WHAT DID FLOYD MEAN? WILL HE REALLY FIGHT PACMAN ON MAY 2?


PhilBoxing.com




It was a spur of the moment speech rather than a decision.
You don’t start a negotiation by making demands and setting your own rules. Sincerity is bilateral in any talk. There is no such thing as a unilateral talk unless you’re just talking to yourself.


There are always two sides involved in an agreement and respect is among its vital elements. Hey Floyd, you don’t dictate on the other side if you are sincere to make the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. Your pronouncement yesterday was sorely lacking in substance. You’ve said tingling things that tickled scribes and media, yet you’ve said more which could have meant the exact opposite. Never grab what’s not yours.
“This above all; to thine own self be true.” - Shakespeare
Drama and sincerity don’t mix. Going into a negotiating table with “doubt” and reservation is more a sign of insincerity than pessimism because a truly sincere person knows no insurmountable obstacle regardless of “impossibilities.”
Notwithstanding the arrogance, hustles and elbowing in the talks, the Mega Bout is considered a done deal as far as the people is concerned. Otherwise, beyond boycotting Pac and Floyd’s future shows prior to and outside of Pac vs. Floyd, the people and media will have to resort to universal “protest” and total “news blackout.”

Clear as crystal. Whoever would do anything contrary to what leads to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao should be castoff. They are plagues to the sport. Those who have other “plans” to concoct must be planning to beat their butt, or court disaster. The false apostles that bring up names of other boxers for Pac and Floyd even before they fight each other ought to be disowned by their own. Such crookedness.

What plan B or plan C are you talking about? Or what alternative plans do you propose if all the pieces are falling into place already and it’s just the decisiveness of one or two stiff-necked persons that is the missing ingredient to get the Super Fight going? You don’t change the plan in such a situation. You stand by sanity (not “map”) and break stubbornness.

This is boxing “People Power.”

Will there ever be peace or justice where guile and greed reign supreme? Can anything be possibly and humanly above Truth and soundness of mind? How do you confront a lion that roars and walketh about seeking whom he may devour? And how could it not be that any plan of Mayweather, Pacquiao and their respective cohorts other than the plan to make the Mega Bout happen is a plan to crush their little kingdoms?

If indeed Floyd remains to be foolhardy clucking away from Pacman, despite the “lessons” he should have heeded, wait till he acts to cherry-pick again so that fury and revolt would be solely on him.

The fans did it. With the people’s boycott of the recent fights of the two biggest cash cows in boxing that resulted in tampered and unannounced numbers due to embarrassingly low pay-per-view yields, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Floyd “Money” Mayweather will slug it out in the ring next year. But if not, it will be a “bout to duck” for the two of them versus the whole world at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Dubai or in the Philippines.

To those who talk yet do odd things, talk is over. But to those who do right, we listen. What lies ahead depends on whether or not reason would prevail.

It is imperative that Floyd should not act like a King for he is not. Pacquiao and Bob Arum are from another domain. And the fans are not jerks to be his slaves.

Realize that you, the people and media, are involved in the negotiations.

Be discerning.
