Boxing Pacquiao, What happens when you’re a good fighter, you cannot find anyone else to fight? Manny Pacquiao, the best pound for pound fighter in the world, is a man who fired shots at angles that many in the sport has ever seen. But more than a boxer principal – who is a charismatic congressman in his native Philippines, with designs on the presidency. Pacquiao, who grew up in the streets, he likes to say that strives to give people some relief from their suffering. He wore yellow gloves for his fight Saturday night to symbolize their unity with the poor of his country. “It’s not a fighter, he is an artist,” said Freddie Roach, his trainer. But he was frustrated because he had not been able to entertain the crowd booed the lack of action in his fight with Sugar Shane Mosley. Pacquiao won by unanimous decision and retained the welterweight championship and mythical pound for pound crown, but had difficulty finding the bubirds. “Not my fault,” said Pacquiao, a normally cheerful man, as a way of explanation. “Of course I’m happy that I won the fight, but my first concern is the satisfaction of the crowd. I want to give a good performance. I think he felt my power. But what will I do if my opponent does not want to fight hand to-toe? ”
Mosley, one of the best fighters in the United States, had the unfortunate task of facing Pacquiao. They clashed in front of 16,412 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Mosley is 39. It has been a professional wrestler of eighteen years and is a future Hall of Fame, but seemed to forget to throw punches. He was with his cousin? Yes, but he has always been considered “a warrior”, boxing the language of someone at risk of physical harm to win and Pacquiao trained harder than for any previous fight with the expectation that Mosley will attack everything in their aresenal. The array was empty. His blow was so shy that seemed a father stroking the cheek of her child. He landed 82 blows Pacquiao negligible 182. He blamed his performance on Pacquiao’s speed and power, could not handle. Interestingly, also blamed a foot blister, which seemed an obstacle to their frantic retreat of the Philippines.
There was a moment of excitement In Round 3, when Pacquiao beat Mosley with a left instructive and sugar fell to the canvas. The crowd buzzed with nervous excitement, as they always do when experiencing a fall. Mosley was like a child in a supermarket that they could not find his mother. But before the Pacman, as his fans call him, might kill him, left calf muscle Pacquiao became close to that between rounds cornermen implored his massage. Leg cramps have been a problem throughout his training runs in the Hollywood Hills and it was feared could explode again. Pacquiao did and could not turn and follow Mayweather as ruthless as he wanted. It was an opportunity for Mosley, but his heart was not committed to capitalizing on it.
Cramps, blisters, … Who knows? But I was sure that millions of dollars are pumped into the event, making it a showcase for the game of boxing. ShowTime, which broadcast the fight, he tirelessly promoted the fight for a couple of months through a four-part documentary and publicity during the basketball tournament of the NCAA through its parent company, CBS. The fight was a big problem for the boxing, which already is on par with poker in popularity as a televised sport. Is a strong economy and ShowTime charges and 54.95 for people watching on television at home? While the pay-per-view buy numbers will not be known for a couple of days, it is expected that more than one million, is considered excellent in boxing pay per view business. Taking into account the participation of the CBS and the growing popularity of Pacquiao – who has appeared on 60 Minutes, Jimmy Kimmel, and many other television programs – the fight was billed as one that would bring the mainstream in boxing and help revive in the United States. (Yes, this seems to be an issue once a year in the game of boxing promotion.) Millions Pacquiao-Mosley saw but keep them interested in sport? In Pacquiao press tour met with President Obama in the White House. The Commander in Chief said he thought on seeing the fight because he is a fan of Pacquiao. Of course, nobody believes that Pacquiao would lose, but boxing experts – writers of matchmakers – thought it would be an exciting fight. The president probably was the night the night before the fight was over.
Mosley, who earn about $ 10 million and for their efforts, like a man who should have retired long ago. Mosley was an 8-1 favorite, but promised a fight. It was full of confidence and I said no one bid for it “would be rich.” When I visited Mosley in his training camp in Big Bear, California, told me that the fight would be “full of fireworks.” Roach, the best coach in the world announced Saturday morning that would help the U.S. Olympic boxing team for the 2012 Games, and in the press conference, gave the publicists Nike t-shirt that read: “You know Freddie.” Well, Freddie definitely knew that Mosley “legs were gone. I do not think Mosley tried to win the fight. At that point in boxing, it’s time to call it a day.”
After the contest, as the crowd snaking its way into the night in Las Vegas, everything was black humor among journalists, who gathered at the press conference after the fight. Boxing has lost its balance in mainstream newspapers, but because Pacmania, big time reporters were generously represented in the struggle. Due to the unilateral nature of the fight and no action, “some of the sportswriters were wondering if they are ever sent to cover another boxing match.
What can be done?
Pacquiao rivals are falling as fast as rooms in a slot machine. In two of the last three fights Pacquiao, his opponents were so overwhelmed by their speed and power that went on a turtle shell-like. In his last fight, broken orbital bone of his opponent and has fought three other world class fighters – Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, and Joshua Clottey – who never returned to the ring. Mosley would be the fourth candidate on the condemned list. Mosley coach calls Rubik cube Pacquiao boxing because nobody can understand. Mosley can take some solace in that he survived, but survival was a hollow victory. In recent fights, Pacquiao has a ridiculous – habit of the strings just to test the power of punching another man – but exciting. It’s fun and people love it. Roach is Pacquiao furious when using this technique suicide because he wants his fighter to take pictures unnecessary. On Saturday, Roach was so overwhelmed by Mosley skills that halfway through the fight that he actually told the PacMan to lean on the ropes. He thought he could attract Mosley in risky behavior, and in turn Pacquiao could bounce off the ropes and fire return and kill it. But Mosley was so confused, intimidated and confused that he refused the opportunity. “Sometimes you enough time,” said Mosley.
In the press conference – and an hour later, over martinis – Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, who also managed Muhammad Ali, spoke of the greatness of Pacquiao and wondered aloud about who could match the PacMan. Pacquiao will fight again in November. Will be against Juan Manuel Marquez, Zab Judah, or the up-and-corner Timothy Bradley. “Every boxer is facing powerless,” said Arum.
So what if it dominates his sport to the point of making it looks ridiculously easy?
Elite fighters, one after another, have not been able to find a way to beat Pacquiao … six years. Pacquiao, 32, is a big plus. He might be the best of his generation. Many people have started to put it in the top ten of all time. But their dominance has become a curse. The most exciting fighter in the world cannot find anyone to fight. Of course, there is a fight that people desperately want to see: Pacquiao Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the best offensive fighter in the world, Mayweather is the best defensive fighter and trash talker Hall of Fame. There is interest worldwide in both struggle and could probably do 35 million each to face each other, making it the biggest ever payday in boxing. Mayweather, who has a perfect record and is worried about losing it, does not seem willing to fight Pacquiao, however. “He would beat the crap out of Mayweather,” said Arum. “I guarantee it. And who knows better which is Floyd Mayweather Jr.”
