Why is Floyd getting so much heat over this? He doesnt owe anyone this fight.

He is a businessman and businessmen weigh risks. Why would you fight a hard fight against a guy you think can beat you when there are 4 other fighters that you would easily beat to retire undefeated?

He is affraid because he thinks that Pac will hurt him. He justifies it by saying the Pac can hurt him because he is on steroids. But that doesn't change the fact that he is afraid.

Was Bo Jackson afraid of Brian Bosworth because he was on steroids???

But Bosworth was afraid of Bo but it wasn't a big deal. Its ok to to fear, everyone acts like they can step to the ring with a prime Tyson.

he is afraid of getting beat by Manny. Something about Manny makes him tentative to fight him. He sees something. Maybe Manny's heart and perseverance.

He doesn't check under the bed or in his closet for Manny, but he certainly doesn't think there's an 100% chance he beats Manny. Unless he's 100% sure he beats someone, he won't fight them. That "0" means more to him than everything else. I'm sure if he had a choice between having his "0" but being flat broke in two decades from now, or being financially set for life but not having the "0", he goes with being broke.

Manny really doesn't pose the same threat he did in 2009/2010 though. The biggest threats left to Floyd are Sergio (who he will never fight) and Canelo (who he might not fight either.)

If he were ever afraid of anything I'd think it was getting beat, even though I fell he'd win soundly. Nevertheless, both of these dudes are just too prideful to ever fight.

2 scenarios from the above vid:

1) Floyd thinks Pac is on roids, Pac is on roids and that's why he's been knocking guys down like Cotto and Mosley, - Floyd is afraid and worried for his health after seeing those.

2) Floyd thinks Pac is on roids, Pac is actually not on roids and his rise in weight is just a product of skill and good S&C - Floyd is afraid and worried for his health after seeing Pac's performances against Cotto and Mosley.


EITHER WAY - He's afraid.
But after a poor performance against JMM and Bradley Floyd is still afraid

He's afraid of losing that zero. He thinks if he loses it he won't be as big as of money maker he is now.

Pac agreed to agree to anything Void wants, ring, venue, judges, will give Void 55%, while Pac will only take 45%. I posted years ago that Void would never fight Pac and that post still holds. Void also refuses and never will fight Martinez. I don't think he will even fight Alvarez...............Void is void..........

He offered the man to fight the first time but guess what...he friggin coudnt do 14 day cutoff...not Floyd's problem...all the while Pac's stock dropped....money became an issue because 50/50 was off the table...

Not placing all the blame on Floyd for this....when all of a sudden your begging for the ORIGINAL GOT DAYUM DEAL!
