I don't buy this race BS. He was not liked because of his projected public personna & the fact that he always took the path of least resistance.
See it's comments like this that are hilarious. Oh really? I honestly don't know why I waste my time at times commenting to you because you rarely to NEVER substantiate the BULLSHIT you express. But I admit I enjoy putting you in your place often times. (Hey I'm still waiting for someone on Kostya's resume that remotely resembled Floyd's style since Kostya had NO problems with"boxers" even though Floyd could take on many other stances. Oh yeah, your logic again was he beat Roger so he'd beat Floyd,lol. As I told you before, they fought nothing alike to even mention that shows you don't know what you're talking about..)
In comparison to WHO(who's supposedly NOT chosen the so called least path to resistance)??
Lets see Floyd fought Genero Hernandez two years into is career when Genaro was the KING of the Featherweights when Floyd could have easily set up a match with Roberto Garcia who was the IBF holder.
He cleaned out that division when he fought Corrales.
Do we need to move up to 135, (I know i've typed this before but oh well) he went straight for the top with Jose Luis Castillo and for those of you that actually think he lost the first fight, well I don't hear anything about how he fought through a bad hand that fight and I NEVER hear how he beat him CLEARLY the second time. So who's missing here?? Friggin Joel Casamayor, sighing. Yeah, Joel had a chance against Floyd but I'll give you all that one even though the Mayweather camp says they tried to make fights with Casamayor so we have a stale mate there.
Who was there at 140. Ricky Hatton beat Kostya and went afteer Maussa (which floyd could have) but he was chasing bigger fish. A higher weight class and the linear champ at the time.
Nevermind Floyd fought and stopped everyones favorite fighter that fights EVERYONE in Emmanual Augustus. So again, who did he avoid??
Its post like this that feed into this "HATE" that I'm referring to. If you really want to be nitpicky, ANYONEs career could be picked apart as to "why they didn't fight this person when"
I'd be comfortable if people just said they didn't care for just 'cause' not try to rationalize with something thats easily refutable.
The way Floyd is hated on her you'd think he was some "C" level fighter.
The fact that his names comes up damn near weekly DEFINITELY monthly and he's been out the game for 7 months speaks to his stance.
