Well done Floyd Mayweather Jr.
By By Babatis Banda: Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) deserves to be congratulated. He showed why he has reigned supreme in this sport for over sixteen years. The last performance against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) last Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada was a Mayweather signature performance.
He was sharp, elusive, aggressive, and mobile and everything an intelligent boxer should be. I could not believe that Mayweather was coming off a long layoff and worse, had a stint in jail in that period. There were no signs of ring-rust what so ever and his legs are still intact. Father time has not made any dent on his abilities, not a single bit!
The beauty with Floyd is that he adapts to the style of his opponents. He always finds a way to win and win convincingly. He was not wasteful against Guerrero, an opponent known for his aggressive and rugged style.
Instead, Guerrero was tamed on the fight night and popped with hard straight rights all night long. I have no doubt in my mind, that there is no single fighter within his weight class that can beat him. There is completely none!
Real boxing lovers do appreciate this man.
What he brings to the ring is almost unseen before, a combination of unmatched skill and freshness even after so many years in the trade. This is a boxer that is evidently less hit throughout his career. We are not accustomed to see him getting hit. This is a fighter that is undefeated, a fighter that has never touched the canvas, never stopped. He is purely one of the best boxers to ever lace the leathers. In short, Mayweather is plainly legendary.
For a great boxer like him, there are always going to be some detractors. In short, there are going to be haters, and for a reason. In this case, Mayweather’s deepest haters are Manny Pacquiao’s supporters.
Since Pacquiao was obliterated by Juan Manuel Marquez, the focus now is that Mayweather should also suffer defeat to equalize the feeling. The truth of the matter, however, is that Mayweather is always in tip-top condition and there is no serious opposition as it stands.
Floyd called out WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez not so long ago, but it was believed that Canelo was not ready yet. If Canelo –Mayweather happens, Canelo will be taken into deeper waters, there is no doubt that Canelo would fall short as long as they fight at a fair weight.
Once again, I congratulate Mayweather for yet another great performance against one of the best fighters today. Mayweather truly conducted another boxing tutorial in beating Guerrero.
