I'll forgive those boxing fans who didn't catch the hint that in a previous article I wrote that Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao couldn't give Walker Smith a run for his money.  Smith later changed his name to "Sugar" Ray Robinson.

Speaking of Mayweather, I have a proposal for you: Let me set up your next fight with a very good fighter whose nickname is the "Hurricane."

We're not talking about Rubin "The Hurricane" Carter, but another Filipino boxer not named Pacquiao.

Since Mayweather is catching heat after being accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, he can keep his undefeated streak alive by taking on Ana "The Hurricane" Julaton, who's Filipino-American.  She won the WBO Women's Bantamweight title recently.

I know that Mayweather has the weight advantage over Julaton, but Freddie Roach will whip her into shape against him.  Plus, Roach is still mad at Mayweather for chickening out and refusing to fight his top prize fighter.

Pacquiao is what I call a typhoon, which, I believe, is stronger than a hurricane.  We can go back and forth on why the Pac Man and Mayweather didn't agree on blood testing, money, catchweight, etc.  The bottom line is they're not hooking up to dance in the ring.

You never know.  "The Hurricane" might give "Money" a run for his money and hit harder than any woman he ever knew.  Here's to a chance for Mayweather to fight a Filipino who is a female version of Pacquiao.

Spring is almost here and it's time for Mayweather to come out of hibernation.  Sometimes tropical storms occur in the spring and summer.  That's why I think Mayweather will survive the hurricane, but not the typhoon.

Where can I comment?
