    the middleweights very always the draw for me
    not just the leonard/hearns/hagler/duran big four
    but the other greats -- antuofurmo, hamsho, roldan, benitez, sibson, caveman lee, minter, briscoe, sutherland, cuevas...
    lighter weight fights were always appealing to me
    mostly because khjtv9 used to have the weekly gillette boxing show
    remember danny little red lopez, bobby chacon, bazooka limon, ruben olivarez?
    and who can forget arguello/pryor 1?
    and i fucken loved ray boom boom mancini [full homo]
    people always talk about the first round of hearns/hagler, which was great
    but this was always my fave...

    Conor hadn´t thrown a punch in forever, was being knocked around the ring, stumbling and bumbling.
    Ref´s job is to protect the fighter when the fighter´s no longer capable of protecting himself, especially enforced in this era with all the brain study.
    Good show anyway.
    All in all, May fight weekend was fun and the fight was better than expected, about as good as anyone could´ve hoped for.
    Have to call the entire event a success.
    BTW, Vegas legalized for rec purposes back in July, so if you´ve not been since then..it´s real.

    totally agree
    was pulling for mcgregor but he had nothing left and was gassed
    even if conor had recovered he had no steam left on his punches
    ref did a great job (all fight btw) and all he did was prevent the inevitable
    great success indeed -- much better than most (certainly myself) anticipated
    conor looked good for a couple rounds, competitive and game overall, and floyd was brilliant adapting as usual
    boxing won, mma won, and conor and floyd raked :vrp:

    Conor was sharp on the outside, but he wasn´t ready for inside technique and banging.
    Will need a lot for more work as far as inside technique goes if he wants to continue in boxing and actually move up in the ranks.
    Spent too much time trying to evade instead of stepping into May and holding his ground and banging in some return shots to the body.
    What Mosley did to Margarito is what Conor needed to respond with as the fight went on and May started walking forward.
    Sucked to see Conor let a smaller guy bully him like that, but I guess we can only expect so much from Conor under these circumstances.
    Which brings me to old man May..Lol @ dragging it out against a newcomer that´s never even been beyond 5 rounds
    I have to give it to May, he will do anything it takes to win, but my god that was sad
    It made for a good fight, but wow

    Conor acted the fool and at least he got paid.
    He was a fool to start so fast and gas so badly

    Floyd showed why he's the champ. Conor needs to STFU and get back to UFC and defend the belts he's won before they are both stripped from him

    Will that happen? Oh hell no, the UFC is not going to harm it's cash cow

    Yeah it was bloodsport so of course I was in.

    And Yes boxing is a pale shade of what it was when we watched Hagler / Hearns together.
    It's my opinion that all of the better fighters got into MMA since boxing looked so tired and stale.
    And watching the undercard nothing has changed to save boxing... it's toast
