Don't you have something better than bullying people around about their scorecards?

I think you need to watch them again.

Kid, this is simple: Broner had the bigger dominance on the ring during those 2 rounds, specially round 11. Broner was finally able to block and roll the majority of Maidana's punches. Maidana was still clipping Broner, but less often and with less power.

As a matter of fact, in most of the time of those rounds, Broner commanded Maidana where to move on the ring. Maidana started to move backwards, not because he wanted to be stalked, but because Broner was pushing him back by sharpshooting with decent power. When Broner move backwards (and stayed on the ropes), it was because Broner wanted it that way. At that moment he was defending better against Maidana's left hook and overhand.

It's ok man. I'm joking...but forum comments sometimes seem harsh without a voice to accent its tone.

To be fair...most scorers gave those rounds to Maidana. I just don't think he won those rounds. Still, I have it 8 rounds to 4 for Maidana.

Actually when I think about it, makes some sense, and relates to Mayweather's fight. Maidana gases out by the end of the fight. That doesn't mean he stops trying and swinging without success. He's got a great boxing heart. However, his body's fatigued enough make his punches to lose some snap. Mayweather and Broner thrived (in my point of view) in the later part of their fights from this.

I don't remember exactly how I scored Hatton vs Mayweather, but I just remember that Ricky made Floyd feel very unconfortable early on, despite Floyd landing more. I think he even almost knocked him down. I'd need to watch it again.

I think both Maidana and Mayweather understimated the attributes of each other. It was a close fight. I think Mayweather would win again a very close decision.

I haven't seen Chaves. I've read and heard that Keith Thurman had a hard time against him, but at the end he was able to knock out Chaves. I need to find that fight. Rios is a very very very skilled inside fighter, but has little technique in forcing out-boxers to fight at this range.

Hands down on what Alex Ariza did on Maidana's conditioning. Maidana's swarm style taxes the body throughout the fight. Maidana's stamina was clearly improved and suited for his particular boxing style. Like I said, Mayweather underestimated Maidana, specially his ability to keep up his pressuring pace.

Then again, Maidana is a human. He's been able to keep throwing punches in the late rounds, but the intensity and power is noticeably diminished as the fight goes on. I think I heard Mayweather highlight this during a more serious interview than the pressers he has to handle.

About the gloves: Horsehair padding is an anachronism and shouldn't be used in boxing. Mayweather makes a huge fuzz about it, because he is trying to create some controversy to spark interest on the fight. At end, he is still right. There's material that can help reduce the damage caused by punching trauma. Boxing can be a harmful sport, and we want great fighters to have great lives inside and outside the ring.

I'm about to be 33, and I look like if I was 25 :P

I think athletic comissions should ban gloves like the Everlast MX and Cleto Reyes with horsehair padding.

The gloves Maidana used in the fight were the same weight as Mayweather's. The material is the key difference. Horsehair padding spreads aways from the impact zone, and it's virtually a bareknucled fight. I don't know if you have used amateur boxing gloves, but they are so well cushioned you barely feel the impact, even if they are 10 ounces. Professional fighting should promote something in between for the sake of fighters health, not just this Mayweather vs Maidana fight.

I just like to take care of myself, and I'm well preserved heh. I used to be a welterweight but now I'm around 160 pounds. I'm actually very lean, so going back to WW is a bit hard.

You're young and still learning new things in boxing. Dedication is key and is good to read you are committed to what you are doing. Just stay in the weight you feel you perform the best, and I suppose the best way to do it is through experience.
