My rant will be blunt and to the point. As a boxing fan I think we are entitled to our opinions.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is scared to lose!
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has made it known he doesn’t care about legacy and who the fans want to see him fight, he only cares about how much money he can make so he can throw it away to a crowd of low life club goers in hopes of impressing them…Floyd, money can’t buy you true friends or love and adoration that men like Pacquiao receive…you must earn those things.
Floyd Mayweather’s father, Floyd Sr., and his trainer uncle Roger both have hinted that Pacquiao is on steroids or performance enhancing drugs, and Floyd’s father even openly admitted he doesn’t want his son to fight Pacquiao probably because he knows Pacman has a shot at beating his son but insists that Pacquiao has no skill and needs steroids to do what he does.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn’t want this fight, he knew Pacman has a fear of giving blood right before the fight and knows Pacquiao will not allow it to happen so it gives him a way out by putting doubt over Pacquiao’s head with the steroid accusations.
If the fight does go through he only wants to face Pacquiao if he can get him weak before the fight by messing with his head mentally and physically by taking blood from him throughout training camp…Floyd doesn’t need to be explosive in the ring anyway so the blood taking won’t bother him like it would Pacman because Floyd fights economically anyway and likes to win on points without spending much energy.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn’t care about the fans, he knows that if he loses he will never make millions of dollars again because people already seen him lose and that is the only reason they pay to watch his fights to see him humbled.
Pacquiao wants this fight bad, he wanted this fight so bad that he even decided to make the fight on March 13, 2010 instead of May 1st or September.
Pacquiao was ready to go, he agreed to everything calling Mayweather’s bluff and said lets fight earlier in March, everything was ready, set, go until Golden Boy and Mayweather’s team came up with the random Olympic style blood testing by the USADA a private owned group who Floyd’s promoter, Oscar De La hoya, supposedly has a good relationship with.
Pacquiao has stated in the past that when he lost to Morales in their 2005 encounter that they randomly took blood from him 2 days before the fight while he was cutting weight and didn’t have enough fluids in him, after they took blood he felt dizzy and didn’t have the confidence in his punches because his arms felt weak….Mayweather’s team found out about this and demanded Olympic style blood tests.
Pacquiao is still open to the fight and never ever said the fight was off, his promoter Bob Arum was the one who called the fight off. The 78 year old Arum doesn’t want to deal with Mayweather’s crazy demand of taking the drug testing out of the NSAC’s jurisdiction and into their own by hiring an outside source to test both fighters.
The reason why this fight may never happen is because the boxing fans want it and the public wants it. And when the fans and public want someone to fight Floyd badly, Floyd knows it’s a dangerous fight for him because of how much people want him to lose and get his mouth shut.
Floyd knows that the fighter the boxing fans want him to face next are the ones who are the biggest threats to him and have a shot at beating him, like Shane Mosley, Antonio Margarito, Miguel Cotto, Paul Williams and Manny Pacquiao and that is why these fights have never happen.
Mayweather cannot crown himself the best fighter that is something only the fans can crown you.
This is why Pacquiao is “The Peoples Champion”, Floyd is not the commission and has no right to enforce blood testing on his opponent, leave that up to the State in which you fight in.
If it wasn’t for the fans paying for Floyd Mayweather’s pay per views he wouldn’t be able to brag about all the money, cars, houses and yachts he owns.
Give the fans what they want and give the sport of boxing the fight we want and need.

I am an avid fan of boxing and video games. My first fight of memory was watching Prince Naseem Hamed destroy Kevin Kelly. I enjoy all aspects of the sport. My favorite current boxer is Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. My favorite boxing match is Diego Corrales vs. Jose Luis Castillo 1. I love watching boxing on Pay-Per-View more than being there live because you can really enjoy and watch the action from the best view.
