Default Let's not forget Floyd cheated against JMM

He came in overweight at the official weigh in, then refused completely to weigh in at all on the day of the fight. He was probably above the middleweight limit when he stepped into the ring to fight a guy that struggled to get above 140.
When the deal was done to fight Mayweather, he had about two months to get ready to fight two weight classes above anything he'd ever fought at before. And he'd only fought at 135 twice. Then he ended fighting a guy that came in as a middleweight.

The two fights aren't comparable. Against Pac, he had 5 months to train and was already in shape because of his preparation for Ramos.

Oh yeah so he comes in at 150 against a guy at 164 but weighs over 160 against a 148 pound guy

Thats complete bullshit. Mayweather has never had a fight night weight above 150, and walks around at about 152-153.

Manny got his ass kicked, deal with it.

Because he doesn't have to and hasn't since Baldomir I don't think.

Do you remember what his weight was in the weigh in a month out from fighting Ortiz?

Mayweather is a small welterweight, I'm not sure why people try and dispute that.

Floyd used the weight to **** with Marquez and their teams head and they fell for it, the look of what did I get myself into on Marquez face after seeing the scale says it all, I'm sure if Floyd got completely naked he would have weighed in at 144, him not even trying to simply disrobe or simply use the rest room indicated Floyd was being very tatical in his plan, not to mention Floyd not doing same day weigh in's when he was probably around 150 pounds, trying to lead Marquez and his team that they really bigger than they truly were, to throw off the strategy, which was to come forward and rough Floyd up, which Marquez although being shutout was very effective at times during the fight

Floyd I dont think has ever weighed 160! Even when he was "retired"!

Also,If you think that 2lbs was the reason Floyd schooled Marquez, well you dont know boxing very well.

Better than believing Floyd came in the ring at 165 pounds.
