Despite the far from the best relations with the legendary Filipino Manny Pacquiao, the ex-world champion in five weight categories, Floyd Mayweather, nevertheless admitted that he was perhaps the strongest opponent with whom he had to enter the ring.
“Perhaps Manny Pacquiao is the best fighter I’ve ever fought. It’s all because of his agility. He’s a tough fighter and I understand why he won so many fights. I understand why he will enter the Hall of Fame. It’s all about the certain movements that he makes.
My toughest opponent was probably a guy named Emanuel Augustus. The Drunken Master was tough. But Miguel Cotto was very, very strong physically, “Floyd Mayweather said on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast.
Recall that the Mayweather – Pacquiao duel took place in May 2015 and ended with Floyd’s victory by unanimous decision.
