Mayweather would beat Pac-Man one way or the other.

I think the last Mayweather fight I paid for was against ODLH, I've been streaming the rest of them. I'd pay for his fights if he's pitted up against someone that would be a good challenge for him. Ortiz is a little slow and his defense is horrid, Mayweather's accuracy and counter punching would've ate him up all night.

Ortiz really needs to develop his jab... he needs it.

Mayweather's jabs would frustrate the shit out of Pacquiao. If Mayweather keeps his distance from him, he'll have the fight in the bag.

What I think Pac should do is to get inside, hurt the body and stay close. A jab + left straight from a fast south paw would be dangerous for Mayweather's shoulder roll defense, I'd use that to close the distance and set up for combinations.

Awesome.

I hate that they try to masquerade fighting as anything but what it is, violent, and a fight.

Cheap shots arent cool, but hey, it is what it is.

Boxing is a sport, their are rules. Ortiz is clearly a dumbass, Mayweather is clearly a punk.

Furthermore,

Both Pac & Mayfeather are legends in their own right. But Pac is a man whereas Gayweather is a sort of boy-man. He can only box cute for so long before Pac-man would eventually take him down.

Legendary man without knock-out ability beats legendary boy-man who goes for style points 10 times out of 10.

I tried watching that video of the guy getting a refund on the fight but I couldn't get past the 1:20 mark because his gf/wife starts chewing like a fucking cow.

Boxing needs to do fans a favor and absorb into MMA. This is just getting stupid now

I enjoy MMA more than boxing but boxing on a international level and even in the North American market is still larger then MMA. MMA still has about a decade or two to go until it reaches the level of boxing. There's a reason why Mayweather and Pacman make 20mil+ for a single fight each.

here we go

Mayweather Wants Pacquiao Fight on May 5th, 2012 in Vegas | ProBoxing-Fans.com

Quote:
Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Closer to Happening?

Floyd Mayweather and his team are making their intentions public and direct. They want a fight with Manny Pacquiao, and they want it for May 5th, 2012. The fight would take place in Las Vegas, most likely at the MGM Grand. All of this comes out according to a report from Dan Rafael on ESPN, who quoted Leonard Ellerbe and Richard Schaefer for the story. So is Pacquiao vs. Mayweather really in our future, after years of waiting and anticipation?

Credit: Will Hart - HBO

This report comes at an interesting time, because it was just days ago that Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told the world that Mayweather vs. Pacquiao would never happen. (He also went on a hypocritical rant about sportsmanship, a slap to the face of sports fans everywhere with a drop of intelligence, as he promotes Manos de Plaster Antonio Margarito).

Therefore, this could be some well-timed publicity of sorts for Team Mayweather, telling the world not to believe Arum, and that this is what we really think, and what we really want to do. Or it can be a simple and bold-faced statement of intent. By doing so, it puts the pressure back on Arum and Pacquiao to get the deal done.

Here are some choice words from Ellerbe from the ESPN.com article:

"We're looking to make the biggest fight possible and everyone knows what that fight is, the little fella."

"Floyd made it very clear that he wants to give the fans the biggest fights that are out there. He wants to stay active. We're going to do everything in our power to make the biggest fight out there for the fans and we all know what the fight is."

"We had a discussion, Floyd, me and Al. Floyd made it very clear to us what he wanted to do. He told us he is looking to make the biggest fight that is out there and to make it in May."

Of course, there are plenty of obstacles still to overcome before we get to see Mayweather and Pacquiao settle their differences in the squared circle. Pacquiao has to defeat Juan Manuel Marquez in their rubber match. Mayweather has to avert jail time from his impending trials. And perhaps most daunting of all, Team Mayweather and Team Pacquiao have to come to terms on the fight. Everything from the money split, to the fine print of the drug testing to smaller issues such as the gloves used and more all have to be ironed out.

Nonetheless, this is an encouraging piece of news, and boxing fans have to cross their fingers that all of the above takes place, and we get to see Pacquiao vs. Mayweather next May. We deserve it, and at this point, both fighters need it.
