IS MAYWEATHER NOW READY TO FACE PACQUIAO?


PhilBoxing.com




The coming year is ideal for the fight to happen, should it ever get to be made. If not 2014, then count everything nice hereunder to be profound poetry or plain satire.

Don’t get him wrong. The American top dog is ready to face his biggest challenge anytime soon though he seems to be currently using the PPV numbers comparison as an excuse to avoid a persistent public outcry for him to face the Filipino icon.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has evolved into a braver man who now utters oddities not to duck Manny Pacquiao. His latest “Pacquiao is not on my level” is meant merely to gain maximum leverage for future “Mayweather-Pacquiao” negotiations, and for money purposes. He guarantees that the long-awaited bout has nothing to do with running away from the eight-division champion anymore. Floyd swears that at the end of the day, all boil down to boxing as business or business as boxing.

To help ease complexities surrounding the issues involved, it is wise that both camps shun hubris and refrain from mentioning any other names as possible opponents for their respective wards if they cannot mention just the names Pacquiao and Mayweather; and if they’re serious in making the fight happen. Pardon the pundits whose opinions achieve nothing but build obstructions to the mega bout.

The fight is supposed to be between Pacquiao and Mayweather. But why the people around them are the ones on war with each other for the past four years while the two confused boxers have yet to come to terms to unleash their salvo? Thus it is incumbent for the pound-for-pound superstars to personally initiate the talk and it is up to Pacquiao to grab the phone if Mayweather is too proud to do it. Floyd wears Reebok brand, hence Pacman has to prove his own: JUST DO IT.

Money May spoke from his inner recesses when for the first time he categorically stated on video, “I am not afraid of Pacquiao.” Believe him when he said that. Mayweather has perhaps totally overcome his dread of Pacquiao, for he has to, and because no fight can bring so much money for Money but Manny. Besides, it’s the sole, single option left for him. Who or what else but Mayweather’s subdued scare of Pacquiao can bring out the best in Floyd (inside the ring)? And what bane but Mayweather’s live scare of Pacquiao can bring out the worst in Floyd (outside the ring)?

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Would you allow your man’s sterling record to go down the drain on account of just one important fight he is not willing to make? Won’t you do him the greatest favour of his life as a boxer, to let him be complete and declared as among the “all time bests” in the sport by holding ground with him against tendencies to surrender to a dare? Can’t you stir up his heart and soul enough to keep him awake at night or put him in deep slumbers to visualize “Pacquiao in May 2014” everytime?

Will you do something about his plight if you truly care?
Or, would you rather have your treasured prop be eternally hated and lampooned whose memory exudes an offending “aroma” at the mention of his name than have him stand as a model and inspiration for your children and your children’s children to emulate and follow? Can you endure the weight of him being possibly labeled and known to the coming generations as history’s worst boxing “champion” should he fail to heed his new found courage by dodging Pacman for no reason? And at a time when the fight with his arch-rival makes sense and matters?
Why deprive the outside world of seeing your toddler become a full grown warrior? For what cause do you prevent him from coming out of his cocoon? What speck or mote blocks you from discovering the light, or from sharing the light to your champ? When will you be a true friend to him?

The fight gets closer to becoming a reality.

Gear up, or dream on.
