Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is not a draw anymore, when he was a draw his Pay-Per-View numbers were lower than the real cash cow, he was always in the back seat right behind the king Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr., the only reason people watched Pacquiao fight was because his name was linked to Floyd’s.
Now that Manny was exposed by Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley, people realized how overrated and over-hyped he was. The media tried to build this guy up so he can beat Mayweather when in reality Pacquiao and his promoter Bob Arum were just using Floyd’s name to sell fights.
Pacman was never going to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his promoter Bob Arum and trainer Freddie Roach knew that he was never going to be able to beat someone as great as Floyd, so they fooled the public and used the media into thinking Pacquiao was this powerhouse by cherrypicking the right opponents, and when they ran out of weak opponents they had no choice but to fight Timothy Bradley. Bradley is undefeated and a good boxer, but he ain’t on Floyd’s level in terms of skills, and you seen how he outboxed Manny, just imagine how Floyd would do if he fought Manny? It would be humiliating.
If Pacquiao doesn’t fight Floyd Mayweather next, nobody cares! We don’t want to see Marquez fight Pacman for a fourth time only to get robbed again, and we don’t want to see a rematch with Miguel Cotto at another catchweight, and the Bradley rematch can wait because another loss to Bradley will kill the Mayweather fight for good. The only ones who will care for Pacquiao against anyone but Floyd are his diehard fans over in the Philippines but they won’t even pay for the pay-per-view since I heard they get it for free. Pacquiao vs. Bradley didn’t even break 1 million buys, the sales were so poor they didn’t even release the actual number, I heard rumors anywhere from 700-800 thousand buys.
The best move for Bob Arum is to throw Manny in there with Floyd already because a lot of blind boxing fans actually think Pacquiao beat Bradley and still think he can beat Floyd. Arum will make a lot of money and Pacquiao will get his highest payday against Mayweather.
