So Floyd pushed the gas too much with this kid when he had no reason to?

Basically yeah, didnt even push the gas, its that much of a mis-match...but exhibition matches generally are.  Quite frankly he never really pushed the gas with McGregor either but they had to make that one look reasonably competitive of they would’ve hung em from the rafters.  He just knew a) he couldnt punch and b) he’d be blowing out of his arse inside 4 rounds.

But watch the fight, Floyds laughing at this kid, look at his face.  Was a bit out of order really, at least by my reckoning.  For a start the kids about 2 weight divisions below Floyd, if Floyd had sat down on his shots he could’ve knocked him senseless.

I reckon Little Chris has got a good chance.  I mean he ain't all that but quite frankly I think DeGale is extremely overrated, lost to Groves, lost to Truax, struggled against Molina.

Canelo v Danny Jacobs, May 4th.  If he does Jacobs, there's only Billy Joe Saunders (and possibly Andrade) and it'll be difficult to not put Canelo in the conversation with the greatest middleweights of all time, I mean he'll've done everyone in his generation (except Floyd of course).  I'm not sure if he's quite Marvin Hagler or Carlos Monzon but fuck, what else can a man do but beat the best that are around?  And its not as if they are slouches on his record either, this is his 9th year now of fighting solid competition and he's only lost once.

The 8 rounds or so I got to see he lost at least 7 of them if not all of them Pacman came out swinging from the off considering he is 40 what a beast!!

Does Amir Khan know what hes signing up too.......

I've been asked for predictions, I don't think it goes 8 rounds...and thats me being extremely charitable.  In his last fight this guy nearly got clipped by Samuel Vargas for crying out loud.

You gotta admire his bottle though, didn't need to fight this guy just like he didn't need to go up two weight classes and fight Canelo Alvarez, for a man with no chin he has no qualms about facing fighters with heavy duty power.

Yeah to be fair to him he has turned down fights that would have been " Easier Money " for fights where he as been totally banged in sorts ruined any legacy he may of had however.

 

 

Guess his legacy is that bloke who got banged out by X and Y fighters

The trouble is he has a tendency to get banged out through his own fault.  Breidis Prescott, he got dropped and just stormed right back into the fray, thats just not intelligent, same with Danny Garcia fight, no one has handled Garcia the way Khan was early doors but he just boxes like a hyper-active kid, gets a little success and then gets sloppy.  For example, he gets into 5, 6 punch exchanges, if you're doing him with ones and twos that don't mean that he's a fraggle and you need to go toe to toe with him, thats asking to get knocked out, sometimes you need to just stick with what you're doing...and thats what he should have been doing with Garcia, to this day no one has been fuckin' Garcia up like Khan was, it was mental, the guys got blinding handspeed but no boxing brain, he doesn't know how to react to getting hit, he makes schoolboy errors like circling across his opponents field of vision instead of away from it, I've never boxed in my life, amateur or pro and I can tell you those things are fucking deadly errors.  He fights like a woman, he gets hit and just starts going for it, like bitches swinging handbags.  And the Canelo knockout, well, that was clean as a whistle.  Point being a bit of boxing brain could've avoided that other shit cuz Garcia was tailormade for his, give Garcia movement and he dunno where he is. 

So yeah, Amir Khan, world class qualities but world class flaws as well.

Len do you reckon Myweather is going to come back and fight Pacman or Khabib?? 

No.  Ellerbe made a statement yesterday saying Floyd doesn't have the desire anymore.  He's what, 41, 42?  I hope he doesn't either, nice to see a man retire health and wealth in tact.
