It's the only way I can see Floyd n Pac milking one more non-superfight out of the public without the public boycotting both of them.
" Floyd would have went to jail, and skipped May 5th altogether if that was the case. If Manny doesn't want to fight in May, Floyd can still fight Canelo, do his time, put on 5 pounds in jail, and fight Martinez in Dec for the MW strap. He will still make big money with a chance to be a lineal MW champ, and might even be considered fighter of the year for the 3rd time, in 3 different decades. Something no other fighter in history would have accomplished."
