Flomos and pactards...smdh. I swear I hate those names. Id like to know who the genius is that came up with these dumb ass nicknames that everyone in boxing uses.

As far as Floyd cleaning up the sport...well, I seriously doubt there would be ANY RBTing if the guy didnt kick the shit off but these dudes are fighting for half a billion in revenue. The loser of this fight, especially if its Floyd, will be ridiculed endlessly. You'd be a fool to think neither of these dudes would juice with so much on the line. Not saying they will...but the shits possible.

I want Manny to win, just so that idiot Stephen A Smith can shut the hell up. And also so people(idiots) can stop saying FMM is the GOAT, thats just ridiculous.

Is it really though? I understand the nostalgic feeling we get when talking about older fighters but some of the fighters people have no problem calling great aren't as good as Floyd technically...just the brutal truth. Name one ATG at 38 yrs old that could whoop a 38 yr old Floyd.

Now, I'm not saying Floyd is the best ever but his lil ass has a damn valid argument.

No fucking way, in any way is Floyd even in the same universe as the GOATS. Its easy fighting at 38 when your fighting bums. Fact is none of these clowns would even be ranked if they were born 50 years earlier.

And of course the ones in the past couldn't whip him if both were 38, because they actually fought and fought ranked, future Hall of famers. So they took more punishment. Floyd is good, a Hall of famer but if anyone has him anywhere near a Top 20 of all time, They should run into a brick wall.

Does Mayweather Have a Glass Body?

Think this is just a "gym tale" or do you believe it? If it's true, what kind of advantage or disadvantage does this give to Pac-Man?

Discuss.

If it is true Mayweather should be doing this, and only this the rest of his fight camp.

Danny posting fake news lol. I love cats that don't know shit about boxing then try to talk about boxing. Hilarious. Tyson recently gave an interview where he spoke about all time greats not having a shot against current athletes because guys are much better athletes today than the guys all time greats fought in the past. That's just facts. People are blinded by the Floyd hate though. Anyone who wants to put down a thousand on Manny though. Come holla. I already got four bets on Floyd and hes never lost me money. It's sad fools won't respect his technical skills and will just act like females and hate him over gay female shit.

I also love it that. So let me school you right quick....

What Tyson said, i and anyone who knows a damn thing about Sports have been saying for years, its not breaking news. You can't compare Athlete from era B to athlete in era A. People evolve and the sport evolves. Does that mean that era A athlete is better? No. Is Dwight Howard better than Wilt Chamberlain? Is Ronaldo better than Pele? No, but if we transporter them back to the old Era they would shit on everyone and be the GOAT.


You can't compare it like that, you have to see what they did in their time, compare them with others in their time and how much better were they than anyone else in their time. Is Ronaldo good? yes but he's not head and shoulder above everyone else like Pele was. And thats why Pele and Jordan are the GOATS, even though current players are better athlete then them and would school them if they were to play.


And finally thats why FMM won't ever be a GOAT. Is he good? yes, probably the best of his era, but he isn't close to what Ali and SRR were in their time. When Ali and SRR came along, they were out of this world good. Better than everyone else, but also better than anything anyone else had seen. Also fought way better competition. If half of the fighters SRR fought were born in FMM era, there would be no FMM.


FMM the better athlete but no the better fight.


Basically What i said here (i explained it better in this quote, i think)

Mrbw, I completely agree But at the same time you can't say a Cain is better than a Fedor. Because they fought in different times. Yes If a they both fought each other in their primes Cain would win but that doesn't mean Cain is better. You know what i mean?


Like Pele is considered the best ever. But if you put a mid tier player back in the 70s they would be better than him. But again doesn't mean he's a better player. The way you compare , is how good were they compared to others in their time. And imo Fedor was way superior to other fighters in his time than Cain is now.


So imo Fedor>>>>Cain


Sports evolve, people evolve so an athlete in the future is going to be better than the past. Thats what makes comparing a modern athlete to an athlete who was active in the early stage of their sport very tricky

This is just your opinion though. The thing about GOATS is theyre rarely recognized while theyre active. Imo, Floyd, unlike most fighters of our era, could have fought and been a top fighter in any era. His defense alone is arguably the best ever. His plus/minus stats are ridiculous...head and shoulders above the rest. The reason its easy for Floyd to fight at 38 is because of his fighting style and defense not because he's fighting bums lmao. The hate for this dude is crazy.
