I’m getting sick and tired of Floyd Mayweather Jr and his song and dance. Money Mayweather is so predictable it’s not even funny. Floyd is giving out interviews to Fight Hype on how eager he is to fight Manny Pacquiao and how everyone hates his guts and all the same whiny crybaby stuff we are used to with him, but the only reason he is so anxious to fight Manny Pacquiao now is because of how human Manny looked against Juan Manuel Marquez.
Floyd told Fight Hype that Manny Pacquiao lost to Juan Manuel Marquez, well now I guess is a better time than ever for Floyd to fight Manny since he believes in his mind that he has all the advantages after Manny had a very close fight with Marquez and many people believe the Pacman is slowing down.
Mayweather said he was smart, maybe he should have said sly and deceiving. When Floyd says he is smart that means he knows how to cherry pick his opponent at the right time while benefiting him financially. We must remember Floyd is his own boss so he makes all his own decisions, Manny Pacquiao isn’t his own boss and he just fights whoever Bob Arum puts in front of him. People calling Pacman a cherry picker are wrong, he will actually fight anyone, Floyd on the other hand is his own boss and cherry picks his own fights nobody can tell him what to do or how to do it.
I will keep it short and simple, Floyd’s adviser Leonard Ellerbe announced that Floyd would fight on May 5, 2012 just days before Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez III, he didn’t mention Manny Pacquiao by name but said “The little fella”, this was done to fool the public and keep Floyd’s name out there, and it was also a back out for Floyd just in case Manny Pacquiao destroyed Juan Manuel Marquez and didn’t look shot yet so Floyd would say he never said he was fighting Pacquiao but another “little fella” like Marcos Maidana or Erik Morales instead. Manny didn’t look great against Marquez and many people watching actually felt Pacquiao lost or had it a draw, so after Floyd watched the fight on replay, Floyd and his team are now more aggressive in pursuing the Pacquiao fight.
Floyd saw Manny as being weak and vulnerable against a guy coming up from lightweight and a guy that Floyd dominated unanimously. Now Floyd wants everyone to know he is willing to sign the contract right away. Floyd isn’t really scared of Pacquiao, but he is more obsessed with perfection and being undefeated because that’s the only thing he has to make himself feel superior to anyone else, if he loses that he feels worthless like he isn’t a superior human being and just a regular boxer. When you deal with braggarts like Floyd they are basically insecure people and have to make it known to the world about how great they really are because they need reassurance and love, just like how Floyd keeps mentioning how jealous he is of a non-American boxer named Manny Pacquiao getting more love in America than he does. People in general regardless of race cannot stand arrogant people who think they are better than everyone else. Floyd wants to be accepted badly, but he has no clue that the answer is simple, just fight top guys in their prime without stipulations and win, lose or draw you would have gained the public’s admiration.

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.
