Like I said warriors find a way to make it happen !

And Floyd is the only one with egg on his face ,everyone else has no problems fighting Manny except Floyd ,if anyone looks bad its Floyd ..That's why people are getting fed up with his antics ..No one is questioning Manny's resume his isn't the one that will have the question mark .

Floyd is the walking contradiction his name is money but refused on of the biggest money fights ever because of his excuses !
Plenty of people question Pac's legacy and opponents, where have you been? Pac is a walking contradiction wouldn't test for PBF but tests for Rios. He should have remained consistent about his testing policy now he looks like he did indeed have something to hide.
PBF's star has risen since this fight was close to being made he's on top of the sport by far while Pac's star has diminished 350K in buys against Rios and trouble selling this Bradley fight. He couldn't dream about getting a 50/50 split like he did back in 2009. He would be lucky to get 60/40.

I don't care much for Mayweather's choice of opponents and I tend to agree that he never faced an atg in his prime, but if I was in that brutal business I'd do the same. If you can make millions fighting guys that don't stand a chance against you, why would you do anything else. Public keeps lining up to pay so what the heck! Probably the best managed fighter of all time. Complain about him in the only way that makes sense.... boycott his fights.

Pacquiao will end up taking the majority of the blame for the fight not happening when people look back on this in the future.

  • The fan boys will have moved on or grown up
  • Anyone using words like **********, Duckweather, *****, Pac**** etc etc will have reached ****rty and realise how pathetic they were.
  • Random drug testing will (hopefully) be more prevalent
  • Fans will hopefully not be as tribal about these 2 fighters after they've both retired and be able to judge on the facts not blind hate / love.
Anyone who refuses / tries to negotiate down on drug testing should be automatically viewed as being suspicious to anyone capable of any sort of critical thinking.


The 2009 offer with 50/50 and the 14 day cut off which Pacquiao walked away from will look so so bad for him from a historical / legacy point of view. It really is indefensible.

Default Re: Freddie Roach: Mayweather doesn't have the ***** to get knocked out

He is right about Mayweather, but why take that risk?

If you can win without taking that risk and still make a lot of money, there isn't any incentive to try and knock someone out.

It's just not worth it.

past Cotto, Gatti, past Mosley, past ODLH and Castillo.

Anyway if PBF would've fought a 2009/2010 Pacquiao, that would've been his first fight against a truly ATG fighter in his prime.

would have loved to see the vegas odds on that one, no doubt that mayweather would have been a gigantic favorite, only to be humbled by the pacman.

pac by beatdown.

too much speed, power, stamina from southpaw stance.

boring decision or ko/tko if pedr decides to fight fire with fire.

style makes fights and pac is the wrong style for pedjr.

None of them are all time greats. His best win was Marquez - good but not great.
Mannys competiton is the same
