Pacquiao: I Don't Think Mayweather Wants To Fight

by Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - As a few select media members gathered with Manny Pacquiao in the VIP Lounge of the MGM Grand, it was hard to avoid the popular subject of a mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. The WBO welterweight champion had little to say about Mayweather's recent removal from several popular pound-for-pound lists. Mayweather, due to a full year of inactivity, was recently dropped from several recognized pound-for-pound lists.

"I don't want to talk about Floyd Mayweather's issues. I'm the kind of person where I don't want to talk about him behind his back," Pacquiao said. "He always did his best for boxing, and for the name of boxing."

But soon after he was pushed on the topic of "boxing being healthier" when the two biggest stars go head to head in the ring.

"Yes, I believe that [boxing is healthier when that happens], but I don't think he really wants to fight," Pacquiao said.

Pacquiao defends his title against Shane Mosley on Saturday night at the MGM Grand.

Not only is Pacquiao a very carefully manufactured fighter who is feeding on old man, faded champions, and no-hoper's..... he is likely a steroid cheat as well. What a fkn hype-job that kid is..... You'd think with all those steroids…
