Boxing has haters like no other sport and the number one guy to hate on right now is Floyd Mayweather Jr, he is the man that people hate for whatever reason. Money Mayweather can never catch a break, and you have to give this man credit for having such a strong confident demeanor because any other man in his position would break with all this hatred and criticism being thrown at them.
The hatred lingers on even after Manny Pacquiao got knocked out. Almost all of the Mayweather naysayers were riding the Pacquiao bandwagon hoping that he would be the one to dethrone the boxing king. How could he take the crown when he couldn’t even beat Juan Manuel Marquez in 4 tries while it only took Floyd all but one time to school Marquez.
Manny Pacquiao needed Floyd Mayweather, Floyd never needed Manny. So many people had it twisted from day one, when the truth is Manny never fought guys at their best, Floyd fought them all at their best. When Floyd wanted the drug testing, Manny Pacquiao got scared and backed down, that was the key moment in making the fight and it’s not Floyd’s fault that the fight never happened, it was all Manny Pacquiao’s fault.
With the Pacquiao fanboys gone, the truth always comes out, and the truth is Floyd Mayweather Jr is the cash cow, and the greatest boxer of this generation. Hands down nobody not even Robert Guerrero who is a much tougher test than Manny Pacquiao can dethrone the king.
Floyd has consistently fought the best guys coming off great wins and gets hated for it because the haters want to see this man fall they are jealous of him, they hate a man with confidence and swagger, and most of all they hate that he is rich and has more money than they do. Instead of hating on a man cause he was able to be successful and afford nice things, why don’t you haters focus on you, and try to do something positive to get on that level.
Please enjoy the Floyd Mayweather vs. Robert Guerrero fight because we know the ones who hate Floyd the most are the same ones who keep ordering his fights, just keep making him rich, and while you are at it try this time to drop the hate and enjoy a legend in action, fighters like Mayweather don’t come around that often and when they do you have to pay attention.
