I have followed the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao story from the beginning.
There have been times Mayweather has been clearly the one who has been dragging his feet on the fight. There have been times that Manny Pacquiao has come up with some unusual excuses of why he doesn’t want the fight.
There have been outright LIES on both sides to sway public opinion.
But today there is indisputable evidence that Bob Arum and possible Manny Pacquiao have ZERO interest in stepping into the ring with Floyd Mayweather.
Before I tell you why, just watch the video.
The reason why Bob Arum wants to keep Pacquiao away from Mayweather is pretty clear.
He doesn’t think Pacquiao can win.
Pacquiao star is already starting to fade and a loss to Mayweather would kill the golden goose. Pacquiao makes Arum a ton of money and he would still make money if he lost to Mayweather, but he simply wouldn’t be the draw that he is right now.
If Manny Pacquiao wanted to fight Mayweather on May 5th he could.
It is simple.
The reason why I say it is both Bob Arum and Manny Pacquiao ducking Mayweather is because Pacquiao is the boxer and he makes the decisions.
He doesn’t have to fight Timothy Bradley or Lamont Peterson he can instruct Arum to get a deal with Mayweather done and as of right now he has not done that.
Truth be told Mayweather hasn’t been close to losing a fight for a decade, many people think Pacquiao lost to JMM three times at minimum one time.
There was a time when I thought Mayweather’s legacy would be tarnished by not fighting Pacquiao, but based on current events I am starting to think it will be the other way around.
Man up Pacquiao and take the fight.
