OK, straight up, I think the guy who has not one loss on his resume will win May 2. Nothing ground-breaking about that prediction. I think Floyd Mayweathers’ ability to dissect a foe, make him pay for being off balance, catching him in bteween shots, his majestic reflexes, his uncanny innate ability to sense when a punch is coming, I think all this stuff makes “Money” a 5 to 1 favorite in my own mental sports book come May 2.
But I’m kicking those odds to down to 3.5 to 1 after hearing Manny’s convicted talk about why he thinks, no, KNOWS he will beat Floyd at the MGM.
“I have to be a warrior in the ring on May 2 and fight like it is the last fight of my life. I need to fight every round like each one is the last round of my life. For the past five years this is the fight I have dreamed of and prayed for. And now that this fight is a reality I am going to prove that it was worth the wait.”
Like it…Like the acknowledgement that this one is different, for the whole enchilada, and a side of sauce..
“The strategy is to make every round the fight,” Manny continued. “To win the fight I must win each round. And to win each round I must overwhelm him with speed, punch volume and power. If the opportunity to knock Floyd out presents itself, I will take advantage of it.”
Oh mercy, the resounding roars which will be heard in the heavens if that happens…
“I know what it will take to beat Floyd and I will leave no doubt that I won on May 2. None. That is the ‘Manny Pacquiao’ Floyd will face on May 2. It is time for Floyd to lose.”
Call me a sucker, but my personal sports-book just kicked the odds to 3 to 1 in favor of Floyd.
Maybe it is time for Floyd to lose?
