    I agree.

    It would be nice to hear Manny say " Bob shut the f%ck up and make a deal to fight Mayweather. You are making me look guilty even though I never tested positive for ANYTHING because you keep making up excuses for me and make me and freddy go back on our word about testing"

    Isn't this ducking? Or, is it good business because its high risk no reward. I think Pac beats Berto easy. Apparently, bob doesn't. Is Bob scared? Bob's answer wasn't about win or lose or respect or Berto being an upstanding citizen who deserves a shot it was about money generated. iS paC SCARED OF bERTO?

    Please all Pac fans please make sure you remember this the next time you go on a thread with the "Floyd is ducking" OR ANY OF THE OTHER BULL**** YOU POST.

    Manny is just getting to where floyd has been for over 2 years. As such, he is operating the same way. When Pac fans become boxing fans they will understand this.

    Peace!!

    I think Bobby-Boy knows that Pac is gonna retire soon and wants to milk as much $ as he can until then.

    Personally, i think a Berto/Pac fight would be pretty good at least for awhile anyway and it would be awesome for either man to unify titles...but i got Pac TKO10 Berto

    I don't care for either, however, If i had to choose I'd be slightly more interesting in Marg. He may be too slow but he has alot of size. Berto is nowhere near as durable as Marg IMO nor does he have his work rate. Both guys will play into Pac's style for various reasons but I can see a FOTY style slugfest with Marg and a mid to early KO vs Berto.

    Bet lets get real, nobody really wants to see either of these fights. We all want Pac fight PBF/Mosley/JMM (140 or below)/Bradley.
    dude...the 2nd paragraph wasnt meant for u...thats why its a separate paragraph. eng 101, man. nyways as far as margs, sure theres money there. but according to many on this forums, the money doesnt matter, its the principle. i was tryin to make a point, i wasnt really attacking you.

    relax, i dnt blame pac for none of this, i blame arum. but if pac keeps on letting arum run him to the bank, ill lose respect for the dude.

For all we know, we might see Pac-Margarito 5, Pac-Cotto 4, Pac-Clottey 2, Pac-Arce 3.
    Equinox:

    Please explain this to the Pac fans. Arum is going to match Manny up the same way floyd is going to pick his fights. Manny picks "bigger" "tougher" guys like clottey and cotto because he has a speed advantage and they don't move a lot. Floyd fights "bigger" punchers because they tend to throw punches easily countered. Too Bad b!tch a$$ bob doesn't do the same with Kelly Pavlik or Cotto.

    Wait a minute I know why THEY ARE NOT BIG EARNERS!!!!

    but i don't ever heard pac mention something like the bolded against any possible future opponent.

    most likely pac would have said something like this.

    pac: i will fight anybody that my promoter (arum) will put infront of me initaym, iniwer.

    and floyd,

    pbf: im only fighting for money. he [name of boxer] aint ppv fighter. im the cash cow and i ain't fighting somebody for a slave's wage.

    See the difference?
    yeah one guy says he won't fight because it doesn't meet his objective- making money. The other guy puts it on his promoter whose job is-making money. Therfore, the promoter says we wont take the fight. Its not what is said or the way it is said. IT IS THE END RESULT THAT MATTERS!

    Besides, don't you have more respect for a man who answers a question honestly than a man who looks to another man to answer for him?

    i dnt get how u can say floyd is trying to control pac by making him take a drung test, when u have arum controlling his career like a hawk. its sad really...

    The only fight that makes sense is the winner of Floyd and Shane...

    Berto needs to rematch Collazo already before he tries to step to the big boys. And Pac is looking at Margarito or the Shane-Floyd winner. Most likely a Floyd fight never happens.

    Pac would beat Berto, but that reason Arum gave doesn't work for me. They fought Josh Clottey on PPV and he doesn't even own a title
