Losing to the May weather.
Hey guys and gals, loyal readers of my reviews, mates of class and friends of old. Normally, I'd be up and about with random reviews about anything from cars to consumer electronics and an occasional tribute to a close friend. But there is a large fuss recently. Something about an innocent and clean fighter and the other being a trash-talking, two-bit, baldy twat. So guess what?
This up on the blog, I feature the Fight of the Century!
Let's get ready to rumbuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuule! as Michael Buffer would say.
I'm sure that most of you, including myself, are infuriated that Manny was once again cheated by the corrupt judges at MGM grand. By someone who does nothing but run around like a chicken without a head. And gives free hugs. Well at least he has the decency to give free hugs, no? It's said that Mayweather mastered the business of boxing and Pacquiao mastered the sport of boxing.
One may even ask himself, "is the business of boxing really just running and hugging?" I mean, shit, what's the point of all that training in the gym when all you could've done was join Parkour with the mentality of Olaf?
There was a video of a boxing fight somewhere in the 1920's, I think, where one man was running in circles and the other just pivoting. The man running had a picture of Mayweather's face on it while the one who was pivoting had the face of Pacquiao. That pretty much sums up the so-called Fight of the Century. Bloody hellfire, and Holy Mother of Christ, what's the point of going to the gym, training yourself for 15 years in blood and tears when all that's needed to win is to run and hug? I'm feeling rather quite meh at the moment, dear readers.
There's something of a Conspiracy Theory going on around, folks. Wanna know what it is? I'll just spill the beans and spare you the melodrama. The Official Score Card. Did you know that in the actual ring, Manny Pacquiao was in the red corner and Floyd Mayweather was in the blue, yet in the cards, all three judges placed Pacquiao in the Blue and Mayweather in the Red. Now, if you're someone like me who's an amateur Conspiracy Theorist, you'd be tempted to call Jesse Ventura and his band of conspirators. But then again, I talked to a friend of mine in school tonight after class that it's possible that, yes, the judges could've made the mistake of color codes but the scores are based on where the names were placed.
That does make sense, actually. If you're not so focused on the color codes and more focused on the two fighters, you'd put the score under the deserving name, wouldn't you? Without a shadow of a doubt, I would. But then again, ha-ha-ha, why in the name of hell did the judges score more points for Mayweather than Pacquiao? That definitely doesn't make sense and it certainly sets some alarm bells ringing. Especially since Flip-dick Floyd didn't do nothing but run around.
Let me say that I'm an avid fan of Manny Pacquiao not just because he's a Filipino, like me, but because he fights clean. He maintains his innocence. He maintains humility even after reaching the net worth of several million dollars. Floyd is a dirty fighter who, well, as you can see from the previous paragraph, is nothing but a Flip-dick. He's stupid! Stupid! Utterly, bewilderingly, sneakingly, preposterously stupid.
Motel earthquake extraordinaire!
Let's return with the Conspiracy Theory, shall we? I'd very much like that, if you please.
Another one of these theories is that the judges were paid handsomely to make Pacquiao lose the fight. It seems legitimate. Especially when you consider that boxing is the most corrupt sport in America. Bribe this and bribe that. "We'll pay you a million dollars each if you make Manny lose so there'll be a rematch and we can make more money". And to a point, I agree with that sentence. Especially when you take into consideration that I'm a Filipino-American hybrid and a 3rd-year business student. The aforementioned sentence is a marketing trick and yes, it's a dirty trick to raise more profits. I'm pretty sure many businessmen and businesswomen will agree. And some of them may not.
But that's just one of the theories of many. Take for example another one I just read this afternoon: "Did Pacquiao intentionally want to lose"? As if anything could be more dastardly and shameless as that. I was THIS close to giving them the benefit of the doubt but I decided that it was out of the question. It was sheer and utter idiocy. Buffoonery. Treachery. One of my friends (well, actually, no; more like acquaintance) went so far as to say blasphemy.
That's conviction right there. The epitome of loyalty and Pacquiao patriotism. I shan't complain. To an extent, and deep down, I do believe it somewhat.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Did you know? Floyd Mayweather has had multiple domestic violence cases against him. In 2002, 2004, 2005, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
The information below is taken from Wikipedia:
In 2002, Mayweather was charged with two counts of domestic violence and one count of misdemeanor battery. He received a six-month suspended sentence and two days of house arrest and was ordered to perform 48 hours of community service.
In 2004, Mayweather was given a one-year suspended jail sentence, ordered to undergo counseling for "impulse control" and pay a $1,000 fine (or perform 100 hours of community service) after being convicted of two counts of misdemeanor battery against two women.
In 2005, Mayweather pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge after hitting and kicking a bouncer, receiving a 90-day suspended jail sentence.
On September 9, 2010, it was reported that Mayweather was being sought by police for questioning after his former girlfriend, Josie Harris, filed a domestic battery report against him. Harris accused Mayweather of battery in the past, but those charges were dropped in July 2005 after Harris testified that she had lied and that Mayweather had not battered her. Mayweather was taken into custody September 10, 2010, but was released after posting $3,000 bail. Mayweather was initially charged with felony theft (stemming from the disappearance of Harris's mobile phone); on September 16 two felony coercion charges, one felony robbery charge, one misdemeanor domestic-battery charge and three misdemeanor harassment charges were added.
On December 21, 2011, a judge sentenced Mayweather to serve 90 days in the county jail for battery upon Josie Harris in September 2010. Mayweather reached a deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to misdemeanor battery in exchange for prosecutors dropping the felony battery charge. Mayweather also pled no contest to two counts of misdemeanor harassment, stemming from threats to his children. In addition to the 90-day sentence Mayweather was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service, a 12-month domestic-violence program and to pay a fine of $2,500. On June 1 Mayweather began serving his county jail sentence, and was released in August 2012.
But don't be fooled. Manny Pacquiao also has a few slights.
The following information is also taken from Wikipedia:
Pacquiao has been under the suspicion of alleged illegal steroid/PED usage in the sport of boxing. After having turn down a random blood and urine drug test in 2010 for a boxing match. During this time Pacquiao had been previously storming through multiple weight classes with ease while maintaining both speed and power. After allegations by a proposed opponent for a boxing match that ended in a lawsuit against said boxer, the lawsuit was settled out of court. Since the allegations Pacquiao has yet to score a knockout inside the ring, with a noticeable drop in muscle mass, size, and power in his punches. Pacquiao's very own trainer Freddie Roach has had suspicion of Pacquiao's former strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza. Roach stated that Ariza had been giving Pacquiao "special drinks" without his permission. Roach also stated "One of the reasons I don't work with him [Ariza] anymore is he's a little shady. He used to give Manny a drink before workouts, and I asked him what was in the drink and he would never tell me. I told him I need to know what was in the drinks because you're giving it to my fighter." Well respected boxing aficionado Teddy Atlas has been of the belief that Pacquiao has been on steroids in the past based on what he [Atlas] sees with his eyes. saying the power is the last thing to go in a fighter, and Manny doesn't have his anymore. Atlas also mentioned on ESPN during negotiations between a fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao on the topic of the drug test refusal that the Pacquiao camp sent emails to the Mayweather camp asking "What would the penalty be if our guy tested positive?" the second email said "If he did test positive could we keep this a secret for the benefit of boxing?" Other boxers such as Paulie Malignaggi and Bernard Hopkins have also been outspoken on this topic. However there is no definitive proof on this subject, only speculation.
For your Sunday night delictation and mastication
Now, once again, we come to our last leg of the review. I won't blather anymore, dear readers. Thank you for reading. Have a nice day. Or, in the case of Cebu at the time of this writing, have a nice evening.
