I just rewatched the first half of the fight. DLH won the 2nd round... Rounds 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 all go to Floyd.

Watching the HBO telecast, and its hilarious how anti Mayweather they are. Funny some of the shots they considered "landed" for DLH, when in reality it was hitting elbow, shoulder and a whole lot of nothing.

ok, I can that beeing true with Hatton.
But I don't really see Floyd a a devastating machine who sucks the life out of people. He outsmarts them.

cool!
I'll rewatch it too later!
I already saw it more than once and always had it very close. You have only one round for Oscar! That's not how the majority of fans saw it. But judging is also a matter of taste.
I agree, biased commentary influences people BIG time!

The judges were clearly swayed by the fan reaction in the arena. I mean, one judge gave DLH round 9, and there is no shot in hell that DLH was close to winning it. In fact it was probably one of the two best rounds for Floyd in the fight.

Finished the fight. Gave Oscar rounds 2, 7 and 12, the rest were Floyd's. Just took a look at the official scorecards and mine matches up exactly with the 116-112 judge outside of the fact he gave Oscar the 4th round as well, which I thought Floyd won.

EDIT: Sorry, mixed up. Meant the 2nd one, not 4th one.

Fvck all the bullshyt positioning in boxing that I don't really understand; I still want to see Mayweather v Pacquiao. I don't understand how a sport that is struggling to remain relevant in terms of sports popularity is going to complain that their sport is disappearing and decreasing in revenue when for years they refuse to organize the fight that everyone wants to see.

Fvck Don King. Fvck both of their promoters, managers, bullshyting yes men, etc. Either make the fight happen, make a fight with the guy who knocked Pacquiao out happen, or just sit back and watch as the sport fades into obscurity. They'd have a much better chance if they could just get more people watching; get more young kids interested in boxing. Instead the headlines are just a bunch of posturing bullshyt.

Idk I don't follow boxingbut I watch the big name fights, maybe their's something I don't get

Mayweather already fought the guy who knocked out Pacquiao. If you saw it, you'd know why there is no reason to do it again.

Mayweather already fought and dominated Marquez. Why should he give him a rematch if there are other fights out there? Other than Bradley, who else is there? Pacquiao wont get a fight now for sure until Floyd says so.

I do agree though, the promoters ran this sport into the ground.

and he'll win with UD on both
