Floyd’s 8th fight, everyone is expecting a knockout from Floyd here.
From round one you see Floyd’s timing and good positioning. This is one of Mayweather’s more seemingly difficult fights.
What’s interesting is the respect that Floyd shows Larry O’Shields. You get the impression that he knows full well this is one the most experienced fights he’s come up against.
This fight shows Floyd’s resilient nature and his ability to work through a fight and break down a fight, remember his only 20 years old here.
Shields definitely gave a decent account of himself in this bout, but it was still bound to end one way.
Can Larry O’Shields defeat pretty boy?
