Floyd Mayweather junior is a bigger issue to Manny Pacquiao, than the controversies with Marquez
By Babatis Banda – It is an obvious fact that Floyd Mayweather junior is a bigger issue to be settled, than the slim wins Manny has had with Marquez. Simple logic would demand that the next fight for Manny should be against Floyd Mayweather junior, than go for a fourth attempt at Marquez. Arum by choosing to go and try to settle the issue for the fourth time, putting aside the possibilities of putting Manny with Floyd is a farce, and pure injustice to the fans. It is a clear escape route to avoid the fight.
While Arum has a whole basket-full of issues to grind with Floyd, he should never be let off the hook by manipulating situations. If Manny really feels aggrieved by Marquez’s claims that he won against him on the 12th of November, he should deal with him after whooping Floyd. We want Manny to face Floyd and we want a conclusive result of who is the top P4P fighter.
Ironically, Manny’s fans seem comfortable with the idea of avoiding Floyd. Nobody is talking about Floyd being in hiding or scared anymore. Floyd is ready and waiting. We all know that Manny versus Marquez would bring in a decent PPV, but we also know that it would never be anywhere near the Floyd versus Manny bout. So, logically speaking, the biggest grudge and the biggest money is with Floyd Mayweather and if there is anything that needs to be settled urgently, it is this controversy.
I am sorry to say, Arum will certainly choose the easier way out and go after Marquez for the fourth time. If Manny is beaten by Marquez, it kills the whole Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao and what will remain are the senseless arguments and the foolish court cases. If the bout will be another controversial one, we will see a fifth re-march for as long as Floyd is still around.
The once brave and outspoken Manny’s fans, stand out and compel your team to make things happen, do not tuck-in your tails and get comfort from the ensuing Arum’s arrogance.
