Pac And Floyd Versus Love For The Sport (Part VI)

Haven’t you caught the trick yet?

What is news about Arum saying “Mayweather vs. Pacquiao” is possible in 2015 when he swears similar stuff year after year but cooks a different bout every time? Patronize the Algieri and Maidana fights versus the cash cows and you make it literally impossible for the sport and yourself to produce the Mega Bout and cure boxing.

Revival of Boxing – What media can do (Part V)

While you stumble and fall, what makes others stand? Boxing is at a critical crossroad, yet again. But would you stay ill rather than get healed?

Media, Pac-Floyd And The Healing Of Boxing (Part II)

Here’s the score.

Arum Beats Pacquiao As Pac Routs Floyd Without A Punch

People have to establish whether Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a sportsman or a mere businessman in the Sweet Science. This we need to do in light of boxing as, first and foremost, a sport before it is business. Though, for Bob it’s undoubtedly pure business.

PPV scenario for Pac and Floyd if ‘Super Fight’ won’t happen

Why a fifth bout between Pacquiao and Marquez is all of a sudden being raised as though it needs to happen tomorrow? What does Dinamita’s win yesterday mean to boxing? Why any fights that will be lined up for Pac and Floyd at this time versus different foes, however appealing they may seem, would be unwise and PPV wrecks unless they face each other first?
