As always, the facts of the situation disagree with your opinion.

50 CENT – “Yes. That’s a 100 million dollars, and he just left it. At this point, it’s more him sorting out who’s the perfect opponent than him fighting the toughest fighter to fight.”

STEPHEN A SMITH (longtime die-hard Floyd-supporter), ESPN. – “I’m saying because of the Manny Pacquiao I saw yesterday, I have to believe that Floyd is DUCKING.”

MIKE TYSON – “Hey listen, he doesn’t want to fight the guy, it’s obvious. I don’t know if he’s scared of him or not, but he just obviously doesn’t want to fight the guy.”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR. – “My son fighting that little man, I’m concerned about my son’s life.”
TIM BRADLEY – “Floyd doubts himself. Why won’t he fight Manny? Scared, man. He don’t wanna fight that. Floyd don’t wanna fight that. He don’t wanna see Manny in the ring.”

LARRY HOLMES – “Pacquiao did all he can. He did all I would have done. I think Mayweather just got a little too scared if you ask me. If he thinks Pacquiao is taking drugs so what, he should just say: ‘You take it, you kill yourself that isn’t going to help you, because with my talent and ability I believe I can still beat you.’ But he was scared to take that challenge. If they never fight it won’t be Pacquiao’s fault. Every time they came round to fighting, Mayweather put his excuses in.”

JAMES TONEY – “It shows you right there that Mayweather’s not a man. If you be the best fighter in the world, you fight the guys, know what I’m sayin’? No matter, don’t put down no stupid ***** stipulations, right. Hey, he should be a little scared. And Pacquiao is proving he’s one of the best fighters in his era, in this decade.”

MICHAEL IRVIN – “I want Mayweather to stop messing around and making us brothers look bad by running. Okay, listen. Stop running, man. You’re making the brothers look bad. Get in the ring, even if you lose, it’s an honorable loss.”
ATG radio – “Do you really think that we’ll ever see Manny Pacquiao/Floyd Mayweather fight?”

GEORGE FOREMAN – “No. Not at all. No, it’s not gonna happen. Mayweather had a chance to do that fight years ago, and maybe for good reasons, he didn’t want it because there was a chance that , in early when he made up his mind to come back in boxing, Pacquiao would’ve run over him! Then they got a little even in time, and then Mayweather got pretty smart and understood, hey, why? I’m making all this money without fighting him, why fight him? So now there is definitely no reason to do it.”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR – “My health is more important than money. They can take all the money, my health is more important.”

Even Roy Jones say Floyd ducked Pac
And yet there's still the Mayweather D-riders in here claiming Manny's the punk.

I say yes, after PacMan beats Bradley the conversation will be brought up again, this time for real, theare are about 3 fights remaining on Mayweathers Showtime contract and to not do that fight would be stupid, only if too much money is a problem for floyd.

Alter? Nope, I mean like trying to toss the "fanboy" moniker out there when someone isn't devoted to inventing ways of trying to tarnish the guy's reputation.

Manny already has 60+ pro fights. Mayweather just going to wait until Manny is beat down and past his prime? Part of his strategy probably.

I got some questions!!!

How about Manny offer a fight to Mayweather then?? Oh yea,,, he can't. Manny was directly offered $40 million to fight Mayweather, but of course Bob Arum wouldn't allow him to take it and he missed out.

How many $40 million paydays had Pacman had?

What's his record over his past 5 fights?

Who got knocked out in their 4th fight with the same guy? After arguably losing most of the fights in the series anyway?

I like Manny and I really hope the fight gets made....but let's be real. Both sides take some blame for this fight not happening at its peak, a couple years ago. Overall, Floyd does not need Manny to cement his legacy.
