If Floyd beats Manny on the other hand, then he would be a real competition for surpassing their greatness. Why would they coax floyd into fighting Manny by saying he is ducking him. if you believe as most fans do, including me, that Floyd is the favorite, I predicted Floyd by UD in a close one, but also see it the other way, why would they want that fight? It doesn't make sense.
It's laughable to believe that considering those guys fought when 15 round bouts at full weight limits for championships were around.
Coax...? Why would Arum, Pacquiao, and Roach lie about agreeing to drug testing and keep raving about how Mayweather's "ducking" yet not try to put the bout together that's been asked for and instead opting for anyone not named Mayweather?
I don't care who you predict because Pacquiao hasn't agreed to testing when that's the lone issue that's prevented this event from happening since day one. Also, it's kind of hard to predict one winner when you "also see it the other way."
