Floyd Mayweather has finally called out Manny Pacquiao for a fight on May 2, 2015, reports ESPN, and fans of a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight are elated that the duo might finally actually meet in the boxing ring.
For years, fans have talked about Floyd Mayweather meeting Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao in the ring, with the Latin Post asking, “Is Floyd Mayweather Afraid to Fight Left-Handed Manny Pacquiao?” as have many others who’ve wondered what reasons were exactly behind the delay of the biggest fight of the 21st century – be it fear from Mayweather, money concerns, or something else.
Pacquiao is a good fighter, even Floyd Mayweather fans will admit, who then turn around and call Floyd the best fighter in the world – especially those with a blind love for Floyd Mayweather and his so-called pretty face – a face that could get cut up good in a big fight against Pacquiao.
Both Floyd Mayweather and Pacquiao are getting old, say boxing followers, and it’s high time the duo gets in the ring and box out their differences in order to determine a winner. Mayweather could likely ask for a rematch clause in his contract if the first Mayweather-Pacquiao fight actually happens and neither Mayweather nor Pacquiao gets knocked out. Therefore, they could stretch out the fan-interest and funding and excitement for another Mayweather-Pacquiao fight soon thereafter.
Mayweather has great timing, claim expert boxing pundits, but this writer wonders about the timing of Floyd calling out Manny finally for a fight that some thought would never happen. No word on the Pacquiao response about the tMayweather-Pacquiao matchup as of this writing, but with so many news reports filling the online space about Mayweather’s interaction with his friend Earl Hayes – who recently committed a murder-suicide in the tragic case involving his wife, Stephanie Moseley, especially since Floyd Mayweather was a FaceTime witness to the deaths, as reported by the Inquisitr – followers of Floyd can’t help but think of this as a way for Mayweather to move on with his life and distract the public with happier news.
If Pacquiao loses another fight, who else would be a cash cow, ask fans. According to the Daily Mail, celebrities like 50 Cent doubt that a Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao fight will ever happen. The rapper feels Mayweather wants to leave the sport of boxing on top, and not with a final loss besmirching the Mayweather record.
