    Oh, I agree. . It's pretty much all FLoyd for not making the fight the most recent go-round. . But I do think Pac, and especially Arum, are more at fault in the past. .


    But it doesn't really matter, 30 years form now nobody will remember the particulars, intricacies, and nuances, of the infamous "timeline" of failed negotiations, all they will remember is "they didn't fight each other."

    No. Neither guy needs each other.

    I might be inclined to agree, if Floyd hasn't been going on tirades saying HIMSELF "Pac will never get 50/50. . . "

    That is all on Floyd, my brother.

    Floyd already agreed to 50/50 a long time ago. Your hero wanted some ****ing testing cutoff date. Now Pacquiao, who never deserved 50/50 will never get 50/50. Arum never wanted the fight. Everyone knows this except *******s like you.

    So why didn't Floyd agree to 50/50 this time? Ain't nothing changed. . . different day, different side, different hurdle put up. . . Same result. . .


    Only momos like you can't place blame, where blame is due. . .


    Would Arum, and Pac have came up with more roadblocks, hurdles, and excuses if FLoyd did not cease negotiations by refusing 50/50? Very possible. . But WE DO NOT KNOW! Cause Floyd is the one who ceased and desisted the negotiations.

    **** did change ******* when your hero wanted a testing cutoff date.

    Floyd knew the fans demanded the fight which is why he agreed to 50/50 ****.

    Pac and Arum always threw road blocks in the way. Pac agreed to random testing, but wanted a ****ing cutoff date. #Hypocrite like you.

    Floyd needs it more that Pac.

    An undefeated record means nothing if you haven't fought the best in your era.

    And when he agreed, the 50-50 which you admit floyd agreed to, changed. Nallege, you are one of the dumbest ****s on the face of the earth. It's like you operate in your own ****ed up reality. And in your own reality, you're a former world champ remember. :patsch

    I say they need each other equally as much. They're legacies as great fighters are set in stone (on a side/unrelated note, I don't think either is as good or accomplished as their most ardent supporters feel - neither are all-timers at their current weights at all). But if the fight never materializes, they'll have gone their entire careers without facing their greatest contemporary. Despite their impressive lists of wins, that's not good for how fans remember them and it's certainly not good for the sport as a whole.

    When both guys stem to make the most either of them has made in their careers by a landslide because they are fighting each other I don't think any rational mind can say it isn't the very definition of a fight that should be 50/50. Period.

    Pac has fought and beaten prime greats in big fights. Floyd fought Oscar and Shane when they were old.
