That made people overreact big time in this fight. It wasnt close at all. If you rewatch it now then you come away with a totally different view & scorecard. Chavez is my both and was tough but Floyd put on a masterful performance and it was as skillful & one sided even if he had to work some. Definitely shouldnt have been close scores IMO
Yea, Lederman gave Chavez the first two rounds, if I'm not mistaken.
