1. Lennox Lewis on a good night could beat any heavyweight in history on their best night.

2. Floyd Mayweather possesses the greatest boxing mind to ever step in a ring.

3. James Toney at cruiserweight would have beat Rocky Marciano (that's the weight-class Marciano would have been in). Additionally, Marciano would have lost to most of the top heavyweights from the 90s, 80s, 70s, and 60s.

4. Mayweather won the first Castillo fight period. The judges got it right and so did half of press row.

5. 99% of people watch boxing for the wrong reasons.

I thought the Castillo fightcard was so off the only way you could see a Mayweather win in that performance would be because you are already a massive massive Mayweather fan. To any impartial eye that is a Castillo victory. But hey considering the title of the thread that is a good one to bring up.

They wanna see fucking idiots beat each other's brains out. They wanna see blood, people getting hurt and destroyed. For example, the Gatti-Ward fights and more recently the Marquez-Vasquez fights. What the fuck was the purpose of having them fight that much?

Quite the contrary my friend. For people who actually tried to score this fight OBJECTIVELY it breaks down to are you able to perceive what's really going on? Mayweather's skill is insidious, you really have to pay attention to detail and most people don't do that. Like I said previously half of press row scored it for Mayweather. In short, not everyone has what it takes to be a boxing judge.

Yup Castillo clearly beat Mayweather. Not a beatdown but a clear close win for Castillo. 8-4 or 7-5 at a stretch.

I can understand why the judges scored it for Mayweather; his punches looked better while Castillo was mostly landing to the body, which most judged and fans don't count. Like aware said, most people don't apprecieate the intricacies of boxing.
