Man, what fight were you watching? Other than that flash knockdown in the first round, Chris was boxing circles around him.

If you see his face after the fight, it looks like he got his ass whipped. But that was only from one blow.

That was no flash knockdown.

He wasn't hurt. I consider knockdowns where you're not hurt, or legs wobbling flash knockdowns. He got right back up.

Algieri actually shook him once or twice, which slowed down his aggressiveness a bit in the later rounds. I'd have to re-watch the fight and score it to see if I agreed with the decision, but I did think it was way closer than how HBO had it. Fact is, the majority of rounds featured Algieri utilizing every part of the ring and Provo unsuccessfully rushing in.

No doubt Provo landed the more significant punches, but as the fight progressed, they became fewer and farther between.

He used the Herrera Blue Print. People overrated Provo after his close fight with with Bradley. Bradley fought a very stupid fight.

I think any slick boxers and movers would beat Provonikov. People hyped him to beat Pacquiao, Mayweather and Marquez. He's just a better version of rios.

I love to see Floyd Mayweather fight Keith Thurman. I think Thurman beat him via KO. Maidana and Guerrero ducked Thurman last year.

Just like the old saying you are good as your last fight. Thurman's volume punching, and power will be too good for FMJ.

Mentally, Floyd dwarfs him. Physically, he has deteriorated and even though he has great style, he doesn't want to have to deal with the style and physicality of these young guys. However, Thurman needs do to a helluva less loading up, posturing for a bomb and getting caught with throw away shots from the likes of slow motion Diaz and Soto Karrass. Imagine what Floyd would do to him even with the decline in speed. I've been a Floyd fan for a long time, but I don't believe his decision to go toe-to-toe with Maidana was as intentional as he led us to believe. He didn't have a choice but to fight that way because of his diminishing skills. All of the greats get old. All of them.

It makes no sense for Floyd, at 38, or possible 39/40 to fight these young hungry lions who have tremendous athletic ability. He probably doesn't want to fight these guys. He's old and only has a few fights left, and he wants to gracefully ride out into the sunset against guys he can eat up like Pacman and Khan.

Not everybody is Archie Moore or Hopkins and if he's around long enough he could get beat by somebody who is young and hungry. That 50/0 mark is a mountain climb.
