February 28th, 2012 By Pedro FernandezREALITY CHECK TIME FOR MANNY PACQUIAO FANS!
San Francisco, CA- If you have ever played dice, you know that you can roll the dice time and again, but eventually you end up rolling “snake eyes,” which is when both of your dice come up “ones” and you lose! Although you might want to blame Floyd Mayweather, either because of his big mouth or you’re a Manny Pacquiao fan, truth be told, the blame for Pacquiao-Mayweather lies in the hearts (or lack there of) of Pacquiao and promoter Bob Arum.
DISLIKE FLOYD OUT OF RING, BUT HE’S THE KING INSIDE!
The dislike for Floyd, or his disapproval rating among boxing fans is high. But a lot of that has to do with Floyd being an arrogant and pompous ass that alienates both White Americans and Filipinos. That being said, even at 35, which Floyd turned this past Friday, his skill level is so superior that a fight with Manny Pacquiao would be a mismatch. Yeah, HBO’s Larry Merchant and Floyd are bitter enemies, but HBO’s resident judge Harold Lederman, a man who doesn’t have an axe to grind with either man, feels Floyd is by far the best fighter in the world.
MANNY HAS NEVER BEATEN JUAN MARQUEZ CONVINCINGLY
After all the controversy over last November’s Manny Pacquiao victory over Juan Manuel Marquez, with the entire press row believing Marquez won the fight, as well as a majority of “non-Filipino” boxing fans, one would think that seeing Manny had stepped in a pile of shit, that he would want to get that off his shoe and fight Marquez again. He hasn’t, and at every stop on the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley press tour, you can smell the shit on Manny’s shoes and the bull shit on the breathe of Bob Arum. “In case you forgot,” to steal a line from a prime Roy Jones, Marquez never landed a significant punch on Mayweather, thus he didn’t win one minute out of the 36 in which they fought.
PACQUIAO & ARUM BOTH SCARED TO DEATH OF FLOYD!
Having heard the boisterous rants of Filipino fans ever since early 2010 when Pacquiao refused to adhere to “random” drug testing, as a whole they have been muted by Pacquiao’s losing effort against an aged Marquez. They know he didn’t win! The woman that came after me in an almost physical rage during a Pacquiao fight last year because I told her that not only would I bet on Mayweather over Manny, but that Pacquiao couldn’t hit Floyd in the ass if he had a ping-pong paddle in his hand. The verbiage spewing from this one-time Pacquiao loud mouth after the Marquez fight was so faint that I thought she had laryngitis.
IF FILIPINO’S WERE NOT BLINDED BY NATIONALITY
They would realize a number of things. 1) Manny Pacquiao has certainly peaked as a fighter and is on the other side of the hill going down. 2) He lost to Marquez in November, hell, even the “Filipino Flash” Nonito Donaire had him losing not only the third Marquez fight, but the second as well. The UK media, outside of myself, probably the most brash and blunt of all pundits, they thought Marquez won hands down! 3) Had Manny not refused the drug tests, Pacquiao and Floyd would have fought in March 2010. 4) Pacquiao, like a bull shitting politician does at will, has talked out both sides of his mouth. He would’ve fought Floyd in May, but Floyd was going to jail. Then Floyd got a reprieve allowing him to fight in May, and Manny showing that he has some bitch inside of him, had Arum say he wouldn’t be ready to fight until June, because at that time, they knew full well that Floyd was starting his county jail stint on June 1.
BACK TO THE DICE GAME PACQUIAO IS PLAYING!
Although I don’t think Tim Bradley is a great fighter per se, he is capable of beating Pacquiao. He has the skills, that unlike Pacquiao, are not eroding day by day. When it is all said and done, Manny Pacquiao just doesn’t have the guts, the intestinal fortitude or the confidence to fight Floyd Mayweather. If he did and wasn’t taking the Steroids, Insulin, or EPO that he’s been suspected of taking, they would have fought already and Manny would’ve been exposed as slow, methodical and inferior to Floyd Mayweather. That’s what both Bob Arum and Manny both know.
A LOT OF YOU CALLED FLOYD “KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN”
That is a term tons of Filipinos have used. They also call Floyd Mayweater “Gay,” which is an absurd comment coming from ignorant fools whose boxing acumen is so limited all they know is Manny Pacquiao. The only true term I can see being bantered about right now is that Manny Pacquiao is “Chicken Adobo!”
