Default Floyd explains why he didnt fight Pacquiao

I think I understand where he's coming from now. I've made fun of him in the past, but when you think about it , he's got a point. Boxing is a dangerous sport, people can get killed, we've seen it happen in the past . He's just looking out for his health and his family. Most of us would do the same. Health, family / children is more important then prestige. This is something that boxers / fans should be aware of, or really any athlete in a physical sport, not just boxing... MMA, football, hockey, wrestling, etc. even Basketball (injuries happen such as spranked ankles, broken wrists, concussions from tripping / falling landing on your head, etc). IMO



BORKED

i agree. it takes tremendous amounts of courage to put your health first. it would be so much easier to just do what people want you to do and get in the ring with a beast like manny pac and recieve unprecedented monetary rewards and glory. but very few have the courage to say no to that and instead put your health first. too bad you cant recieve a medal of honor for boxing.

The fact that Mosley, Ortiz, Cotto had no problem with testing got fights made no problem and didn't have one complaint about the testing shows that Manny ****ed up.

He could have been, or could have not. There's no proof either way. But you never know who could be on steroids, anybody could be guilty. It's risky. Although Pac did agree to the tests Floyd still didn't seem to want to fight him. But you cant blame him if there's a less dangerous opponent available and u can still make good money. we'd all do the same thing and it's a better deicsion in the long term

Pac should have just taken the 40 million. Now he gets 3 and a kit kat bar. Deal with it!

"Pac agreed"

In reality refused all the tests in the world in 2009. After he got off the dope, starts getting knocked the **** out and losing.

Hm............................................................................

Anyways. KTFO6

Knocked out by Marquez. Damn!!!!

Manny agreed to the damn tests 2 years later..then said he would take less only to say he wanted 50/50 when floyd called his ass

That video is terrible I'll tell you why

Floyd says Bob Arum asked for 50/50 (like that's a problem?). So right off the bat Floyd is hinting that he's not accepting a 50/50 split (and this was years ago).

2nd, Floyd says Pacquiao told reporters to "talk to his promoter." Floyd does the same thing ("Leonard Ellerbe / Al Haymon conduct my bouts"). And this is disregarding the fact that Pacquiao has called him out endless times.

3rd, Floyd says Arum keeps fights 'in house'. Floyd does the same thing. Look at his record over the past 5+ years and he's fought almost exclusively Golden Boy fighters. He's pretty much a GBP fighter if you look at his record and how he handles his fights.


Try again bro.
