That's why The Ring, Boxing Scene still has Pacquiao at #1 at Welterweight.
Only to try to save a fight that isn't going to draw much. This fight only does 800K PPV buys. The official numbers wont be released like the rest. And Manny yet again is going to look like ****.

Pacquiao is embarrassing me to be a boxing fan. Now all the casual fans are going to see this *****ass nicca over hear suing his opponents because they hurt his feelings.

When Rachman called Lewis a ***, Lewis fought him in the lead up to the fight and knocked him out during the fight

This.

Floyd said Mosley was on steroids during 24/7. What did Mosley do? Tried to knock his head off.

Ali called Frazier all sorts of ****. Did Frazier sue?

Leonard said Hearns had to have been on steroids. Hearns agreed to stronger testing instead of suing.

Yes a huge robbery.

If you don't think Pacquiao won that fight, you don't know boxing.

Pacquiao won very comfortably too.

It is funny how some people can suggest this fight is similar to the Marquez fight.

As for the apology another pointless gesture as floyd in several interviews has already said he didn't say pac was on PEDS and that pac is a great fighter, whilst also suggesting in other interviews pac is on PEDS and is a cheat.

So no need to get excited about this gesture it's a very empty one at best.
Unfortunately a gesture like this one is never "empty" per say. Even if it was "FORCED".....the fact is the OTHER option of NOT agreeing to the settlement and disregard the "TERMS" would be far less appealing for Floyd and his clan.

So even if he didn't mean it....it really doesn't matter because he's admitting wrong to the world. After all the accusations and allegations he never backed up coming forward and "making right" in the eye of the public is really all that matters. That's not an easy thing to do and a tough pill to swallow. There are always consequences for men when making mistakes. Even if it's just by spreading a "white lie" about another man.

Live and learn.

Are you telling me it was not a close fight?
It was a close fight. Many bundits said Mayweather won the first fight with Castillo, but that doesn't make it true. It's better to watch the fight for yourself. I watched the Castillo fight countless times and I can't give Mayweather more than 5 rounds. Just like I can't give Pacquiao more than 5 rounds in the Marquez fight.

If you can then fair enough. I'd like to know which rounds you have him winning. But my point is, just because a pundit says something doesn't mean that they are incapable of being biased.

Defamation of character?

Floyd broke the law.

And when you make mistakes you have to pay.


How I start spreading rumours about you, that you like touching little boys, and go round saying that I know you do, say this on national TV and get other people believing it too.

Even though I just made it up and have zero evidence, wouldn't you feel a little aggrieved?

And if it affected your income, how people viewed you, people will ask you about it and doubt you.

Would you use the law of the land to put things right?

Mosley had rehab'd his image, and Mosley is man enough to fight instead of sue like a girl

Hence why I am saying mayweather promotions now making that generic statement to say they never said that or believe that is just an empty gesture as it is a position that floyd himself has stated in the past, whether he believes it to be true or not.

Article dated june 2011, ESPN interview. Floyd mayweather quote.

"I've never said that Manny Pacquiao was taking steroids, I never said he was taking enhancement drugs," said Mayweather, who failed to turn up for a court-ordered deposition in Las Vegas earlier this month involving the defamation suit.

"I want to fight the best they got out there, not just him, the best they got out there," Mayweather said, "and if he's on the list as one of the best guys, then absolutely."

So what exactly is this new statement showing that floyd himself hasn't said in the past
The problem with Floyd is that he made SO MANY comments about PAC over the years and they've all been all over the place that there's so much to choose from when ****yzing what he really believes.

He's out right said PAC was on roids....but used another term "power pellets"...he's pointed towards PAC using HGH...due to the size of his head....Of course when things go hot he tried to say otherwise...that he never really said PAC was on something illegal but only a re**** couldn't read what Floyd was trying to imply.

What the statement says that was never said in public by Floyd was that he doesn't believe nor wants to imply that PAC is doping.....which contradicts his previous stance.

I give Floyd credit for coming out publically and making this statement. Being a man isn't easy and sometimes when you make mistakes the consequences can hurt ones pride and ego. We all know Floyd has an inflated one so imagine how hard it was for him to have to do this.

My point is the Marquez fight and the Bradley fight are chalk and chesse.

And for the record, I scored the fight for Marquez, 115-113, but it was a very close fight with the rounds being closely contested.

Bradley vs Pacquiao I had 118-110 Pacquiao, with Pacquiao winning a lot of the rounds comfortably, Bradley on taking 1 certain round.
