While Floyd Mayweather has time to reflect on his life in jail, he will likely think about his tough fight with Miguel Cotto and compare it to Manny Pacquiao’s fight with Cotto, and he will probably say to himself “man how did little Pacquiao knock this guy down and take his power punches like they were nothing?”
I am pretty sure he will contemplate retirement while serving time for domestic violence, but the deciding factor will be determined on whether or not Manny Pacquiao beats Timothy Bradley on June 9th and looks good in the process. If the Pacman dominates the undefeated, young, and strong Bradley, Mayweather will probably retire from boxing to remain undefeated, and continue to spew more lies about Pacquiao to tarnish his legacy, hoping those lies will become the truth.
When you have a very envious person like Floyd Mayweather in the power position, he will always make things difficult because he is very insecure and has to flaunt his status to make him feel superior, this is exactly why he holds up the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather super-fight because he is genuinely fearful of Pacquiao and jealous of all of the accomplishments and praises that Pacquiao receives from the boxing writers and the fans.
If Pacquiao loses to Bradley or struggles with him, Mayweather will breathe a sigh of relief and tell everyone that Pacquiao lost to a C level fighter and would have been easy work for him. If Pacquiao puts on an amazing display of boxing and brawling versus Bradley, even more roadblocks will come up, or Floyd may finally call it quits.
I hope I am wrong, and Floyd doing time in jail will toughen him up and help him muster enough courage to finally get over his fear and fight the Pacman (if he beats Bradley), but I won’t keep my hopes up or else I will be let down like that teen from Make-A-Wish-Foundation who said his biggest wish was for Floyd to fight Manny, and Floyd without hesitation rejected his wish.

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.
