Hope the Huggies commercial didnt lie to you. Boxing is a business just as much as a sport. These guys don't wanna fight people who wont bring them great benefits when they have families and mouths to feed. Floyd to me been proved himself long ago. Manny's greatest wins was against Marquez and even those are debatable to this day. Floyd is focused on money he have his entire life to the sport, more than a decade. He's rightfully earned his stripes, worked hard and can do what he wants. Manny has a great matchmaker behind him in Freddie Roach. Manny never stepped up to fight Hasim after Morales was outboxed by him,instead he fought a washed up Morales and still lost. Manny's achievements will never squander Floyd's thats a fact. My logic is twisted so even the craziest and nut headed fans like you will understand but you obviously proved my hypothesis wrong. Manny is basically a Clone Modern Floyd but worse, fights fighters who are coming off of losses, bad looks, struggle with a certain, catch weights, ducks young/prime fighters (Ortiz or Berto anyone?) while the Modern Floyd, fights for cash, fights once a year(he is older now tho), only looks at the main attractions in boxers, uses alot of mind games, plays a villain to sell tickets(understandable) to produce more money.
Try introducing yourself to a paragraph, trust me if feels better.
Mate I could dissect this post to pieces but what would be the point? You think Marquez was a good win but totally ignore his first win over Barerra and his win in the 2nd Morales fight? The same Morales that just gave a young strong (albeit crude) Maidana all he could handle?
He stepped up and fought those Mexican legends a total of 7 times. And no-one since with the possible exception of Floyd's fight against JMM at the CW has come close to doing what Manny has done to them.
Just for your interest when he fought Morales after Morales fought (I'm assuming you meant Zahir Raheem
) he actually won that fight.
So it's OK for your BF Floyd to take money fights now but not OK for Manny to do the same thing? I don't think fighting the far bigger Cotto or Margarito was a walk in the park for him either.
Manny's matchmaker for much of his career has been more Top Rank and Bob Arum not Freddie Roach. That's the same Top Rank and Bob Arum whom guided your boy Floyd through much of his career. I don't know what you'll make of that.
As for Manny fighting guys coming off losses what the fuck do you call Floyd fighting Judah? Ha ha, good one dude.
I could go on and on but it's clear you don't have ears.
