"Uh, uh, hmm, uhh, uhh, uhh, it depends on my promoter, Bob Arum!"

Here's a great video that pretty much sums it up. Very frustrating.

Well even Arum....Arum is Pacquiao's promoter, and I would think he would like to give his fighter all the advantages to win fights, and over his arc-rival Mayweather especially.

It takes two to tango. Paq can't force a girl for a dance if she doesn't want to.

yeah you're right that grueling 2 month stint in county jail shortly after an 8 week camp is going to ruin him physically. I shudder at the thought of his mental state Manny better jump on it, or Canelo might.

Floyd knows the time is also now, others would get the credit for beating pac decisively anytime soon, especially marquez and he'll be remembered by most as someone who duck pac in his prime and accuse him for some peds. i wont remember him that way, but many will.. so if he wants to clean everything now the time is now, it is safe.

Makes sense for both. Big payday for Manny and a needed tune-up for Floyd coming out of the bing.

Lmao at Pac being a "tune up". Even a shell of his former self Pac would pose the biggest threat that Floyd has faced in recent memory. I mean damn, even a shot Pac was able to solidly beat an undefeated and game Timothy Bradley. Dude doesn't need money. He's worth like 85 mil. He would be there to win. I still have Floyd by decision, but it wouldn't be easy.

Although Floyd might have been affected by jail, I wouldn't compare it to Tyson and Ali who were out of commission for years.

But I see your point. If there's a "low" point to go in on Floyd, I guess it would be now. But Floyd would be smart enough to make sure he gets enough time to get back in peak condition. So it might not matter.

I agree with most posts here about the risks of Manny's next fight, but also how Manny would be Floyd's biggest challenge.

Still wish this fight happened in '09/'10...

I think the vast majority of boxing heads agree with this statement.

The longer the standoff goes, the more it favors Floyd.

At this point, it ain't gonna' happen.

That ship has sailed.
