Boxing fan who likes Floyd (or respects his ability.)
The Floyd lover and Floyd hater boxes have yet to be ticked.
I expect that to be fixed when Rocco and CJ Rock both chime in.
I voted C...Resume is solid but not one that makes you say ok this guy fought the best when they were at their best. His style is solid but he never goes for it, he is content to get a decision even when he could probably get the k.o... One of the best counter punchers/defensive fighters I have ever seen though, with a decent jab and that counter short right cross. Ring generalship is top notch, the one thing I tend to dislike lately is his personality, seems to get worse the more fame and money he gets. His father obviously didn't teach him how to be a good man just a good boxer.
Boxing fan who likes Floyd-
-I hate how he treats women. Think it's deplorable.
-I don't think he is TBE, but don't think he's far from it.
-I admire Floyd's skill and work ethic, but hate the safety first style he has adopted in the ring the past few years. I miss the days when he wanted the stoppage.
-I think Floyd fought the best competition he could, but that some big fights got away due to timing, politics, bad luck...etc. That being said, I feel like Hop, Evander, Oscar, Shane, and Tito all fought tougher competition than Floyd did.
Tremendous skills, tremendous self motivation and business mind, not a fan at all. I look forward to his retirement the longer the promising welters stay stagnate and he instead beats on the speed bag that is Andre Bertos ample head.
Rocco must've hit the wrong one. Results have him as a B, but there is no doubt that he is 1,000% Floyd lover. I mean, truly love, not just saying it. Committed love.
i am of the opinion the poll needs another option as well
i have no problem with his style in the ring, its not the most exciting but i appreciate his talent
he is a complete bell end outside the ring though, i dont think theres ever been a pound for pound bigger bell end in boxing
by calling out mayweather all the time all fighters like khan are doing is making him a bigger name and making him more money
an amazing thing would be if berto turned down the floyd fight on the grounds of floyd being a such a bell end
i realise that would never happen though
Officially the only saddo who has had a girlfriend
Very disappointing indeed, @mikeeod .
I made this poll specifically to see Rocco man up and admit where he really stands.
But for him to claim he's a "C"??!??
Floyd should take back the monogrammed kneepads he gave Rocco for his birthday.
I dislike Floyd but I don't "begrudgingly" say he's skilled next to RJJ he's one of the more dominant and impressive forces I've ever seen box. I don't think he's the greatest of all time, but he's a great fighter, I am disappointed he never unified any division but there are so many belts now a days I understand that it's complicated and it doesn't always make $ sense to make those fights.
So boxing fan between liking & disliking Floyd, but I REALLY dislike his attitude. You can't call someone a bum every second of every day before the fight and then want that pat on the back for beating the guy.
