We’ve all been duped by the greatest con man in all of sports, his name is Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he wants to clean up the sport of boxing by requesting Olympic style drug testing or USADA random testing of Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.
Well, that is all great, but if you really want to clean up the sport of boxing and make it more credible, then, fight Manny Pacquiao!
Boxing in recent years has been criticized for not giving the people the fights they want to see. Remember the Riddick Bowe vs. Lennox Lewis super-fight that never happened? Floyd Mayweather reminds me of Riddick Bowe who would rather throw his built in the trash than face his prime rival Lennox Lewis who was in a similar situation as Manny Pacquiao.
By Mayweather fighting Manny Pacquiao he cleans the sport up, he will have his random blood test thing and he will make a fight happen that the world wants to see, giving boxing the positive spotlight it so desperately needs. This is a reason why more people are watching UFC or mixed martial arts more than boxing because Dana White puts on the big fights and the fighters don’t demand $50 million dollars a fight.
The spotlight is on boxing more than ever and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has the real opportunity to truly help the sport by fighting Manny Pacquiao but it seems Floyd is all smoke and mirrors, his true intention was to never clean up the sport of boxing it was to use the Olympic drug testing to avoid a fight with Manny Pacquiao and to use Manny Pacquiao’s name so he could sell big ppv numbers against Juan Manuel Marquez and Sugar Shane Mosley and pay off his debt.
Floyd came out of retirement at the right time. He was riding on the momentum of people praising Pacquiao and asking Floyd to come out of retirement to face him, so Floyd comes out of retirement to tease us but he was never going to fight Pacquiao in the first place, that is the trick he played on all of us and the further damage he has done to the sport of boxing.
The random blood testing with a 14-day cut off was agreed upon but Floyd had to come up with another ridiculous demand of 60-40 purse split in his favor.
The Mayweather family came up with some of the most far out excuses to why they don’t want to fight Pacquiao.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. said countless times that he wouldn’t want his son to fight Manny Pacquiao because he is taking some steroid that you have no clue about, I mean, how much more clearer does it get than that?
Your father doesn’t like you fighting southpaws, he said he knows the style that can beat you and he doesn’t want you to fight Pacquiao because of how he destroyed bigger men in the ring. Floyd Sr. and Roger Mayweather’s steroid accusations are so ridiculous because they don’t even know exactly what Manny is on or have PROOF of what type of magical elixir Manny is taking.
Floyd Sr. has no word of honor or class, he recently called Manny Pacquiao a “F@ggot, Bitch, Pussy, Sissy and Scared Little Girl” on The On The Ropes Boxing Radio Show. Floyd Sr. is one to talk when he is a former drug dealer, crook and criminal who has a soiled reputation. Looks like he is the scared one not Manny Pacquiao.
Stop holding your breath because the fight will never happen anytime soon.
