Floyd Mayweather has spent the better part of his career antagonizing, taunting and then beating every opponent ever put in front of him.

Equally as brilliant, Manny Pacquiao has won a major title in every weight class between 105-147 lbs.

So it seemed only fitting that the two most talented fighters of this era face off. It would be the ultimate contrast in styles, Manny Pacquiao is a storm in the ring who never stops moving forward. On the other side, Floyd Mayweather is arguably the sport’s best defensive fighter ever! If they ever stepped in the same ring it would undoubtedly shatter all pay per view records.

Yet getting them to share a ring is like getting Democrats and Republicans to endorse the same candidate. Twice this year the two fighters camps were unable to agree on terms for a fight. The bickering got so bad that the groups went to mediation but even that proved to be an exercise in futility.
