Best P4P fighter today? Not Pacquiao, says Mayweather


Floyd Mayweather Jr., here in a fight against Oscar de la Hoya.
Months into his retirement, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is again in the headlines, especially since he started talking about the boxing world's best pound-for-pound fighter and Philippine boxing idol, Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather, who retired in July after 15 years as an amateur and a professional, once told David Mayo of the Grand Rapids Press he's so far ahead of Pacquiao and the others being touted as his replacement as next best P4P fighter, he won't talk about them.

"I'm so far ahead of those other bums, I couldn't even tell you," he told Mayo.

Over the weekend, Boxingconfidential.com video correspondent Akbar Muhammad stoked the fire anew between Mayweather and Pacquiao when he wrote that, "The P4P title is about skills...Mayweather has complete skills... (Chad) Dawson is on his way to developing them...Pacquiao won't because he has no one to teach him."

Muhammad added that he believes Pacquiao may have fought fighters who were on their way down.

"Manny's competition has been better, but he caught these guys on the downside of their careers," said Muhammad.

He said that Pacquiao, who is 29 years old, "is closer to 50 when it comes to the mileage on his body."

Muhammad also suggested that a lot of fans have been waiting for Pacquiao to face off with a Black American boxer.

"But he has always avoided that . After Zahir Raheem defeated Erik Morales, the topic of Pacquiao-Raheem was squashed immediately," he said.

But for Boxingconfidential.com executive editor Michael Marley, the revival of the issue about Mayweather may have something to do with Bob Arum, Pacquiao's American promoter.

"You can be sure his (Mayweather's) old grudge against his ex-promoter, Bob Arum, is in the mix with this proclamation," Marley said in his online column.

Marley also disclosed information on why Mayweather retired prematurely in July despite reports that something was being worked on for a fight against Oscar de la Hoya that was supposed to take place in September this year.

"Mayweather is having vision problems. His eye or eyes are not the same as they used to be," Marley said.

No other reason but...

According to Marley, there is no other reason why Mayweather has been saying what he's been saying.

"Mayweather must be having eye problems because there is no other rational explanation for his suddenly declaring that Bad Chad Dawson, who barely beat Gentleman Glen Johnson, is the world’s best fighter, pound for pound," said Marley.

For Marley, the P4P title may have been Mayweather's when he was still active in the ring.

But when he retired, Mayweather effectively handed over the crown to Pacquiao.

"Some would argue that Manny had the mythical title even before Mayweather went into retirement," added Marley.

He further advised Mayweather to have his eyes checked out.

"You may be living in the land of the blind, Mayweather, which makes any one-eyed man your king," he said.

Pacquiao has been quoted as saying that should he win the December 6 megabuck welterweight super bout with Oscar de la Hoya, he may entice Mayweather to come out of retirement and decide once and for all, who's the best P4P around. Roy Medina,

mayweather is afraid of having a blemish on his fighting resume' thats the reason why he is ducking margarito before...if he didnt retire,he might loose against delahoya in a rematch..but still,pacquiao can move up to fight ricky hatton for light welterweight supremacy.still,pacman will be on the top pound for pound list :)

Mayweather is a loudmouth bum! He may have the skills but his gaystyle runnning around has been abhored rather appreciated. How come he's named pretty boy when he looks like an ape- a homo erectus in the making! I'm sick and tired of the this Mayweather thing. He retired so he should shut up his mouth for he got no more business in boxing! Unless he wants to come of retirement and fight Pacquiao next? By the way, who did FM fought with? Controversial win over the late DC, fighting an old ODLH, won over another loud-mouth Zab Judah, and an overweight Baldomir. Why duck Cotto and Mayorga if he is indeed the p4p fighter? Manny faced the best in his division and never ducked anyone unlike FM who's got nothing bad loudmouth and bl_ck a___! Same as you Zaten! Get lost! Join the blindwagon of this Gayweather!
