Promoter: Floyd Mayweather Jr. avoiding fight with Manny Pacquiao

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has never lost a fight. The 37-year-old is 47-0 and considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

His biggest competition would be Manny Pacquiao, which is why people are so eager to see the two fight.
According to promoter Bob Arum, however, the above reasons are precisely why Mayweather is avoiding a bout with Pacquiao.

"The real problem is that Mayweather is so damn smart when it comes to boxing and he realizes that of all the fighters fought and all the fighters out there that Manny poses the biggest threat. Why? Because Manny is fast, Manny can punch and Manny is left handed. Floyd never wants to fight a left handed fighter because his style is designed to fight orthodox fighters," Arum told World Boxing News last week.

"So to get Mayweather in the ring with Pacquiao is a monumental task. Not because of splits, not because of money, because Manny stands the best chance of anybody that Floyd has faced to beat him."...

Jesus christ, doesn't Bob ever just shut up or does it always need to be done in the media?  He knows how Floyd is yet he insists on making inflammatory comments that likely will not help the situation.

Actually I think that tactic is what Bob hopes lands the fight.

It worked very well for Ricky Hatton.

Yep. And it means one of two things;

1) it builds hype for cbs to cash in on a fight they know will be made

Or

2) cbs is getting tired of floyds hesitation and wants to pressure him into the ring with Manny.

Either way,the fact is that floyd has avoided manny for 5 years.

The guys are past their best.

Time to fight.

Spoken like a true homo with a mind that can't help but spew filth.

The reality is that floyd has avoided manny.

Only one side ever presses for the fight.

And the other just... Makes excuses.  

Deal with it.

For what it's worth, Floyd was the one who originally agreed in principle to fight....but then he started with the random testing and it's been downhill from there.

As much as I hate to admit it, Arum's comments here were the truth. Floyd wants to retire undefeated and Manny is the biggest threat to that.

Scared of what exactly? Manny hasn't KO'd anyone in years and couldn't clearly beat Marquez after 4 attempts...Mayweather would school Pacquiao!
