Re: Does Floyd Have The Right To Tell 3G To Step Up? The Definitive Analysis & Final Word On Whom Cherry Picks & Mayweather Detracts The Most.
Yes there's no doubt Floyd played his cards and opponents reasonably shrewdly.
Just as there's no doubt he was also a brilliant tactician and boxer.
What's interesting (to me) though is, to what extent other fighters play and/or played their cards and opponents reasonably shrewdly too - sometimes to a greater extent and via being even more calculated when it came to risks - yet (by comparison) they got a free pass for it.
Wait until you see the nested digression "entanglement" that I design for this piece covering (in detail) the risk management approach K2 have used for Gennady Golovkin; whom, by the way, I (still) happen to think is a very good boxer and fighter.
Perhaps Triple just needs to step up the non-mandatory-title-defense competition a little (as he has greater control over those matches' opponents) - remember his claims about fighting anyone in light/super middleweight - and also cease being as comfortable he is ("no-one will fight me") with the unique situation that currently exists in light middleweight, and boxing in general.
Finally, in relation to your story about Scotty; funny stuff.
Those guys are always a scream - especially the ones that, later in life, find they cant adjust back to normal society - whatever that is.
