Intriguing fight, very intriguing - hopefully Clottey will now start to come into his own as the Pacman seems to be tiring. Round 8 don start!
Damn the Pacman does the business again but the Ghana represented sha as he took the fight at short notice and had his main trainer denied a visa thus having to rely on a cut man that was employed by the Pacman in a previous existence! Mayweather will demistify the Pacman - that I predict.
To other boxers, Manny may seem intimidating; but not to Mayweather. Manny has been demystified before, but Mayweather hasn't. Pretty boy will simply do what has been done to Manny before, but which has never been done to him, which is defeat Manny. He will do so in stylish and classy way.
Thank you Sir - could not agree more. There is only one Mayweather.
Why is he dodging the Pacman? All those crap about Olympic size dope testing reeks of fear, me think. Did Pacman look like a doped guy against Clottey, not by a mile.
Dodging for where. The guys asked for dope tests to be held at a time not of the pacmans chosing so that what ever traces that remain are not washed off him. Pacman said no, question is what does he have to hide moreso when Mayweather had agreed to submit himself to the same??
So, which precedent is he trying to follow? If you cannot fight, get out of the ring. Only cowards look for excuse before they are even beaten. I am not a supporter of Pacman. I even look forward to when he will be beaten. But Mayweather should not give me that crap about some doping test.
Mayweather a coward???. Ok pull another one, a guy unbeaten in forty fights and still counting, a guy rated by the ring magazine as pound for pound the best boxer in the world, a six time champion at five different weights with twenty five knockouts - that one na coward.
Mind you, Pacman has been beaten about three times already you know.
That is the more reason why Mayweather is afraid. He does not know what it means to get beaten. Pacman has been there before and so fears no foe.
Coming to this dope thing, I believe it is being overblown. What advantage does dope give to boxers, really? Makes them fearless; gives them more punching power and generally makes it difficult to knock them out since the dope may actually increase their endurance rate.
All these may prove advantageous in athletics, where strength and stamina determine the winner, but in boxing, a very technically grounded boxer will neutralize all those advantages and come out tops. This is the reason why height, weight and reach advantages alone do not determine who wins a boxing contest. Boxing is not won only through knock outs but also on points.
Yes, there will be dope test before the contest, but to insist it must be done as Mayweather dictates is sheer bunkum. Succumbing to that by Pacman is to give Mayweather an undue psychological advantage before even throwing any punch. Rules are made by the authorities overseeing boxing and not by boxers that are afraid of denting a record they got against less fearsome opponents.
I sincerely hope Mayweather takes up the challenge.
