Does anyone remember David Haye vs. Wladimir Klitschko. I mean, besides how terribly boring it was? Does anyone also remember the incredible amount of buildup done by both fighters?
Well, that’s nothing to the amount of hype Pacquiao vs. Mayweather has, and is, generating. Floyd is no stranger to trash talk, and his accusations of Manny’s alleged drug use are overshadowed only by his amazing boxing ability.
Manny is one of the most humble boxers to ever grace the sport, yet even he can’t wait to take on Money.
So let us fast-forward to the future. Imagine paying your $50-plus to purchase a pay-per-view tentatively titled “Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: The Greatest Fight of All Time.” You and your friends are sitting close to the television, waiting through all the insignificant preliminaries to finally get what you paid for.
And then the fight begins, and…it sucks. Nothing is happening. Both fighters are backpedaling, hesitant to engage. The crowd boos. And another proverbial nail is put in the coffin for boxing.
This is what you asked for, right?
