Pish! The man has more money than a horse can shite. I deserve more credit for throwin a couple of pounds of my comparatively modest wage to some homeless fella in the street.
Floyd Mayweather Jris definitely the Man when "haters" that exist on here name themselves in spun mocks of his name and wish him destruction (read Steven). I knew someone was going to knock that homeless bit here. I knew it. I frankly wished they wouldn't have shown it because nothing will satisfy these folks. Heck a lot of them don't even want to give him credit in being a good fighter with skills.
Oh someone asked how long has Floyd been doing humanitarian efforts. I've seen that Grand Rapids paper (the name escapes me) doing features way back since 2000. Again it doesn't matter.
I wish Floyd would acknowledge the IRS thing was real. I'm sure he's gotten it taken care of but damn dude, you don't help when you don't address things. Glad he addresses all the BS from Roger to the car. They have nothing to do with him and he wasn't a suspect. Good enough for me, save that shit for TMZ otherwise. I don't care.
I keep missing the first 5/10 minutes. Wish they'd show more running clips of both fighters.
Marquez says, "mayweather doesn't like to get hit and he can't handle pressure". SIGHING!!!! Damn, Juan Manuel Marquez WAS my favorite Mexican fighter till he made those stupid comments. How many people have thought that all you need to do is pressure Floyd? They're still thinking that JLC 1st fight (shoulder injury on Floyd's part mind you thats rarely mentioned) is the blueprint huh?? Nacho actually buys this??
First off, I can't think of too many people in the sport that box backwards as good as Floyd but if they're thinking "pressure", then Marquez is getting KTFO, period!! As far as "not liking to get hit". Sighing, but I do realize some people think of boxing as catching punches with your face.
If you're going to beat Floyd you better be in shape, have the ability adapt, use feints, keep Floyd guessing, not get hit from him (damn near impossible considering how accurate he is) and be able to stick with this undeterred. Marquez will be too slow IMO at this weight and too much bravado in trying to "pressure" Floyd will be his undoing.
