    To be honest, the "10 Point Must" system has always been a broken system. This is a clear example of "why". You have a guy who, on one hand, is the greatest defensive boxer of all time; a world-class boxer, known for technique, but has had a tough time putting away opponents in the latter portion of his career. Then you take another guy; somebody who would probably get beaten by many amateur boxers and is completely laughable when compared to the other guy. Somehow, the "good" boxer is "only" ahead 7-3 on some unofficial score cards when he TKOs the guy who should have never been there in the first place... Baffling to me...

    in a post fight interview with FOX Sports he stated he TRIED to bet on himself and on a knockout, but because it's "Mayweather Promotions" putting on the fight, he wasn't allowed to place the bet.

    Whether people think this fight was fixed or not. I would bet this went exactly as Mayweather scripted it. Play cat & mouse until Connor completely gassed himself and open up a flurry that would overwhelm him.

    Even in his MMA fights Connor gets gassed if they go late.

    That's not just Connor. 90% of UFC/MMA fighters are gassed rounds 4-5, because 90% of fights are only 3 rounds. Now, why fighters aren't training for 5round fights when they know they'll be the main card I don't know. But I'm assuming they want to lay it all out in 3 rounds.

    It went how we all thought it would, and that's depressing to me lol. Would have been nice to see Mayweather stumble a bit or something.

    Not like it would really matter to him if he were allowed to bet or not. There's no way to know, but the rumors were saying he was going to bet 5 million. That would have won him somewhere between 1 and 2 million. A tidy sum, but he's making over 300 million from the fight...

    Apparently he owes a pretty huge amount to the IRS. I know that he asked them to ease up on their collection until after he was paid for this fight.

    Pretty sad to have made 1 billion in fight earnings and not be able to pay your taxes.. yet after the fight he says he wants to 'continue to make smart investments' umm...
