For all of the anticipation that lead up to the recent Mayweather vs. Pacquiao boxing match, the fact of the matter is there really wasn’t a winner. Yes, Mayweather was able to be declared the victor, and both fighters were successful in padding their wallets for the process, but ultimately it felt like the drama before and after was far more tolling on the public than any of the punches that were actually thrown during the fight.
What’s even worse is that after the fight Pacquiao blamed his lack of effort and ability on an injury in his shoulder. And, as expected, once the excuse was suggested as the reason for defeat, Mayweather had a few words in response as well: http://sports.yahoo.com/video/floyd-mayweather-dont-buy-manny-194239766.html
Even though in recent times it is starting to appear as if boxing is fading out of popularity, the truth is the drama is as exciting as ever. There are more than enough fighters out there to bring in the viewers, and while not all of them have the big names that Mayweather might, they can bring the same amount of drama that he can. It’s not about being the best anymore it seems. When it comes to boxing you just need to become popular enough (or interesting enough) to attract the viewers and then you truly can turn that hype into a major payday. Will there be another fight as big as Mayweather vs Pacquiao? Will it have to be a rematch? Residents at The Aspire New Brunswick know that they will have to stay tuned.
It was billed as the fight of the century, and the most important fight in boxing history. However, it seems that boxing experts and fans of the sport were sadly mistaken. The Manny Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather fight was a disaster. No one can fault Pacquiao, but it was Floyd Mayweather who ruined the event for millions of fans.
The crowd for the Pacquiao versus Mayweather fight was electric in the beginning of the bout. Soon, though, the world realized that only one man was there to fight, and the other man was there to run all night long. Boxing fans’ worst fear came true on May 2, 2015. Floyd Mayweather ran all night long and held his way to a unanimous decision victory. However, Manny Pacquiao felt that he won the fight, and many of his supporters felt the same way. Pacquiao pressured Floyd Mayweather the entire night, while Floyd Mayweather scarcely landed a telling blow.
Fans of boxing got what they wanted to see for the first few rounds, but then it was apparent that the fight would not live up to its hype. Manny Pacquiao connected several punches that staggered Floyd Mayweather, and he relentlessly pursued and attacked the dodging fighter. It quickly became clear to Paul Mathieson and other fans that Mayweather was there to collect a paycheck and not fight the fight that fans wanted to see. Floyd Mayweather won the bout, but he lost the respect of millions of fans. For more information on this story, visit USAToday.
Manny Pacquiao is facing the possibility of fines and having his boxing license suspended for failing to report a shoulder injury before his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2, 2015. According to a statement that was released by Pacqiero’s trainers, he suffered a shoulder injury while preparing for his fight with Mayweather. Pacquiao failed to report this shoulder injury on a pre-fight medical form that is routinely issued by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
Pacquiao’s main problem is that he checked the “no” box in response to a question about a shoulder injury. It is not known at this time whether this was simply a mistake or if it was a deliberate attempt to deceive the boxing authorities. There is also some speculation that Pacquiao may have checked the “no” box in order to hide his injury from his opponent. Certainly Mayweather would take advantage of his opponents potential weakness and vulnerability if he had knowledge of the injury.
The Nevada state attorney general is currently investigating the case. Hopefully, all will turn out well for Pacquiao. MyCentralJersey.com pointed out that this situation never would have occurred if Pacquiao had been staying at The Aspire New Brunswick. Boxing is a tough sport and fighters get injured all the time while training. A boxer should not be expected to reveal every injury that he has received while preparing for a fight. Often, injuries incurred during preparation for a fight are slight. A boxer and his team are in a good position to determine whether or not the boxer is in good enough condition for a fight. Although the State of Nevada has an interest in ensuring the honesty and integrity of boxing matches within the state, the Pacquiao camp should be given considerable leeway in this matter.
We all know a love the “money” Mayweather side of Floyd. I’m talking about when he is yelling and trash talking and as confident as a king. This is the Muhammad Ali approach, and it seems as if we haven’t been seeing as much of that as we would like. Floyd states that he has got the right team in place and his success sells itself. He no long needs to rant about proving his worth. At this point everyone knows he is good and knows he has money.
Mayweather’s game has risen to a new level at this point, all Floyd needs to focus on is winning matches. Floyd has also found new ways to flaunt his successes without verbally announcing it. Betting 150,00 on the little Caesar’s bowl, buying a going away present for himself that consisted of a 300,000 dollar white Bentley, but then he got picked up in a blue Bentley when he left jail. Lastly I’m sure a lot of us have seen the video of him getting a massage with about 20 women dancing and twerking around him. Floyd looks at this fight as being a “great match up between two great fighters”.
Amen Clinic even figures he has great respect for Pacquiano, besides the fact that it seems a lot that many wants to talk about is his religion. Many think that this is a great strategy for him, seeing that Mayweather has a huge fan base. Either way, Saturdays event should be a good one.
Floyd Mayweather will face Manny Pacquiao in the riches fight of all time. The bout takes place on Saturday, May 2, and the entire world is waiting to see what happens when the two finally meet. Mayweather and Pacquiao fans are divided, and no one is sure who will win. However, Floyd Mayweather’s recent behavior is beginning to concern his fans.
Normally, Floyd Mayweather is extremely cocky and arrogant, but he hasn’t been that way for this fight. Mayweather hasn’t said anything to Manny Pacquiao’s face, and most people believe that it’s because Floyd is nervous. At the most recent press conference, Floyd Mayweather stumbled his words and seemed out of place reported crowd member Sultan Alhokair.
Manny Pacquiao’s trainer is worried that Floyd Mayweather may not show up on the night of the fight. However, Floyd Mayweather will be there because there’s too much money to be made. Both fighters will be making more than $100 million, and one loss wouldn’t be the end of Floyd Mayweather’s life. We are all hoping that Mayweather doesn’t run, and we want him to actually fight hard against Manny Pacquiao.
No one can deny that Mayweather’s recent behavior is very strange for him. Is the great Floyd Mayweather actually scared? All of the questions will be answered on Saturday, May 2. For more information on this story, visit theGuardian.
People to view certain state laws to be biased when it comes to certain celebrities. Mayweather has been charged six times with domestic violence but has only served about two months in jail. He has not been reprimanded by the Nevada Athletic Commission in anyway. He is still able to make millions of dollars as a professional fighter within the state.
Oliveira said that some may deem Mayweather’s ability to continue to fight and make money to be unfair. If Mayweather was an everyday “Joe” or even a professional player in a different sport he would possibly be receiving additional consequences for his domestic violence charges. One could say that Mayweather is just receiving a slap on the wrist for the domestic violence charges.
Not all of Mayweather’s judicial problems are behind him. He is currently being sued by his ex-fiancée Shantel Jackson. Shantel Jackson claims that Mayweather physically hit her and even threatened to shoot her with his gun. Though this case is still active Mayweather is able to obtain his promoter’s license and book fights. The state athletic commission has questioned Mayweather about his charges and the civil suit against him, but they have not taken away any privileges away from the fighter. He is still scheduled to fight Manny Pacquiao and earn approximately $180 million dollars.
The world of boxing differs from other sports like football. As one may recall, Ray Rice was suspended by the NFL commissioner due to domestic violence. I wonder how Mayweather would react if his domestic violence charges caused him to sit out a couple of fights.
