    Have a few favorites, winning title over Hernandez who cut the ring off forcing Pretty Boy to earn it.

    Dropping an undefeated Corralles five times?

    1st fight at 140 slugging toe to toe until ChopChop wilted. Lived that last knockdown, when Floyd offered to help him off the canvas, classic!!!

    First Castillo fight, earned my respect as the opening segment guys like DLH talked about the condition of Floyd's hands. To this day Floyd doesn't mention it.

    PAC worried him so bad, he refused to fight until drug testing while other boxers fought PAC no matter the claim.

    Retired when PW came into his own.

    Only other fight missed was Mosley, who moved up two divisions past good best, that version of Shane...135 for both guys to meet would've been the shit.

    :rofl:rofl:rofl Floyd didn't even need to get out of 1st gear that night, when was he wobbled or buzzed? I remember Corley, Judah and Mosley doing that, but Pac did NO such thing at anytime during the fight, he ate a few rights from Mayweather and gave up, hell Berto did better than him :lol:

    Round four, he got hit with a counter pull straight left, wobbled and then backed to the ropes and took about ten unanswered shits. Second one wasnt as bad, think it was round six, possibly seven, another straight left that backed him up and had him doing the 'didnt hurt me face' that boxers only do when they get buzzed for the rest of the round.

    Floyd actually ate a shit load of shots in that fight, possibly the worst defensive performance hes had in the back half of his career. The plus side for him was Manny was easier to hit so he won the majority of rounds.

    There was a good left hand that buzzed him and he had to go full defensive like the Judah fight, guard change and all

    He went defensive for 2 whole rounds and Pac got aggresive and threw flurries that were mostly blocked, nothing more nothing less, he did much much worse against Maidana in the 1st fight, Mayweather always shakes his head when his opponent goes on the offensive, anyway he was in far more danger against Corley, Judah and Mosley, he didn't eat many shots that night, even during the flurries he rolled and picked off and blocked most of the shots thrown.

    The Flurries only look good because Pac did nothing else that night, Cotto, Judah, Mosley, Corley, Castillo, ODLH and Maidana did much more than that.

    Ignore the title and the the point its trying to say Pacquaio won but this video at least shows how many times Floyd was hit in this fight. Some of the shots you cant see properly due to the angle so you can take them away but still he was hit clean a lot during this fight. The Maidana fight, Chino was able to impose his strength on him for the first five rounds, back him to the tope and fire away but Id say more shots in that fight were blocked than in this one, also after round five Floyd pretty much dominated the fight whereas he was still getting hit clean throughout this fight.

    Conpletely different fights to conpare really as they have different styles but Floyd had no easy night here and basically won it by slightly edging rounds, he was aporehensive as hell (as was Manny) but when shits were threw Pacquaio was picking cleaner shots than the majority of Floyds opponents have has success with.

    Mosley??? He basically had a good second round and those two shots were great but he landed practically nothing other than that. Take away rou d 2 and that fight was a sgut out. Judah had three rounds then was sgut out and Oscars shots were not even close to being as accurates as Pacquaios, Oscar had a few good rounds but mostly got Floyd to the ropes then threw recklessly, missing most.

    Ridiculous video, the fight was NOT competitive, Pac had 2 rounds where he let his hands go outside of that it was a boring strategic fight, where Mayweather played Chess while Pac played checkers, Mayweather landed the much cleaner shots throughout the bout, which was over as soon as Pac ate 2 big rights in the first round, after that he didn't want to open up. This was not one of his hardest fights, it was a typical easy night for Mayweather. Castillo-1, ODLH, Maidana-1, Corley and Judah were all much harder fights, Pac went out with little resistance.

    Yeah you could just ignore everything I said and go straight in on the point I said to ignore in the first sentence.

    Always thought Cotto gave Floyd a tougher fight than he was given credit for.

    3 things you need to be successful against Floyd, a good jab, be able to cut the ring off, be able to work on the inside.

    A) Hurt him the most - Mosley
    B) Landed the most - Castillo. Most body shots I've ever seen Floyd take.
    C) Worried him the most - Pacquiao as Floyd utilized clinches more than in any other fight to hault any of Pac's thunder inside.
    D) Caused him the most problems - Castillo with his combination punching and sneaky head movement.

    He had to dig really deep and make quite a few adjustments to win that first fight. Oskee had him for 8 rounds then didn't do shit.

    He (Mayweather) always had an angle on his opponents. Catching them at a shitty time in their career, asking them to make an unfamiliar weight and even having a ref that won't allow them to fight their fight. Floyd is obviously an amazing fighter, but also a devious cunt.

    Without a doubt. Mayweather-Pacquiao not taking place in 2010 and Holyfield-Tyson not taking place in 1991 are two of the biggest disappointments ever as a boxing fan.

    Floyd slaps any version of Manny silly, and deep down we all know this.
