I suppose this where we find out if Pac is clean.

If he is, then the Mayweather fight is perfect for him. Biggest payday of his career, silence all the people who doubt his sporting integrity, and the opportunity to prove himself as number 1.

I'm inclined to believe he's clean, but of course there'll be a bit if doubt until this fight is made.

Fingers crossed...

Im only interested in him fighting Pacquiao..it must happen.

I think Pac has the tools to beat him and I think dam near the whole world would pay to see it.

I can appreciate Floyds skills but cannot stand him as a person. I have liked arrogant fighters of the past but Floyd comes across as a thick, disrespectful, deluded and humourless cunt.

It might be time for another forum hiatus. Not sure I can handle two months of amateur experts talking about drug tests, needles and contracts. Again.

What got me last time out was that I was debating with guys that claimed Olympic standard drug testing was essential and long overdue at top level if boxing was to be taken seriously, not for the Mayweather-Pac but right across the sport.

Fair enough you might think? Until you forum search their usernames for "PEDs", "drugs", "steroids" and get zero ****ing hits until the very week that Mayweather started banging on about it.

For them it went from a total non-issue to the biggest crisis facing the sport in the space of 24 hours.

For me it has to be Pac Man...If they aint signed this fight by August/September he should tell Pac Man to poke it and either retire or move up...

Pac Man has had lots of opportunities to make this fight happen, its down to him now. PBF wants it...

Make it happen...

Amazingly myopic eh? Don't get me wrong, we all wanted to see the big fight, but the way people blew it up over one fight was ridiculous.

Both guys are renowned for being petty negotiators, crying over a % here and a % there, and other meaningless bollocks..... though there hasn't been much talk of who Pac will fight since the sparring session with Clottey.

So - who will Mayweather face next?

Reports on other websites suggest Sergio Martinez as a possible opponent, probably at 154..... obviously Williams will be in the mix as well should he beat Cintron.

There's no Matthew Hatton option.

Manny Pacquiao is the obvious one, and one that needs to happen really. Floyd seems to want it so the balls in Manny's court at the moment.

Having said that, I never thought of a fight with Martinez and I really quite like it. It would probably be at 154 but it would be something if Floyd fought him up at 160.

I'd actually like to see him fight Cotto at 154 assuming Cotto beats Foreman.

FMJ looked pretty shit aganst DLH at that weight, and imagine Cotto would be even more of a challenge.

Of course my preference is for FMJ to fight Pac, but we'll see...

I would like to see the Pac Man fight above all, but Cotto at 154...that would be an interesting fight, I guess they would both hit the ring at about 161-163 on fight night...

Martinez and Williams at Light-Middle are options, but the only one that matters right now is Pacquiao.
