Mayweather and Pacquiao: Chicken Mayweather Needs to Shut Up or Fight

This article is going to be short and not so sweet. Today I got a blast of boxing e-mails touting information on Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao and like a chump, I bit.

I rarely bother reading anything about the little Chickenboy these days because it's always the same. Narcissistic tweets bleating about how great he he is, and how if he fought anybody he'd win, etc.

Two problems, Floyd.

First of all, you never say anything new or interesting. Which makes you a crushing bore.

Second, real fighters do their talking in the ring, and you don't fight these days.

From now on there should be a moratorium on all articles about Floyd "Chickenboy" Mayweather, Jr. 

Not because he's not a terrific fighter. Because he's not newsworthy.

Seriously, the boxing press needs to do exactly what our teacher told us to do when confronted by a pest in elementary school. Just ignore him.

That's what they do in other sports. If someone quits the game, the media stops covering them.

Why do you think people like MJ often find it hard to quit? And MJ still gets to do Hanes ads.

So please, boxing people.

Don't waste my time with Chickenboy nonsense.

If you want to talk Showtime's semi-terrific Super Six semi-finals, I'm down. If you want to yak about Khan vs. Bradley, I'm there.

Heck, I'll even read about Evander Holyfield's next bout.

Just don't send me anything about Chickenboy Floyd Mayweather.

Because unless he signs a contract to get in the ring, he's completely irrelevant. And I'm just gonna hit delete. 

Where can I comment?
