Floyd sr was telling Floyd he wasn't listening and Floyd repeated everything back to him, then actually did what he said the next round.

    Floyd definitely listened to his corner.

    That was a bit questionable with Shakur, it wasn't Chris Colbert level (outright disrespect to his #2) but his corner's advice was actually the advice he needed and should've taken. He lost the narrative there a bit.

    If you told me two years ago, I would be rooting for tank to knock Stevenson out I would’ve said you were lying. He needs to be humbled.

    He is indeed a clown.
    It's not saying he's not a halfway decent boxer but the hype he receives doesn't reflect the reality of his skillset whatsoever, plus he always seems to have the house in his pocket too although that's hardly surprising. He brings in the big bucks but put him against a halfways decent puncher with somewhat fair scorecards and I think he wilts like a flower in the sun.
