What pisses me off is no one even questioned Arum about this or even did a follow up response, now had Floyd said any thing like that it would be hell. This is out of hand and fans eat this shit up.

I guess I dont get it. I understand that when it comes to Pac and Floyd, for the most part, there are two camps. It seems like anyone who remotely supports Pac gets labeled as a pactard. And whoever likes Pac hates Mayweather and is dying to see him lose. There's rarely middle ground. However, my opinion, when it comes to Manny, it's not like the guy is a scrub. He's earned the right to be called one of the greatest of our time.

Think about it like this... Floyd is the top PPV draw in the game, bar none. But who is behind him? crickets... It's not Ward. It's not a Klitchko, it's not even Hopkins at this point. So to me that makes Manny still very legitimate in the boxing game. Yeah, he wont do as many PPV's as Floyd but other than Floyd there is no one else in the game that will do as many as Manny right now. I mean is there?

That being said, Manny doesnt need to say Floyd's name to stay relevant. I believe that he says his name because he wants to fight him. Floyd doesnt want to fight Manny, and he's got his reasons and has always had them.

If there was a poll for avid sports fans on who you would pick to watch in only one professional boxing match, no red tape, no money questions, no excuses and I'd bet the house that the winning combination would be Floyd vs. Manny. So to me that makes all the tension between the two, their fans and the boxing world very legitimate.

And even though he HAS been the greatest of recent years, Floyd is not going to look so golden when history looks back, if not only in one regard, that's fighting Manny. That shits going to leave a shit stain on his boxing greatness legacy. Yea, that's my opinion. Floyd will always be the GOAT of making money though, and he seems to be good with that so more power to him. Take it all Floyd. I know I've given you tons out of my pocket.

I disagree with a huge chunk of this. Both camps have done and said silly shit to prevent the fight. To say Manny wants the fight and that's why he mentions Floyd is laughable, just like insinuating that Floyd doesn't want the fight is funny. In terms of PPV it's Mayweather, Manny, and Cotto. But in terms of Boxing, nobody in there right mind would put Manny anywhere near Andre or Bernard in terms of ranking...and I've always taken exception to Pacquiao getting fighter of the decade when it should've been Bernard who I will argue anyone on here to tell me why Manny won it over Bernard and even Floyd. We all have opinions but facts are both sides are full of shit and Manny is too, if he wanted to fight him then he would've stepped to his promoter and make it happen. And if Floyd wanted the fight then he would've sucked it up starched the guy already. The fight hadn't happened because of egos

History will look back on both men with tarnish in then somewhat if they don't fight, not just Mayweather. Yeah Floyd is the king of money but Manny's biggest and highest profile wins make him the king of selective matchmaking and catch weights. It's a two way street that some of yall are conveniently forgetting
