Now many of you heard of the recent lashing of Brian Kenny to Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather in their interview a short time ago.ESPN'S Brian Kenny,an obvious Pac man fan, kept bringing him up when interviewing Floyd. He was making blatant suggestions on how Mayweather is dodging Pacquiao.He even introduced Floyd by saying he was the "former" pound for pound champion in the world. Claiming he lost that title the day he retired.Knowing Mayweather's massive ego, I knew it was gonna get ugly from that point on..And Kenny kept making a stong case for the Phillipino fighter throughout the interview. Now alot of people don't like "Money May" for his brash arrogance and his crafty defense and popshot techniques(as opposed to wars), but I felt that Kenny was kind of wrong for attacking him that way.
Yes Floyd is coming off a 21 month layoff and his last two opponents,Paquiao seemed to steamroll over. And yes Pacquiao's fights do seem more action packed. But all those attacks aside, How can you debate that there's anybody out there better than Mayweather?? HE is a tactioner ,the ultimate chess player, a strategist to almost the line of perfection. 39 opponents couldn't seem to break his guard and limit his preciseness.. He's a defensive genius!! With superior fast hands and his arm cross and crab defense, while tucking his chin behind his shoulder reducing his opponents target to a very small window , by using weird and elusive angles but maintaining perfect balance with a wide stance. He IS the ultimate test in the welterweight division.
Now I am a big fan of Manny's too.With his unorthodox ferocity to his weird and explosive punching,and his ability to keep fighting when pressure is on him.He is undoubtedly the most exciting fighter out there right now.To see these two go at it is like Nirvana on a Saturday. An offensive militia vs a defensive scientist. Perhaps the fight of the century on my part. But there are flaws in Manny.His defensive skills have dramatically improved, but instead of being smart, Pacquiao fights with his heart sometimes being prone to big shots he must absorb.I have seen Manny hurt,but his detrmination will never let him "quit".And I admire him for that. But....Who has really touched Floyd or even hurt Floyd?? And until Floyd has a 1 in in his loss column, there is no debate. 39-0 and 25 kos. Nuff said!!
