Boxing is a sport where real men, such as myself, compete with other guys for rewards like money, respect and lots of women. Floyd Mayweather has lots of money, possibly gets tons of women but he does not have the respect of other modern greats such as someone like, I don’t know, his next opponent Many Pacquiao. His greatness is definitely questionable. The reasons for this are numerous and are as easily notable as desirable … Read Article
Today is February 26, 2015, and it has been six days since Floyd Mayweather Jr. posted an image of the signed fight contract for his bout against Manny Pacquiao.

In a talk with ESNEWS, Jeff Mayweather spoke on a glaring double standard that separates two of the top fighters in the sport – Floyd and Manny. It is my opinion that Mayweathers detractors are so hungry to see Floyd lose they will create a fighter who can beat him in their minds, even if he does not exist in the real world.

“Pacquiao will definitely win. Pacquiao is just too tough and too strong. … Read Article
What I have come to learn from boxing fans over the years is that they are fickle, and hard to please. I certainly remember the days when I would tell myself, after Mayweather does this people will respect him, or, after Mayweather beats so and so people will respect him. What I have learnt now is that those who belittle Mayweather’s accomplishments today, are the people who will continue to do so until he retires. … Read Article
