It seems living the Vegas lifestyle of the rich and famous has really made Floyd lose his sense of reality. Whether this latest incident is heresay or truth not withstanding, Floyd has gone haywire it seems from all the cash and fame, to a lesser degree than Tyson did. But still similar. Be that as it may, here's how I feel. He has this sense of entitlement going on behaving as if the world owes him something.
I don't think Mayweather is scared shitless of Pacquiao....... But I do think he has doubts about beating him. And I do believe that if Floyd is scared of something, its LOSING... That 0 is the only thing he has. People buy his fights because they wanna see him get his ass whipped plain and simple. Ever since the 1st fight with Castillo, Floyd has been very careful in picking his competition. He could have fought the likes of Kostay Tszyu(Before he went on that long layoff), Paul Williams, Miguel Cotto, Josh Clottey, Antonio Margarito, Kermit Cintron, Andre Berto, Sergio Martinez, and yes, Manny Pacquiao. The opportunity to face real fighters in their primes has been there for Floyd for a long time now and he has flat out REFUSED to do so.
Why????.... Because deep down, I do believe beyond the boasting and arrogance he is very insecure. He won't take a fight that he believes there's a chance he could lose. And the sad thing here is that Floyd really does have teh ability to beat all those guys I listed. But he wont even ENTERTAIN the idea of getting in the ring with them. And thats not only hurt his own legacy, but it hurts boxing in general because one of the complaints I always here is that the top guys are not fighting each other, and Floyd is a prime example of this.
I hear alot of people complain about Pacquiao's catch weights and all that stuff. And I won't lie, I didn't dig it in the Cotto fight(Not that it would have made a difference in the outcome), and I sure as hell didn't like it for the Margarito fight(But it wasn't a factor being that Margs outweight him by 17 pounds on fight night).
So even with all that stuff, I mean look at Manny's resume and compare it to Floyd's..... Beyond 135, Floyd's resume is almost laughable. Say what you want about Pacquiao, but I don't think he has any real apprehensions about getting into the ring with anyone. At least he has not shown any. And he has not tried anything pathetic like asking for drug tests that have never before been used in boxing to try and weasel his way out of fighting anyone. Now I'm not saying here that Manny is the greatest or anything. But IMO he FULLY DESERVES to be called P4P number 1 today. And if he was to try something really crazy and fight a Sergio Martinez and manage to beat him, then we would have to reconsider his place in history all together now.
Does anybody here see Floyd ever considering a fight with a Sergio Martinez???.....
Maybe before I would have given Floyd the benefit of the doubt but after he turned down over 40 million to face Pacquiao this year and gave a lame explanation as to why he did it("Im not thinking about boxing right now")
I don't even think he would mention Martinez's name.
I'll say it again and I won't stop until I physically see Mayweather and Pacquiao in the ring, the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight will NOT happen. And we all know who doesn't want it to happen.
