Today on Debates with Big G we have this Mythical Matchup... *@floydmayweather vs Sugar Ray Robinson* (Inspired by a whining Floyd hater) .
Ray Robinson was a great fighter who of which most of us living today didn’t get a chance to experience the journey of. Thanks to YouTube and other outlets his legend lives on. With that said we ALL know Floyd and what he’s capable of. Now of course you’ll all say I’ll choose Floyd and I’d say “you’re absolutely CORRECT”. Pretty boy would have been too much for Robinson. Watching back on Robinson’s style, Floyd would have frustrated him throughout the fight and hit him at will in the later rounds. Many of Rays opponents were flat footed and stood directly in front of him. With zero head movement. Floyd’s ring IQ is on another level he would have neutralized Sugars attacks and worn him out with his defense and unleashed His “Pretty Boy” attacks as the fight grew older. In my eyes 10/10 times Floyd wins this fight definitively!! .
The older guys who consider themselves pro boxing analysts often disagree for the same reason your parents used to say “the music of today ain’t like the music of yesterday”. Opinions based on their era and dislike of Floyd. Funny thing is these same analysts contradict themselves constantly while others just can’t bare the fact that Floyd can’t lose. I called 50/50 of Floyd’s fights and so far I’m 100%. Argue that lol. Anyway, RIP to a great boxing legend in Sugar Ray Robinson
(Correct me if I’m wrong, I’m NOT a boxing professional nor do I claim to be it’s just what my eyes see and my knowledge of being around Floyd and boxing in recent years)

🇺🇸💥 Andre Dirrell was less than six minutes away from a dominating unanimous decision win before chaos erupted.
Instead, Dirrell beat Arthur Abraham on a disqualification for an intentional foul at 1:13 of the 11th round on Saturday night in the second stage of the Super Six World Boxing Classic.
Dirrell (19-1) slipped when he was hit by a glancing blow to the chin in the corner. While Dirrell was sitting down, Abraham hit him across the chin with a right hand and Dirrell couldn't continue.
"I was not looking at his feet, I was looking at his eyes," Abraham said through an interpreter. "I didn't see if he was down."
During the confusion after Abraham's illegal punch the ring filled with people, including, Dirrell's brother, Anthony.
He tried to rush to check on his brother, who was down in the opposite corner, and had to be restrained.
I just wanted to see if my brother was all right," Anthony Dirrell said. "I apologize for my actions. But I was just worried."
Dirrell seemed disoriented and unsure that he won the fight. He was sent to the hospital for a brain scan. Anthony Dirrell said his brother was OK, but promoter Gary Shaw said Dirrell didn't really know where he was as he was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital.
Andre Dirrell was comfortably ahead when the fight was stopped.
Italy's Guido Cavalleri scored it 97-92, Michigan's Frank Garza 98-91 and Thailand's Hanek Hongtonhkam had it 97-92
