Manny must be kicking himself now..had a 50/50 guarantee and 14 day cutoff. Now he is getting no cutoff and is down to a 45 percent guarantee which will soon be 40 and rightfully so.

don't worry, once manny accepted it there were a whole load of new goal posts.

1)Take the test (no he already said he will)
2)Take the Test
3) Has to be this date, and this arena
4) 50/50 is no longer acceptable (Bear in mind 50/50 was acceptable, then Manny did bigger numbers than floyd, and all of a sudden 50/50 is no longer acceptable)
5) Lost 15llbs of Muscle.


What ever manny agrees to, Floyd will add more reasons to not make the fight.

I don't blame him, he can beat Manny leftovers and Hypejobs whilst he earns just as much by taking all the revenue, whilst the whole boxing media suck him off and continue to call him number 1 p4p, so why even bother fighting manny,

Now I'm about to show you guys some quotes and other facts about Pacquiao's career so don't get too offended. I don't want anybody walking around ignorant. You can thank me later

Now I give Pacquiao a lot of props for coming to America and taking on a p4p fighter like Barerra on and Marquez back to back when he was still developing. Not too long afterward, he faces Morales in defeat, but avenges that twice
But there are a few holes in his resume. People like to pick on Floyd for fighters that he didn't face, so it's only fair to do the same with Pac. Here's one fighter that I have a question about.

Joan Guzman
Joan Guzman and Manny have been at Super Featherweight together for a few years. If you look at the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (click that link )you can see in 2006+2007 that the top fighters were Erik Morales, Marquez, Barrera, Pacquiao and Guzman. Pacquiao fought 3 of those guys, but why not Guzman? He fought the other guys a combined 7 times and about to be 8 times, but never Guzman.
Why didn't they fight Guzman after Jorge Solis instead of Barrera(who they already beat convincingly).
I wanted to give Pacquiao a pass for this one until I saw this
“Freddie Roach, out of his own mouth said he would never let Pacquiao fight Joan Guzman when they were both top guys at 130. That came out of his trainer’s mouth, that’s a fact.” - John David Jackson
Sounds fishy if you ask me.

Zahir Raheem
Most people know Morales beat Pacquiao, then lost to Zahir Raheem and then faced Pacquiao in the rematch. I understand Manny still wanting to avenge his loss, but why didn't he fight Raheem after the rematch. I know you can say that Pacquiao would spark Zahir, but I'm sure people though Morales would too.

Nate Campbell and Juan Diaz
I won't get into this one, but Team Pacquiao's decision to fight David Diaz is questionable instead of the higher ranked Campbell and Juan Diaz. They moved up in weight and picked on the lowest rated belt holder.

Shane Mosley

This one is pathetic, just look at the video
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
This was after the Margarito fight and before Floyd and Mora. I guess he's declined enough for them to fight him.

Yuri Foreman
This one baffles me. Here's a quote from Kunt and Bob
"Manny's concerned about Foreman's height. We'll go through the entire (welterweight and junior welterweight) categories and see what we can come up with," - Michael Koncz
"I don't think Manny would fight Yuri Foreman because he says Yuri is too tall" - Bob Arum
They were trying to set this fight up after the first failed Mayweather negotiations before Clottey was brought up. This excuse would fly with me, except for the fact that Yuri is the same height as Oscar and Margarito.

Now I don't blame Manny for most of these things. Most of the blame should go to his team, but like I said, I'm just giving facts and quotes. This is all I'll give you guys for now, hope you enjoyed

You don't build up the most impressive resume of the last 20 years by ducking fighters.
Except Joan Guzman, Mayweather, Zahir Raheem, argubly Nate Campbell, and Shane Mosley(the one Mayweather gets **** for fighting, Manny said he wouldn't go near him unless he fought at 142 and then he went back on that).

Horrible response. Your a troll. Look at the name of the thread your posting in. Can't get anymore troll than that. A bunch of your threads are already in this forum. Shows what your dumbass knows.

Posters who are considered pac**** trolls on this forum should be banned. Peace out troll. Block as you don't have good posts and you respond with incorrect information.

He's famous because you felt the need to comment about him when he did absolutely nothing personal to you.

Reported. It's funny that even the mods think the pac****s are horrible posters so they even put a thread up for posters like this.

Who were all these other fighters that had agreed and done the testing, you are talking about??? As far as I am aware the negotiations you refer were in 2009, and Mayweather had NO ONE tested before 2010 FACT
