MAYWEATHER SAYS PACQUIAO HAS TO GET PAST MARQUEZ AND BRADLEY IF HE WANTS A SHOT

Earlier today, undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather made an appearance on ESPN Sportscenter to discuss his new deal with Showtime/CBS and his upcoming May 4 clash with Robert Guerrero. Although the conversation started off on track, it didn't take long to veer off course, and questions about fighting Manny Pacquiao would soon arise. "I don't think the fight really holds that much weight anymore. At one particular time, I mean, I wanted the fight to happen in the past. I wanted to fight Manny Pacquiao; only thing I ask for is just random blood and urine testing," Mayweather replied when asked if he was ever going to fight Pacquiao.

Clearly after Pacquiao's shocking KO loss to Marquez, a mega-fight with Mayweather doesn't have the same mystique that it once had when demand for it was at it's peak. So what would have to happen in order to generate that buzz again for the mega-fight? Well, for starters, Pacquiao has to get a couple of wins under his belt, and it just so happens that Mayweather has suggested who he should get those wins. "First, Manny Pacquiao has to get past Marquez, a guy that I beat with ease. I mean, that was one of my easiest fights, " Mayweather explained. "Manny Pacquiao still has Timothy Bradley problems. He still has Marquez problems. First Manny Pacquiao has to get past those guys, and then he can step into the lion's den with Floyd Mayweather!"
