It's now or never time for a Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather bout

By Kevin Iole -   Yahoo Sports
MACAU -- It's beyond ridiculous what boxing fans have had to put up with the last five years as they have waited, pleaded, hoped and, in some cases, even prayed for a bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The fact that it hasn't occurred minimizes the sport, detracts from the fighters' resumes and makes all involved look, to a greater or lesser extent, like fools for failing to make a sporting event that in one night could generate close to a quarter of a billion dollars.

Mayweather's zealous fans will blame Pacquiao and promoter Bob Arum. Pacquiao's even more ardent fan base will blame Mayweather and adviser Al Haymon.

It doesn't matter who is at fault. They're all to blame....

Now or never; I vote for never. The sensation of this bout ha ing never happened is far bigger than the fight itself ever would've been. Had they fought one of them would've lost and a year a two later no one would care. Instead they never fought so people treat the potential as an unstoppable force approaching an immovable object. In truth FMJ is closer to 40yrs old than he is 30yrs and both have clearly lost a step. The time is not now! The time has past!
