B.YONEST “Sports” NEWZ: I mean, look at the MANS resume!!! Mayweather
I’m not the greatest fan of boxing nor am I the most versed on the Champions of yesteryear, but I will say almost none (if any) of them are UNDEFEATED. Never losing is an unbelievable feat to accomplish on any level at ANY sport. An undefeated football team that goes on to win the State, National or World Championship is astonishing. Look @ the 1972 Miami Dolphins, for instance. They completed the task of finishing the season 17-0 and are STILL the only NFL team to finish the season undefeated. Fast forward 28 years and let’s talk about Floyd “Money” Mayweather.
41-0 as a boxer is unfathomable. Mayweather has changed classes, he’s switched his style and last night he faced one of his toughest tasks to date. You can only defeat the people you play and/or fight. Mayweather has defeated them ALL. 41-0. “Sugar” Shane Mosley looked uncomfortable, nervous and in disarray for most of the fight. In the 2nd round (as most of you know), he caught Mayweather w/ TWO severe punches that rocked his world. Mayweather’s knees buckled and it looked like he was going to his the mat for his first time, but it seemed to fuel and energize Mayweather in later rounds. I believe Mayweather won every round after the 2nd. That’s saying somethin’ right there.
Mayweather was facing unfamiliar territory and found a way to regroup, bounce back and take COMPLETE control of the fight AFTER a round that left him looking “beatable..” I was hoping for a knockout, but the fight didn’t “necessarily” let me down. I wasn’t expecting a knockout unless Mosley was to be victorious. I don’t know if I think Mayweather has “knockout” power. He’s strategic, smart and the fastest handed human I’ve seen. His “stick and duck” method caught Mosley off guard time and time again. Whoever is next to step in the ring w/ Floyd better be ready. “Money” Mayweather looks just as good as expected. What’s left for Mosley? Time will tell, but last night answered an extensive amount of questions for me. Mayweather is a top fighter of ANY class. Is he one of the greatest OF ALL TIME? How can you argue with PERFECTION?
