On May 2 the day has finally come to show the world that Manny Pacquiao never really had a shot against Floyd “Money” Mayweather. The world will see that he was nothing more than a media hype job who was put in with mostly drained, washed up, or tailor-made opponents to make him look great.
For years boxing fans had to endure the relentless and obnoxious fanbase of Manny Pacquiao, they would predict a knockout before every one of his fights. You would think they would have been humbled and brought back to reality when Juan Manuel Marquez, a man Floyd Mayweather schooled easily, knocked Pacquiao out cold with a right hand counter. Instead of taking the loss well, they made excuses saying that Marquez was using PEDS because he was working with Memo Heredia a former PED chemist, and that was the only reason he got knocked out. What about the blatant mistakes he makes? Maybe that was the reason Pacquiao got knocked out cold because he lunged in with his face?
These fans have no real boxing knowledge. They mainly consist of casual fans, and I liken them to the Mike Tyson fans, when Tyson got older these die hard Tyson fans would still order or tune into his fights hoping maybe they would see a glimpse of the old Iron Mike, the Pac fans have the same mentality they believe they will see the old Pacquiao, the one who was tearing up guys, the problem is we haven’t seen that Pacquiao since he beat Antonio Margarito, so stop living in denial.
Freddie Roach and the Pac fans actually have the nerve to predict a KO or a destruction and schooling of Floyd Mayweather Jr by the hands of a one dimensional flawed fighter? I will say this, I cannot wait for May 2, I will have the last laugh as Money Mayweather picks apart and dismantles Manny Pacquiao with ease. When the one sided fight is over Manny will embarrassingly wish he never signed the contract because he will be schooled worse than any other Mayweather opponent.
