    What are the fight in which Floyd had to make adjustments? and when I mean adjustment, I mean he figured out his opponents

    If you can give examples, that would be a bonus.

    You can go through fights and find specific examples. You'll see a fighter land a punch, then suddenly that punch no longer lands and even gets countered. I've seen this adjustment happen in a manner of seconds.

    Let's look at another fight vs a southpaw, and one that started off really well: Zab Judah. This is one of my favorite adjustments.

    Now let's fast forward to the end of round 4. Go to position 22:30 in the video. You'll see Judah land an excellent counter right hook on Floyd. Excellent punch.

    Now keep watching, and look at the very next exchange. Judah literally tries to land that hook again, but this time, Floyd makes an adjustment and counters his counter with a hard left hook to the body. And Judah did not like that shot as you can see from his reaction. Judah had issues landing that punch the rest of the evening. It got taken away.

    Enjoy the example.

    ...virtually all of them? :huh

    Maybe not Baldomir or Victor Ortiz or something where the opponent has just a straightforward plan A with nothing else. Pretty much all the rest though..

    Can't tell if OP is trolling, or a newer fan that is really looking into insight regard where the saying "Mayweather always makes adjustments" comes from.

    I provided a specific example to assist, but I don't know if it's just trolling or if he wanted legitimate examples for a legitimate thread. I'm hoping it's just a new boxing fan looking for insight.

    The Ortiz adjustment. He figured out Ortiz was an idiot.

    Hatton was a real adjustment. Judah not really his game plan was always to let Judah tire then go on the offensive. There was no adjustment what so ever for Oscar.

    His main strategy is usually to wait until the cherrypicked shot old man or no stamina having bum in front of him gets tired, and then proceed to dominate him

    I see a lot of Floyd starting slow, then beginning to try right around the time the cherrypicked opponent starts to slow down.

    Can't say it's not an adjustment, but to really be impressive at adjusting you need to have some serious adversity in front of you.

    The only time I can think of that qualifies is Maidana I, though imo that's more a case of Maidana slowing down (and still winning 5-7 rounds).

    What he IS good at is learning from his mistakes AFTER the fight. JLC II and Maidana II are great examples.
