Floyd Mayweather, Jr. tries to focus on Manny Pacman Pacquiao's Possible Waterloo and Russian weather (Winter)!

What a great sight for the boxer they call Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather, Jr. as he surveys the field on how to deal with this tough Knockout artist by the name of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao!

''There are only but a few choice strategies on how to beat this ambitious pretender to my throne''--the boxing's Defense Specialist must have said.

Of course this guy was irked that many people dare compare him to this pretender they call the Pacman. He was visibly upset and wants to reclaim his throne as the number 1 pound for pound boxer in the world.

He might just as well be stating the very words of the Duke of Wellington, Commander of the Allied Forces (England, Austria, The Netherlands, and Prussia) against Napoleon Bonaparte just before the great battle of Waterloo.

"This pretender Pacman shall go the way of Napoleon Bonaparte, who, just like him, succumbed to the bad weather of Waterloo and the unforgiving Russian weather (Winter). And just like these two historic   weathers of those    times, this time, this weather, this Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather, Jr., shall send him to his retirement, not to the Islands of Elba or St. Helena but to an Orthopedic  hospital in his home island in the Pacific".   

Can boxing's best pound for pound boxer of the immediate past reclaim his old glory? He now shouts on top of his voice: "I never abdicated my throne in the first place! I am still the beast pound for pound boxer in the world!"

"This is going to be WAR and this is going to be the Pacman's WATERLOO! He shall learn his lessons in boxing belatedly in his career! And this shall teach these so called boxing experts (including this writer!) a good lesson in strategy and tactics inside the ring!"

Well, we must give the Pretty Boy a little understanding in his words, because, somehow, the spirit of that victorious General Wellington at Waterloo has taken over his soul!

And the Battle of Waterloo shall again rage inside the ring and in theaters and homes of millions of fans worldwide!

Who shall be the victor? Would it be again the Duke of Wellington (Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather) or the magnificent little general of France (Manny Pacman Pacquiao) who have captured the heart and imagination of the boxing world?

Can Manny Pacquiao learn the lessons of Waterloo and the Russian Winter?

Can he beat the wily Master of Defense and one of the best strategist in the ring?
