What is going on here? First Floyd Mayweather avoided the subject of a fight with Manny Pacquiao, and now he wants it. Or does he really?
Seems Mayweather is confused. You get the impression he doesn’t know if fighting Pacquiao is a good move. He wants to stay undefeated. But not fighting Pacquiao would mean he stays undefeated by refusing to fight his greatest match. Cowardice also isn’t a good move. But perhaps this time it’s not empty talk.
Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is the most anticipated fight in boxing now.
But perhaps Mayweather has other tricks up his sleeve. Maybe Mayweather has been ready to make his move and was just acting coy:
Mayweather now doesn’t have much of a choice. If Mayweather loses, it’s still better than not fighting. Fans just want to see a fight. But all this hesitance on Mayweather’s part may follow him into the ring as fear. Pacquiao will have that much of an easier victory.
Mayweather, if your career is going to end right now, whether from fighting and losing or refusing to fight, just be clear with people. If you really don’t want to fight, it’s your decision. You and Manny can stay in your respective corners for your entire career.
Floyd wants to preserve his legacy as a winner. Or is it really all about the money?
