There simply isn't anyone out there right now who can beat PB.

He's still just too good...
lol....SO WHY DOESN'T HE JUST FIGHT HIM THEN?


If he's not in his league, why doesn't he just whoop him up good and be done with him?


Mayweather (I refuse to refer to him as "Money") is a straight b*tch.


SMDH.

You're embarrassing yourself, Govie.

Pretty Boy is clearly one of the best boxers in your lifetime. Got the whole package -- elite talent, superior intelligence, and a blue-collar work ethic. Every bit as good as the great welterweights of the late '70s early '80s, in my view.

He will expose and toy with the inferior Pacquiao if they ever fight...

They never will fight because Mayweather don't want anything to do with him.

So, yeah...

Floyd will likely pull a Riddick Bowe and drop his WBC belt so he won't have to fight an opponent who he is afraid to lose to. When Lennox Lewis was declared a mandatory challenger for Bowe's belt he tossed it in the trash rather than risk being defeated. Look to Floyd to do the same thing. He will forfeit his WBC title before risking his undefeated record to Pacquiao.

Meanwhile, no one has been able to give a reasonable justification for Khan getting a shot over the likes of Manny or Garcia. Otter than money, which is all Floyd really cares about so long as the risk is minimal.

Truly though, I think Khan has a shot against Mayweather. Watching Khan against Marcos Maidana and Danny Garcia I think his speed and accuracy could really be an issue in this fight.

Even if Mayweather continues to duck Pacquaio(which I think he is), I think this fight will be much more competitive even than his bout with Miguel Cotto.

The Khan proposal is a bad idea. Mayweather has to remember that the public buys his fights to see him lose, not walk through people. I predict this fight will have the lowest PPV results of all Mayweather fights.

Khan would be a nice tune-up for PB for a bigger (not to mention easier) payday in September against the overrated Filipino...

Mayweather has provided his loyal followers with yet another excuse. Now he won't fight Pacquiao because his PPV numbers weren't high enough in his last fight against Rios. Yet, Khan didn't have any PPV numbers in his last two fights. So to recap, Khan was KO'd by Garcia who is smaller than Foyd, he was knocked down by his last opponent, a washed up Julio Diaz and squeaked out a close decision. Yet somehow he is more worthy than Manny. Got it. Good to see mediocrity is alive and kicking.

Pacquiao needs to get away from Top Rank, join Golden Boy, or ride solo like Cotto. I don't know what is wrong with him , the money, more quality fighters, and fame is on the other side. I don't want to see Pacquiao fight a 41 year old Marquez for the fifth tim. I don't want to see him fight Bradley again.

I don't understand why Floyd picked Khan over Pacquiao. Pacquiao would bring in more numbers. Forget the 1-2 of his last three fights, the guy is legend and has long enough quality fighters throughout his career. I am not saying Floyd is dodging Pacquiao, but it looks like it, and its getting ridiculous.


This is actually hurting the sport of Boxing.
