Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao
Will Floyd Mayweather fight Manny Pacquiao? From the amount of worldwide interest in this fight it just has to happen. Thanks mainly to the internet, millions and millions of people, some that weren't even boxing fans before Manny Pacquiao became such a well known, and much admired boxing superstar, want to see this fight.
This fight screams money, lots of it. I would say this fight has a big chance of generating the biggest amount of PPV buys ever seen. It will probably be the biggest money fight of all time. This fight is global, the whole world wants and waits for this fight. No matter who wins, both fighters will be very rich after the fight (as if they weren't already!).
Floyd Mayweather is such a money lover there is no way he will be able to resist the tempation of a showdown with Manny Pacquiao. In an interview i seen recently of Floyd talking about Pacquiao and the possibility of fighting him, Floyd seemed slightly scared in my opinion, like he knows Pacquiao is an elite fighter, and that he will be tested like never before if he agrees to fight Pacquiao.
If Floyd does not fight Pacquiao he will lose a lot of respect from everyone involved in boxing, from the fans to the promoters, and everyone else including the fighters. Many people already consider Floyd to have ducked a considerable amount of fighters already, and with the world watching and wanting this fight like never before, he has to step up to the plate.
If Manny Pacquiao wins, there is no doubt that he is the true pound for pound number one boxer on the planet. He has already acheived so much inside and outside the ring, and Mannys legacy is secured. But there is just this one niggling question people are asking..Can he beat Floyd Mayweather. Once this question has been answered, and if he does beat Floyd, Manny Pacquiao has to be one of the best boxers of all time.
Lets not forget how good Floyd Mayweather is though, this is a big ask of Manny Pacquiao. Floyd's skills are top notch, and to beat him will be tough because if Floyd can't beat Manny by going toe to toe, he will go into his shell, stay on the outside, and win this fight by a decision, boring yes, but getting the win.
I just hope Floyd Mayweathers outrageous purse split expectations don't get in the way of this potential superfight.
**Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao is confirmed.** The fight will take place in the spring of next year. Some well respected boxing experts are saying the first week of May 2010. There is way too much money at stake for the fight not to have happened. I can't wait for this fight!
Manny Pacquiao is the favorite to win this fight. The date is now said to have changed to September 2010
