Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
 
This is the fight we all want, and wtf, Mayweather might be going to jail?

Who thinks this fight will ever happen?

All Mayweather father and son have shown so far is that you can have money but still be classless ignorant lowlives. If this fight happens at all, hopefully Manny will beat up Floyd he should have remained ******** .......I mean retired.

aceX 09-19-2010 05:43 PM

That Mosley fight was dodgy. Seemed like Mosley could have finished Mayweather early on.

I want to see this match for sure...and hope Manny beats up Floyd..=p

SuperFly 09-19-2010 07:42 PM

I would love to see it, but Mayweather's never going to agree to it. He's so scared of Pac that he's going to prison :lol:

But in all seriousness, Pac is the pound-for-pound best and Mayweather isn't going to prove me wrong.

Mayweather takes it, easily.

aceX 09-20-2010 01:15 AM

Mayweather is managing to dodge the fight as well as he dodges punches in the ring

Hot Sauce 09-20-2010 02:03 AM

Mayweather being afraid of Pac? Comical.

Pactards will never give Floyd any credit. The guy just beat Sugar Shane Mosley, far better than anyone Pac has ever faced.

aceX 09-20-2010 02:18 AM

Hey, all credit to Floyd. He beat Marquez who basically beat Pac twice. I'm not saying that Floyd isn't a great fighter, but I want to see this fight! Pac seems keen to fight, but I haven't seen that same level of enthusiasm from Floyd. Mosley is great, but he's not exactly in his prime. If Floyd goes to jail and never has another fight, everyone will always wonder "what if". Sure on both sides there will be people who would say "Floyd would have won for sure" or "Pac would have won for sure".

But I don't have any respect for fighter who beats a woman.

It became a political statement, one way and the other, and today weíre great friends but if I had to do it over again, because of all the other sprinkling on the pies, I never would have taken part in such a fight. I think Pacquiao had a nice name. Mayweather started to slander him, say things like he was taking drugs. When you start running into people like that, itís best that you stay away from them. Itís not even necessary to even have them in your life. But if the fight does take place, I think that Pacquiao wins because heís got the momentum, he has a real trainer, and heís willing to take the fight. Heíd probably beat Mayweather, probably. Not to say Mayweather isnít a wonderful fighter. He is the best fighter Iíve ever seen in my life, but he canít beat Pacquiao because there is something else going on in that fight business. Not the Xís and the Oís, but thereís something else.

Haha!

But seriously. Why would Mayweather want to avoid Pac if he's the more likely winner (bookmakers favorite)?

Me thinks it is Manny who might have a need to avoid Floyd. Or more specifically "Pac inc" might have a need (since Manny is more dependent on endorsements and by avoiding defeat Manny can avoid being potentially less market-friendly)

George Foreman begs to differ

Exactly. Mayweather fought an old, out of his prime Mosley. Early on in his career Mosley called Floyd out several times but Mayweather dodged him like the plague.

But Pac is just such an easy person to like. He's a monster in the ring, a gentleman off it and he's even a freaking congressman in the Phillipines. I'm pretty sure Nike could think up some advertisements even if he were to lose against Floyd.

Actually Mosley dodged Mayweather a couple times

aceX 09-20-2010 07:02 PM

Even then Mosley nearly knocked out Mayweather in the second round. Mosley never went in for the kill, though =/

Spin-A-Lot 09-21-2010 03:32 AM

Unfortunately this fight will never happen...Floyd will never take second billing to Pacman...and besides, it'll be a boring one anway since Floyd will just be running away from Pacman in the ring ;)
