Manny Pacquiao a great boxer to match Mayweather

Published by:

If he isn't one hell of a salesman, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. did not become the highest paid American athlete in 2013. If not, the best in that regard, he could be one of.

Couple by investing in a brash, cocky persona with exceptional boxing skills and you has the greatest villain. He is the man fans would love to hate. Mayweather plays the "heel" role to perfection and therein lays the trick of his gain: Not because of his impregnable but otherwise not fan-friendly, defense-first style, but simply because they want to see him lose, the crowd patronizes him.

To Mayweather's credit, some of the best lower-weight fighters (Jose Luis Castillo, Diego Corrales, Zab Judah) inside the era have tried to put a stench on his record but to no avail. It's not even close to a secret towards the casual fan that to the better component of two decades, no person ever did, and maybe no person ever will.

An upswing of Manny Pacquiao within the mid-2000s became a beacon of expect Mayweather bashers.

There's this nice guy through the Philippines using a literal rags-to-riches-story, knocking people right and left on his way to being considered the most effective pound for pound fighter on the planet for over 300 weeks.

At last, there is now someone fans would view as a hero, the anti-Mayweather if you will.

What Makes Manny Pacquiao a Champion?

Published by:

Pacquiao uses the double arm block to great effect. They know he can’t just back away, despite the fact that Cotto is super strong, so Pac is pleased to ‘tease’ at long range. He needs to supply a ‘clear and offer danger’ for the bigger, stronger opponent. We perceive the consummate Pacquiao fight strategy to manage strong, dangerous opponents.

Cotto launches an attack and then in response Pacquiao retreats and instantly springs straight back to fire from the old faithful one-two. This is basically the classic double-attack, a popular of Manny’s.

At the beginning of the 2nd round, there are many real eye-catching exchanges of single and double shots at long range. Cotto is extremely proficient and Pac is using the previous faithful double arm block to deal with the incoming power shots from Cotto. We notice Pacquiao at his deadly best having a jab – long left uppercut – long right uppercut out from the double arm block. These shots spear through Cotto’s tight guard. From that time and also for the next 20 seconds, Pacquiao’s long range jobs are simply brilliant, using singles and doubles combined with great footwork.

As the quantity of danger and threat increases with the opponent faced, so Pacquiao’s tactics and execution rise in their effectiveness. That’s what this Pacquiao fight proves, apart from the proven fact that Pac Man can be a highly intelligent boxer.

Make sure to watch the Pacquiao vs Algieri fight this coming November 23rd, China time.
