PACMAN-MONEY FIGHT: THE RACE FOR BOXING SUPREMACY

By Dionis Jacobe

20 Jun 2010



The titans of world boxing, Congressman-elect Manny Pacquiao (Pacman) and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. (Money May) are supreme athletes in the sweet science. They come only once in a lifetime. Their skill, athlecism, discipline and intelligence separate them from other elite fighters. But, these two endangered fighters have yet to face each other in the race for boxing supremacy. If the fight happens, it would be a CLASH OF THE TITANS!

Prior to making predictions of who will triumph in this historic race, it is worth to mention the unseen yet important variables that would play a controlling motive in the minds of boxing fan's analysis of who would perfectly stir the wheel of fortune!

DRIVING FORCE

– Manny fights for God, country, people, and his constituents in the lone legislative district of the province of Sarangani. Monetary consideration, therefore, I would say, is only secondary considering the wealth he accumulated throughout the years.

– Money May – fight for money to finance his lifestyle, fame and fortune.

FIGHTING STYLE

– Manny – extremely ferocious and relentless in his attacks, able to throw powerful punches at a blinding speed in different angles, thereby putting his opponents in a defensive mode. His superb footwork and unparalleled balance enables him to unleash explosive and thundering punches which usually end the bouts ahead of schedule.

– Mayweahter – a defensive wizard with pin point accuracy in his counter attack be it in the body or in the face of his opponents. His perfect defensive stance puts opponents into a sheer dancing buddy, who would always dance to the music of Money May. His laser guided and razor sharp speedy punches would accumulate points and eventually bring frustrations towards his opponents.

ATTITUDE

– Manny – projects the image of a humble yet ferocious fighter in the ring.

– Mayweather – embrace the image of a villain especially during promotion of his fights. Because of this, fans would love to see him lose and put an end to his perfect record.

RING PERFORMANCE

– Manny - endeared not only by the fight fans, but also all the people throughout the world owing to his humility in and out of the ring. But, once the bell rings, his animal instinct and warrior-like attitude starts to takeover like a possessed fighter. This, unlike other fighters, brings excitement into the fight no matter who the opponent is.

– Mayweather – his superb conditioning and unparalleled counterpunching style coupled with his excellent footwork and blazing handspeed enables him to beat his opponents very easily. His defensive and counterpunching style had been very effective for him, but to the fans, the same had been very tiresome and a humdrum to watch. However, this boring style gives him a perfect undefeated record.

QUALITY OF OPPONENTS

– Manny – defeated the Mexican legends in the likes of Marco Antonio Barrera (126 pounds, Erick Morales (126 pounds), Juan Manuel Marquez (130 pounds), American David Diaz (135 pounds), British sensation Ricky Hatton (140 pounds), another legend in Oscar de la Hoya (147 pounds), the great Miguel Angel Cotto (147 pounds). Please observe that when these fighters fought Manny, all them are in their prime and notably in the peak of their career, and inarguably the number one in the division they are fighting.

– Money May - defeated Arturo Gatti, (140 pounds), Zab Judah (147 pounds), Carlos Baldomir (147 pounds), Oscar DeLaHoya (154 pounds) Ricky Hatton (147 pounds and Juan Manuel Marquez (147 pounds), and Shane Mosley (147 pounds). Please note that when Money fought these fighters, they were not anymore in the pinnacle of their careers nor being in the top 5 in the weight division they were fighting.

Having laid down all the useful tools in arriving at a more realistic individual predictions in the much coveted race for boxing supremacy, coupled with the latest development of Pacquiao having agreed to Money May's condition of a 14-day cut-off on the blood testing controversy, which instantly killed the March 13, 2010 showdown, the RACE for the boxing supremacy is ON.

What is thrilling on this race is the energy, ferocity and superb mind and body conditioning that these titans will bring into the ring. Fans expect to see action from start to finish with their contrasting and never-surrender attitude in the fight, for, a win in this fight would cement his legacy as SUPREME fighter of all time.

Who knows, there lies an intriguing boxing trilogy between Manny and Money May in the future.
