Top 10 Reasons Floyd Mayweather Needs to Man-ny Pacquiao Up

Antonio Margarito faces Manny Pacquiao

This could be you Floyd Mayweather. Are you afraid of Manny Pacquiao now? Oh wait, you already were. In fact, I already wrote a post on Floyd Mayweather the chump. Manny is the real Champ.

So here it is Floyd — the Top 10 Reasons Floyd Mayweather Needs to Man-ny Pacquiao Up and get in the ring.

1) Aren’t you a competitor? If you were half as good as you say you are you’d be confident that you could beat Manny — with ease. I mean, this guy’s got 3 losses and you’ve never been beat.

2) Your running your mouth and not backing it up. You’re going on the internet and posting videos of yourself calling Manny “a little yellow chump.” If you actually thought this was true, you’d get in the ring and knock him out in the first round. Even you know you won’t be considered the best ever til you beat Manny, so get on it. All of the best fighters in history talked trash and backed it up. See Mohammed Ali. I suggest you do the same.

3) You are 5’8 with a 72″ reach to Manny’s 5’6 with a 67″ reach. Not to mention you are hailed for you incredible speed. On paper, you’ve got a win half in the bag.

4) You point out Manny’s losses to downplay him as an opponent. His last loss was in 2005 to Erik Morales in 12 rounds. He proceeded to fight and beat Morales twice in 2006, the second victory a KO in 3 rounds.

5) You beat Oscar de la Hoya when you fought him, a very controversial split decision in 12 rounds. You’re lucky you are considered undefeated still. When Manny fought Oscar the fight had to be stopped by the referee in the 8th round for Oscar’s safety.

6) Both of you also fought Ricky Hatton. You won by TKO in 10 rounds — Pacquiao KO’d him in 2 rounds.

7) Despite his losses, Manny’s got a lot on his side of the argument for being the better fighter. He’s got titles in 8 weight classes, and the photo above of what Pacquiao did to Antonio Margarito last week will go down in boxing history. And Margarito is no slouch — he was 38-7 with 27 KO’s going into the fight. What have you done lately Floyd?

8)We know you’re all about money. You guys are 32 and 33 now, and given Manny’s crushing of Margarito the prize money will never be higher. Do the fight before you are both over the hill.

9) Do it, because deep down there is a little twinge of fear in you. You’d never admit it, but when you lie in bed at night it’s there. Why would you not fight him if it wasn’t there?

10) Do it, because if you don’t, you’ll never go down as the best fighter ever because you didn’t go through Manny. Sure, your reputation is on the line — you’re undefeated, and a loss would be crushing for your legacy. But without beating Manny, your legacy will not be what you want it to be. For either of you to forever be considered the best, you’ve got to beat the other. I thought you were boxers. Why are you shying away now?

Think about it. This one is a no-brainer.

Floyd Mayweather — You’re the Chump

Mayweather Pacquiao

I feel that the only way to appropriately get back at Floyd Mayweather for his recent profanity-laced, racist, and homophobic video rant calling out fellow fighter Manny Pacquiao is with a direct response of my own. So without further adieu,

A Note to Floyd Mayweather by howiGit

Dear Mr. Mayweather,

In your recent U-stream video you were quoted as saying, “We’re going to cook that little yellow chump. Once I stomp the midget, I’ll make that mother f—– make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice.” Isn’t that nice. You then later apologized by stating, “I love everybody. Some of my guys are Muslim. Some of my guys are Jews. Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Mexicans, white, it doesn’t matter. There’s nothing but love in my heart, you know what I’m saying?”

Are you kidding me dude?

First of all, you are a boxer you moron. If you’re going to call someone out, aren’t you supposed to do it with your fists? Second of all, why are you apologizing if you’re such a “I don’t give a f—” persona like you pretend to be? You keep asserting that Pacquiao uses performance enhancing drugs, yet he agreed to your terms regarding drug testing and you are the one not signing for the fight. Why are you hiding behind the camera bro?

As a matter of fact, I know why. It’s because you’re afraid. You’re the chump. You’re undefeated, and you know that by fighting Pacquiao your career is on the line. If you lose, he goes down in history as the best fighter of our generation. Then your just the chump who he beat. The coulda been, shoulda been, but wasn’t undefeated champ. You know you’ve never fought anyone like Pacquiao so now your hiding.

As for Manny? He didn’t need to respond to your nonsense. He took the highroad, which he can easily do seeing as you were the one not to sign for the fight. You say it’s about money. BS. If you think he’s such a chump, prove it — just go and knock him out. Stop hiding behind your video camera, you clown.

You absolute chump,

howiGit

PS. I bet you all the money in the world that if he released a video calling you the “N” word and telling you to bake him some fried chicken you’d be in the ring tomorrow.

The Top 10 Athletes of My Generation

Let’s first begin this post by defining my generation. For the sake of this list, the athlete must have played the majority of their career between 1990 and 2010.

So what makes an athlete the best? Championships, pure talent, statistics, and longevity all certainly play a large role. But this list is more than that. These are the athletes who in my opinion, did their respective sports in a way that made us say “WOW!” A way that the game or event or match had never been done before. I must say that compiling a list like this is very tough, and I’m not even sure I’m 100% convinced on this list. So please, feel free to argue and suggest other athletes — but you’d better back it up. In no particular order…..

1) Michael Jordan
Why he’s on the list? 31 points per game, 6 NBA championships, a clutch competitor, and spectacular talent.

2) Shaun White
Why he’s on the list? The best snowboarder in history. Including the Olympics and the X-Games, he has 10 Gold medals, 3 Silvers and 2 Bronze.

3) Michael Phelps
Why he’s on the list? He’s not quite human. He went 8 for 8 in Gold Medals at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing — and won several events by absolutely silly margins.

4) Tiger Woods
Why he’s on the list? With 14 majors and counting, he’s still the 2nd best golfer ever to Jack Nicklaus. But, he’s got at least 10 years of his prime left. He’s hit more money shots than Ron Jeremy.

5) Roger Federer
Why he’s on the list? He blew past Pete Sampras with relative ease to become the greatest player in tennis history.

6) Tom Brady
Why he’s on the list? He’s young, he’s cool as hell under pressure, he’s won 3 Super Bowls and set all kinds of records. And he did it at first without a legitimate receiving crew.

7) Wayne Gretzky
Why he’s on the list? He’s far and away the greatest hockey player ever. Look at any all-time hockey statistic — there are way to many to mention just one.

8)Lance Armstrong
Why he’s on the list? He beat cancer and won the Tour de France 7 consecutive times. I couldn’t complete it once.

9) Manny Pacquiao
Why he’s on the list? He’s the first fighter to win 7 different titles in 7 different divisions — and Floyd Mayweather is afraid of him.

10) Ken Griffey Jr.
Why he’s on the list? 630 home runs, 10 Gold Gloves, and never a mention of steroids. Junior could do it on both sides of the field. In 6 seasons in his prime (2001-2006) he averaged 92 games per year (not including several other injured seasons). If he’d averaged 150 games per year instead, he would have ended up with 875 home runs. That’s right, I said it, 875.

I know you all disagree so have at me. Also look for the Top 10 Hitters and the Top 10 Pitchers of my generation coming up soon.
