Has Floyd Mayweather moved Past Manny Pacquiao? You read and decide….

5 Comments

Robert Guerrero was befuddled and bamboozled by Floyd Mayweather Jr. Saturday night in Las Vegas. That, at least, would explain away his actions.

The dozens of right hands that bounced off his head must have left him slightly dazed and more than a little confused, or else why would he have raised his hands in presumed victory after being on the wrong end of a master class in defensive boxing?

Guerrero may have been the only man alive who thought he had beaten Mayweather, although in his heart of hearts, he likely knew it was fraudulent—an early start on putting salve on an injured psyche, preparation for girding himself once again for battle one day.

Guerrero, like everyone who steps into the ring with Mayweather, dreamed about being the one man to solve the puzzle, to twist that Rubik’s Cube of shoulder rolls, angles and footwork in just the right way to create the magical opening no one else had ever found. Instead he’s just another name on a long resume, one more fighter to be forgotten with time and distance.

Just another opponent for a brilliant fighter in desperate need of a foil.

And so it comes to this, the single question that has haunted Floyd Mayweather Jr. since 2009, when a potential superfight invaded the nation’s sports psyche.

What about Manny Pacquiao?

That’s still the fight, to this day, boxing fans want most. Despite consecutive losses, Pacquiao is the one opponent Floyd has been handcuffed to and can’t quite escape.

defensive skill YES, but overall footwork, speed, ring generalship, fire power. i go with PACMAN and one thing the most important thing in boxing MANNY has the BALLS compare to KFC.

“Ring Generalship” huh? This idiot couldn’t come up with a plan to neutralize/adjust to JMM biggest offensive weapon AFTER 3 previous fights, the counter-right. He walked right into it and got KTFO. He’s got the ring IQ of a rock and you think ring generalship is an asset?

you are right on. he walked into jmm’s right punch. jmm didn’t do anything special. it was Pac’s lapse of judgement. notice jmm’s broken face early in the fight? Pac is still the Mac foo!

DaveG then why is floyd so scared of pacquiao? JMM fought pacquiao 4 times but Floyd did not have the balls to fight him once. JMM doesnt want to fight Pacquiao anymore because he doesnt believe he can ko pacquiao again and he doesnt want to get a beating brfore he got lucky.

Maywearther has to have BALLS to fight the Pacman, which he has none. So he’s going to fight the fighters he could beat and then retire. So he could say he is the best fighter, but until he fights Pacman he will never be the best pound for pound fighter in the world.
