So, I think it's very funny that everybody and their Mom thinks Floyd Mayweather is going to punish Manny now. First of all, lets give Marquez his DUE.. Marquez is the lightweight world champ, he's got 2 losses and 1 draw to Manny. Styles makes FIGHTS, and that's what the big deal with that was. Manny won the fight in my opinion, but a NARROW, and I mean, NARROW decision.. I'd give Manny 2-3 rounds over Marquez at the end of the fight, TOPS.. Honest opinion.. While I do have a Manny avatar, I'm fully aware of Floyd Mayweather jr. I watched Mayweather jr. abuse Anturo Gatti, which awokened my eyes.
Here's the deal.. let me just put it plain and simple for yah.. Manny HATERS..
MANNY'S BIG ADVANTAGE, against MOST ANYBODY.. hint hint..
it's the way Manny knows how to get outta trouble, and how Manny run's in and punches..
MANNY HOPS from SIDE TO SIDE, he CREATES CRAZY ANGLES TO HIT FROM, I"VE SEEN NOTHING IN MY LIFE LIKE IT.
Manny, which is a lame argument, is more entertaining to watch, he doesn't counter, HE GUNS..
Floyd's undefeated, his styles.. Impeccable..
Withall this being said, I like Manny to win a narrow decision against Mayweath

OK I will pick this up.
What happened to Manny knocking out Marquez or tearing through him because he has improved so much? I thought Pac has gotten so much better that this wouldn't even be a contest. Turns out that Marquez does have what it takes to compete with Manny.
Manny does hop from side to side but his hopping is what gets him in trouble vs counter punchers. His movement is extremely quick but when you are hopping what has to happen before you can through a punch? You have to stop hopping, this tells the counter puncher you are know going to throw a punch.
If a slower Marquez can time this as well as we have seen in 3 fights what do you think someone like Floyd will do? Marquez is like the Karate Kid to boxing where Floyd is Bruce Lee. Both good but one in a class of their own.
I find it funny how Pac fans like yourself look at one moment that Floyd got touched in the Mosley fight to show how Pac will win but after 36 rounds of struggling vs Marquez doesn't open your eyes to how poorly Manny does against these kind of fighters.
Floyd will not only win a decision but he will dominate the fight. He is faster, stronger an bigger than Marquez but fights similar.

Floyd's just on a tear, right?
He sucker punched a 24 year old, raw, champ!
this is after a 16 month layoff..
Who can't knock somebody out, with two free **** licks? lol
Mayweather is a great boxer, and so is Manny..
Lets not digest that Mayweather beat Marquez soundly, and Manny didn't.. Because if that's the case, then what happened to Hatton and De La Hoya for Manny?
Either way, Floyd's biggest opponent in his HISTORY, is MANNY..
LIke i stated, who's the last guy that's been up in Floyd's grill?
We all know Manny will.. Also, Manny's head is quite huge, I think his chin showed a lot in the last fight with Marquez.. At this point, I'd almost rather see Khan vs Mayweather, and Marquez vs Manny 4.. BUT
if Floyd fought Manny in May, he's being dumb, he still needs another tuneup.. maybe, so does Manny..
never seen it exposed, well, maybe Demarcus "Chop Chop" Corley has something to say about that..
I mean, ask Sugar Shane, he said Manny punches harder..
here it is..

What happened with Oscar and Hatton with Mayweather? He beat them first. That is more important than beating them afterwards later. To knockout someone the first time is much harder than taking on someone's leftovers and everyone who saw Manny vs Oscar knew that Oscar was a dehydrated piece of meat with no energy.
Marquez vs Manny is a foreshadowing of Mayweather vs Manny because the styles are similar enough we can draw conclusions. We saw once again Manny gets hit easily by guys who have great counter punching.
This isn't hard to understand "bro". We have seen Manny exposed by a fighter that fights similar to what Floyd does but not as good. There is no reason to think Floyd won't do better.
Manny does have more power, no one will discount this but to question Floyd's chin or heart is just straight hating. He has never been down and has never shown any quit in a fight. Manny has been down more than once and stopped in the ring.
A tough pressure fighter like Chop Chop doesn't do you argument well. He was taking knees and won only 1 round from Floyd. He was dominated in that fight.
Manny is more pleasing to watch but Floyd is the far better boxer, you will see.

Yeah, you will see that heart and hustle, will in all actuality, beat SKILLL!
Mayweather will be in FLOYD'S GRILL>.
Has flody ever had a black eye?
jumping phillipine bean in his face?
Marquez putting a fight was given, even you know that Bucky, lets be real, at least Manny fought Cotto and Margarito, Floyd dodged Margarito, and damn sure didn't have the panties for Cotto.. I know Mayweather could win both those fights, but while on the table, he was scared.
Manny wins a decision, it's very very close.. Manny's chin is better than people think, sure, Floyd's getting some shots in , this isn'a onesided fight, but Manny works more, and therefore will be the aggressor, in some irrelevant rounds for the both of 'em, you can't knock that.. floyd counters, manny attacks.. i still have him winning, he hates Floyd.

I am glad you recognize that I stated that Marquez would give Pac a tough fight. The funny thing is that you did not predict what happened, not even close. You said Manny would be to much and would walk right through him. Since I predicted that fight correctly it only helps my case predicting this fight.
Yes Floyd has had a busted nose and been marked up pretty good in fights. Just because you don't follow these fighters when they are making their name doesn't mean these fights aren't happening. Maybe pay attention to Floyd before the Gatti fight and you will see he can handle a war as well as anyone.
A great counter puncher will always beat a great pressure fighter. Just how the sport works and why the best fighters in history had a style more like Floyd rather than a style like Pac does. There are great pressure fighters in the history of the sport but they always feel short when fighting a great all around boxer. Look at Ali vs Frazeir [RIP], Duran vs Leonard and I could go on.
You have shown your bias towards Manny from the start but it is time to look at this fight for what it is. A great all around boxer vs a great pressure fighter. The better boxer will win.
