I can't believe it. But based on the trending news on many website he’s so scared of the Pac-man. The fight would pay Mayweather eight figures and potentially solidify his reputation as the greatest welterweight of all time, but it might never happen. So Mayweather must really be scared. Here are six reasons why he should be:
1. Manny is physically stronger than Floyd.
Mayweather himself probably wouldn’t dispute this. Manny started his career fighting at 106 pounds; now he fights at nearly 150. I’m not say that he’s taken steroids, but adding an extra 40 pounds of muscle to your initial body weight (especially on such a relatively small frame), can’t be easy to do naturally. If a 106-pound man took steroids for a few years, I’m guessing he’d probably look like Manny Pacquiao.
2. Floyd doesn’t want to jeopardize his perfect record.
"When you get to a certain level of boxing, the sanctioning organizations won’t allow you to fight scrubs to pad your record. That’s why so very few boxers retire undefeated. If Floyd fights Manny, it will be the toughest fight of his career—by far. There’s a chance he’ll lose, and he knows it."
3. Floyd’s career is OVER if he loses
Manny Pacquiao has lost three times before. Each time he’s come back meaner, stronger, better. Mayweather has never really been tested in the ring, much less felt the sting of a loss. This late in his career, he’d have no idea how to deal with it. It would ruin him.
4. Manny wants to trade punches.
Manny isn’t the first boxer to want to trade punches with Mayweather, but he’s the only one fast enough to do it. When Manny connects, he connects, while “Pretty Boy” Floyd tends to score with pitty-pat jabs and lighting-fast but minimally damaging straight rights. Not a good equation for Floyd.
5. Manny has more heart than Floyd.
"If Manny Pacquiao didn’t win his boxing matches as a teenager, his family didn’t eat. His country (the Phillippines) loves him—he is, after-all, a prominent politician there. He’s got an indomitable spirit. The man is heart. In contrast, Floyd Mayweather has been groomed by boxing veterans—the best in the business—since day one. It’s kind of a Rocky Balboa, Ivan Drago thing"
6. For the first time, Floyd believes an opponent can beat him.
"Personally, if I were forced to wager on this fight, I’d have my money on Mayweather, but I wouldn’t be comfortable with it. It’s true Manny will be the best fighter Floyd’s ever fought, but Mayweather is the unequivocal master of peek-a-boo and counterpunch boxing; plus, he’s historically been able to frustrate every opponent with his relentless accuracy. Mayweather has distilled boxing down to a formula designed purely to boost his scorecards—not to be flashy, not to be a crowd-pleasing, only for the win. But Pacquiao can crack the formula…maybe."
I found this great compilation on YouTube, it is very entertaining and very informative, but all I heard were EXCUSES!! Thanks to "Malky Mayweather" for such an awesome job ...
So there you have it. 100 million people (although very few in this country) are demanding this fight, and they’re excited, because if it happens, it’s going to be epic. And if you have even the slightest interest in seeing boxing restored to the glorious days of old, you should be excited too.
Now quit making excuses and prove me wrong, Floyd.
