Floyd Mayweather Jr. proved once again how great he is with his win over Miguel Cotto, but that still doesn't make him the greatest fighter in the world.

Well, not undisputed, at least.

You see, Manny Pacquiao already beat Cotto before Money May got to him and it's just another thing that both of these great fighters have accomplished. By no means is Cotto a pushover, but both fighters have had great success against him.

There's no question that if these two are going to lose at all the rest of their careers, it will be to each other.

So, what will happen if Money May never fights Pac-man?

The doubt will always linger if Mayweather was ever truly better than Pacquiao or vice-versa. It is the single thing boxing fans alike want to know and don't care about anything else beyond that.

They certainly don't care about undefeated records or potential money splits, that's for sure.

While Pacquiao has a fight scheduled on June 9th against a tough fighter in Timothy Bradley, Money May will be doing a short stint in jail for his out of the ring issues.

It remains to be seen if the two sides will ever come to terms, but it's clear that more waiting is on the horizon for the future of this fight. Boxing fans will be patient because of their burning desire to make it happen.

Just don't keep us waiting forever.

The clock on a potential fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao is ticking and if either fighter ever wants to be truly the greatest of this generation, they must man up and beat the other.
