On Cinco De Mayo weekend, the world will understand why Floyd Mayweather is the best pure boxer in the world because on that day he will put a beating on Manny Pacquiao. May 2 will go down in history as one of Mayweather’s most lopsided beatings in his career.
I always laugh when I hear so many of the Filipino workers I run into at my job telling me that Pacquiao will knockout Mayweather. You can tell these guys don’t watch boxing at all and only support Pacquiao because he is Filipino.
When I respond to these same Pacquiao fans who tell me he will KO Mayweather, I tell them how can he do that when Juan Manuel Marquez lost to Floyd but knocked Manny out cold. If Marquez who is a much more intelligent boxer than Pacquiao couldn’t beat Floyd how can Manny? Their response is pure ignorance, they tell me “Well that is because Marquez was on steroids so he had a Hulk punch because he worked with Angel “Memo” Heredia” or “that was a lucky punch.”
That punch Juan Manuel Marquez landed flush on Manny Pacquiao’s chin was not lucky, that was a well timed classic right hand counter that he landed many times on Pacquiao, he cannot avoid right hands and has horrible defense. Just accept the facts, Pacquiao is not a great fighter, he has no defense for the right hand, and Marquez is better than him and so is Floyd Mayweather. Don’t accuse Marquez of taking steroids when you have no proof, he has passed all of the drug tests, and it makes you look bad especially after Pacquiao denied random Olympic testing for years. So don’t throw stones if you didn’t want those stones thrown at your fighter.
For anyone reading this that believes Manny Pacquiao will beat Floyd Mayweather, answer the following, if he couldn’t convincingly beat Marquez after 4 tries, what makes you think he can beat the best counter puncher and defensive fighter of our Era?
