    For those bragging about Conor landing more punches than Maidana, Cotto, Pacquiao, Canelo or whatever, let's get something straight:

    Quantity is not quality. All those guys put Floyd in danger at some point. All those guys landed punches that had real danger behind them and made Floyd back off and be very cautious. Conor landed a lot, but mostly weak shit with no effect. And most of what he landed, he only did because Floyd was pushing forward and allowing Conor to unload to tire him.

    Yet another detail: This is the worst version of Floyd ever. Maidana didn't fight this Floyd. Neither did Cotto, Pacquiao or Canelo. So, don't get too proud of your boy. He got played and barely landed anything with real danger behind.

    Let that sink in.

    LOL he landed more because Mayweather had no respect for McGregors boxing ability or power.
    He walked McGregor down, can't remember the last time Mayweather did that.
    Easy money.
    0-1

    Floyd was a big troll that night that's why. When was the last time Floyd trolled like that? never. And mystic mac's so called godly power did nothing.

    Connor gassed throwing useless punches

    After round 4, Floyd didn't really bother blocking these baby punches

    Manny never had Floyd in danger and had half the Accuracy of Conor. Conor did pretty well.

    That is the truth. I just rewatched the fight (sober). Floyd's disregard for Conor's power and skills was astonishing. At one point, Floyd just followed him around without even cutting off the ring or angles. He didn't even care it seemed. That's why he got hit.

    Pacquiao landed a much more powerful punch than anything Conor landed and forced Floyd to back off against the ropes and unloaded a series of hard punches against the body. It's undeniable that Pacquiao put Floyd in more danger than Conor.

    Compubox is literally two guys hitting a button every time someone throws a punch, or a love tap in Conor's case. It's a system that does nothing to give an accurate assessment of how a fight is playing out.

    This is the type of stuff Conor was being credited with.

    Caught Mayweather off guard, he didn't even have a chance to react.

    Yeah I rewatched it and in hindsight, that's nothing to really brag about. Most of those punches were slaps. He lost the meaningful sting on his punches pretty early in the match.

    Outside of a few body shots essentially everything he threw were arm punches.

    Manny also didn't get knocked out, or gas throwing useless punches. Floyd also didn't march Manny down, which inherently opens you up to get hit. Mayweather fought this in the zeroth gear which is why Conor had ANY success.

    He landed 111 punches officially but I wonder how many of them were illegal rabbit punches that the ref did nothing about...
