Floyd’s camp or rather his fans, I should say, is starting to get irritated with the result of the impending bout (not yet official) between the two Pound 4 Pound kings of the boxing world, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. on March 13, 2010 at still undecided venue.
According to them, Floyd will not get full credit even if he handed Pacquiao his 4th defeat on the basis that the Pacman is much smaller guy, a one dimensional boxer who has no defense against the skillful Mayweather.
The sweet science of boxing , according to them, is only for those fighter who can box, not for the slugger type such as Pacquiao. There is little possibility that Floyd will lose the fight and the fans are already cooking some excuses to diminish his victory.
In the first place, what could Mayweather achieve by beating the smaller man? Did he get credit by beating smaller Marquez? What about the smaller Hatton? He should have fought bigger guys like Mosley, Williams, Cotto, or Margarito years ago!
Why the smaller Pacquiao have beaten the bigger Cotto ahead than Floyd.
Both Cotto and Floyd are in the Welterweights too long while Pacquiao is still fighting at Super-Featherweight, two years ago. Well, if that is what Floyd’s fan is worried about, we can’t blame them. Floyd had made himself hated outside his skills. Love him or hate him, sure he can sell the fight. Many would want to see him lose.
Win or Lose, Pacquiao might really get the credit by just going toe-to-toe with the elusive Mayweather, while Floyd would be hated more by running around the ring.
FIGHT SHOULD THEY BE FOR THE GLORY AND LEGACY.
