It looks like he is flinching, and spazzing out, not boxing really, just trying to get away from conflict, more like a running back than a lineman, and what is funny is that after a guy has missed him a bunch of times, you can see Mayweather make eye contact with them and shake his head as if to say:

Why bother? You will never hit me.

So, he does that a bunch of times, and then he starts counter punching guys as their fists fly by his head, and it plays out like a cartoon where the road runner doesn't just get away from the coyote, but pecks him to death.

I can only imagine how frustrating and emasculating it must be for his opponents to be beaten by someone like that.

Less like he is winning a match, and more like he has hacked the rules of boxing, and is being chased around the ring by real boxers who are pissed and can't do anything about it.

Very compelling.

Like Joe Calzaghe, before he fucked up his hands he wasn't like that, he was lethal. Imagine what this version of Floyd would do to McGregor—it would be a massacre.

The things you own end up owning you.
