Oh my god I share the same dilemma as you, word for word verbatim. I started thinking about it that when he finally began giving in to ODST for the at-the-time-potential fight with Floyd, his power just disappeared. Originally I thought it was just because with him being a born-again Christian not wanting to really hurt people too badly in the ring, but then I realized that he doesn't have that power even when he needs it some times. So it sounds fishy for sure. And as for Floyd, yeah he uses something to numb his hands. He has been for many years and it hasn't been a secret. I think that may be the TRT that Blood mentioned.
