Category — Pacquiao-Mayweather
We listened to the Floyd Mayweather and his fans swear Manny Pacquiao was too chicken to fight “Pretty Boy” in May. We weren’t convinced since it seemed so strange that Mayweather suddenly wanted to fight after running for the past 3 years or so. We figured he believed Juan Manuel Marquez had provided a blueprint to beat Pacquaio and now Mayweather finally would come out from behind his Uncle Roger’s skirt, but we know he still won’t come out to play.
Pacquiao also says he’s a liar. We believe it. Mayweather rarely fights any fighter in his prime because he’s so protective of his unbeaten record. And in this case, he’s still afraid of getting his ass kicked.
Regardless, we don’t have a bout between these 2 when we should be talking trilogy. Can someone, anyone, arrange for this to happen for the boxing public? Didn’t think so.
Pacquiao offers some interesting insight and comments regarding Mayweather.

Someone mentioned our silence on all of the recent talk of a possible Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather showdown, but like we’ve said before, we’ll believe it when the 2 get in the ring. All of the jockeying and barking about a May clash before Floyd heads off to jail was another chapter of their non-sense and more hot air.
Timothy Bradley? Well you could see this coming a mile away when Bob Arum welcomed the undefeated fighter to his camp last year. Bradley and Pac Man will face off June 9 at the MGM Grand for Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight title.

With Floyd Mayweather Jr. heading to jail for 3 months (unless an appeal bails him out), will this be another nail in the coffin of a Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao showdown?

Finally got around to watching the Amir Khan-Lamont Peterson fight, which Peterson won Saturday, but he received a major assist from referee Joe Cooper. Cooper foolishly took away 2 points from Khan for “pushing.” Those 2 points cost Khan the fight.
This also might have screwed up the plans for Floyd Mayweather Jr., who we believed was banking on Khan for a fight next year instead of Manny Pacquiao.

For what? Seriously.
Just as we’ve suspected, Bob Arum continues to hold up the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather fight. He hasn’t been the only problem, but he’s become the biggest 1. Remember, he hates Mayweather.
As Oscar De La Hoya says, for the sake of boxing Bob, step aside and let saner heads prevail.

Though Pac Man won the 3rd fight between these 2, his star dimmed a bit.
Manny Pacquaio is taking more of a beating outside the ring than he did inside it Saturday against Juan Manuel Marquez. Despite earning a majority decision, it seems a majority of writers and fight fans believes Marquez won the fight. Interestingly, Pacquiao threw and landed more punches than Marquez, but that hasn’t stopped many to claim Marquez was robbed.
But a 4th fight between the 2? I don’t think so.

Many folks believe Juan Manuel Marquez won his latest battle with Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas Saturday night, but others believe Marquez didn’t do enough to beat the champ. Regardless, will this be enough for Pacquiao to lure Floyd Mayweather? Plenty of boxing fans believe after this performance, Pac Man is made to order for Mayweather. Best counterpuncher in the business, they say, meaning Pacquiao doesn’t have a chance. It seems curious that all of a sudden Mayweather would drop Manny like a bad habit.
So why does he keep running?

Much was made of a buffed Juan Manuel Marquez at today’s weight-in in Las Vegas. Doesn’t matter. Manny Pacquiao will drop him like a sack of potatoes since Marquez insists he won the 2 previous bouts. Just another notch in Pacquiao’s belt.

We should be talking about a trilogy here, but again we’re fantasizing about the 1st time. Boxing. It’s like being in love with a whore sometimes.
Speaking of whores, Bob Arum, in an interview today with ESPN radio in L.A., wants to raise those pay-per-view prices for Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. to at least $70 or more.
