The long awaited Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight!
Nobody knows when the multi million pacquiao vs mayweather fight is going to happen. Everyone is waiting for the showdown. There is many stories about why the pacquiao vs mayweather fight has not been announced. I have heard some people say that pretty boy floyd does not want to fight without pacman, without pacman submitting to a blood test before the fight. Other people say that pretty boy floyd is just trying to dodge the pacquiao vs mayweather fight in order to retain his unbeaten record.
Setting aside all comments on the Pacquiao vs Mayweather bout…
Lets compare the two boxers in recent years and how would the pacquiao vs mayweather fight would look. First pretty boy floyd has fought oscar de la hoya in 2007 winning by a split decision; later that year Ricky Hatton, knocking him out in the tenth round. He retired that year and came back from retirement in 2009 to fight Juan Manuel Marquez in an amazing performance which he won by a unanimous decision. This fight created a lot of doubts about the pacquiao vs mayweather fight, because Floyd dominated the 12 rounds on Juan Manuel Marquez and Marquez had been such a tough opponent on Pacman. In 2010 floyd won a unanimous decision on Shane Mosley after being punched hard in the second round.
Then 2011 came and the controversy arrived to Pretty boy Floyd’s corner. His last fight against young Victor Ortiz was one that many are questioning to this day. In round 4 Ortiz was trying to hit mayweather in the ropes and ortiz incidentally headbutted mayweather. After the referee deducted a point from Ortiz, the fighters went to touch gloves. When it look like Ortiz was trying to touch gloves with Mayweather, and while ortiz had his hands down,Mayweather punched ortiz twice to knock him down. Controversy was created and the boxing world was surprised.
Understanding that this will not happen in the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight…
Manny Pacquiao has done his job in his side of the corner. He has beaten every opponent in the welter division since 2008. Starting with Oscar de la Hoya by practically not letting him lower his hands; then knocking down ricky the hitman hatton in the second round, then winning by tko in the 12 round a fight with miguel cotto. 2010 came and he took down Joshua Clottey and beating down one of the most resistant fighters by a unanimous decision Antonio Margarito. Pacman seemed invincible and ready for the pacquiao vs mayweather fight, but 2011 brought doubts on many of his fans and the boxing world. A fight was scheduled with Juan Manuel Marquez to complete their epic trilogy. The fight was 12 rounds of what has been called the best fight of 2011. Marquez came ready to counter every time that pacman would come with his flurry of punches. But pacman was busier and stole the judges scorecard to a questionable decision that changed the perspective on many of the pacquiao fans and the boxing world.
If we compare the two fighters and we think of a pacquiao vs mayweather fight we can look at many differences. Both of the fighters are getting past his prime. Soon they would have to schedule a pacquiao vs mayweather fight because they would soon have no fighters left to fight. They both have different styles that could make a real good fight. Same as Juan Manuel Marquez vs pacquiao fight, a pacquiao vs mayweather fight would bring us an attacking fighter vs a counter puncher defensive fighter.
Pacquiao age 33 and mayweather age 34 will soon be thinking about their retirement. The boxing world is waiting for the pacquiao vs mayweather fight and the people want to see it. this means that their promoters should come to an agreement and make the fight happen in the year 2012. We also have many young fighters coming up and i know would like to have a taste on one of these two boxers. Pacquiao vs Mayweather will be an interesting and spectacular event that will at last set all doubts to the side and show who the true best pound per pound fighter is.
