Ndou backs Mayweather over Marquez

BOXING is so motivated by jealousy that it is rare for a boxer to talk positively about another boxer.

BOXING is so motivated by jealousy that it is rare for a boxer to talk positively about another boxer.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

Mayweather, the American who is based in Las Vegas, Nevada, brags about his ability while Pacquiao, from the Philippines, remains humble.

They make boxing, one of the hardest sports, look so easy but do not enjoy the credit they deserve.

Money aside, Mayweather - whose nickname is "Pretty Boy" - prefers to be known as "Money Mayweather".

Mayweather, 32, won WBC titles at super featherweight, lightweight, junior welterweight, as well as the IBO International, IBA and WBC welterweight divisions.

He defeated top-name fighters like Angel Manfredy, Diego Corrales, Jesus Chavez, Arturo Gatti, Zab Judah, Oscar de la Hoya and Ricky Hatton.

This arrogant fighter, who stopped Phillip "Time Bomb" Ndou at the prime of his career in 2003 in the seventh round, is still to taste defeat after 39 fights with 25 knockouts.

Fight fans come to venues in the hope they will be the first to see him lose.

Mayweather's last fight, a million-dollar clash with Hatton, ended with victory in the 10th round in Nevada in December last year.

Mayweather retired after that fight. He will make a highly anticipated return to face Juan Manuel Marquez next month.

Instead of focusing on what he can or will do against Marquez, doubting Thomases have concentrated on the arrest of his uncle and trainer, Roger Mayweather, for allegedly assaulting a female boxer, Melissa St Vil. Lovemore Ndou is the only fighter who talks highly of Mayweather.

"He is such a talented fighter. Like him or hate him, Floyd will beat both Marquez and Manny Pacquiao with one hand behind his back," said the Australia-based South African who holds the IBO welterweight strap.
