Stop paying for Mayweather Jr.’s fight

Undefeated boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s next opponent starts with an M, but it isn’t Manny Pacquiao, which is why you should not purchase Mayweather Jr.’s next fight.

Aside from serving two months in prison for domestic battery charges and from his flamboyant lifestyle, Mayweather Jr. is not one people typically root for. Plenty of people actually tune in to watch Mayweather Jr. in hopes of watching him lose for the first time.

Mayweather Jr. is scheduled to face Marcos Maidana, a slow-moving brawler from Argentina on May 5 in a lucrative pay-per-view match. Buyers are expected to shell out $60, or $70 if you want to watch in the comfort of high definition.

While Maidana has 31 knockouts in 35 victories and three losses, he matches up worst stylistically against Mayweather Jr. However, Mayweather Jr.‘s other possible opponent, Amir Khan,  was a young, fast-moving, glass-jawed fighter, but the hand-selection of his opponents is exactly the story of Mayweather Jr.’s career.

Time and time again Mayweather Jr. has let us down with the selection of his opponents. The trend began in 2006 when Mayweather Jr. fought Carlos Baldomir of Argentina for the lineal Welterweight championship. The fight was a typical Mayweather Jr. fight, filled with monotony that had the arena emptying at a rapid pace.

It was at this particular time that a young, relentless, pressure-fighting boxer by the name of Antonio Margarito was making headways.

Margarito was labeled the most feared man in boxing at the time, but instead of choosing to fight Margarito to gain respect from boxing pundits and fans, Mayweather Jr. fought Baldomir. He then went on to fight Oscar De La Hoya and broke into stardom. Mayweather Jr.’s decision to avoid Margarito during his rise would foreshadow his avoidance of Pacquiao.

Here is a breakdown of Mayweather Jr.’s opponents over the years:

2007: Ricky Hatton- A smaller fighter that already proved his vulnerability against bigger fighters. Mayweather won with a TKO in the tenth round.

2009: Juan Manuel Marquez –Again, another fighter too small to compete against Mayweather. Note that Mayweather Jr. did not make weight for this fight, thus did not oblige by the rules. Mayweather cruised to a unanimous decision.

2010: Shane Mosley – an old, past prime fighter. Another dull, unanimous decision.

2011: Victor Ortiz – An unproven young fighter, whom Mayweather Jr. sucker punched his way to victory, much to the ire of boxing critics and fans.

2012: Miguel Cotto – One of Mayweather Jr.’s few exciting bouts, a 12-round unanimous decision.

2013: Robert Guerrero – How the hell did he even get to fight Mayweather Jr.? A boring, one-sided mismatch.

2013: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez – A bland dismantlement of a really good younger fighter.

At an excess of $400 ($59.95 per pay-per-view), only two fights in the past six years were worth purchasing. All but two of them were boring decisions and of the fighters he did manage to stop, one was a small unproven fighter at welterweight Hatton and the other was sucker punched to defeat, Victor Ortiz.

The Alvarez victory drew the interest of boxing fans and generated a record-$150 million from 2.2 million buys, but was another over-hyped matchup that proved to be not worth the price.

In the meantime Pacquiao was moving up in weight and fighting similar foes, but at a much more impressive rate considering nearly all of his opponents at this point were considered much bigger than him.

2008: Oscar De La Hoya – stopped in the 8th.

2009: Ricky Hatton – KO 2

2009: Miguel Cotto – TKO 12

Although Pacquiao has lost high-profile matchups with welterweights Timothy Bradley Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012, the bouts were exciting and gave viewers their money’s worth.

When the time came for Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao to fight, it never happened and most blame Mayweather Jr. for the fight never occurring. His demands and negotiation procedures were so particular, it was off-putting. Everything from the ring walk, to who was announced first, to what name would appear first on the fight promotion was demanded by Mayweather Jr.

Even when Mayweather Jr. demanded Pacquiao submit to Olympic-style drug testing for the bout, it was not enough that Pacquiao comply as the fight would never happen and probably will never happen.

Too much time has elapsed for people to care. Mayweather Jr. is 37 and approaching the end of his career. Manny Pacquiao is 35 and his most recent fight with Bradley Jr. showed he is the not the same fighter he was three years ago.

Mayweather Jr. is arguably the best fighter of this generation. He is as an elusive target as was Pernell Whitaker and James Toney in their primes. He is the master of adjusting to what an opponent does and is most skilled at counter-punching. There are small fragments of time in which he is mesmerizing to watch. He’s dominated most of his foes in the ring, but lately, it seems like his biggest struggles are outside of the ring. It is hard to wonder what his career would be like had he not hand picked his opponents.

As long as Mayweather does not fight the likes of Pacquiao, former Welterweight champion Bradley or Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez , his pay-per-views do not merit the $60 price tag unless you suffer from severe insomnia.

    Manny not the same fighter because he isnt using PEDS

  • Reidy

    Mayweather is the greatest boxer ever to put on a set of gloves.. But everyone has haters I guess. To anyone who truly knows the art of boxing knows it is true.. If he wasnt the best he wouldn’t be undefeated! And the “hand picked opponents” is a load of crap. Floyd has fought multiple world champions, in different weight classes and his record speaks for its self! Oh and the best one’s around ” Manny would beat him ” & ” Floyd is scared of Manny” what a load of shit! its all about manny because floyd has not only won, but still continues to win against every opponent and manny is all that the haters have left to bring up because the fight hasnt happened YET. There is or never has been a boxer with his talent and skill. He will retire an undefeated champion and go down in history as the greatest and everyone else will just be another number of the legend of Floyd Money Mayweather!

    WATCHING FLOYD’S FIGHT IS LIKE WATCHING WWF scripted fights and people buys theses tickets for fun.

  • darrell lee

    The man who controls the resources, controls someone else’s fate. Mayweather do not owe you and I anything. I like how you and Arum gloss over the fact that Mayweather fought everyone has fought everyone outside of Cotto and Bradley first. Mayweather isn’t a brawling and doesn’t front like he is. Pacquiao is currently under Arum and Mayweather has a right not to do any business with Arum. He isn’t trying to put any money in Arum’s pocket. Deal with it. Ironically is you internet hacks spew all this misinformation usually never had a schoolyard fight.

  • MJ

    Stop it. Mayweather was not liked and was said he cannot take the power of baldamir and hatton and the stage was too big for him for delahoya and he fought cotto at 154. PAC man made cotto fight at a catch weight 145 and drained him. All of PAC mans title wins were cAtch weights and never at the true championship weight. Arum continues to fight his fighters against each other. Everyone thinks PAC man is a great fighter. He is nothing and has only fought mayweathers and other fighters sloppy seconds which he knew the blueprint to beat them. Bigger man lets not forget mayweather started his career not at welterweight and he is a smaller guy. He just knows how to fight and is the best ever. His opponent that could beat him was just born somewhere but he will be retired when he starts to box.

      Another moronic Floydiot. It’s really hard to find brains in Fraud Gayweather’s fans. all these people have no brains.

    • Pacfan12345

      floyd fought canelo and a bloated juan manuel marquez at catchweights and he even went over 2 lbs in weight against marquez (like he needed it) mayweather is a good fighter i dont take that away from him, but the best ever? please.. i dont see the REAL GREAT fighters like ali, tyson, foreman, jones, marciano etc giving excuses on why they dont want to fight the next best guy. mayweathers career and marketability revolves around that number “0” and once that is gone his marketability takes a nose dive.

      can you imagine what the super bowl would be like if the seattle seahawks didnt want to play the denver broncos because the seahawks owner doesnt like john elway? no because its #1 vs #2 (regardless of what their regular season record is) championships mean #1 and #2 battle it out.. not the so called lb for lb #1 vs #12 robert guerrero or #18 victor ortiz.

  • Pacfan12345

    Some people dont realize that the mayweather/canelo fight did so well on ppv is because canelo was arguably Mexico’s biggest and best fighter and that Mexican’s buy pay per view when a top Mexican fighter is fighting, especially during big Mexican holidays such as cinco de mayo or mexican independence day in September. Having said that, their fight was on september 14th which was mexican independence day weekend. No way in hell mayweather brings in 2.2 million buys on his own. you can make a case that 1 million buys were for mayweather and 1.2 were for canelo. and it was supposed to be mayweathers “toughest” bout since de la hoya. If you include his upcoming fight with maidana, mayweathers last 7 fights were in the months of May and September only. his last non May or September fight was hatton back in 2007. so no $hit this guy gets a lot of buys, he strategically picks the months he wants to fight in too! i cant hate on it because its smart financially. gotta give him credit for that even though he is a cherry picker on his opponents.

    • DollarsnSense

      And Canelo’s PPV against Alfredo Angulo, another popular Mexican fighter drew 350K PPV buys. While that was considered a success for him, it was nowhere near the 2.2 million buys his bout drew which blows your weak argument completely out of the water.

      • Pacfan12345

        no $hit.. that fight wasnt supposed to be a PPV in the first place. has angulo ever been on ppv? people were already criticizing golden boy for putting it on PPV in the first place. also was the fight held on either cinco de mayo weekend or mexican independence day? no, it was on March 8th. re-read my previous comment about the correlation between mexicans buying ppv when a big mexican fighter is fighting ON A BIG MEXICAN HOLIDAY and then get your weak mind out the gutter and show me you have some comprehension

        • DollarsnSense

          So Cinco de Mayo or Mexican Independence Day is responsible for 2 million PPVs? Yeah, you’re a real bright one…. #notreally

          Come with some FACTS or STFU.

          • Pacfan12345

            yeah they are numbnut.. what weekends were the 2 biggest boxing PPV buys in history on? oh let me answer for you. De La Hoya Mayweather did 2.4 million buys on May 5 (cinco de mayo) 2007 and mayweather canelo on September 14 (Mexican Independence Day weekend) 2013. I would like to see you disprove these FACTS with your pea brain knowledge. You might want to call Amazon and tell them you want to return the Hooked on Phonics tapes that your mom bought you for Christmas because you clearly cannot read or comprehend anything i am ever saying.

          • Pacfan12345

            hey numbnut.. heres a link for you from accredited ESPN. go ahead and tell them they are wrong. you probably cant read this article because you can barely spell your own name so ill pull a quote from the article that even a pre school reading level mofo like you can understand.

            “Leonard Ellerbe, one of Mayweather’s close advisers, told ESPN.com on Wednesday that Mayweather plans to fight twice in 2013, both on the Mexican holiday weekends that typically are target dates for major fights.”

            http://espn.go.com/boxing/story/_/id/8718291/floyd-mayweather-jr-eyes-two-fights-2013-says-adviser-leonard-ellerbe

          • DollarsnSense

            Stop hating on the guy for being an elite boxer and a smart businessman. I mean, what’s the common denominator there? Sorry if that’s too many syllables for you to understand, idiot. But the answer is Floyd Mayweather. Spin it any which way you like, but the FACT remains that the two biggest PPVs in boxing history were headlined by Mayweather. You stupid Pactards will say anything to TRY and deny the man his props. Since he isn’t fighting a Mexican this time, what will the excuse be when this PPV does good numbers? Actually don’t hurt yourself trying to think. Just go find a corner to cry in because your hero manny will always be the second fiddle in this discussion.

          • Pacfan12345

            man nothing gets through to your head. did i ever dispute that mayweather wasnt a top draw? was that my argument in my initial comment? my point was that mayweather fights on BIG MEXICAN HOLIDAYS WHICH GIVES HIS PPV SALES A BOOST!! HIS LAST NON MEXICAN HOLIDAY FIGHT WAS WITH HATTON IN DECEMBER OF 07 AND THAT ONLY DID 800k BUYS pretty small for mayweather standards right? so no moron, you are making it a case of pacquiao vs mayweather, not once did i mention pacquiaos name in my initial comment. man you seriously need to go back to school or something because you just cant get your tongue off mayweathers nutsack. you wanted FACTS or STFU right? well i brought FACTS and you still are ignorant. get out of here. you really need to learn how to read and comprehend so you can finally read the application for Welfare and you can leeching off the taxpayers like God intended you to.

          • DollarsnSense

            Ok clown, you tried to suggest that 1.2 million buyers of Mayweather’ s last PPV were because of Canelo. However, the FACT of the matter is that even fighting against another popular Mexican, he couldn’t even do HALF of that number regardless of the month continues to disprove you so in typical Pactard fashion you come up with some half cocked theory.

            Let’s look at it a different way. Oscar DE LA hoya, a Mexican, couldn’t even Crack ONE million buys against Ricardo Mayorga on Cinco DE mayo weekend. But the next year against Mayweather they do 2.4 million buys. Please explain. Oscar also couldn’t break one million buys fighting on Mexican independence day weekends against Hector comacho, Fernando vargas, and Mosley II. Please explain. Sergio martinez-chavez jr. Didn’t even do HALF a million on Mexican independence day weekend 2012. Please explain. i mean, going by your bird-brained theory all you need is a Mexican and a PPV on some Mexican holiday and you’re guaranteed huge numbers, right? /s And just for giggles, pacquiao-Hatton didn’t even do 900k buys on a cinco DE mayo weekend 2009.

          • Pacfan12345

            okay nutjob again you dont read.. i said you can make an ARGUMENT that canelo brought 1.2 and mayweather 1.0. it could be vice versa for all i know. do you want to survey all 2.2 million buys and see who they bought it for? MY INITIAL POINT is that 2 of mayweathers BIGGEST PPV events were against POPULAR BIG MEXICAN FIGHTERS ON MEXICAN HOLIDAYS. why dont you ask your boy mayweather why he doesnt he fight in other months besides May or September? yeah because he knows he can take advantage of those holidays and bring in the big bucks. you are attacking mayweathers OWN strategy of fighting only on Mexican Holidays with your dumb@ss rants about other fighters who fought on the same days that dont pull as much numbers.

            what your idiot self fails to do is disprove my theory about MAYWEATHERS TOP 2 PPV EVENTS and that it has a lot to do with him fighting a BIG NAME POPULAR MEXICAN FIGHTER on A MEXICAN HOLIDAY. you start going off with de la hoya and vargas and martinez and chavez jr. what do they have to do with my theory that MAYWEATHERS TOP PPV BUYS WERE IN CORRELATION WITH BIG NAME MEXICAN FIGHTERS THAT FIGHT ON A BIG MEXICAN HOLIDAY? my initial point again, you dingbat (the f*ck is a dingbat anyway?) is that mayweather cannot draw 2.2 or 2.4 buys on his own. he had a lot of help from the marketing and popularity of canelo and de la hoya and their respective mexican fans.

            chavez jr is nowhere near the popularity of canelo in mexico. go ask your mexican friends who they would rather cheer for if they ever fought together. i bet they say canelo. even casual boxing fans know the name canelo, not chavez jr so much. de la hoya was already a premium PPV name and he fought ricardo mayorga (a moron like you that was never an elite fighter to begin with) and he still did close to 1 mil on his own.

            please disprove my original theory about mayweathers top 2 ppv numbers having help from big name mexican fighters on a mexican holiday.

            i swear you are so up ur @ss with mayweather that he can rape your mom and you will still think he is God.

          • DollarsnSense

            i said you can make an ARGUMENT that canelo brought 1.2 and mayweather 1.0. it could be vice versa for all i know. do you want to survey all 2.2 million buys and see who they bought it for?

            Nope, you’re the one making the claim so you do the survey. The simple fact of the matter is that you don’t know yet you still keep talking crap as though you do. Words cannot even begin to express how dumb you are.

            you start going off with de la hoya and vargas and martinez and chavez jr. what do they have to do with my theory that MAYWEATHERS TOP PPV BUYS WERE IN CORRELATION WITH BIG NAME MEXICAN FIGHTERS THAT FIGHT ON A BIG MEXICAN HOLIDAY? my initial point again, you dingbat (the f*ck is a dingbat anyway?) is that mayweather cannot draw 2.2 or 2.4 buys on his own. he had a lot of help from the marketing and popularity of canelo and de la hoya and their respective mexican fans.

            The point would be obvious if you had more than two brain cells. You claim that Mayweather’s record breaking numbers are due to fighting Mexican fighters on Mexican holidays. I showed you BIG NAME Mexican fighters fighting on BIG Mexican holidays that couldn’t pull anywhere near the record breaking numbers that Mayweather has. Why couldn’t they do the numbers that Mayweather has done if having a Mexican fighter fight on a Mexican holiday is the key to success??? You can’t answer that so please stop talking $h!t that you can’t substantiate yet try to pass it off as factual. It’s not.

            chavez jr is nowhere near the popularity of canelo in mexico.

            Prove it. Quantify it.

            i swear you are so up ur @ss with mayweather that he can rape your mom and you will still think he is God.

            Says the dunce who feels the need to announce to the world that you’re a pacquiao fangirl. Tell you what, before you reply with some more of your nonsense,try removing Manny’s penis from your mouth first so that perhaps you can make an ounce of sense. #kthanxbye

          • Pacfan12345

            Yeah man. . Trying to talk to you is like explaining calculus to a 3 year old. Whatever floats your boat little man I know what my argument entails. Go ahead and think you won this “discussion” you much like every other floyd worshipper think the same. Yeah im a fan of pacquiao but never did I use him to get my point thru.. just stating facts.. but of course you are so blinded by floyds dick in your eye that anything he does or says is law. Good luck in life buddy because you wont really amount to nothing. Go ahead and reply to this post maybe ill read it maybe I wont. But instead of wasting time trying to get a point across to a floyd sperm drinker like you im gonna go ahead and close this transaction ive been working on for the past 3 weeks that nets me almost 16k in net commission. Dont worry man you will make that in a year. Happy hunting bro! :D

          • DollarsnSense

            Lmao!!! There it is. The tell tale sign of some ignoramus on the Internet conceding that they truly never had a clue of what they were TRYING to talk about; the bald face LIE about how much money they make lol! Thank you for showing how much of a pathetic loser you really are. Priceless! Don’t worry kid, you may not reply, but I know you’ll read this. Thus, I’ll leave you with this little truism for you to dwell on as you pleasure yourself to the latest from the pacquiao poster of the month club…It’s too bad that you won’t understand it since you have the mental capacity of an amoeba, but remember: correlation does not necessarily equal causation. Lesson is over, bottom feeder. Get back to flipping those burgers!

          • Pacfan12345

            not really dude, reading your posts just made me realize how smart i actually am as compared to you. you worship a fool that destroys boxing by ducking opponents not only pacquiao but other fighters that were in their prime and the top. again, you would still worship floyd if he raped your mom or grandmother. this guy steals money from you indirectly because he does not give 2 $hits about what you want to see, he only cares about what he wants to do and you will pay 60 bucks a fight to watch him fight a wall if need be. and yes dude i do make money and i don’t need to prove it to a keyboard wannabe with no logic and no comprehension. because you are just gonna say something on the lines of “lmao ignoramus floods penis tastes good” and i don’t have much time to deal with a guy who makes himself feel better by going “on online forums and arguing about why floyd is the master of the universe and i will pay 60 bucks to watch him jack off in a cup” you bring up irrelevant information in your arguments and bring up subjects that i never talked about in my original post. you bring up pacquiao which i never brought up in my original argument. then you bring up other fighters that has nothing to do with my original statements that discusses a theory of correlation between floyd and him fighting exclusively on mexican holidays against big mexican fighters.. here man, ill reply to your responses with responses of my own

            “Nope, you’re the one making the claim so you do the survey. The simple fact of the matter is that you don’t know yet you still keep talking crap as though you do. Words cannot even begin to express how dumb you are.”

            WHY HAS MAYWEATHERS LAST 7 FIGHTS BEEN DURING THE WEEKENDS OF CINCO DE MAYO OR MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY?

            The point would be obvious if you had more than two brain cells. You claim that Mayweather’s record breaking numbers are due to fighting Mexican fighters on Mexican holidays.

            I thought you were done, doofus. Lol, it’s so easy to manipulate a moron like you. For real dude, you don’t make serious money. You’re just another Internet jockey that has been made to look like a fool and that’s the only retort they you can come up with to make yourself feel like you’re a human being. it’s old, it’s transparent and is tacky. The only transaction you’re closing is with that fryer that you operate. you’re right though, you don’t have to prove anything to me because I didn’t ask you a damn thing about how much you bring home from your minimum
            wage gig at the burger Shack.

            If it’s all about Mexicans and Mexican holidays, THEN WHY HAS NOBODY ELSE BEEN ABLE TO RECORD THE NUMBER OF PPV BUYS THAT MAYWEATHER HAS ON THOSE SAME DAYS? oh look at that, my caps lock key works too, dingbat.

            Just go and pick your moms up from the $2 whore house and go home and play with your pacquiaoaction figures, nitwit.

          • Pacfan12345

            yeah i was done nutsack but coming across this again proved to me that the HIV you contracted from mayweather hasnt killed you yet. and think what you want, i could be making 15k a year and i would still be making more money than you since you probably dont qualify for welfare anymore because you can only be on welfare for 3 years. just reading your logic lets me know that you couldnt qualify to even pick up the trash in front of my house every week.

            why would a boxing promoter want to hold a ppv on the same weekend as mayweather? those 2 days have been requested my mayweather for the past 7 years so no $hit mayweather doesnt get much competition on those days. i didnt question mayweathers ability to get a lot of buys dumb@ss i questioned his ability to get 2.2 and 2.4 million buys ON HIS OWN. IS IT A SURPRISE THAT THE 2 BIGGEST PPV BUYS IN HISTORY WERE MAYWEATHER VS A BIG NAME MEXICAN FIGHTER ON A MEXICAN HOLIDAY? wipe your eyes so that mayweathers sperm stops blocking your cornea. the only thing you counter with is “get your pac dolls and pac nuthugging and pac this and pac that” what the hell does pacquiao have to do with my arguments? hey once you are done sucking mayweather off come suck my shaft next, be careful though its not as pretty as mayweathers 60 million dollar dick you love so much but its sure long enough to make you and your mom choke and gag on it like a good dog. hey you can even put some tapatio on it so that it masks the taste of my sperm hitting the back of your throat. LOL =DDD

          • DollarsnSense

            Thanks for proving that you obviously know a lot more about the welfare system than I ever will, dummy. BTW, what you live in isn’t called a house, it’s an outhouse. Big difference there, toilet bug.

            Wait, you mean to say that Cinco de Mayo and Mexican Independence Day only started seven years ago??? Wow, who knew?! It’s amazing that nobody else before then could stumble onto this ‘magic’ formula. It’s funny how one of those BIG NAME MEXICAN FIGHTERS EVEN FIGHTING ON MEXICAN HOLIDAYS COULDN”T GENERATE CLOSE TO THOSE KINDS OF NUMBERS UNTIL MAYWEATHER WAS THE OPPONENT. So Mayweather can’t generate those kinds of numbers “on his own”. You truly are one load your mommy should’ve swallowed. Since when is any boxer on PPV in a boxing ring on his own, idiot?? While I’m sure that you would try to pay all of your food stamp allotment to see Pacquiao shadow box on PPV, the rest of the sane world expects to see two boxers in a ring for a PPV.

            Seriously, it’s gets old for me trying to have a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent such as yourself. Just go home already, you’re drunk.

  • EdL

    You hit the nail right on its head Nate. The Greatest Ducker of All Time Fraud Gayweather Jr. will never have the balls to fight the Pacman just like he didn’t have the balls to fight Margarito, Cotto, Paul Williams and 5-6 other fighters in their primes before. He even ducked the Dela Hoya rematch. He did all of these by his so-called”retirement”. The Duck’s so funny when he lies to make an excuse. One excuse that has stuck to my mind is his excuse for not fighting Cotto before Margarito and Pacquiao knocked him (Cotto) out. He said “Cotto lives in Puerto Rico so we cannot fight” LOL. So to all boxing fans, we should really stop financing the Duck’s highway robberies called fights. FLOYCOTT!!!FLOYDCOTT!!!FLOYDCOTT!!!

  • Noe Madera

    Let’s face it, Pacquiao never had a chance against May not even with the steroids. Now that he obviously stopped using them he has less of a chance. Mayweather called him directly and offered him $50 million dollars and he declined, he declined random drug testing the first time around and he declined a 50-50 split. Now he is broke, he owes taxes to both countries, he is making $12 million a fight ($50 was too little) and he can knock out a glass-jawed Bradley. Mayweather has always been in the driver’s seat and will continue to do so. There are many lucrative fights for him and he does not have to help Pacquiao pay his bills. Did I mention that May is the richest athlete ever? Another thing worth mentioning is that a big roadblock to the fight was Arum and he continues to be. Did you know that the winner of the Alvarado-Marquez fight will fight Pacquiao next according to Arum? So, yeah let’s not pay to see Mayweather fight a true Champion in Maidana that took the “0” from Broner’s record and let’s pay to see Marquez-Pacquiao 5…WHAT?
    One last thing…Mayweather is fighting Champs in 3 divisions. He goes up in weight to fight Junior Middleweights, he fights in his natural welterweight weight and he is willing to go down to 140 lbs to fight Champs and keep collecting belts.

      Both Floyd and Manny are great fighters. For us to be able to tell who is the better fighter, we should see them fight. All boxing fans deserve to witness the best fights since they spend a lot. I am a fan of Floyd but I can’t see the logic of not fighting PACMAN. Both of them have made boxing interesting to watch and Floy vs. Manny is the fight I am waiting for… and see who is who…

      • Noe Madera

        Well said Vic. I agree.

    Floyd Maywather Junior will go down in boxing history as a great, the best boxer of his time who never fought the best of the best of his time. Intiende?

  • Dean Roberts

    I totally agree with the article. Mayweather is a brilliant businessman, he has a fantastic boxing record thanks to him hand picking all of his opponents. Mayweather admitted on a video that is all over the web that he didn’t want to fight Manny. That doesn’t sound like a great fighter to me. Mayweather is nothing more than an exhibition fighter, choosing to fight opponent who cause him no danger and avoiding anyone with an ounce of speed. I agree with Bernard Hopkins when he said Mayweather is a phony and I agree with Mike Tyson, when he said Manny would destroy Floyd. Mayweather has an army of fans who thinks the sun shines out of his butt…He may have fooled them but the rest of us are now starting to see the true Mayweather. A fight ducking businessman..

    You are an idiot who obviously has no knowledge of the sport of Boxing and you are what we like to call in the inner circles as a “Pactard”. Let me take a guess; you are Filipino? Stop wasting other people’s time with a catchy title and a piece of crap article based on your personal feelings. We the fans, will pay as much as a $100 fight to watch the best fighter to ever live step in a ring dismantle offenses and game plans while your obvious favorite keeps looking mediocre in front of mediocre opponents. Sine the steroids topic came up in 2006 and Ariza left Pacquiao’s camp he has not been the same. In the meantime May has Danny Garcia, the winner of Cotto-Martinez and even Triple GGG as potential opponents that will make for good fights.

      • vibez

        Your boy decline the fight freddie roach himself said it, bob arum called the fight off numerous times idiot. Team pac was open to fight Marquez on may 5th in 2012 but not mayweather. Thats not a duck? Dumb pactards

    • EdL

      You are the one who should be called a moronic Floydiot. Why can’t you make your idol fight a “midget, one-dimensional” fighter? Up to now you still can’t see through the Duck’s lies and excuses for avoiding Pacquiao which shows your sever lack of intelligence. Only morons cannot see through the Duck’s excuses.

      • Noe Madera

        So….are you watching the fight? In the words of Floyd himself, “You pay to see me win or you pay to see me lose, either way you are paying motherfu**er!”

        • pitzlor

          LOOSER!!

        • pitzlor
