Floyd Mayweather fanboys never seize to amaze me. These extreme fanatics are always talking negative about Manny Pacquiao and ways to discredit him after each victory. They try to pair him up unrealistically with someone bigger and stronger who can beat him. Now they are calling for Manny Pacquiao to fight middleweight champion Sergio Martinez after his sensational one punch KO of Paul Williams on HBO.
What I would like to know is why are the Floyd Mayweather fanboys so worried about who Manny Pacquiao fights next but they never try to demand the same out of Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
You would think if you’re a fan of a specific fighter you would want to see your fighter in the boxing ring as much as possible; not the Mayweather fanboys, they are of a different breed they just like looking at posters of Floyd hanging in their bedroom wall and don’t seem to be disappointed at Floyd’s reluctance to get back into the boxing ring.
At least Manny Pacquiao is active and fighting and giving the fight fans exciting fights. Floyd fights once in a blue moon, he rather spend his days acting foolish and throwing money around at Las Vegas nightclubs.
It’s almost like they are living vicariously through Floyd. They like his hip hop swag, his cash, his attitude, his unblemished record. They even try to make sense out of things that you just can’t justify, like when Floyd Mayweather Sr. clearly said that he “Feared for his son’s life if he fought Manny Pacquiao” and Roger Mayweather acting like Manny is on some secret potion that makes him bulletproof. The average person with common sense will just laugh at the Mayweathers accusations and say “yup, Floyd’s shook.” If Floyd isn’t scared to fight or has extreme confidence in Pacquiao being such an easy fight why all the stipulations? Why not just take care of business and collect a cool $30 million? It’s almost a compliment thinking little Manny Pacquiao is on steroids because it shows what he is doing is unbelievable, that a man his size must need some enhancement drugs to achieve what he has done in boxing.
If you read anything a Floyd Fanboy writes or puts on a YouTube video it’s usually a video hating on Manny Pacquiao, accusing him of steroids, making up reasons why Manny beats bigger guys, or trying to play matchmaker for Manny Pacquiao.
After Manny beat up the 165 pound Antonio Margarito and weighed only 148 pounds doing it, they said they were not impressed and wanted Manny to stop ducking the giant 6 foot 2 Paul Williams. Now that Paul Williams got knocked out they want Manny to fight the much bigger middleweight champ Sergio Martinez a guy who has to cut from 180 pounds to make 160. Manny has already stated he will not go up anymore weight classes and will return to welterweight because of how much bigger Margarito was compared to him and how he felt the punches.
Sergio Martinez even said in a post fight interview after knocking out Paul Williams that he will not fight Manny Pacquiao because it wouldn’t be fair, it would be a mismatch because Manny is too small. Martinez, however, called out Floyd Mayweather Jr. because Floyd mentioned Martinez as a possible opponent and Floyd is closer to Martinez height and size, and Martinez said he would do the Olympic style drug testing.
Where are the Floyd Mayweather Fanboys now? Martinez just called out Floyd Mayweather Jr., but instead they are more focused on matchmaking Manny Pacquiao with Sergio Martinez. Makes sense when you use Mayweather logic.

I am an avid fan of boxing and video games. My first fight of memory was watching Prince Naseem Hamed destroy Kevin Kelly. I enjoy all aspects of the sport. My favorite current boxer is Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. My favorite boxing match is Diego Corrales vs. Jose Luis Castillo 1. I love watching boxing on Pay-Per-View more than being there live because you can really enjoy and watch the action from the best view.
