Floyd Mayweather Jr barely beat Oscar De La Hoya winning a split decision. Ricky Hatton gave Mayweather all kinds of problems for 8 rounds. Mayweather finally figured out Hatton and stopped him in the 10th round. Mosley almost knocked out Mayweather in the early rounds, to his credit Mosley kept going forward chasing Mayweather but eventually loss in a unanimous decision.
Oscar De La Hoya was totally obliterated and annihilated by Manny Pacquiao. It was such a lopsided fight that Oscar quit on his stool after the 8th round. It took Manny Pacquiao less than one round to solve Ricky Hatton. After being knocked down twice in the first round, Ricky Hatton was knocked out by Manny Pacquiao in the second. The knockout was so devastating that it was awarded the “Knock Out of the Year,” by Ring Magazine. Hatton has not fought since. For only the third time in his entire career, Shane Mosley was knocked down by Pacquiao with what he said is the hardest punch he has been hit with. The punch was so powerful that the future Hall of Fame professional fighter was fighting scared the rest of the fight and loss every round.
Mayweather calls it his “leftovers.” It’s also Mayweather’s way of squirming out from fighting former Pacquiao opponents like Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. When Pacquiao takes on opponents that Mayweather has previously fought, he wants to send Mayweather a message.
“Anything you can do, I can do better. I’m better than you will ever be. I am the best fighter of this era, I own you. Prove me wrong, I dare you! If you’re not going to fight me, I will continue to prove my point by obliterating not only those you struggled with but also the ones you ducked like Cotto and Margarito.”
On November 12th, Pacquiao will once again be sending another message to Floyd Mayweather. Pacquiao was struggling with his weight when he was fighting at 126 and at 130 pounds, according to his trainer Freddie Roach. The two fights between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez were at 126 and 130 pounds.
The contracted weight between Juan Marquez and Floyd Mayweather was slated at 144 pounds. Mayweather chose to cheat on the scales and weighed in 2 pounds over 144 pounds. By fight time Mayweather looked to be 15 pounds bigger, he refused a request by HBO to be weighed at fight time.
Pacquiao’s message to Mayweather on November 7 will be clear. It should look like this: “I will fight Marquez at the same weight that you fought him. I won’t come in with a 2 pound weight advantage like the one you did over him. And I will show you what a Welterweight is supposed to do against a Lightweight. You celebrated your win over Marquez as if you won the lotto, on November 12th I will again show you that anything you do I can do much better. Watch me, Floyd Sinclair!”
As of this date, it looks like Pacquiao can also best Mayweather in the court of law. Manny has Mayweather running and hiding from the law. Could the Victor Ortiz fight be just a ruse. Mayweather did use it as an excuse to postpone the deposition. It didn’t work, the judge ordered the deposition to go as scheduled. Mayweather was a no show for this past Friday.
Pacquiao also is better than Mayweather at attaining and having endorsements, global reach, investments, family life, personal life, the law, boxing titles, support of his people, famous and powerful friends, and overall the more accomplished person as a whole. It’s not even a contest.
AMERICA LOVES WINNERS AND RAGS TO RICHES STORY. Is it a wonder why the Americans love Pacquiao more than Mayweather?
