Mayweather doesn't fight fighters in their prime.

mayweather obviously is scared that his undefeated status will be gone.  otherwise, he wouldn't demand the majority of the money like he is.  he's a bum.

Keep buying Floyd's lip service.

Pac Man has said on numerous occasions he refused to take a blood test right before the fight (like Floyd wanted) but would take a blood test immediately following the fight.

Pac wont take random BLOODTEST! If you think Mayweather is AFRAID your a moron. If you think Freddie Roach is an angel because he has parkinsons your even dumber!! Mayweather ACTS like an idiot and will certainly go broke but is a terrific boxer.

Pac is seen as God in the Phillipines...if he faces Floyd and loses (which is about 80% possible, especially after his "win" against JMM last year) he will not be God anymore. He is the most popular person and is going to be the President most likely just based off that.

Anybody saying money is BS, Floyd offered Manny $40 mil guaranteed. Bob Arum that scumbag is trying to convince Manny not to fight unless he gets a 50/50 split, even though its clear Floyd is the main draw. Pac may have a whole country of supporters, but they aren't paying $100 per household to watch on PPV or going to the MGM and paying 10g's a seat.

The same can be said about Floyd if he loses. Then there's goes his undefeated record. Which is the ONLY reason he's so popular to begin with. You think people would pay to see this racist thug if he was 43-1 or 42-2?


BTW: Peterson just got caught juicing today. So either Manny has the best, most undetected roids that money can buy or he was never juicing to begin with.

precisely AND he demands that he receives more of a cut of the purse than the other fighter, which makes sense most of the time, but NOT with Pacman who is a bigger star and draw then him. He wanted a 70/30 split of the purse and the ENTIRE PPV proceeds too...

What a loser.

That's incorrect....... Pacman LONG AGO, agreed to random blood testing..YES, Fraud Fakeweather is AFRAID to lose to pacman..especially an asian fighter..

http://www.boxingasylum.com/main/?p=2232

According to Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, his Superstar fighter and Pound For Pound King Manny Pacquiao has agreed to full random Blood testing for a potential fight with long time rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mr. Arum has been reported as saying - ‘We have agreed in the Pacquiao camp to unlimited random testing done by a responsible, neutral organization. We don’t believe USADA is a neutral organization.

‘I don’t think anybody’s test is as vigorous as the test administered by the Olympic Organization. And we can arrange for the Olympic Organization to handle the test under the supervision of the Athletic commission respective of the state where the fight is going to be held.

Bob Arum was Mayweathers promoter back in the day and Mayweather thinks he got fucked by Arum. Mayweather knows that Arum is friggin Paquiao and it pisses him off. I think the chances of them fighting are slim unless Paquiao separates from Arum.

Jones -4000 is more like it. Neither would stand a chance....

 Pac is a bigger draw.  You are 100% wrong and are disqualified from talking about this subject anymore.  There is some good back and forth on this thread but this is blatant stupidity.

I say Mayweather kicks his friggin behind.

Two things are holding up this fight.

Manny wants more Money and won't do the drug test.

I see what your saying, but I think Floyd is more about money. He'd be getting at least 60 mil for this fight and even if he loses there would definitely be a rematch clause. So basically win and retire or lose and fight once more for a total of like 120mil
