Aftermath of Pacquaio – Mayweather

I remember saying BSP loves Floyd M. Mayweather, Jr. Well, at least we did then.

I’m reading all kinds of nonsense, now that “Money” Mayweather humbled Manny Pacquaio. Stuff like Floyd got on his bike; Floyd “ran” from Pacquaio, etc.

Bottom line, folks: Mayweather isn’t a slugger. Mayweather isn’t going to let you beat him into submission. Floyd M. Mayweather (actually his middle name is “Joy”, but we inserted “M” as in “money”) is not going to allow you to hit him. Floyd Mayweather is going to let you wear yourself out trying to hit him, and then he’s going to use his speed to get on the offensive. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a talented boxer. He’s not going to let hubris affect his game.

I suspect Manny Pacquaio was way too strong five years ago for Floyd to handle. I also suspect Floyd was well aware of that fact, and was also suspicious of Pacquaio’s strength. Once Floyd started questioning him, Pacquaio came down a bit. I believe Floyd now wishes he fought him before, because he could handle it.

I think Floyd wants to fight twice, both for huge paydays. He wants to finish 50-0, with a mountain of money in his pocket, and beating Rocky Marciano’s record. If I were Floyd, I’d fight my next fight in Beijing; strictly for the money.

Pacquaio made $120M off this fight. He has enough to continue the rest of his life without having to do anything else. I would suggest he seriously consider doing so, because he has nothing left to prove. Manny has slowed down tremendously.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
