In Floyd's defense on his performances, he can still say he beat all three of those men first. Mosley was coming off a dominant win over Margarito when he lost to Mayweather, and then he looked like crap against Sergio Mora and was another year closer to 40 years old before getting the Pacquiao fight (which is what I'm sure Floyd would say if he was pressed about it, lol)
I've always liked Floyd, but he needs to get his problems sorted out right now if all the reports are true. I have a hard time believing half the stuff they print about him anymore because so much has turned out to be bogus, but either way I just wanna see him box again.
I think that no matter how you break it down, the majority of folks will still say Pacquiao was more dominant over Oscar, Ricky, and Shane than Floyd was, however there are always two sides to look at.
Pacquiao threw more punches against Clottey than him and Mosley threw COMBINED last Saturday, and Floyd is notorious for cutting people's punch output way down after they figure out that every time they swing they just whiff and end up getting countered. Part of it was probably just Manny having more respect for Shane's abilities than he should have considering where Mosley is in his career, but the fact still remains that if Mosley could make Manny slow down, Floyd will almost definitely slow him down big time.
Hey J.B so I know we are both LiL' Floyd fans and I just wanted to hear your opinion about something.
I was just looking at the news headlines about the Pacquiao/Mosey fight and I stumble on some that said Pacquaio Outclassed Mayweather against Mosley? Now I know styles make fights and just because Floyd beat Mosley it doesn't guarantee that he would beat Pacman and Vice Versa?
Even though Pacman knocked Mosley down and Mosley Rocked Floyd I still think Floyd beat Mosley in a more dominant fashion!
What do you think? And do you think now after comparing both fights that either one has a slight advantage over the other?
I see how Pacquaio gets frustrated and gets hit when people “run” (ignorant people call it running) from him. So I feel that Floyd’s elusiveness and speed would give him a slight edge over Pacman.
