Floyd Mayweather Takes The Whole “Manny Pacquiao Fight” Thing Into His Own Hands
Sure, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are still fighting, still winning, still maintaining status as two of the best boxers in the world – perhaps, pound-for-pound, the two best. But they’re still not fighting each other, and that’s the fight everyone wants to see. Especially for those who follow the sport only casually, a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight is in a class all its own as far as interest generated.
Mayweather knows that. And since every other attempt to get these two in the ring with one another has ended in complete failure, he’s seeing if he can’t make it happen on his own:
Response to this idea from the Twittersphere in general was, unsurprisingly, highly receptive – any backlash against Mayweather was related to the fight not having happened already. Of course, that’s not really what matters. What Pacquiao thinks matters. And forgive us for being skeptical that after all the negotiations/posturing of the last couple years, the deal is finally sealed by…a tweet.
But hey, stranger things have happened, we guess. Of course, when we presented Mayweather’s tweet to Mediaite’s Frances Martel, who’s not only a boxing fanatic but has written a good deal about the sport, had only this to say: “LOL yeah like that’s going to happen.” So…thanks for giving us something to talk about, Floyd, we guess.
