    In the post fight interview with Pacquiao when Jim Gray asked Floyd if he would accept Pacquiao's challenge and Floyd just sat there giving no reaction with the camera on him, it was a weird moment wasn't it. What must this be like for Floyd to attend that fight but to not want to say he's fighting the winner. I think it highlights an internal conflict within Floyd.

    Floyd never answers to anyone. He only talks if he wants.

    Probably inside he was laughing “I’m 42 but I’m still the biggest draw in this game, they are desperate to see me fight again.”

    I honestly have no idea why either, he hasn't been entertaining in years, arguably since he hit the big time!

    Floyd was going to accept the fight but once he saw Pac's stellar performance against Floyd 2.0 he was shook.

    I think Floyd was there in case Broner won. He knows Broner in and out of the ring and figured it would be a fairly easy payday.


    Mayweather doesn’t want a 100% healthy Pacquiao ESPECIALLY a Pacquiao that he saw Saturday night. That’s why the ***** didn’t answer. He’d rather stick to 125lb Japanese novices and 0-0-0 MMA guys.

    Floyd was disappointed that Pacquiao didn't look spectacular. That performance done nothing to help sell the uninspiring rematch.

    He seemed salty. Everyone was cheering Pacquiao and he didn't want to make Pac's winning occasion bigger

    Floyd was alone. He's not tough when he's alone. In Tokyo, he stood 10 feet away with his Yes Men barking at Pacquiao for a rematch. At the Clippers game, he wasn't so tough either. They actually ran into reach other at the Lakers game last night and Tough Floyd was nowhere to be found.

    Internal conflict? I am pretty sure where the soul lives, there is just a void space inside Mr. Money.

    He didn't answer because if it's being considered he isn't showing his hand.
