I’m really sick of reading various Pac-nuthuggers on here, posting purposefully false articles, on the subject of a Pacquiao vs. Mayweather bout.

 

Deliberately placing false information into the article, that they’ve quite simply made up,  to try and support their opinion.

 

When challenged on the subject, completely unable to produce any source information to support the opinion, that they’ve just written as fact.

 

I was thinking about going on to every article, and venting my spleen, but I thought this would be easier.

 

The Pacquiao vs. Mayweather bout, isn’t happening in the short term as neither Arum or Roach fancy Floyd as an opponent.

 

Arum, because he doesn’t like the money. Roach, because he doesn’t like Floyd’s style, and he would prefer to face “come forward” fighters.

 

Please find below an interview done by both Roach and Arum, previous to the Hatton fight, regarding the issue of his next opponent.

 

They both state clearly that they don’t want it to be Mayweather, and would prefer Cotto instead, because of his style.

The truth is predicatable. It's all down to the fact that Floyd's a technical counter puncher, like Marquez, and Manny doesn't deal with fighters like that very well.

 

Anything else is just posturing anf trying to save face
