Pacquiao on Mayweather: He is Worried About His Record

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) wants to fight his division rival, WBC/WBA champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs), in 2015. After years of trying to make a deal, the two sides are not even close to an agreement. Their discussions have not even come close to a serious level since 2010.

Pacquiao is willing to let Mayweather get the bigger share of the money and there is finally no issue regarding Mayweather's demand for Olympic style random drug testing.

What is hold up the fight? Pacquiao voiced his personal opinion on the subject.

"Well, I think he is worried about his record. He talks about his zero losses. The zero that means so much to him means nothing when measured against who he fought," Pacquiao told scribe Jerry Izenberg of The Star Ledger. "You talk pound-for-pound best, or undefeated champion. If you don’t defend against the best, none of that means anything."

"[He is] not [scared] of fighting, but perhaps of what one night could do to his zero of losses. I think I finally understand him:…what he says,…how he acts,…and I don’t like it. But what l learned and heard from him, well, I realize why he is like that. I understand sometimes when the people are not educated they just talk to talk. He sets a very bad example."

Pacquiao returns on November 22nd in a title defense against Chris Algieri from The Venetian in Macau, China. Mayweather faces Marcos Maidana in a rematch on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

[QUOTE=Travdog]No, The Castillo fight was a draw to me. I had Mayweather winning the first five rounds and also I think it was the 9th or 10th round. 6-6. I did however felt that Castillo was the better man that night. The rounds he won were more impressive. The Maidana fight was not close. Th...
