Floyd Mayweather Continues To Toy The Boxing World

It’s final, on May 3 at the MGM Grand or Barclay’s Center, square pegs in a round hole will stage a fight that the sport doesn’t warrant and the fans don’t crave, rather the people detest in light of the “Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.”

By picking Marcos Maidana over another undeserving boxer Amir Khan in a frolic of dolts, Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues to toy the boxing world. And certain jerks are just too happy to be toyed around and be used as conduit clowns to trip the gullible all over the planet, yet again.

Canelo’s perfect valentine and his date with Alfredo on March 8

Love is magical such that it makes living beautiful like no other. Or love is the place to start life all over again. But contrary to what most people think of love, it is not always about being near or physically intimate with the one you love. “Got to believe in magic,” says the songwriter/crooner Pomeranz.

In the case of Canelo Alvarez and Alfredo Angulo, love means having to beat each other on the forthcoming “Toe-To-Toe” Valentine’s Day which is set on March 8 for them. And it means a lot more than winning for Alvarez; it ought to be a day for him to start afresh in his boxing career for he is coming off his only but humiliating loss against the great dud Floyd Mayweather Jr. last September 14.

About 92% of boxing fans would not spend money to watch the “Pacquiao-Bradley II” and “Mayweather-Maidana/Khan” out of PROTEST against square pegs for failing to make the long-awaited bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

Rush to fight Pacquiao, Floyd!

Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao - Boxing cannot afford to miss the mark at this critical moment. The call is to side with truth and stand in the gap. It’s time for every sports lover to take steps unhesitatingly for the good of all and the Sweet Science.

Boxing cannot afford to miss the mark at this critical moment. The call is to side with truth and stand in the gap. It’s time for every sports lover to take steps unhesitatingly for the good of all and the Sweet Science.

Reason is deaf to “reasoning” that insults intelligence. Halt dim “defenses” being proffered in media these days to conceal the light by hacks or by knocks. Debunk pretenses, for who can defend the defenseless? No moron, not even Gandhi or Hitler.

But why rush to officially announce the “Pacquiao-Bradley” rematch as reported? Are wily Bob and devious Koncz afraid that they would not earn the usual bucks from their cash cow in the proposed “Charity Fight”? They say the offer is serious but their actions tell it’s not. Why panic?

What if Floyd accepts or rejects Manny’s dare for a “charity fight”

Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao - Possible scenarios are what they are, possibilities.  But in the case of the historic “Fight for Charity” dare between two biggest names in boxing, there are only certainties. If and when Floyd Mayweather accepts the challenge to fight Manny Pacquiao for charity, the fight would surely be greater than great as it has been anticipated for years.  But if and when Mayweather wouldn’t agree, at least he and his devotees along with the cynics would know that Manny is not desperate to tangle with Money in the ring for money reason; and that dud Mayweather would be proven a big joke once again.

However, should Mayweather opt to ignore the call and keep mum about Pacman’s dare, the people are not dumb and dump to take it as gallantry or anything positive to heal the sport or push boxing forward.

Pac Dares Floyd: “Let’s Fight For Charity”

Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao - Things have been clear to the clear minded, but if the latest word from Manny Pacquiao won’t untangle “clutters” in the minds of the “wise” and “confused,” what else can?

Things have been clear to the clear minded, but if the latest word from Manny Pacquiao won’t untangle “clutters” in the minds of the “wise” and “confused,” what else can?

Pacquiao has long assured he is ready and willing to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. anytime, anywhere. And just hours ago he told the Manila based Philippine Daily Inquirer: “I’m not desperate to fight Floyd just for the sake of money… I’m not the one seeking this fight rather it’s the boxing fans all over the world.”

Absolutely.

The Filipino icon stressed in the same phone conversation with Inquirer: “I am ready to submit myself to any kind of stringent drug testing. Above all, I challenge Mayweather to include in our fight contract that both of us will not receive any single cent out of the fight. We will donate all the proceeds – guaranteed prize, gate receipts, pay-per-view and endorsements – to charities around the world.”

Why Floyd should retire if he won’t fight Pacquiao this year

Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao - Some pundits still don’t get it. The fight is a big deal for the fans not just because it interests them but because the fans want truth and they are resolved to prevent “stars” and “bigwigs” from further tricking them and the sport. If you think otherwise, then yours is a hopeless case perhaps.

No person ever solves a problem by looking only at his own concern. Even a hermit in a secluded island can’t do that.

It’s not that the fans are dying to see the mega bout happen for their consumption and pleasure. They want to work out a solution to the controversies, silliness, rottenness and idiocy in the sport surrounding Mayweather and Pacquiao. And to determine who between the two rivals is the better boxer to end endless debates. Any justification to negate such logic boils down to jerk musing, if not blind fanaticism.
