Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Who the **** wants to pay $40 watch two grandpas duke it out for 30 seconds?

This is the best that UFC can offer as of late?

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

It's over. No Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Mayweather Won't Rush Into Fight - Associated Press

"MIAMI -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. allowed a deadline for striking a deal on a superfight with Manny Pacquiao to pass without saying anything.

A day later, Mayweather indicated that his stance wouldn't be changing anytime soon.

"I'm not interested in rushing to do anything," Mayweather told The Associated Press.

Appearing in Miami on Sunday as a coach at a charity basketball game hosted by Dwyane Wade and Alonzo Mourning, Mayweather happily fielded questions about the NBA. But when talk turned to boxing -- and Pacquiao in particular -- the fighter known as Money simply wouldn't respond.

Mayweather's camp did not respond to a deadline early Saturday put in place by Pacquiao promoter Top Rank for exclusive negotiations, which has put what could be the richest fight in boxing history in doubt. Mayweather and Pacquiao are clearly the two biggest stars in the sport but have not signed a deal despite months of negotiations.

"I'm not really thinking about boxing right now," Mayweather said. "I'm just relaxing. I fought about 60 days ago, so I'm just enjoying myself, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying my vacation."

Mayweather has appeared at the event Mourning founded known as the Summer Groove in past years, plus has grabbed courtside seats at Heat games during previous trips to Miami. But there was a certain irony to his appearance Sunday: Mayweather was a coach on the bench that the Heat occupy, sitting in the seat that Miami coach Erik Spoelstra uses during games.

Spolestra is of Filipino descent, and is a huge Pacquiao fan.

"I'm supporting all basketball players because I'm a fan of basketball," Mayweather said.

Pacquiao already has agreed to an equitable split of the earnings from the megafight, along with extensive drug testing. The two sides nearly came to terms earlier this year, but the fight didn't happen then because Pacquiao was reticent about blood testing close to a fight.

Pacquiao ended up routing Joshua Clottey before about 50,000 fans at Cowboys Stadium in March, while Mayweather easily defeated Shane Mosley in May.

Although he hasn't spoken directly to Mayweather, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said he believes the former pound-for-pound champion might be reluctant to fight this year because of the legal woes of Roger Mayweather, his uncle and longtime trainer.

Roger Mayweather will go on trial in Las Vegas next month on assault charges stemming from an altercation with a female boxer last year.

If the fight with Mayweather doesn't happen, Pacquiao could fight recently crowned junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto, whom he's already defeated, or former welterweight champion Antonio Margarito. Arum said that Pacquiao plans to fight Nov. 13 regardless of the opponent.

As for Mayweather, well, only he seems to know.

"Like I said, I'm just supporting my family and relaxing," Mayweather said. "That's what I'm doing right now."

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

It would be awesome if a letter writing rally was set where every boxing fan would write letters and mail them to Mayweather's house saying that if he doesn't fight Manny, then he isn't GOAT.

Well, more detailed than that. But still, it'd be like Rocky II when Creed got all of those letters after Rocky I.

What about every other boxing fan (the ones that like Floyd but who's sense of denial isn't strong enough to avoid calling him a ***** any more)?

He doesn't want to take the biggest fight of his career when his trainer might end up in jail. As much as I want the fight to happen I can't really blame Floyd.

This is a valid point and I will leave it at that. I am disappointed, but there are other fights to look forward to.

I really have a feeling it never will. I think floyd has enough money that hes earned already and is just to self concious of his perfect record, and maybe he thinks that any marketing opprotunities after he retires would come from being undefeated.

I think if this was on the table 5-8 years ago when floyd hasnt gotten enough wins to worry about protecting a perfect record and he hadnt made enough money to leave this much on the table It would for sure happen.

Im obviously hoping im wrong.

Mayweather's reputation will never recover from this.

This has become his legacy.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Taking a vacation is a pretty lame excuse. He just came back from a 2 year retirement.

If he would have said "I want to see what happens to my uncle first. I'll fight Pacquiao in 2011" or something like that, then I would accept it. But taking a vacation? Cmon Floyd.

I hope your right in the sense that I hope he doesnt get rewarded from walking away from fighters.

Also If im right about him not wanting to take the fight because hes scared of not going undeafted I think its super lame because I dont think his legacy gets knocked to much if he loses in a close decision or something if it does at all.

I think your right that if he walks away from the fight he should be hurt more than if he lost by decision (if he gets knocked out, then thats a different story).

I think this gives more credence to the fact that it wont happen, also this delay seems huge to me because floyd isnt getting any younger and hes squeaked by his last few fights winning by decision so maybe he even realizes hes going downhill a little bit.

Mmhmm.

I don't think anyone looks down on Thomas Hearns for losing to Leonard and Hagler. If they do, they're not worth talking to.
