Going by Mourinho's first stint at Chelsea being in 04 and Mayweather's first pro bout in 96, I'd say Chelsea is the Mayweather of football. In all actuality though, they're not nearly as technical or as accomplished.
Floyd's style is defensive with counter punches. Manny is more of the aggressive inside boxer... however, he couldn't get anywhere near Floyd. It might be boring but certainly effective. Not a surprise.
Btw, did you catch the Spurs v clippers game today? worthy of a final.
It was tie after tie... best 1st round playoff series I have ever seen.
Hopefully rockets will take advantage of the ailing clippers. Glen davies is also out I think. griffin might need to play extra minutes and if rockets were to use similar tactics as in hack the jordan, Doc might need to take out his best defender in the paint. Harden will be able to drive and get into the paint time after time.
Plenty of casual boxing fans are slating the fight but to people who watch a lot of boxing and who have seen these 2 numerous times it went the way we all expected.
Pacquiao tried to get lucky and knock him out but failed miserably, Mayweather just outboxed him. You knew he had it in the bag very early on (or before the fight as I did). Mayweather is just far too intelligent a boxer to let Pacquiao get a clean hit on him and knock him out.
I am disappointed in Pacquiao though, I expected a lot more from him. Maidana gave Mayweather a much tougher fight than Pacquiao did the first time he fought him.
It went exactly how I thought it would. I'll reiterate what I said on TR: Floyd did what he had to do, he's a brilliant at what he does and that's WIN. I would have absolutely loved to see Manny win, preferably by knock-out, but I always maintained a belief that Manny's only chance of a win was indeed a knock-out and I never once believed he could do it. I predicted a Mayweather win on points. He wasn't exciting, but Floyd deserved it.
There is absolutely no debate over the result. A somewhat disappointing Manny was outboxed last night, by a born winner and a genius of the sport.
What's next for Floyd? Khan? Not for me. Some are throwing around Golovkin, now that's a long shot but I'd love to see it.
