  • Reply to: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao Scorecard by glassjoe   7 years 7 months ago

    Floyd hit Pacquiao more than I remembered. I think Pacquiao was doing the exact opposite of what he needed to do to win. He needed to hit at angles, he hit in a straight line. He needed to cut off the ring, Floyd took the center(except for rounds 4,6, and the end of 10). He needed to move his head, ZERO head movement. This last one is the most important, he needed to start fast.

    If your someone like Floyd who doesn't watch his opponent before a fight, then you need to keep them uncomfortable. You can not under any circumstance give them time to figure you out. Especially if your fighting Floyd. If Pacquiao would have simply started faster he would found himself ahead early and would have built confidence early. The only time Pacquiao fought with confidence was in round 4 after he hurt Mayweather. From then on it was Floyd dominating the action inside the paint.

    The other advantage of starting fast is that if your fighting a guy like Floyd who RARELY and I mean rarely finds himself behind in a fight is that as the rounds go on then he might want to let his hands go more. He might create openings for himself by say trying to turn the tide of a fight with a punch or just because you are starting to doubt your offense.

    I thought I would find a fair amount of things that Floyd was doing wrong but I didn't find much. When he got hurt in round 4 it's because he stayed in the pocket for too long. The only other problem is that guys like Floyd can sometimes get too caught up with their defense. What I mean is that they can become so obsessed with making their opponent ineffective by slipping, sliding, weaving that they forget to generate any offense of their own. Also when you are trapped in this defensive zone you often leave your opponent chances to land punches provided they can get off first.

    That didn't happen often but when it did Pacquiao failed to capitalize on it. Is Floyd unbeatable? No. Off the top of my head I can think of a few fighters who would beat him. Erislandy Lara, Amir Khan, Kell Brook, Keith Thurman, and I personally think the Charlo Brothers are the future of boxing so I would go with them too.

    Damn, that's the most boxing that I've talked in a while. Now I got to go back to the Horror Science Fiction story that I'm writing. It'll be worth $800!!!

    I doubt it, then again it would be the third time in the last month or so that you made a really accurate prediction.

    Personally I'll need to watch this one again before I can feel comfortable posting a score. It isn't easy to really watch a fight when you have five friends who don't know anything about boxing watching it with you. From what I did see it looked like Manny missed a couple of opportunities and his typical last minute of the round rallies came too late. He did do a better job though at making Floyd miss but I think Manny should have took a page from Maidana's book and start fast not letting Floyd get comfortable. The first mistake was made in the first round when Pacquiao tried to feel Floyd out. I'll probably score the fight closer than Lederman but probably will still have it for Floyd. I don't think Alberto's card is wrong though. I'm sure when I give the fight a second look I'll find out plenty of things that Floyd did wrong as well.

    I did find those rounds hard to score, just a terrible night for Manny, I thought it was a one sided fight to be honest, Would you like to see a rematch?

    I will watch it again but I have a feeling what actually happened in the round is somewhere in between what we saw.

    Just watched round 5 again. Williams was the busier fighter but was hitting nothing other than glove. Just din't see him hitting any clean punches. Lara got 5-7 really clean shots in. That's why I gave Lara the round.
