Fight is and always has been a mismatch. Pacquiao would have nothing more than a puncher's chance. The idea that he would manhandle Mayweather is not based on reality, just Pactard/Floyd-hater fairy tales and dreams.
This is pretty much it! Arum never, ever was gonna let that fight happened until he thought that he could not milk manny career anymore. Unfortunately, for him he miscalculated the threat JMM posed and lost out at the final big payday. I love Manny but I have said it hundreds of times in the past; his foot work is shit and a master boxer will be able to time his movements." JMM was doing that for the most part in the first 3 fights and finished the deal this time. I feel bad for manny, he should have got away from arum a long time ago

Mayweather is the best h2h but p4p #1 should be Marquez, Mayweather hasnt fought in a long time and no one has a better win than Marquez right now since Wards last fight was agains Dawson out of the SMW division

Floyd should of have fought Pac but instead, he waited for other
to do what he should have done. Is this the way to consider a boxer
pound for pound the best ? even when he avoids the toughest challenges
and expects the best to lose without facing them ? If he wants to be
respected he should fight Martinez instead of expecting other opponent to
defeat him. What is your opinion on this ? Is Floyd a coward or not ?
Mayweather shouldn't be p4p number 1 by Not Fighting. People should become php by fighting and beating great opposition.

Both Marquez and Pacquiao were ranked below Mayweather. Mayweather has a dominate win over Marquez. Marquez knocked out Pacuiao, so now he's above Floyd?

Herp derp.

not really, all he did lately is KOing Ortiz with a sucker punch and going to war with Pacs leftovers. If he wasn't American he wouldn't be even in top 10 anymore.

Do you think Floyd's right hand is nasty as well ... then why would PAC eat that
righ hand all night long? This does not makes any sense, it just took Marquez one
of such shots to put PAC to sleep, and you are saying that Floyd would need
to shot this nasty hand all nite long ????
Would that nasty Floyd's right scary much of PAC?


Do you think maybe also Floyd's would like for his pretty face to
be bleeding as Marquez .... and maybe this is the real reason fight never happened?

Shane Mosley and Ricky Hatton were Mayweather's left overs.

Get over it .

Leftovers, fresh meat, what's the difference- manny just got knocked the **** out. Deal with it.

Don't try and cloud the issue with Floyd's name, just take these licks like a man

What has Floyd done since beating JMM.

Cotto-Pac beat him
Ortiz- is Maidana on your P4P list.
Mosley?

Ward and JMM are in my top 2. Pac and Floyd are about the same.

Which is the point I was establishing. If they both fought each other's leftovers, I think the term 'leftover' should stop being used.
