Let’s get the facts straight…Floyd “Money” Mayweather isn’t ducking Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.
The truth of the matter is Manny Pacquiao and Bob Arum never agreed to “random drug testing without a cutoff date,” instead, they agreed to a 14 day cutoff for the Olympic style drug testing, so, that is why the fight didn’t get made.
Manny still doesn’t want to take the random blood tests that will catch a fighter if he is taking EPO, Steroids, or other Illegal Performance Enhancement Drugs.
Manny’s excuse for not taking the Olympic style random blood tests is because he is scared of needles and giving blood too soon will weaken him before a fight.
This shows that Pacquiao is mentally weak compared to Floyd because he is superstitious that the blood will weaken him in the fight when it’s been medically proven that the small amount of blood won’t make you weak before a fight. But, he could be hiding something and doesn’t want to be found out. Whatever the reason, it’s the main problem for the fight not happening.
People are so quick to blame Floyd Mayweather for everything but be careful what you wish for because a pissed off Floyd Mayweather Jr. is not someone you wanna be in the boxing ring with. Floyd Mayweather, when he is mad can toy with you in the worst way, he will take you into deep waters and drown your ass. Watch what he did to Diego Corrales and Arturo Gatti, he demolished those guys with amazingly brilliant technical boxing and counter punch combination’s.
Before those fights people were building up Diego “Chico” Corrales and Arturo “Thunder” Gatti as the ones to defeat Floyd Mayweather and that pissed Floyd off, so, he had to prove a point and he unleashed hell on them.
Diego Corrales was the baddest man at superfeatherweight he was a knockout artist who was destroying guys left and right and just like Floyd Mayweather he was undefeated at the time. When Floyd fought Corrales he toyed with him, it was hit and not get hit, it was so beautiful and unreal, you would have thought you were watching the Flash in there because Mayweather was so quick he was able to land punches and didn’t get hit. People were saying that Corrales would destroy Floyd but it was Floyd who destroyed the fearsome KO artist that night and handed him his first loss. They said Gatti would bully Floyd but Gatti couldn’t even close the distance or land a single punch on Floyd.
Floyd Mayweather never ducked anyone. He fought the best in his division and he beat prime and undefeated fighters. Manny Pacquiao has never beaten a prime fighter or undefeated top guy ever! All of Manny’s opponents were hand fed to him by Freddie Roach and Bob Arum.
Manny fought hand picked, drained and shot fighters like, Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, Paper Champion David Diaz, war torn Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya, all these guys were damaged goods before Pacquiao fought them and now Manny is gonna fight Antonio Margarito, who was stopped by Sugar Shane Mosley, at a catchweight. Margarito is another fighter tailor made for Pacquiao and the fight proves nothing.
The only top prime fighter that Manny Pacquiao fought in his life was Juan Manuel Marquez and both times Manny Pacquiao was given gift decisions when he really lost those fights. Look what Mayweather did to Marquez, he schooled him, Mayweather had no trouble with Marquez while Pacquiao went through hell and back with Juan Manuel Marquez and Marquez put on boxing lesson against Manny Pacquiao.
Floyd doesn’t have to talk to the media about the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao negotiations failing again because this time there were no negotiations, so, there is nothing for Floyd to talk about.
The truth is Floyd is not scared of Manny Pacquiao. Floyd just wants a clean an even playing field, and if Manny takes the random drug tests without a cutoff date, then, Floyd Mayweather will tax that ass.
