WHENEVER a boxer showed a chink in Floyd Mayweather’s armour, you savoured and analysed it. But first you doubted it, then replayed it.

So rare were these moments, these collector’s items, that when they emerged, they were typically put under the microscope and scrutinised, later to become textbooks from which others could learn.

The Floyd Mayweather research project started with Jose Luis Castillo, who had his moments in a close 2002 loss, before being updated by DeMarcus Corley, who shook Mayweather with a southpaw hook in 2004, and then Shane Mosley, who did the same with an overhand right in 2010.
