Floyd Waywether Jr. has Victor Ortiz to deal with in less than a month. Still, the fight everyone is waiting for to happen, maybe in 2012 according to Pacquiao, maybe in 2013 according to Jeff Maywether, Floyd’s uncle, is “Pretty Boy” or “Money” vs the Pac-Man.
Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO’s) hasn’t fought May 2010, beating Shane Mosley, the last man Pacquiao has faces as well, in May 2011. Legal problems and the on going drug-testing debate with Pacquiao’s camp or maybe just boredom from the sport have kept Mayweather out of the ring. Still, taking his eyes off the WBC Welterweight champions in order to do some media trash talking with an opponent he might not face anytime soon doesn’t seem all the wise. Even if he is one of the greatest fighters of all time.
Mayweather claims Pacquiao will refuse to take the drug tests he requires because he doesn’t have any interest in the fight. Contrary to everything that’s been said, mind you. Mayweather demands Olympic drug testing, not Boxing sanctioned drug testing. As of late, the Pacquiao camp has been hinting the Manny will be willing to accept Mayweather’s demands, as he really wants this fight to happen next year.
Mayweather had this to say – It is what it is. I’m not here to say anything negative about Manny Pacquiao or Bob Arum. He do what he do, I do what I do. All I ask, as a gentleman, let us both take the test and let’s fight. It’s obvious Pacquiao don’t want to do it.
Is Mayweather, annoying and egotistical as he is, right? I don’t buy it. Either way, we’ll know much more after Mayweather fights Ortiz. And lets not forget, Manny Pacquiao has a fight, his third against Juan Manuel Marquez, on of his toughest opponents. It was a draw in their first fight, back in 2004, enraging both camps. In the second fight Pacquiao won after 12 rounds with a split decision. Marquez (53-5) has been looking for another re-match ever since.
