Floyd Mayweather Jr. received otherworldly powers from Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne to grab a victory tonight — or he just simply outboxed, outclassed, outshined, and outperformed a guy that was never really ready to take such an enormous step in competition.
MiddleEasy will be hosting an all-night crow eating buffet on the site tonight. Feel free to eat your portion of crow if you truly thought Canelo actually had a chance against Mayweather. People, Canelo didn’t even have a puncher’s chance again Mayweather tonight on Showtime. What happened in tonight’s main event is exactly what people thought would happen if they held just a morsel of boxing knowledge. However it appears that many of you hopped on board the Saul Alvarez hype train and unfortunately it ran out of gas, leaving you stranded in the desert with a dead phone battery.
I didn’t see Canelo winning a single round. Although it’s not what you or I see, it’s what the judges see — and apparently C.J. Ross saw it as a draw. You’ve heard of her name before; she was the judge that had Timothy Bradley defeating Manny Pacquiao last year. HBO’s Harold Lederman even went so far as to say she should be banned from the sport.
We couldn’t produce a .gif of the greatest portion of the fight for you because let’s face it, the entire performance was flawless. However we can show you how hard Canelo can hit a rope and how impressed Floyd is at the feat.
