Manny Pacquiao showcased his brilliant boxing skills in both the Brandon Rios and Timothy Bradley fights. His graceful movement and technical sharp shooting punches left fans speechless. Manny Pacquiao had rewarded boxing fans for 10 plus years using a ferocious, aggressive, hurricane type fighting style that had never been seen before. His fights were exciting and dynamic. Fans got more than their money’s worth watching the greatest pure fighter of all time dissect , dismantle and destroy every opponent he faced. Manny Pacquiao then tricked us all by coming out and overwhelming Bradley and Rios with a boxing style that reminded us fans of the great Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson and Sugar Ray Leonard. Manny Pacquiao’s boxing was pure beauty. He was a Leonardo Da vinci painting the Mona Lisa. His transformation shocked us all, which led many to believe that Manny Pacquiao was not only the greatest pure fighter of all time but also the best boxer. Saturday night’s fight spoke volumes about the limitations of Floyd Mayweather and why he could never have beaten Manny Pacquiao. You must understand that Floyd actually tried fighting, something Manny has been doing for years. Marcos Maidana had Floyd hugging and holding on for life, which basically showed fans his fear and insecurity of fighting in a mano y mano type of fight. Floyd Mayweather tried to be macho, and show fight fans that he was tough. What he did was show us that he lacks the confidence and courage to win on another man’s turf. He cannot make the adjustment as his little brother Adrien Broner also failed at. Maidana on the other handed wanted Floyd to stand and fight and prove his worth as a true fighting warrior. Floyd Mayweather failed. And Manny Pacquiao, the greatest warrior to ever step into the ring made the adjustment from fighter to boxer with ease. He boxed with inspirational boxing techniques that had millions of fight fans tearing up. Manny proved he could change his style, Floyd showed us that he couldn’t. Holding on for dear life told true fight fans that he wanted no part of a real fight. He basically surrendered and threw in the towel. Boxing is about true warrior that don’t give up. They fight to the end. They have no quit in them. They would rather go down on their shield. Floyd Mayweather will never reach the heights of Manny Pacquiao. Manny is a true fighter. He is a monument to be saluted every time you see him. Stand up and salute the little big man. Boxing Historians can place a picture of Manny Pacquiao right next to the word Greatness. Trust me on this, no one beats Manny Pacquiao on a one fight basis. His domination of a sport will never be equaled. Manny is the best!

Amir Khan has just accused Luis Collazo of being a dirty fighter on Box Nation interview.
Amir Khan used an MMA kimura arm hold to prize Collazo’s arm and wedge it behind his back so he could expose his midsection and cracked him with a hook that dropped him in the 10th round.
Khan is possibly the dirtiest fighter in the game.
He head butted Barrera opening up a huge gash. Actually as a Lightweight he had a hit and rush style that used his momentum to bull them into the ropes as his fists flailed but as a Light Welter he learned to push, lean on, elbow, use his head, hug, clinch, grapple and hold. He has now had a year to learn MMA Class 101 with Andre Ward and Virgil Hunter and he had class in session Saturday night against a dummy who left his defence and his arms at home. Cheating Khant.

Gentlemen, such hateful comments towards me is really uncalled for. I am entitled to my opinion as you are also. Please don’t take my posts so serious. Relax and know that any of my comments are just my opinion. Please don’t get so emotionally riled up just because I see things a certain way. I thought Maidana won the fight. I dislike Floyd Mayweather’s character, and I admire Manny Pacquiao. Have a great day gentlemen.

Marcos Maidana won the fight 116-114 without question. I watched it a few times without bias in any way and without the volume. Fans around the world are correct in saying Floyd Mayweather got away with robbery against Maidana as he has in the past against Oscar De La Hoya and Jose Luis Castillo. Floyd Mayweather is not looked upon as an undefeated fighter because he’s really not. He was hit, roughed up and his constant holding because he couldn’t deal with a tough fighter made him panic and hold on for life. Holding, hugging or tying up as many put it is illegal. The referee should have taken points away. Holding is like putting your hands up and telling your opponent that he’s too much to handle. Marcos Maidana won 5 of the first 6 rounds. Look at the replay and see for yourself. He was landing the jab on Floyd when he wanted to. Floyd was missing by miles, and many of his punches were off the mark. He did have a few clean ones, but the crowd screamed even though the punch was a glancing blow or didn’t land. Maidana was the better man, and Floyd and his fans know this. Some people need to learn how to score a professional boxing match not an amateur boxing match. Maidana was effective throughout the fight. The 114-114 scorecard was more like it, but the truth is that one blind judge that should be banned for life had Mayweather winning 117-111?? What a pathetic joke. Regardless, Mayweather has been exposed, and the boxing world knows full well why Mayweather never wanted to fight the legendary, 8 division boxing champion and Fighter of the Decade. I knew all along Floyd Mayweather could not deal with Manny’s fighting style. Manny would have simply knocked Floyd Mayweather out cold. Too fast, strong, and brutalizing power in this southpaw fighting machine. The debate is over. The great Manny Pacquiao is the unanimous best fighter of his era as the Fighter of The Decade voted on by the best sports writers in the country voted Manny Pacquiao as being the best. What we all saw on Saturday night finally answered the question. Who was better, Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. The winner, Manny Pacquiao. His legacy will live forever. His fights are memorable and exciting. The boxing world loves this man. Manny Pacquiao is a living legend, and he obviously doesn’t need Floyd Mayweather for anything. Floyd Mayweather is done.

“I had Maidana by one round but hey I was drinking with a house full of folks. Got to review this weekend”

At least you’re honest, brother Bustajay. And very likely you will score the fight differently when you’re straight and have a clear mind. I listened to Joe’s broadcast Sat. but plan to watch the fight this coming weekend. I’ll score it too and post my scores here.

Posted May 5, 2014 10:11 am

Thanks bro
One thing I can say is that in my mind seeing Floyd struggle a few times, had not seen that in years, was likely the reason I ended up overly impressed with the little bulldog Maidana.

You are spot on about Joe calling ring action. He just never slows down and paints the perfect picture.
I look forward to the replay and will listen to Joe call it as it takes place.

Seen the whole fight maidana won 6 round. And stats say he landed 225 punches Floyd seem slower, or maidana could avold Floyd jab going in all the time.

Floyd had no choice he had to exchange and use his speed and experience inside. He tried boxing but maidana jab right back and even counter back a body shot and two clubbing over the top punches back. He got in everytime he tried and Floyd went backwards but he follow him and was inside still so back into the ropes.

He had no choice If Floyd tried to slip chino he would not see the combo punches and he would be close and sideway he could have been ko’ed. So he not dumb it’s better to face the coming punches and scrub them off.
His shoulder roll was of no use to cross punches also ( got that manny) or over the top punches as I said Floyd is open to them.

Floyd can’t handle slugger or slugger/ boxer. Or rather it’s a even ballfield fighting them vs slow boxers canelo one that can’t fight onside so he can slip away with put getting hit and can beat them boxing from the outside as most boxer don’t want to come inside, Oscar, hatten, maidana, are slugger or slugger /boxers.

They are going to watch this fight over and over as maidana took Floyd jab and his shoulder roll away.
Got inside evertime, and left Floyd no choice but to exchange, which he not the best in.

I didn’t score the fight, but it looked close enough to go etiher way to me. I plan on watching it again this week and scoring it. For whatever it’s worth, this fight just goes to show us, that you never know what’s going to happen in the ring until it happens. We should never make a 37 year old fighter as a 14-1 favorite over another champion.

Mbuyiseli my friend, not obsessed with Floyd, but dislike what he stands for. A man that was blessed with talent only to see him act the way he does and see how he treats people. He truly believes his money and material make him bigger and better than all humanity. The 24/7 and All Access shows people who Floyd Mayweather really is. He’s not putting on an act. He’s a hypocrite wearing diamond crosses and thanking God on occasion yet his mouth is full of garbage foul language and he has no shame when blatantly calling his own father every foul and degrading name in the book. Character in a person, especially a sports figure that has the attention of millions, has a better opportunity to live a good life and be a good role model to millions of kids and upcoming boxers, but acts like a fool and rambles about in his folly. I recall watching Floyd Mayweather as a young teen as an amateur and Olympian, and he was a very nice, modest humble kid. I watched him during the early stages of his career and his personality was very likable. He had a humble personality, and he looked to me like another Sugar Ray Leonard both inside and outside the ring. He then won his first title, and the hanger on’s started coming, and everyone started filling his head with all kinds of garbage. I began to see the beginning of what I thought would be a disaster of a potentially great fighter and role model as the promoters and his entourage of people came onto him like a bunch of vultures seeking their carcass. Floyd Mayweather then appeared to be believing everything, and then the ego started to come out louder and louder. The rest is history. We’ve all see what he portrays himself to be. The man today is a classless, egotistical, money hungry villain. Did you see what a jerk he was in the post fight press conference with his kiss but entourage behind him bowing at every word he said. Did you see Lil Wayne and the Mayweather camp trying to start fights with the Maidana camp as they were cheering through the hallway. I don’t need to get into Floyd Mayweather’s behavior because it’s all out there. He says things like Donald Sterlign is a great man? Putting his ex fiancee’s abortion document on Instagram? Calling Manny Pacquiao racist names. Laughing at fans because they pay money to see him fight. Throwing all his wealth in our faces is, and he has been consistent this this attitude and behavior the majority of his career. Floyd tries to act and speak well for about a minute, and then once someone asks him something or says something he doesn’t like, his real self comes back and begins degrading that person. Floyd Mayweather has rubbed people wrong, and as he says, he doesn’t care. Thank God for the world having a quality person like Manny Pacquiao. I admire and support this wonderful human being that is respectful, caring, loving, God fearing and is a humble, decent humble person that all of us can have admiration for. Just look at how he carries himself. Not one bad word. Not one word of disrespect for anyone. He never complains or cries. He never boasts about his money or materials. He gives and gives to those that are in need. Manny Pacquiao recognized the sin he had in his life at he turned away from it. He was a fallen man that took off the dirty clothes he had, and today he is a man with true character. Manny Pacquiao is loved and admired everywhere he goes, and for those that are jealous of him, he doesn’t sit well with. They try to take shots at him about his personal life. Laugh at his losses, suffering and struggles, but he continues to be a class act. He never changes. This is a good man. I hope this clears up my thoughts on Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. And just to add a little more to this. Manny Pacquiao is the best of all time. Floyd Mayweather proved to all of us that he would never have come close to beating Manny. Floyd is a skilled fighter, but he would have been knocked by the legendary, Manny Pacquiao, the only 8 division boxing champion in history. Hope my post helps you understand.

Close fight but Mayweather adjusted as always. Maidana had balls that Pacquiao never had. Pacquiao had to hide inside the rectum of Bob Arum to save himself from a beatdown from Mayweather. Maidana would decapitate that coward Pacquiao so Pacquiao plans to go down 140 lbs.

Gentlemen, I’m hoping that some of you MAYWEATHER fans can give me an answer to some information I’m going to share with you, and also some thoughts from Maidana fans that truly believe Maidana won. I’ve said on many occasions that Floyd fights in Las Vegas for a reason. He should have lost against Oscar, Castillo and Maidana. Someone please explain the same the following:

Floyd Mayweather beat Canelo Alvarez by the following judges score cards:
114-114
117-111
116-112

Floyd Mayweather beat Maidana last night by the following judges score cards:
114-114
117-111
116-112

Hmm………Coincidence????????????

Thanks for tuning in, Dimelo!!

Adrien is often too controversial for his own good.

He reminds me of one of the Hollywood types who wants to be a star, but not a true thespian. Adrien seems to be more interested in becoming a star and living the lifestyle, rather than being a great fighter.

I actually like Adrien and his trainer Mike Stafford on a personal level, but the less he says before and after a fight, the better.

Just box, Adrien…just box.

Mr. Herron:
I am not sure if the show is over yet but I am overseas and I always listen to the recorded version of the show later on the day; however, I listened to your live coverage of the fight yesterday and I enjoyed very much. I like the the fact that you add

I am having a hard time justifying Broner’s behavior in and out of the ring. I know he is trying to be entertaining and controversial but he goes overboard with his antics. He was only succesful this time because Molina is not that good; however, some of the other 140 pounders will do a number on him. He takes way too many punches and some one with power will laying flat on the canvas.

Floyd is a cry baby and a coward when it comes to fighting. Did you see him cry like a sissy when he received a low blow? He was near panic in his corner because he sensed MM was gonna drop his ass. I hope Maidana gets a second chance to fight Floyd-unless Floyd cherries out,!

Floyd out classes maidana all night as maidana tried to make it a brawl mayweather out brawled him when maidana resorted to dirty boxing he was introduced to the best at it. Inside the ropes Floyd’s a genius
