Hahaha! I feel ya homie. LA really hates him. I personally respect him though. I'd rather hang with him than Kobe. Same goes for Pac. I can't imagine chillin with the lights of Divas like Kobe and Floyd

Boxers have a deeper understanding of the sweet science so I would guess that there are many who pick Floyd over PAC simply b/c it's more likely a pure boxer beats a brawler 9 times out of 10. But PAc is much more than a brawler and Floyd knows that. Which is why it's taken this long for him to come to the decision that he will fight Manny.

Actually.....Most who have spoken out on the match up, side with PAC. And most who side with PAC have greater reputations in the sport than the ones who are picking Floyd.

I'm picking PAC simply b/c it seems as though Floyd has some concern about what Manny brings to the table. But make no mistake about it......From a surface level Floyd should win and I would have picked him to win had it not been for all the telling signs that he wasn't sure of it. Floyd who lacks confidence is not the same Floyd whom we all expect to show up on fight night.

One of the biggest bullshit post that have been made on ESb. Who the **** do you think you're fooling here? Most boxers big names, little names pick PBF to beat Pac and there have been several threads here posted about it. And it's one of the many reasons why PBF is the betting favorite in the fight. Try telling this bullshit to guys over at Pacland who will believe that shit, cuz around here we know better.

I didn't say BIG NAMES kid... I said boxers with a stronger rep...meaning guys who have paid their dues and solidified their standing in boxing history... Guys like Ray Leonard, Hagler, Holy, Holmes, Foreman....among others.

Guys like Paulie, Kermit and Juan Diaz have sided or picked Floyd to win.... There are better boxers like JMM, DLH and Ricky Hatton who all picked Floyd as well but you get the point.

And I merely stated "THOSE WHO HAVE SPOKEN OUT ON THIS SUBJECT"....not ALL boxers in general. I have a feeling that when this fight gets closer to being made and more boxers talk about the outcome it will be a very close even split for both PAC and Floyd....maybe even a slight edge for Floyd given that the name of the game is "BOXING".

Relax....

Most boxers and experts picked DeLa Hoya to beat Pacquiao.

You know, it's a nice idea, and I can see the theory, but Mayweather is very much like Wlad in this equation.

Bigger, better, with all the advantages.

Truth is, he'd probably do something pretty similar to Manny as what Haye got.

Just shut him out
You're a joke if you actually believe Mayweather has all of the advantages .

I'd like to know what Manny does, if what he usually does, is't working, cause I dont see many dimensions to Manny when he's on the front foot, that and the fact Mayweather can do a lot more things, has more ways he can fight, means I have to give it to Floyd.


Manny is too short, lacks the jab, and the ability to maintain a good defense whilst pressuring his opponent, that is the basics of why he wont beat Mayweather imo.

Are you talking about Pacquiao taking 2 years to agree to the testing????
