1. I don't think Floyd's body can handle a 6 months turnaround from a training camp for Mosley to a training camp for Pacquiao. It's probably too much for him to handle right now.

2. Floyd's trainer is having court issues.

3. Floyd believes he deserves a bigger split of the PPV revenue.

I think those are the main reasons the fight is not happening in november. I don't think he's scared but obviously he knows that if he takes Pac at less than 100% he is ****ed

It is not a duck in no way shape or form. Floyd wants testing Pac doesn't want to give it to him that is the hang up. One side will have to give in before the fight is made.

5 out of 6 (83%) people on this board (the die hard fans) think Mayweather ducked Pacman. And like you said, we have to assume that pretty much every Mayweather fan is going to vote "no". So what the poll tells me is that pretty much every logical fan out there thinks Mayweather ducked Pacman. Not looking good for Mayweather's public image. He can't fool the die hard fans. We know Pacman agreed to the testing he wanted.

Duck, duck, duck........

Default What If Pacquiao Made References To Kool Aid / Fried Chicken?

What if Pacquiao were to say:

... ... ...

I'm gonna defeat that black chump and then make him bring me a cold glass of Kool Aid. Then I'm gonna make him slice me up some watermelon before he cooks me up some fried chicken!

... ... ....

Would it be considered racist? I don't think Floyd fans would be pardoning the statements as ignorant...

Yeah, Sure if someone called me a potato eater, I'd cry racist. lol

GTFOH. what next, Any shop that sells Potato's is esentially being racist.

IMO its impossible to be racist by calling someone a 'potato/rice/chicken/banana eater'

Food is a universal thing. I wouldn't like to think i was being racist by saying 'that burger eating mob from across the pond'
