It was impressive if you just look at the record and assume Chico came to fight. He didn't, Floyd still would have won even if he did come to fight. You have to consider the historical context. Corrales was scheduled to begin a 14 month prison sentence shortly after the fight. He had a lot on his mind, and it really showed in the fight.
He barely threw punches, he just plodded all night.
Still a great win for Floyd, but he was fighting a man whose heart wasn't in the fight.
