    I'm sure Manny's surgery was legit. A picture of him with a cast on :rofl, no x-ray photos though. Why can't those who picked pac just take the loss gracefully?

    What is schooling about clinching, headlocks, and elbows? Schooling is a term used in boxing when you "outbox" someone, none of those mores are legal boxing moves. That's like Pac constantly low blowing Floyd and claiming he "schooled" him.

    Would have much preferred if Floyd fought him like he did in his other fights, clean, pure out boxing. I did express my concerns pre-fight about Floyd possibly just running with his taller reach, then clinching when the shorter fighter gets up close. To me that's just exposing the ineptness of the refs, there's no way for the shorter fighter to win with these rules.

    But those angles doe? Those 10 punch combinations doe? That speed doe? That fast footwork doe?:lol:

    Sorry but it still amazes me at the jokers out there that thought Floyd wouldn't be able to deal with that. Like the King of adjustments wouldn't be able to adjust to that.

    Didn't a similar thing happen with Danny Williams / Mark Potter, when Williams literally couldn't lift his arm, but knocked out Potter with the left?

    Really.... ?

    True, I expected more form "The Fight of The Century" after spending $100. But after viewing the match, though, I knew instantly that one boxer came to fight. I also knew that another boxer showed up to implement the sporting version of a computer formula in the ring. If there's any doubt as to what transpired on May 2, 2015, just read how many times the word "clinch" is found in SB Nation's "Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight: Live round by round results blog":

    Manny backs him to the corner and might have landed a left before they clinch.
    Three-punch combo from Manny, who tries to open up but gets clinched.
    Manny rushes, landing with a right before getting clinched.
    Pacquiao to the body, clinched.
    Pacquiao rushes, clinched.
    Counter right lands. Clinch from Floyd.
    Clinch by Floyd.
    Manny digs a left to the body. Clinch.
    Straight left by Manny on the counter. Clinch.
    Manny with a body shot as he's clinched; the ref admonishes Mayweather for holding.
    Flurry by Manny, clinched.
    Manny rushes, clinched.
    Manny goes to the body, gets clinched.
    Manny with a pair of lefts as Floyd circles out. Clinch.

    So, how does a boxer fight an opponent who continually clinches him after landing a shot? Does the true winner of a championship boxing match clinch this often during the fight? In addition, why doesn't Compubox deduct points for clinching and constant evasion by one boxer from the more aggressive fighter?
