    Age.

    Floyd would have likely won anyway but that fight was a sham. It was not the fight we wanted to see when both where in their prime. Pac was stylistically way more gone.

    It's called ring generalship. It was PBF's job to dictate the pace and fight his fight, it was Pac's job to not let that happen and make PBF fight his fight and he failed miserably. Blame Pac for not being good enough to get it done. Hell even Maidana forced PBF to fight his style of fight at times Pac didn't.

    :llorona::llorona::llorona:

    You're pathetic you cry more than a baby. Grow up! PBF beat Canelo Pac Mosley Cotto Guerrero and Pac in the last decade all of which were top 10 P4P fighters with the exception of Cotto who will be a HOF fighter when he fought them. It's not how long you fought in the decade dummy it's what you did during the decade.:deal: PBF fighter of the Decade Deal with it.:wave:

    Yep. It is what it is.

    Looking at it objectively, this is exactly what happened.

    More gone? But now he's back?

    Styles make fights. Manny did not have the tools to beat Floyd. He got outboxed.

    Mayweather was a boxing enigma who nobody ever really figured out. I know guys had moments of success which encouraged the haters but Floyd's defense, command of distance and ring generalship were tough to beat.

    He was a gym rat and had great boxing endurance. As he moved up in weight he did not have great knockout power but he punched sharp and accurate enough to keep his opponents honest.

    Not having the same effective punching power as you move up in weight is normal, conventional boxing wisdom. It's the sign of a natural fighter.

    Give credit where credit is due. Floyd was a special talent. The amount of work Floyd put in in the gym to gain those kinds of skills should be respected.

    Absolute nonsense, you're talking rubbish my friend.

    Money does not determine fight strategy, style or anything else.


    I'm assuming you are expecting Fury to come out and stand toe to toe with Wilder? Because Fury is being paid a lot of money.

    I predict You're going to be very disappointed LOL



    I know for a fact deep down you don't expect a defensive slick boxer to stand there with any opponent, you fight to your strengths.

    What about the old saying "styles make fights"..? should we scrap that and have "forget styles, it doesn't matter, stand there and bang"?

    I'm assuming Pacquaio always stood there, toes gripping the canvas and banged with every opponent? Didn't use footwork, angles, brain cells.

    No, he didn't did, Pacquaio boxed when he had to box and fought when he had to fight.



    With respect, you just posted a foolish post with foolish attitude and you come across as delusional and bitter.

    Too goddamn many selfies with burger king and kimmel! Too much ****ing smiling and having a good time during the fight. Whole fight was a let down. Floyd is too big and good for Manny and Manny lacked the influence to force a more competitive catch weight. Still not gonna buy a rematch, I'm not lining up to pay another hundred bucks to watch a mismatch what now over a decade past prime? The shoulder thing doesn't work for me. If shoulder was injured, postpone the fight, but he couldn't walk away from the payday and all the fans suffered with Manny smiling between every round all the way to the bank. Even after Mannys performance against head case Thurman I don't really give him a chance against UFC bum boxer Mayweather.

    ROFLMAO!! Floyd NEVER fought Maidana all he did was run & hold &:llorona::llorona::llorona: like a baby after saying " Maidana bullied me, roughed me up & beat me up but the ref did nothing to stop him,it wasnt fair" :llorona::llorona:. He was used to Joe Cortez protecting him. Like I said Floyd CANNOT FIGHT!!!like a man. :gaydude: But the Vegas judges still protected him giving him a decision he did not deserve:eaea::eaea::eaea: Doesnt Floyd realise this is the Fight Game not Ballet Class

    STFU! Troll PBF won the fight in fact he beat Maidana 2x. It's so funny you like how Weeks called PBF-Maidana but cried like a ***** when Weeks called Ward-Kovalev 2 and also cried about how the ref let Horn rough up Pac. You have no credibility and are a hypocrite log off.

    Floyd ran, held and bent below the waist. All there is to it.

    If you’re longer and taller, how is the shorter guy suppose to get you? Well you grab him when he gets inside and pop him from the outside.

    How do you initiate a clinch if he comes in with a flurry, you bend below the waist.

    That’s all.

    The video is right there no debate about it

    Floyd exposed the rules of boxing and leniency of the refs on holding, bending below the waist and running to his advantage and won 116-112 in Vegas with hometown judges.

    He didn't cheat, it didn't happen. PBF looked the way he always looked dummy. He wasn't on PEDS like you claim he was. Did he throw 100 punches a round? Did he all of a sudden have great punching power? No! He looked the same but only like shell of his former self but that was still good enough to be able to outbox and school Pac who had no clue as to how to deal with PBF's ability to control range and dictate distance on him PBF fought his fight Pac didn't fight his, Ring generalship 101 old fool.:deal: You're a excuse making crybaby troll who knows nothing about boxing.

    Answer the question Coward !!!!!!! Why did Floyd need to secretly receive an illegal 750 ml of saline in his own home ?? If it wasnt for Thomas Hauser busting him no one would have been the wiser would they but USADA & the NSAC knew all about it . I'm waiting Pimp be a man

    I already have you obsessive loon. You just didn't like my answer. Why are you still crying 5 years later about a fight that wasn't close?

    One trick Pony Pacy does not beat FMJ at ANY weight at ANY time in their respective careers......as a matter of fact, if they would have fought earlier there would have been a good chance that Pac would have been ko'ed because he reckless lunged in over and over......if blown up flyweight Mexican Brawler with a chin who never ever was a puncher can face planT Pacy for the 100 count so can Mayweather with a timed right. Fact.

    If the same Mexican with a chin would have put his ego in check and boxed in all his fight with Pac and boxed instead of brawled like he did in the first after the knock downs he would have won every single fight......

    If you you go life and death with marquez multiple times you will never ever beat FMJ.

    118-110.......it exposed Pac as a gun shy fighter, lol, is not Mayweather featherfisted ?......who could never figure out to mount a effective offense while dead afraid getting countered by said "Featherfist", lol...."angles" "lights out power" "amazing combos" "iron chin" and all the other associated non sense the Pac huggers used to spout out before the fight happened ......meant jack.........after all , FMJ , while old, was not a shot , catch weight, weight drained washed up fighter who just got a career beating in his previous fight until Pacy got a hold of him.....levels . levels.

    On a side note, Cotto was ready to go at Junior Middle for a Pac rematch.....but Pac/Roach flat out declined and demanded a catch weight again while happily fighting the Brick cheating punch bag Margobumo.....

    118-110...it never gets old.
