Boxing Has Betrayed Us Again!

   With the proposed Floyd Mayweather JR. ( 40-0 ) Vs. Manny Paquiao (50-3-2)   fight  being called because of a failure to agree on drug tests. I say Boxing has betrayed us! I must say this is just the latest reason for me to not really care about a once great sport.

            Growing up in the 70's and 80's I was privileged to witness some of the greatest fighters and fights in history. Names like Ali, Frazier, Leonard,and Duran, Hagler, Hearns, etc, etc. These men faught wars in the ring. They faught each fight like it was there last.

            Today there are no such fights or fighters. Today's boxing is full of middle aged men who won't walk away and paper champions who will do whatever they can to avoid a fight with another top fighter.

            These promotion companies ( top rank, golden boy ) should be ashamed robbing boxing fans of what could have been one for the ages.

            It is not enough to have two heavy weight champions (the Klitchko's ) who will never square off!  We can only wonder who could have won a fight between Mayweather and Paquaio. I say it doesn't matter I mean why should we even care? If boxing wants to kill it's self I say go on get it over with. If not give boxing fans what they want. Resolve your issues and put together this fight and many fights like it.
