10 Answers To Questions You Always Wondered About

May 6, 2015 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

 

How did Mayweather win that fight? 

How he won, by scoring points within the rules of boxing, period. You get points for landing hits on the face and body cleanly. And he landed more, he always does, and if you analyse the tapes you can see he landed about 75% more punches. In other words, he completely dominated this fight. And the judges saw that and awarded him between 8 and 10 of the 12 rounds.

Now punches landed, that goes into scoring. But it’s difficult to see when a punch takes a fraction of a second. So subjective things like pace, aggression, poise etc all play a non-official role in scoring. Here we see Mayweather dictate the pace of the fight and showing ring leadership. We perceive aggression from Pacquiao because he comes forward more, the key way in which aggression is measured. But aggression can also be measured in punches thrown, although it’s less striking as you can punch while backing up (like Mayweather does), and here we surprisingly see that it’s Mayweather who threw more punches by a very tiny margin. While Pacquiao was clearly more aggressive, he threw nowhere near the normal rate he usually does, which gets him the win.

So why not? What prevented Pac from throwing volume? Mayweather is a master of defense, and has the physical advantage of length and more reach. This allows him to hit at a distance where Pac can’t hit him, requiring Pac to lunge in and punch from a relatively less stable position. Mayweather can anticipate and counter, or move away. When he did get pinned down on the ropes, he carefully timed his exit and pivoted around Pac towards the center of the ring, where he can dictate the range of the fight. If Pac came in with too many angles preventing Mayweather from escaping, he’d go in for the clinch and pivot. After they break up, he’s center ring again. By doing this, Pac’s offence was neutralised.

That’s mostly it. There are details, but that’s the gist of it.

Most people don’t like watching Mayweather fight, they want to see a slapfest while Mayweather plays chess. Mayweather barely does combinations because combinations put you at risk of getting hit. Instead, he takes potshots, controls distance, his stamina, his position in the ring etc. That’s why May’s KO percentage is relatively low and why many consider him to be a boring fighter. The people that watch him do so because 1) he is unbeaten and they want to see if he’ll get defeated or worse, KTFO 2) some are starstruck by his earnings and think he must be interesting to watch 3) he’s a very complete and tactical boxer. Number (3) is pretty rare among mainstream people who watch one or two boxing matches a year, but it’s the reason he is considered the pound for pound best fighter active today.

At the end of the day this is boxing, a sport with certain rules, within which he thrives. He’s not the most exciting or powerful fighter, not the one who brutally beats people up. He is unbeatable by today’s fighters within the parameters of the sport of boxing, but loses out within the parameters of most spectators.
