The most recent news for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight is that now Floyd is asking for $100,000,000 which he knows will never happen, so he is basically saying that he will never fight Pacquiao, but Who does he want to fight? I've heard that he is talking about a rematch with Ricky Hatton, that's all. He might as well not come back to boxing.

Mayweather will find whatever way he can, to avoid the fight. This fight will never happen.

Pacquiao should just announce that he has accepted that Mayweather doesn't want to fight.

If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't. Both Floyd and Manny have been great fighters and I have respect for them both. An argument can be made that both are ducking or have ducked at one time.

Ridiculous to continue these comments that one is ducking the other because of their most recent stance during ongoing negotiations.

there is a petition on a certain social networking site, get behind it people, maybe the fans can make it happen! i ssssooooooooooo much want it to happen, it will be a pity if it doesn't, these two great fighters, in my opinion, have a duty to fight each other, for the fans at least, we all want it to happen and it would be a waste of sublime talent if it doesn't go ahead

Pacquiao asked for the purse to be 50/50, Mayweather accepted. Which is quite something since he ALWAYS asks for the bigger piece of the pie. Pacquiao asked for a ring size, Mayweather accepted. Pacquiao asked for Mayweather to pay the outrageous amount of $1,000,000 pero extra pound if Mayweather goes beyond the weight limit, Mayweather accepted. Pacquiao asked for the venue, Mayweather accepted. And the list goes on. Mayweather asked for Pacquiao for a simple olympic style random blood test, Pacquiao refused.

Who's avoiding the fight? What is Pac hiding?

Where you been? The last round of negotiations Pacquiao accepted the terms of the test. Floyd went back into hiding. The fight will probably never happen. At least not until Manny shows signs of aging or wear from taking tough fights.

Mayweather should just stay away from Pacquiao. Now with Pacquiao rated #1, Mayweather would *have* to *beat* Pacquiao to get the win and that won't happen.

Mayweather played the wrong card (the drug card) and now his stock has dropped. I don't have anything against the guy, but I wouldn't pay to see Mayweather fight Pacquiao.

There are better contenders coming for Pacquiao. Mayweather is a moot point. Mayweather's style would make for a "one man running" fight. There are much better fights to see than a Mayweather one.
