Pacquiao vs. Mayweather; does anyone care? There obviously still remains global interest for Mayweather and Pacquiao to get in the ring. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the window is closing slowly but surely. Personally, I don’t see the fight ever happening and frankly I am getting to where I don’t care. There are enough fighters and match-ups out there not involving these two Parker Brothers that I am tired of hearing about it. For me, they have monopolized the sport and danced around each other far too long.

Mayweather has not fought since May, when he defeated Miguel Cotto in a somewhat competitive fight and he likely won’t fight again until May of 2013. Subsequently, between Clark County jail and requiring Manny Pacquiao to put on his jock strap and wrap his hands the night of the imaginary fight…well, I think you can read between the lines from the Money Team.
I am not pointing fingers though. We might still be talking about this fight happening (or at least someone will) three years from now after Pacquiao Marquez VII takes place. Pacquiao will have replaced Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III as the President of the Philippines by then. No wait; maybe he will be the Philippines version of Billy Graham.
Whatever the case, there will always be a reason these two clowns will avoid getting in the ring with each other.
Granted, Pacquiao is agreeing to meet basically every condition Mayweather requires to make the fight happen, short of agreeing to take a fall. Then again, even that may not be out of the question in Las Vegas. My question for Pacquaio, however, is why not making these comments prior to scheduling a fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez? Exactly. More games from the Parker Brothers.
I am not a basher of either fighter, but I do have a sour taste in my mouth that I want to get rid of when it comes to this fight being mentioned anymore. I remember when Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield (once upon a time) were supposed to fight in their respective primes, but circumstances put that fight off for far too long. Unfortunately, when it did happen, it just did not carry the same meaning, had it taken place when it should have. The difference is they actually wanted to fight each other. It’s unfortunate I can’t say the same for these two.
Both Mayweather and Pacquiao command the biggest fan basesin the sport. However, if the fight does not happen, those fans will still watch boxing and the sport will be just fine, as will my enjoyment for boxing. I am tired of the sideshow, so someone please shut the window. I am tired of smelling B.S.
