Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. actually a great boxer that some say he is? I’d say no…

I’ve warned ya plenty of times not to get too excited about that “Floyd vs. Manny Pac” fight didn’t I? Just because two boxing icons get together doesn’t necessarily mean it’s gonna be a great fight and like I predicted, it turned out that it wasn’t. Floyd predictably victorious again with his usual 12 round unanimous decision. I didn’t watch the fight but I already saw how it was going to go down. Floyd just holding his fists in the air trying to avoid to get hit. I’ve read from comments from those who saw the fight that Floyd ran around the ring like a baby. There is always this big debate on whether or not Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a great boxer or not. Is he really?

In my opinion, no. I think he’s the biggest fraud in the history of sports. The reason so many hate this guy is not because of his cocky and arrogant attitude… people hates him ’cause he doesn’t actually fight and he gets rich off of it anyways. How messed up is that, ya know? I don’t think Floyd actually knows how to fight well at all. All he does is point and run. Never gives his opponent a chance to hit him no matter what.

Yes, Floyd Jr. is cocky, arrogant and a bit egotistical just like Muhammad Ali and Iron Mike was but hey… at least Ali and Tyson were real fighters while Floyd Jr. doesn’t do anything in the ring. While Floyd didn’t do a hell of a lot in the ring last night… Manny should also get the blame ’cause he did all he could to avoid getting hit too. They both delivered horrible performances.

People claim that nobody cares about boxing anymore but not from what I see. Boxing seems to be alive and well. People continue to watch boxing ’cause I think the only reason is that people are desperate to see Floyd lose. Everyone is dying to see Floyd lose the streak which is why everybody keeps watching. Floyd Jr. vs. Manny Pac… an over hyped fight and yet everyone is predictably disappointed. You’d think? When it comes to Floyd Mayweather Jr., you should expect a predictable and boring fight.

Floyd is a cheater and a fraud. If you want Floyd to stop getting rich… then do yourself a favor and stop watching his fights would be a good start. Whether you agree with it or not, we’re all helping him get rich by buying the ppvs and people buy tickets to his fights live. That’s how fighters get their money from the fans.

I don’t think Floyd actually cares about boxing or the fans, it’s pretty clear that money is all he cares about.

If Floyd actually fought in the ring, do you think he would be undefeated? No. Floyd Jr. fans would defend him and make claims that he’s a “good thinker” and has good skill. If Floyd did some real fighting, I’m sure he would have lost a lot with TKO’s or KO’s. His career would have been over if he actually tried to fight.

Like most people, I can’t stand Floyd Mayweather Jr. myself. I can’t wait for that idiot to retire so boxing can be more interesting again.

I’m glad I didn’t watch the ppv last night. What did I watch last night instead? I re-watched the first “Avengers” movie on BluRay ’cause I’m planning on seeing “Age of Ultron” in theater later this week.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is finally on!!!

What took them so long for these two to finally get this fight on? My guess are huge egos and money pretty much.

It’s great that Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pac is finally happening. While this is gonna be a huge fight and will be over hyped, that still doesn’t mean it’s gonna be a great fight. It could end up being the same boring 12 rounds like you would typically see in a Mayweather fight. Hopefully Manny has what it takes to beat his ass. It’s time to end Mayweather’s undefeated streak and I think Manny might have what it takes. Hopefully Manny won’t be too afraid of him and gives Mayweather a bloody face and knock his ass out!!!

No matter how tough Manny is, Floyd is still gonna do whatever it takes to be victorious. So don’t be surprised if Floyd still remains undefeated after this fight.

I hope Manny beats him and praying.

Will I watch it? I’m thinking about it but if I did I would like to watch it with other people so others can help ship in for the ppv ’cause I’m sure they’re gonna charge like 70 or 80 dollars or more for this ppv fight. Either that or maybe I could watch this fight at a local sports bar that will be showing it. This fight is gonna be huge, though. Gonna be just as big as the Superbowl and Wrestlemania.

I’m glad this fight is finally on, though. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

Manny Pac. vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. to happen on May 2nd after all???

Floyd Mayweather Jr. publicly challenged Manny Pac and it looks like Manny Pac responded to his challenge by agreeing to terms for a May 2nd bout. Manny Pac gave what Floyd wanted and so far Floyd have not responded.

http://espn.go.com/boxing/story/_/id/12164550/manny-pacquiao-agrees-terms-fight-floyd-mayweather

We’ll see if Floyd “The Cowardly” Jr. will respond.

Will the fight happen on May 2nd? I would try to watch it if it does but once again, this still doesn’t mean it’ll be a great fight. It could be the same boring 12 rounds with Floyd Jr. still remaining undefeated.

Report: And Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s opponent for May 5th is…

Miguel Cotto.

Manny Pac rejected Floyd’s challenge again, but my question is, why won’t Manny fight Floyd? Why is boxing keeping these two away from each other? Manny shouldn’t be afraid to fight Floyd and I’m sure Floyd is calling Manny a coward right now.

Miguel Cotto looks like a pretty tough dude. Looking at his record, he only has two losses. Hopefully, Miguel has what it takes to end Floyd’s undefeated streak. I doubt Miguel will beat Floyd ’cause it will probably be another victory for Floyd again. Floyd will figure out a way to beat him.

I won’t be watching this fight ’cause I don’t watch boxing anymore as much as I used to. If Miguel can actually beat Floyd, that would be amazing but I don’t think it’ll happen.

Even though I don’t watch boxing anymore, I still like the sport and still respect it.

BREAKING NEWS: Sly is in the Boxing Hall of Fame! WOW!!!!!

Well I never saw this one coming!!! A Hollywood actor in the Boxing All of Fame? Is this for real? Yes it is, and the proof is right here! 🙂 Sly must be thrilled to be inducted in the same year as Mike Tyson! So you ask, how can a Hollywood actor be inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame, when he’s not even a real life boxer but an actor? Well the answer is simple he contributed to a lot of it in boxing. He helped promote boxing and helped make it to what it is today. With the 6 Rocky films he has done and, “The Contender”, TV show he did, that’s good enough for being eligible to the Hall of Fame. This blog, here, does a good job explaining how Sly made it.

Some may wonder why Sly never became a real life professional fighter in his past, but instead he does it in the movies. I think the reason is, he once said over at “Aint It Cool News” during one of his Q&A’s, he admitted he wouldn’t be good at it for real, so he did it for the big screen instead. He does know some boxing obviously as he has been trained for it for the movies. So he knows a lot about it. Sly not a real life boxer? I would say, of course he is. Congratulations to Sly, and I’m just very happy for him, and it’s very well deserved! Whether you agree with it or not, Sly is a huge part of boxing and that’s why he got in! Seriously, I had a huge smile on my face when I heard this news! 🙂

Thought: James Toney vs. Randy Couture prediction…

I have been following this James Toney vs. Randy Couture feud online, and I must say, it’s even funnier than the Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin feud. Boxing legend James Toney has been signed to UFC to fight Randy Couture. James Toney has been obsessed with wanting to fight Randy Couture for a long time and Dana White gave him what he wanted. James Toney is a BOXER. Not a mixed martial artist. I repeat, a BOXER. Randy Couture has YEARS of mixed martial arts experience.

My opinion, that I think James Toney is challenging the wrong guy. Randy Couture would fucking destroy Toney. Toney might be able to throw a few hard punches at Randy, yes, but the fight will be over quickly once Toney gets a takedown by Couture, and Couture will give him the chokehold to end the fight. Randy Couture is well known for the chokehold. Randy Couture may seem like a nice, friendly and down to earth guy, but in reality, Randy is a monster when it comes to fighting.

Toney thinks he will beat Couture, which is hilarious. Toney thinks he will be successful in UFC. That’s how boxers are, delusional and they have huge egos as well. Why did Dana White agree to sign Toney even if Toney don’t have much MMA experience? I bet the only reason is to help PPV buyrates. Dana didn’t sign Toney because Toney is talented.

So of course, my money on who to win this fight is Randy Couture. Randy is a favorite fighter of mine and looking forward to seeing him fight again.

UFC 118 looks like a great card. I’m looking forward to seeing Edgar vs. Penn again too.

Brock will watch the Mayweather vs. Marquez fight tonight on PPV, instead of UFC 103…

I thought about watching tonight’s “UFC 103” ppv, but then I thought….nah, I think I’m going to watch the HBO boxing ppv tonight instead. The hyped “Mayweather vs. Marquez” fight is tonight and I’m very curious about it.

I’m not much of a boxing fan either.

Shall be an interesting boxing fight, and I think Mayweather is going to lose.
