Ok so I am torn. It didn't look real, those knock downs were shady as fuck. But what would he/rizin/his team benefit from this? A couple of million form betting?
Lets say it was 10m. It looks like hes getting that every couple of fights anyway. Why do this to his career and legacy? It just doesnt make sense.
But then its just so weird. Nothing punches give him full chicken leg knockdowns. But when he actually starts Boxing again hes fine, ducking and weaving.
I think it was legit to be fair. They were throwing hurtful looking shots it's just the knockdowns themselves didn't seem massively damaging, but would I be surprised that a much smaller guy would struggle with punch resistance against a skilled boxer of Floyd's size? No, not really. It's hard to explain the sobbing at the end too. Crying on cue is kinda difficult.
