It was the second gift of his career following the gift decision he received in his first fight with Castillo. Not sure if you recall that fight, but Castillo gave Floyd fits with his aggression and pressure. He was also a decent counter puncher. Manny is faster, stronger, and more accurate than Castillo could ever hope to be. Floyd's dad and uncle knew that and wanted no part of him.

I have not seen it completely

I saw the first few rounds and the last couple of rounds. Mayweather seem to be winning in the beginning, but Castillo did get the better of him in the last few rounds. I am not totally sure.

What i wonder is if Mayweather's shoulder roll is effective against a unorthodox fighter such as manny who throws very powerful and quick left straights. The shoulder roll excels at deflecting power right hooks and straights, but is it effective against lunching left straights? Maybe if they do fight Mayweather will use his highguard in order to beat him to the punch and back step like Marquez in order to let Manny jump at him?

Mayweather has faced other southpaws and faced them often

Mayweathers last KO was against Ortiz when he wasn't looking. A fight that defined his character and lack of substance.

What a silly assertion. Whose fault is it if Ortiz wasn't looking? Whose fault is that Ortiz delivered a dirty intentional head butt that ultimately led to his undoing?



Basic tenet of boxing.

I can't see how any real fan of boxing or Mayweather can be satisfied with that garbage win. Then again, if you are a fan of his you're easily impressed to begin with. There is such a thing as sportsmanship, perhaps you've heard of it?

Blah, blah, blah. It was a 100% legal win, bottom line.

Protect yourself at all times. Perhaps you've heard of it?

The list is longer than just 50-cent and Hagler saying Floyd is ducking Manny..........

Skip Bayless – “Did Floyd DUCK Manny Pacquiao?”
50 CENT – “Yes. That’s a 100 million dollars, and he just left it. At this point, it’s more him sorting out who’s the perfect opponent than him fighting the toughest fighter to fight.”

STEPHEN A SMITH (longtime die-hard Floyd-supporter), ESPN. – “I’m saying because of the Manny Pacquiao I saw yesterday, I have to believe that Floyd is DUCKING.”

MIKE TYSON – “Hey listen, he doesn’t want to fight the guy, it’s obvious. I don’t know if he’s scared of him or not, but he just obviously doesn’t want to fight the guy.”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR. – “My son fighting that little man, I’m concerned about my son’s life.”
TIM BRADLEY – “Floyd doubts himself. Why won’t he fight Manny? Scared, man. He don’t wanna fight that. Floyd don’t wanna fight that. He don’t wanna see Manny in the ring.”

LARRY HOLMES – “Pacquiao did all he can. He did all I would have done. I think Mayweather just got a little too scared if you ask me. If he thinks Pacquiao is taking drugs so what, he should just say: ‘You take it, you kill yourself that isn’t going to help you, because with my talent and ability I believe I can still beat you.’ But he was scared to take that challenge. If they never fight it won’t be Pacquiao’s fault. Every time they came round to fighting, Mayweather put his excuses in.”

JAMES TONEY – “It shows you right there that Mayweather’s not a man. If you be the best fighter in the world, you fight the guys, know what I’m sayin’? No matter, don’t put down no stupid ***** stipulations, right. Hey, he should be a little scared. And Pacquiao is proving he’s one of the best fighters in his era, in this decade.”

MICHAEL IRVIN – “I want Mayweather to stop messing around and making us brothers look bad by running. Okay, listen. Stop running, man. You’re making the brothers look bad. Get in the ring, even if you lose, it’s an honorable loss.”
ATG radio – “Do you really think that we’ll ever see Manny Pacquiao/Floyd Mayweather fight?”

GEORGE FOREMAN – “No. Not at all. No, it’s not gonna happen. Mayweather had a chance to do that fight years ago, and maybe for good reasons, he didn’t want it because there was a chance that , in early when he made up his mind to come back in boxing, Pacquiao would’ve run over him! Then they got a little even in time, and then Mayweather got pretty smart and understood, hey, why? I’m making all this money without fighting him, why fight him? So now there is definitely no reason to do it.”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR – “My health is more important than money. They can take all the money, my health is more important.”

Even Roy Jones say Floyd ducked Pac

Were any of those people there when Manny flatly turned down Mayweather's attempt to make the fight yet again? No? Thanks for playing.

There were no true subsequent attempts by Floyd to make the fight. That's why he ordered Olympic drug testing to begin with. He was scared and needed an out. It's been all smoke and mirrors. Floyd giving the illusion that he wants the fight but in reality he has chosen every possible path to avoid it.
