    Explains why Calzaghe chose to spend his career over in England fighting on home turf. He's smart. Fight easy opponents and become very very rich. Rather than come to America and risk losing.

    man that fight was a schooling, no other word for it. i watched with 6 hardcore pac fans(two of them active fighters) and none of us thought it was close.

    In years, people will have him 10-15, no doubts about it, 0.

    25-0 in world title fights, 48-0, beat ATGS/HOFS throughout his career, 5 weight undefeated world champion.

    Mayweather only started the low risk, high reward career approach after the Cotto fight. Hence, Ortiz, Guerrero, Canelo, Maidana. Pacquiao was risky and I'm proud he fought him. Like he said, "180 mill in 1 hr? I couldn't say no."

    There is when one person repeatedly throws the same **** time and time again, tried boxing talk, tried simply calling out the troll, but maybe fat shaming her makes perfect sense to get her to **** off.

    Oh I see, Canelo Alvarez, an undefeated big puncher who people thought would give Floyd a serious challenge wasn't a risk.

    And Maidana, who had just knocked out Broner, who was seen by many as being "The next generation of Floyd" wasn't seen as a risk.

    Not to mention that despite anyone with a brain seeing Ortiz was a stupid fighter who would never amount to much, he was seen as a big risk at the time for Floyd and someone that Golden Boy Promotions touted as "the next biggest fighter"

    Pacquaio was less of a risk than Alvarez and less of a risk than the Maidana rematch. You're just too stupid to see.

    Yup.. like boxing against someone, the jab isn't working, you go to the straight right, if that won't hit home, you go to the body.

    And what a lot of body she has.

    How you even know that, I don't wanna know.

    I agree w a lot of what she posts though. Think the pacquiao hate has shifted to overdrive on here recently and people are going overboard and somewhat being unfair to him. But it is what it is. Happens after every big fight.

    Maidana wasn't seen as a risk, let's be real, he did way better than most of us expected him to do, but being a dirty little b1tch highly contributed to that. I doubt many people saw Broner as the next mayweather after the Ponce/Paulie fight either.
    Maidana was clearly a risk, and far better than Pac, but credibility wise he wasn't proven to give Floyd any trouble, and was seen as a bad fight to the majority of boxing fans.

    I'm not gonna get into a nationalistic debate about where the "holy land" of boxing is. But it's popular opinion that the best competition was in the states when cazaghe was making his run. And Roy Jones was universally recognized as the #1 P4P and King of boxing. He didn't have to go anywhere. Cazaghe, I'm a hater, I admit it, but that aside, I see why he did what he did. But he should've stepped up sooner. His break out fight to the American public was against Peter Manfredo lol

    It's more so his fans, the absolute denial and the fact that no one stands up and gives any credit to Floyd when he takes on these fights. That makes people hate the fighter, especially when in the weeks before the fight, Pacquaio was apparently going to be too fast and too strong for an aged Floyd.

    The weeks after the fight? An aged Pacquaio can't compete with Floyd, and Floyd cherry picked by waiting so long to make the fight.
