A little something about my main man Floyd Mayweather Jr… For those of u riding the Manny Pacquiao hype train… Floyd is quite possibly the most unique fighter to grace the ring in almost every aspect of boxing even toppling the world renowned sweet pea Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker…before the so called boxing fan attempts to topple my statements and proclaim “undenying” blasphemy lets take a most deserved look at the career and the skill of Pernell Whitaker.
I for one have nearly embraced all of those boxers willing to circum to the intense adrenaline and control each step, graceful movement, and in-ring knowledge to create a fight that is so complex in nature and so varied in a broad perspective that even the way they gasp for air is a controlled strategy within the strategy of just tilting their heads 22
Yes that immense complexity has always intrigued me the fact that a man can out think another in a matter of milliseconds and create traps in a sport that’s so dynamic and so confusing is nothing short of amazing.
With that said only the defensive oriented boxer can produce a performance worthy of notoriety beyond the mindless punch punch block punch punch move that categorizes quiet possibly every boxer that steps into the ring besides a handful of greats.
Pernell was amazing in his skill to see and or predict his opponents punches but in all honesty that’s where it ends to be a great fighter u must understand your skill use it to your advantage and train as hard as you can with everything else that you’re not naturally gifted so that you can create the perfect fighter and with that statement exits Pernell….enters Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The difference between a fighter and a perfect fighter is the zero after your wins followed by a dash…. Floyd is gifted defensively and threw the speed in which his hands can leave his side and abruptly discourage that who is opposite of his direction. What makes Floyd possibly the best fighter ever…. (yes I said it sugar ray )…is his gift of thought, his gift of intelligence.
To say that Floyd’s mind is so complex that if he were to have studied science he could have cured the aids epidemic is not by any means an understatement, but lucky for us he chose boxing. Mayweather’s ability to adjust to any type of fight is so complex that 98.67% of the audience don’t even see his abilities.
His grace and knowledge is beyond the legions of boxers who have come before him in the attempt to solidify their legacy. Floyd (and mark my words) is the best fighter ever and Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will soon realize that the whole Population of Manila cannot thwart the excellence of the most intelligently gifted boxer to step into the ring.
Floyd can never lose his zero thus evidently proclaiming to be molded from birth to be the first ever perfect fighter bar
