A lot of the Floyd Mayweather fans like to take shots at Manny Pacquiao usually attacking his skills and choice of opponents saying things like he only waits for guys to look bad or lose before he fights them.
Manny didn’t look great against Juan Manuel Marquez and the Floyd fans kept making it known that Manny is a bum who looked like crap and is overrated. They are so vocal saying Marquez clearly beat Manny. So I guess that means Floyd Mayweather should he fight Manny Pacquiao and beat him deserves no credit since Pacquiao is just an exposed, overrated bum.
If anyone is overrated it’s Floyd Mayweather. Floyd might have the technical skills but his legacy and demeanor are more businessman than fighter. Floyd is the greatest cherry picker of all time. He doesn’t fight often but loves to toot his own horn and sing praises upon himself that he is greater than Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis, because he is undefeated.
Mayweather is only undefeated because he avoids guys who are really dangerous, like a prime Antonio Margarito, or Miguel Cotto. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is now willing to take on Manny Pacquiao after Manny looked vulnerable and less than dominant in a close majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez, a fighter who has always given Manny trouble and someone that Floyd outboxed and beat unanimously.
Before this fight Floyd would rarely mention Manny’s name in a challenge or if he did he would later retract his statements and go back to his old reliable, “Take The Test”. Now all of a sudden Floyd’s adviser and his team are willing to fight Manny Pacquiao so confidently, it makes you wonder why didn’t Floyd fight the Pacquiao that beat Miguel Cotto, the reason why he didn’t is because that Pacquiao was so scary and destructive that he feared him and started believing Pacquiao might be on some type of enhancements.
I will start using the Mayweather fan logic if Pacquiao vs. Mayweather happens. If Floyd wins he doesn’t deserve any credit because according to the Floyd fan logic he beat a washed up fighter who was exposed by Marquez.
