SILENT PROTEST OVER FLOYD MAYWEATHER, JR.
By Reni M. Valenzuela: All roads lead to Floyd Mayweather, Jr., indeed, as he proudly claims – to send him a serious message.
Until Mayweather stops dodging Manny Pacquiao, drops his boundless arrogant excuses and heeds the insistent popular clamor for him to fight Pacman, no boxing fan in his right mind would be delighted to watch any Mayweather bout whoever his opponent may be. And nothing can be better for the sport of boxing.
It is reported that tickets are selling slow for the September 17 welterweight contest between Mayweather and Victor Ortiz (compared to previous Mayweather fights) just as it has been foreseen that only Floyd’s fanatical “legions” of fans and few innocent ones will watch the show.
The air is thick and heavy these days, but the silent protest over the “good” boy of boxing gets even thicker and heavier. And if the situation persists, expect boxing, amid thunderous showers and storms, to resurrect sooner than anyone can think or imagine. Do yourself a favor.
On fight night, sweet dreams.
