Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. scared of The Pacman?
Manny Pacquiao thinks a money-spinning showdown with Floyd Mayweather won’t happen because Pretty Boy doesn’t want to fight him.
Any hopes of the pair ever meeting in the ring appeared to have disappeared completely when Mayweather announced his retirement.
However the American returned to the sport this year and recorded a unanimous points win over Juan Manuel Marquez in September.
Despite Mayweather’s impressive comeback, Pacquiao insists boxing fans shouldn’t get too excited about the chances of the pair ever going toe-to-toe.
“I don’t think it’s going to happen,” he said. “I’m sure he doesn’t want to fight.
“Boxing for him is like a business. He doesn’t care about the people around him watching. He doesn’t care if the fight is boring, as long as the fight is finished and he gets (plenty of) money… I want people to be happy.
“You have a big responsibility as a boxer.”
Before he can even contemplate taking on Mayweather, Pacquiao must first get past Miguel Angel Cotto in Las Vegas.
The man from the Philippines, 30, has had his training schedule hampered by a late arrival into America – hardly ideal preparations ahead of the welterweight clash on November 14.
“I consider this one of the hardest fights in my boxing career,” he added on his next fight.
Cotto has lost just once, to Antonio Margarito, in his 34-fight career and claimed the vacant WBO welterweight title by stopping Britain’s Michael Jennings back in February.
I honestly think you are going to see Cotto finished when these two fight, I have no idea how Cotto got this fight but Cotto cannot stand in the way of Pacman’s Fury. Hopefully Mayweather will have the balls to get his American backside in the ring.
