  • Comments Thread For: After Mayweather's Scorecard Tip, Davis Becomes Tank And Rolls Over Barrios

    by Corey Erdman - When Floyd Mayweather barged into Gervonta Davis' corner after round nine of his bout against Mario Barrios and began talking over Davis' trainer Calvin Ford, it would have been understandable to assume it was simply Mayweather's well-documented and well-earned main character syndrome flaring up at the worst possible time.

      And this is why it's laughable that people were upset at Floyd for stepping in. Davis' coach was doing him a disservice. While he was technically up on the cards, Gervonta was wayyyy too passive up until that point. Floyd did.the right thing here. Floyd can be annoying but people hate on him for the stupidest stuff.

            What ever advice his trainer was giving him wasn’t working. So Mayweather stepping in and tipping him helped more than the coach.

              Fans will b/tch either way. Some fans were talking crap about Canelo-Trout, when the scorecards were read after the 9th inning. Some fans were mad because this changed Trout’s approach, making him more aggressive. In that case they were mad because Trout knowing the scorecards made him push the action.

              Fast forward to Tank vs Barrios, they are now mad that Davis was told about an unofficial score which made him more aggressive.

              Their anger and frustration depends on who they are rooting for. If someone told Barrios he’s losing on all 3 scorecards and he becomes more aggressive and KO’ed Tank, no one would care.

              Edit: Removed comments towards Corey Erdman. I initially misunderstood what he was saying. He is saying there is nothing wrong with what Floyd did and that flew over my head.

Chris Feldman (the journalist behind this article) would not have made an article about it and Tank’s detractors would have rejoiced. Chris Feldman would have likely called it a “smart” move by who ever told Barrios, hypothetically.


                Pick and choose who you praise and for what. That’s boxing media for you.
                I agree with your overall sentiment. I think the writer's name is Corey Erdman. Tone is sometimes tricky but I liked the article overall. I don't like dry writers. This dude is fine.

                    I have to say that Steve Farhood has never seemed to be a good scorer of fights.
