Default If Pac avoids a Floyd fight, is it the equivalent of retiring to avoid opposition?

It's hard to see Team Pac avoiding a fight after all the talk of getting Floyd in the ring

But, would it be the equivalent of retiring from the sport and returning after Floyd had suffered a defeat, with the defeated fighter not really warranting a matchup anymore?

But, would it be the equivalent of trash talking, claiming to be the best... then retiring and eventually returning after some likely opponents had been dethroned/defeated?
So, if he wants to fight a later date, is he ducking Floyd? Unless Pac says, "no, I don't wanna fight Floyd at all" then I wouldn't consider it ducking.

If Pac went on to sign for a different fight, avoiding a Floyd matchup... would it be similar to retiring from the sport, then returning after say Floyd had lost to Paul Williams.

Yeah, if Pac signed to fight the Rabbi, that would definitely be ducking. Retiring is probably worse because you're basically saying I'd rather not fight at all than fight you.

So you'd say retiring from the sport, then returning after a likely opponent had lost is the equivalent of completely turning down a fight with that opponent?

Difference being you can't say Floyd retired to avoid competition. He retired because no fights were appealing enough (lucrative enough) to override his need to rest his body and spend some time away from boxing.

I don't think Pacquiao will duck Mayweather anyway, the fight will get made one way or the other.

If so, Isn't that annoying to you as a fan?
That he only cares about money and not facing the best opposition available.
