I don't consider it all that huge of a feat when a guy survives being momentarily stunned or hurt once for a few seconds of a fight, no. It's not like Floyd immediately came back firing and taking the play away from Shane ala Holyfield-Bowe (1st fight, round 10[?]). He got stunned and stayed pretty defensive the rest of the round. Nothing spectacular that made you go "WOW! What courage!" Shane didn't follow up so Floyd just took him apart. Other than that brief few seconds in that second round I don't see Floyd being pressed that hard and coming back to shift the tide of battle. He got hurt. He clinched and recovered. The round ended. Shane offered next to nothing from the 3rd round on, so Floyd said "OK" and diced him. No problem for PBF.Originally Posted by El Gato
I have yet to see PBF survive a true gut check vs a fighter who truly is given a good chance of beating him going into the bout.
