In an evening that saw some great boxing before dippng into farce, the main event was much as expected. From the first to the last, Floyd Mayweather was in control of the bout.
Deji landed a few shots, which was about as much as could be expected or hoped for, and even managed to get Mayweather’s attention in the fifth round.
But as the sixth round came on, Floyd decided to put an end to it and stepped on the gas. Having toyed with Deji up to this point, he got the young man backed onto the ropes and landed 11 unanswered punches, including an uppercut that clearly rocked Deji.
Kenny Bayless decided that he had seen enough, and while it may have been early in pure boxing terms, considering the situation and personnel involved, it was the right move.
