The fight that could bost boxing back into the big-time is meant to finally happen.
Floyd Mayweather sr. has claimed that the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight will definitely happen and happen very soon. About time!
The undefeated, best pound-for-pound fighter's Father gave an interview to fighthype.com and did not hesitate to say, "I'm pretty sure he's going to get Pacquiao."
Mayweather has only two fights left on his Showtime contract and there is no question that if they were both with Pacquiao that the fight would be worth over a hundred million dollars each.
The talk on this fight has left many fans (such as myself) frustrated. If this had happened years ago we would have seen one of the best fights of all time. Both have speed and incredible punching ability. However, it is clear to see that now both fighters are not at the top of their games.
The reality remains that this is the biggest fight for Boxing. Everyone wins for it to happen and, as Skip Bayless mentioned on ESPN First Take yesterday, "Floyd has no excuse not to fight Manny."
I never bought the idea that Mayweather was scared of Pacquiao but this is a great test. He said he wants Manny, everyone says he will win, so what is the wait Floyd?
