5 Reasons Why Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will Defeat Manny Pacquiao

5 Reasons Why Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will Defeat Manny Pacquiao

I’m just sitting back with my feet kicked up on my desk, snacking on plantain chips with sea salt and thinking about the battle that’s going to jump off in 5 days.

I’m so amped it’s crazy. Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. will face Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao in the ring this Saturday May 2nd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. If you haven’t heard about this fight then maybe you’ve been living under a rock or something. It’s being dubbed as the biggest fight ever. I’m not sure about it being the biggest fight ever and I really don’t care one way or the other. All I know is that I’ve been anticipating seeing these two champions in the ring for a very long time and now that it’s finally going to happen, I’m really excited.

Now, the reason for my excitement is because I’m a huge boxing fan. I’ve been one ever since I was a kid. If you guys really want to know the truth, I got mad boxing skills myself. So, I can definitely relate to Mayweather’s undefeated streak because in the streets I’m 21-0. My record extends all the way back to elementary school. Believe that!

Anyway, I’ve been keeping up with everything leading up to this fight. I’ve been watching a lot of videos, listening to different boxing commentaries from legends who are respected in the sport and I’ve also been reading some ridiculous debates online as well. A lot of these people who are popping off on social media aren’t even true boxing fans. For instance, if you ask them if they know who Marvin Hagler is they’ll probably tell you he was the black guy from the mystery television series, Spencer: For Hire or something. My bad, that’s going back way too far but anyway I’ll just put it like this, they don’t know sh*t! And some of these nuts are rooting for Pacquiao just because he’s the lighter fighter. Now that ridiculous, but when you think about it’s sort of racist. So what, I’m done discussing the crazies.

Here are the 5 Reasons Why Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will Defeat Manny Pacquiao:

#5 Mayweather has the Illest Training Routine
Floyd trains specifically for his opponent and he always studies and knows his opponent. No one in the sport of boxing trains harder than Floyd Mayweather Jr. His famous quote, “Hard work, dedication!” says it all. And it’s not just talk, he backs it up by keeping himself in condition at all times. Anyone who has ever witnessed one of Floyd’s training sessions will tell you that his training routine is amazing and that it’s something they’ve never seen before in their life. Have you ever seen Floyd fatigued in a fight?

#4 Mayweather’s Ability to Remain Composed and Make Adjustments
Floyd has only been rocked once in his career and that rocking came by way of a right cross delivered by former three-division world champion Sugar Shane Mosley. After being hurt for a moment the pound-for-pound king quickly recovered and continue to outbox Mosley for the rest of the fight. Floyd also got caught several times in his two bouts with Marcos Maidana but he never showed any signs of panic and he received victories in both fights.

#3 Mayweather’s Speed
Floyd’s phenomenal speed has allowed him to be able to pick his opponents apart with swift accurate punches throughout his career. Although he is older and is probably past his peak I still believe that it’s that speed that he’ll use from his arsenal to counter and out punch Manny for the win Saturday night.

#2 Mayweather’s Defense
Floyd is the master of defense. No one has witnessed a defense such as Mayweather’s defense in the sport of boxing. Shoulder roll, shoulder roll! Many have tried to duplicate it but no one can perfect it. And that’s not all. Floyd have perfected his defensive skills by working and developing his timing, reflexes and his ability to dodge his opponent’s punches. His defense is one of the main reasons he’s never touched the canvas.

#1 Mayweather’s Boxing Talent
There’s a lot of skillful boxers in the sport and then there’s the talented. Floyd Mayweather Jr. happens to be one of the most extremely talented boxers in the history of the sport. Floyd has said himself that he has “God given talent.” He will be using all of his skills and talent to pull off an impressive win against his most dangerous opponent come Saturday night.

You guys can continue to place your bets and make all of the predictions you want, regardless what you think I just dropped the 5 reasons why Floyd will end up being the victor of the “Fight of the Century!” Oh yeah, speaking of bets, I heard that Diddy and Mark Wahlberg bet $250,000 on the fight. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of other celebs betting on the fight. I wonder who T.I. is rooting for.

  1. To the big headed 21-0 “street fighter” ! You are an idiot and based on what you explained you obviously don’t know shyt about boxing but speaks a nice game! Floyd’s training routines is nowhere close to manny’s. Have you seen their side by side training routine?? Floyd’s speed is no where close to manny’s neither. Floyd has trouble with southpaws! No need to explain more why this a moron! I’ll call this bluff, mr. 21-0 , if you see this Holla at ya boi and let’s see your so called street credibility and let me get that friendly fade….

      • I think you need to let that grown man speak for himself! Don’t ? Another man’s name when you too pooh butt to put your own! #getoffgayboyfloydsnuts

    • Why you mad, AlleyPuss? Why you mad over another man’s opinion? Don’t
      answer that… I really don’t give a shit. I think I’m going to decline
      your challenge, my record is impressive enough (21-0) and besides I
      don’t do internet beefs. I actually feel stupid for even responding
      to you. And dude, don’t underestimate the friendly fade…

  2. Manny Pacquiao is a Filipino pride, being humble and being charitable to the needy people is very difficult to find to a rich person and because he came from a poor family he knew the feelings of poor people and whatever he got he is very much willing to share it to whoever needs it. Filipinos became well-known to other countries, because of Manny Pacquiao so we should thank him for bringing so much pride to our country. Manny Pacquiao is a great boxer even if he win or loose his fight with Floyd Mayweather.
