We all know Manny Pacquiao as a nice guy; at least that’s what his image is.

He states that—ever since he quit smoking, drinking and partying—his life has greatly improved. He made a dive head-first into religion and family and has become a religious icon in his home of the Philippines. He loves it, and his family and friends see the change, and the boxing community most certainly approve of it.

Now more focused, Pacquiao might be ready to take a fight with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to the next level.

He is serious to the point of considering visiting Mayweather Jr. in jail to have a talk and possibly come up with a winning scenario for both fighters.

According to BoxingScene.com, when asked about Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao had the following to say: "I don't know. We didn't have any conversations with him. I'm so focused and concentrated on the fight on Saturday. I'm open [to the idea], I would [consider it]. He is my brother in Christ and I pray for him that everything will be fine."

Call me crazy, but this idea is insane. First of all, visiting Floyd in jail is not only an inconsiderate and embarrassing scenario for Mayweather Jr. but will definitely not help any positive outcome. Really, what can they possibly discuss there? How much time would they possibly have to talk? Is Floyd even allowed visitors?

Instead of doing something like that, maybe Manny should inform Bob Arum that the fight will happen in 2012, whether or not Arum believes it makes financial sense.

There is only one way to make this fight finally happen, and I think that this deal should be discussed with the two fighters talking face to face without any advisers or promoters in sight.
