Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s unanimous-decision victory over Miguel Cotto was further proof that Money May truly has nobody left to fight other than Manny Pacquiao.

Money has beat the best of the best throughout his career and is still undefeated. Anybody you put in front of him, not only does he win, but he beats his opponents handily.

Like Mayweather, Pacquiao has been doing much of the same. You put somebody in front of him and he beats them down or outlasts them long enough to get the win.

It's plain and simple: the only fighters in the world who can beat Money and Pac-man are Pac-man and Money.

Unfortunately, the fight continues to be held up by a money dispute that has Money wanting more cash than Pac-Man in the fight.

The fact that this megafight hasn't happened and likely won't happen the longer it goes, is a travesty. Here boxing has two of its greatest fighters and an entire fanbase dying to find out who is truly better than the other.

But we can't see it.

It'll be a while before the Mayweather-Pacquiao conversation even comes up again.

Pacquiao will be squared away against Timothy Bradley on June 9th, while Money May is set to do a short stint in jail to pay for his out-of-ring issues.

We can only hope that after all that, the focus will return to making Pacquiao-Mayweather more than just a pipe dream and conversation.
