Mayweather vs Mosley
By Johnny Barreto the real blood tests!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In life, like in boxing you need to be humble, tough and smart in order to survive. Most true boxing fans will tell you that Floyd Mayweather has ducked most of the best fighters in his division in this era. Fighters such, as Cotto, Margarito, Mosley, Williams,Clottey, Cintron, Collazo, Berto, Wright and now Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao, who is consider P4P the best fighter in boxing by many it’s now being questioned by Floyd….
Why?.... Well, Floyd questions the legitimacy of Pacquiao’s recent victories by demanding further blood testing, implying that Pacquiao most have use some form PED in order to achieve his recent success. Floyd insisted on random blood testing, even though, foul play as yet to be proven against Pacquiao.
I really thought that money is what drives Floyd to fight not pride and honour, but I was wrong. To pass up 30 million dollars plus these new demands on blood testing, just leads me to believe that Floyd most have jealousy, fear or disbelief in what Pacquiao has been able to achieve lately as boxer. Otherwise, why demand further blood testing? Yes Floyd, the most gifted boxers of this generation, the one who poses excellent boxing skills offensively and defensively, and in my opinion is the P4P most skilful boxer in the sport. But because of this blood issue in addition to his grandiose and arrogant personality, Floyd has brought himself many critics, including myself for not stepping in the ring to face Pacquiao or any of the best fighters in his division.
Boxing writer William Dettloff writes, “If you‘re going to talk as much as Mayweather does, you simply have to fight the best guys available or you’re a fraud.”… On the other hand, Pacquiao, a very humble yet a ferocious warrior in the ring is in my opinion the P4P greatest boxing warrior of this era and one of the greatest of all time. To watch him fight is one of the most exhilarating and intoxicating events you will ever witness. His speed, his offbeat movement, his power and heart is beyond belief. To be able to win championships in 7 weight classes is an unbelievable and rare achievement in boxing. Unlike Floyd whose boxing matches tend to be boring because of his defensive style.
But now Floyd is finally stepping up to the plate and will face a real warrior call Shane Mosley. Yes, Mosley who is 1 of the best boxers of this era and of all time and who at the age of 38 still poses great skill. Mosley will most likely take Floyd to deep waters and really test Floyd. Yes, Finally a real test...In boxing “there is nothing more courage’s than to watch a warrior struggle against adversity”….”When you are a real warrior, the only blood test you need is the one you spill in the ring”….. “Without courage, all other virtues lose their meaning”…………..Let the blood test begin….
