Thank you for posting that, I stole it and put it on my Facebook.

I'm not much of a boxing fan, but I know a theft when I see one.

I'm still delighted that ESPN put the fight up for free. I think that sort of stuff could get a lot of casual fans interested again. I know I watched because there was a big name fighter involved!

I can't even remember the last time I watched a whole boxing match (I think it was a Cotto fight back in like 2012-13). I enjoyed watching the fight, just not happy with the outcome.

It was a fun fight with a lot of good action. If more fights were like that I'd be more inclined to watch.

Save from what? 12 rounds, 4 3 rounds "quarters". It was just a phrase to describe the fight going past the 3rd round, I'm well aware that a fight isn't actually tracked by quarters.

There isn't a lot of action in this thread but, if you look back through, I'm one of the more frequent posters in it. I do understand how a fight works.
Weird way of saying that. So you think he's gassed after 3 rounds?

Probably right, not even really sure it's an expression I remember hearing or using before but just sorta popped into my head the day I posted that.

But yeah, if I had to guess, I see CM trying to come out fast and aggressive but having little results except for wearing himself out. Obviously I could completely wrong and he could prove to be more disciplined than I'm giving him credit for but I just feel like, when the lights come on and the bell rings he'll revert back to what he knows. I'm a boxing guy and don't watch much MMA at all but I don't get the impression there's usually much of a feeling out process to most MMA fights, action starts quick. That approach in a 12 round boxing match can be tough if he doesn't find much success early (which basically no one does against Floyd).

Once again, another lackluster performance by Adrian Broner. I know, Garcia was the favorite, but I expected more from Broner. I thought Broner was going to be something special, but he continues to underwelm. How many rounds did he win last night, maybe 2 ? Broner would rather be a celebrity than an all time great boxer

Where does Lomachenko fall in the P4P? I think you could pick him, Ward, Bud, and GGG from a hat.

Oddly I might put Golovkin 4th.
I think he's first honestly but nobody else probably ranks him as highly as I would. The pro record is still probably too small for most people but, as you've pointed out before, the amateur record more than makes up for it to me.
