Those two are still top dogs, but it can be argued they've
each lost a step since 2010. They've aged, and there's the
damage sustained from fighting other boxers since.
Worst is the insult to the fans' collective intelligence: one
issue after another crops up to delay this crap. Pac wants
or doesn't want this. Floyd wants or doesn't want that...
It's worse than putting up with a tease
They never could have met in their absolute prime. People are really tripping if they though Floyd was prime in 2009-2010 at the beginning of his comeback. Floyd's last fight where I'd say he was for sure 100% prime was Hatton. He lost some of legs after his first layoff, but since 2009-2010 he looks like the same fighter, same speed, same ability.
If it doesn't happen in 2013, who knows what they'll be like in 2014. but if Pacquiao wins another close fight against Marquez or beats him 100% handily this time, it's still a huge fight in 2013.
I'm just saying they are still two of the best fighters in the world.
