can you imagine how many times he has wanted to quit for good as amatuer and pro and it still isnt good enough for some people, then everytime he comes back its not good enough the question is when does it end.
those of you who have boxed just know how difficult it is to do this and stay in the gym training twice a day especially when you are in the upper echelon of the game and with sio many outside distractions from women to drink you name it he avoided that and it takes something special in a man to cut it out.
Its not just his dedication his skill or his great mind i admire its the fact that i see a part myself in him to a certain extent, sometimes when something happens i almost know what he is doing/going to do and aot of the times it comes off, and knowing him as i think his next move he knows he has a challenge infront of him but he is stubborn and will do it at his own accord he knows that pac is a dangerous opponent but he is soaking everything up letting the tabloids write all the **** abut him saying he is scared a ***** etc as he soaking it up and his bck against the wall and it is motivating him so much as when you have been doing one thing your whole life you just need that extra umph. when he feels that he has enough fire he will go and conquer his persoanl demons.
He is a true inspiration
You cant really question Mayweather's professionalism, thats true.
On being criticized though, I dont think Mayweather can moan about a perception he has cultivated with his own actions, a perception he himself admits, has made him a lot of money, cause as he says, whether you love me or hate me, as long as you pay money to see me, thats all that counts. Im not sure you can act the way Mayweather does to garner more attention in an effort to invoke a reaction, good or bad, to make more money, then claim to be a victim of circumstances, that your being held to a higher a standard, not when you are essentially setting the standard.
Mayweather is the type to moan about not getting props for the Marquez win, but will probably not HL what he pulled at the weigh in to gain more of an advantage over an opponent he already had a considerable physical advantage over. I dont mean to be negative, but I must admit, it does cheese me off when he plays the persecution card.
