Manny Pacquiao fans keep bringing up Floyd Mayweather’s amateur boxing career losses to bring Floyd’s career down just to hype up Manny’s.
This shows you what type of fans you’re dealing with. These fans are new to the sport and only follow Manny Pacquiao’s career, and have no idea about boxing history.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has 6 amateur losses with 84 wins, but amateur losses don’t count when it comes to professional boxing legacy. It seems Pacquiao fans are reaching for anything they can to discredit Floyd and his amazing legacy as a PRO boxer.
A lot of amateur boxers lose. Boxing in the amateur’s is a learning process to get adjusted to different styles of fighting to better prepare you for the professional level, but the amateur style is points based and not power based, you wear head gear and see a lot of guys winning with wild flurries in these competitions instead of precise power punching. Many great amateur fighters couldn’t cut it in the Pro’s like Mark Breland, who had an impressive 110-1 amateur record, and Howard Davis Jr. with an impressive amateur record of 125–5.
A lot of professional boxing stars lost in the amateurs but when they faced the people who’ve beaten them in the amateurs again in the professional level, these stars ended up beating them. An example is Miguel Cotto who lost to Olympic gold medalist Muhammad Abdullayev in the amateurs but when they fought each other in the pro’s, Miguel Cotto beat Abdullayev by TKO in 9.
I would strongly advice these Manny Pacquiao fans/Floyd haters to learn about boxing before spewing stuff out of their mouth without knowing what they’re talking about.
It’s getting so ridiculous that pretty soon these Pacquiao fans are going to include sparring sessions, and say Paul Spadafora beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. and consider it a loss on his record.
Face it guys, your fighter didn’t want to fight Floyd Mayweather, even Stevie Wonder could see it. All Manny had to do was take the simple blood tests and the fight would get done.
Compared to Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr. hands down has the superior boxing skills, this isn’t a matter of opinion, it’s a fact, if you study the sweet science you would know the concept is to hit and not get hit, and Floyd does this better than anyone in boxing today.
