Oversized Mayweather Beats Diminutive Marquez

From the moment Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez squared of in round 1 it was obvious the size difference in the 2 fighters was ridiculous. Floyd was bigger taller and thicker than Marquez. The 2 had no business being in the ring together. Put an exclamation on that statement as Floyd dropped Marquez with a single left hook in round 2. From that point on it was all Floyd.


Hell no!

The unanimous decision scores of 118-109,120-107 & 119-106 were petty dead on. But that hardly tells the story.

Give all the credit in the world to Juan Manuel Marquez for ending this fight on his feet and even more credit for turning his back on Floyd when the final bell rang. Marquez got snookered and so did everyone else involved with this promotion.

We all should turn our backs on Floyd…he is not good for the sport. Not as long as he keeps hand picking opponents instead of fighting the best challenges IN HIS WEIGHT CLASS.

Marquez landed his fair share of punches but they did little or no damage to Mayweather at all, and why should they, Marquez was trying to hurt a legitimate Jr. Middleweight with 135 pound punches…it’s just not possible.

Credit to Marquez for taking the challenge head on.

Now let’s see what shenanigans Mayweather has in store for boxing next.
