This one doesn't need any explaining. It’s been the talk of the boxing world for the last five years, but let’s go over it anyway.
After the devastating knockout loss in 2012 to Marquez, Pacquiao has bounced back with two impressive wins against Rios and Bradley. The 34-year-old has redeemed himself to a degree and appears ready to take on anyone, including Mayweather.
In September Mayweather put on a dominate performance against the much younger Saul Alvarez. Then in his most recent fight, he had some early trouble with Maidana but made the adjustments to win the fight.
Though the fight doesn't hold the same weight it once did, it is still the holy grail in the world of boxing. Fans have desperately craved this fight for years now, but it has been blocked for myriad reasons.
Pacquiao might not be the force he once was, but he is still one of the best on the planet. He holds the best chance of dethroning the pound-for-pound champ because of his quick hands, awkward style and ability to throw power combinations.
Just the thought of this fight not being made makes fans cringe. The bout would break numerous pay-per-view records on name recognition alone.
With Pacquiao signing an extension with Top Rank through 2016, this superfight will remain tough to make.
But come on, guys: Find a way to somehow get this one signed, sealed and delivered before it is too late!
