Schaefer: Mayweather Will Never Make it To Pacquiao

By Chris LaBate

Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, doesn't expect a mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao to take place in 2012. Both of the boxers have fights scheduled for the fall. Pacquiao will defend his WBO welterweight crown against Juan Manuel Marquez in a trilogy bout on November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, while Mayweather will challenge WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz on September 18, which also takes place at the MGM Grand.

Despite both fighters having commitments for the fall, the boxing public continues to chant for a mega-fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao. But Schaefer is confident the fight won't happen, and it doesn't have anything to do with money or random Olympic style drug testing. Schaefer has no doubt that Ortiz will defeat Mayweather in September.

"Victor is in an amazing position. He is able to face the best fighter in the world. A fighter who hasn't fought in 16 months [by the time of the fight] and has had a lot of distractions outside of the ring that he's had to deal with. Let's face it, he can't hurt Victor Ortiz, but Victor can hurt him," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com's Luis Sandoval. 

"I don't think the [Mayweather-Pacquiao] fight is going to happen. And I don't think that it's not going to happen because Mayweather doesn't want to do it or Pacquiao doesn't want to do it....or the split or the drug testing. I'll tell you what's going to be the reason on why the fight is not going to happen. The reason is - Victor Ortiz is going to beat Floyd Mayweather."

[QUOTE=Mana$$aMauler;10791958]Catchweights were not started by Manny Pacquiao. Catchweights have been part of boxing even before Pacquiao became known. OSDT was started by Floyd Mayweather. I'm just saying, all boxing needs to do is require OSDT and we have a fight.…

[QUOTE=tatangb45;10791888]Sock it to them, guys! The media, BWAA, Ring Magazine, all the boxing organizations and the "boxing community in general", they don't know nothing about boxing. It's just one big conspiracy to sabotage Floyd. Why can't people see that? Keep…

[QUOTE=Check_hooks;10788415]Schaefer is right that Floyd can't hurt him. If Ortiz gets off first and attacks that deformed rib of Floyds he can win by KO.[/QUOTE] You betting points on that?

Richard Schaefer doesn't really believe that. He's suppose to say that.
