Manny Pacquio and Floyd Mayweather Jr: Who Is Ducking Who in Boxing Dream Match?
Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. have absolutely no problem fighting.
As long as it is in the media, in the court room, or in a war of words.
Neither appears to have any desire whatsoever to actually accept a fight against the other inside the ring.
Where it belongs.
Mayweather Jr. says that Pacquiao must be using steroids, as he will not consent to the type of drug test that Mayweather Jr. wants in the contract. Pacquiao says that he is deathly afraid of needles and cannot submit to a test two weeks prior to their match.
Clearly, there is more to that story, and we may never find out who is actually who in what would be the ultimate boxing dream match.
But everyone has their own opinion.
Gina L. Caliboso of Ringside Report says that "Mayweather, JR., had been so adamant in his accusations of Pacquiao’s steroid use, etc etc. , he pushed, he talked, he bullied, until finally, his rants (but not on the level of Charlie Sheen), came to be just that – rants."
But that is his game. That is how Mayweather Jr. operates. I see no problem with this method, and eventually, he may get his wish.
But does he really want this fight to take place?
The great Irish poet Oscar Wilde said that "There are two great tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want. The other is getting it."
I'm not sure in the end who is more afraid to fight who in this back and forth battle. They are two of the top fighters in boxing history. While many feel that Pacquiao would be the heavy favorite, I feel as if this would be a closer fight than most think. Although, it is still a fight that Pacquiao would likely win.
