Pacquiao is not headed to the rice fields.
But after he fights Rios he’ll spend a lot of time in the Phillipines helping out the millions of disaster victims. He’s got to be pretty sad about it because a lot of people he knew personally were killed. I knew just a few people who were killed in Hurricane Katrina and it was a real downer. That wasn’t nearly as bad as this.
Pacquiao has to pull it together and keep it together. I knew a guy whose very close brother committed suicide after killing his wife, 3 days before an important fight. His brother killed his wife and turned the gun on himself. He had to go through with the fight. He couldn’t sleep for 2 nights but finally pulled himself together and won the fight.
Life isn’t easy, and for a boxer that can even be more true.Posted November 12, 2013 12:52 am

I’m more of a Mayweather fan than a Paquiao one, but there’s no doubt in my mind that a prime Paquiao would’ve emerged victorious if they had fought each other. Think he would’ve stopped him too. Big respect to both of them though. They’re both major talents.Posted November 11, 2013 4:44 am
the way it has always been is the champion dictates the purse & most things. That is accepted, but team pac dont accept that. They wanted a 50/50 split. When mayweather agreed to a 50/50 split pac wouldnt take rbt to fight night. Now pac has lost his title & was ko’d in his last fight makes his purse even lower. I would be surprised if floyd ( if he ever offered him a fight now ) offered $10,000,000. If pac gets offered that he will be lucky. But he still wont win the fight. Now if mayweather was really really clever he could offer pac a winner take all for both the ppv & the purse, that would be something & would pac accept, i doubt it.Posted November 11, 2013 4:11 am

“pesticides approved to be used on “Organic crops” such as copper sulphate and rotenone are WORSE than synthetics from a toxicology point of view.”
Pesticides are not allowed on strictly organic produce, or shouldn’t be. The way they fight pests has to be through natural predators of the pests. This is another way corporations like ADM have of damaging the organic farming industry. Trying to delute it by lowering legal standards for organic crops so they can start competing farms and call them organic.Posted November 10, 2013 4:05 am
Hamster claims, “Stanford did a similar analysis with similar results”
LMFAO… Show it to me the “analysis” because it wasn’t thorough.
Pesticides are the only toxic substances released intentionally into our environment to kill living things. This includes substances that kill weeds (herbicides), insects (insecticides), fungus (fungicides), rodents (rodenticides), and others.
The use of toxic pesticides to manage pest problems has become such a common practice in advanced countries, that it has caused a much higher incidence of cancer than in undeveloped countries. One third of Americans get cancer.
Pesticides are used almost everywhere — not only in agricultural fields, but also in homes, parks, schools, buildings, forests, and roads. It is difficult to find somewhere where pesticides aren’t used — from the can of bug spray under the kitchen sink to airplanes crop dusting acres of farmland, our country is filled with pesticides. Pesticides are found in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink.
Forty years after Rachel Carson drew attention to the health and environmental impacts of DDT, which is now banned, use of equally hazardous pesticides has only increased. All the time there is more evidence surfacing that human exposure to pesticides is linked to health problems.
In May 2010, scientists from the University of Montreal and Harvard University released a study that found that exposure to pesticide residues on vegetables and fruit doubles a child’s risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a condition that can cause inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity in children.
Pesticides are used in our schools, parks, and public lands. Pesticides are sprayed on agricultural fields and wood lots. Pesticides are found in our air, our food, our soil, our water, and even in human breast milk.
Any study that claims pesticides are harmless isn’t fact based, and more than likely is funded by partisan special interests. And yes, corporate interests do fund university research of a partisan nature. Everybody is looking for money, and many researchers can be bought.
A lot of partisan research tries to discount the dangers of industrial waste, pollution from power plants, exposure of workers or residents to fumes, chemicals, and particulates, the impact of human activity on climate change, and the impact of pesticides, herbicides, hormones, and other additives in food products on human health.Posted November 10, 2013 3:36 am
Pacman has the style to whup Floyd. And thats why he refused the mutually applied tests and asked his promiter to build a new stadiumPosted November 10, 2013 1:39 am
Now you are making no sense TARK.
First you dismiss the studies for being corporate funded.
Stanford did a similar analysis with similar results – don`t know if you consider IV league to be shills?
So basically noone can do ANY study that you will take note of.
And you are the one on here the other day talking about scientific technique in boxing, and about being open minded.
Yet you are basically saying that unless the study finds the answer you believe it is wrong.
In any case this was a government funded review of previously conducted research – most of which was performed by the organic industry themselves. MOst cannot even make the meta-analysis because their design is utter trash. It`s oly the ones confirmed to be of a certain design quality that would be considered in order to eliminates the biases you fear.
Pesticides and herbicides at certain levels do hurt people – yes – that is why there are maximum limits set, which are several magnitudes below that threshold.
There`s actually an argument that via hormesis very low levels of a number of toxins are actually GOOD for you – but there certainly isn`t consensus around that.
I`m not even arguing against people buying organic food per se. An organic carrot might have a higher level of x,y,z in it, but the reason would be the genetics of the breed and where it is grown.

Both Manny and Floyd are guilty of it so shut up already.

Manny has shown he is willing to get in the ring with anyone at any weight. Right from Barrera thru to Cotto and Margarito. He even fought his nightmare opponent JMM FOUR times! The man has balls. Floyd is great too but clearly picks his opponents more carefully. …. Maybe this is why Manny Pacquiao was voted Fighter of the Decade 2000-2009 and Floyd wasn’t.Posted November 9, 2013 7:07 pm

Hamster.., I don’t care about the “Food standards agency in the UK.”
Government agencies are riddled with corrupt people who are put in place to help the very industries they oversee… It’s the fox guarding the hen house.
It’s been proven by many studies that pesticides, herbicides, hormones, and food additives harm consumers—but that is information that Big Ag fights tooth and nail to suppress.. They put millions of dollars to use to that end.. A lot of that money goes into politics so laws and regulations can be shaped by their industry lap dogs. It took many years to force the tobacco industry to put health warnings on cigarettes—and decades more years to for them to concede that nicotine is addictive.Posted November 9, 2013 6:44 pm

TARK – you didn`t even bother looking at the link – you just dismissed it out of hand. That is the Food standards agency in the UK. It is a government body, government funded – not by the chemical industry.
It came about because Organic producers put out adverts saying their food was better for you, and the goverment wanted to determine if that constituted false advertising – and when they checked it did and organic producers were told to stop making that claim.
In fact it is the organic industry which just as often runs very poorly designed trials riddled with biases seeking profitable results for themselves. That`s why we have peer-review, and meta-analysis.Posted November 9, 2013 5:22 pm
Its sad but there both heading in diff directions…..In ny opinion Mayweather vs Khan is pretty much a tune up 4 Floyd…..easy win and easy cash.

I don’t give a damn what chemical industry supported scientists say about pesticides, herbicides, hormones, and various food additives, having no effect on your health—or on our environment… They’re no different than Big Oil funded studies that “prove” global warming and climate change are not caused by human activity.

I don’t believe PED’s help the cheater in the long run. In the long run steroids are overrated or ineffective … even counterproductive.
Geoff Capes, the world’s top-ranked shot-putter in the late ’70s, wrote., “There’s nothing that you can do with steroids that you can’t do without them. They can’t give you strength that you couldn’t come by naturally. Among the elite it doesn’t matter who’s doing steroids or not. The best natural athlete will win.”
If you eat fresh, organically grown fruits and vegetables… lean, slow cooked grass fed and range fed meats… fresh whole milk, eggs, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains… and eat them in the right proportions, balance, and intervals… and get great sleep, road work, strength training, cardio conditioning, and coaching from a great trainer for a lot of years—that will put you ahead of the cheater. Something that’s been proven to work is giving your digestive system 16 hours of rest between dinner and breakfast. Regardless of your diet you’ll be leaner.
All the world records, from the era where steroids and other illegal enhancements were in legal use, have been obliterated by modern drug-free athletes. The modern Olympic athlete concentrates more on lifestyle, diet, training, and skills … and few will even consider drug enhanced performance.

Te Tumbo- I somewhat agree with you about Floyds superiority over fighters. But the truth is that he always selects fighters at his terms which are BS. Either he fights them when they are washed, he fights them 2lbs less than the actual weight class limits, or he avoids them in their PRIME all in general. And not only that the only reason people watch him is because they pay to watch him lose. But as long as he does his usual hit and run especially more now with his daddy as his trainer nobody really cares about him, they only watch because he is a LOUD MOUTH.Posted November 9, 2013 1:50 pm
In August of this year, Rodriguez signed with manager Al Haymon. At least three of Haymon’s fghters (Andre Berto, Antonio Tarver, and J’Leon Love) have tested positive for PEDs in the past.
Another Haymon fighter (Peter Quillin) was enrolled in a USADA testing program prior to his June 2, 2012, fight against Winky Wright. Then, after blood and urine samples were taken from both fighters, Wright was told that the testing had been abandoned and the samples were destroyed.
Haymon also represents Adrien Broner.
Broner, Antonio DeMarco, Golden Boy (Broner’s promoter), and the United States Anti-Doping Agency signed a contract for USADA testing prior to the November 17, 2012, Broner-DeMarco fight. But according to DeMarco, he wasn’t tested by USADA for that bout, nor was Broner.
Then, on June 22, 2013, Broner fought Paulie Malignaggi.
“I wanted VADA testing,” Malignaggi recalls. “And I was told, ‘No, we won’t do VADA. If you insist on VADA, there won’t be a fight.’ Finally, I said, ‘F— it. I’m getting seven figures. I’ll go ahead and fight.’ Would I have been more confident that Broner was clean if there had been VADA testing? Absolutely.”
Haymon’s flagship fighter, of course, is Floyd Mayweather.
On June 24, 2013, at a media sitdown before the kick-off press conference for Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez, Leonard Ellerbe (CEO of Mayweather Promotions) told reporters, “We’ve put in place a mechanism where all Mayweather Promotions fighters will do mandatory blood and urine testing 365-24-7 by USADA.”
USADA declined a request from this writer for comment on the truth of Ellerbe’s contention. Al Haymon also declined comment for this article. And questions remain regarding the issue of whether or not, several years ago, Mayweather “A” samples tested positive on three occasions.
Referencing that issue, Dan Rafael of ESPN stated during a November 21, 2012, online chat, “I need to see proof before I accuse somebody of something so serious. What is fact, however, is that the settlement in the Pacquiao-Mayweather lawsuit happened after the Pacquiao camp tried to get Mayweather’s USADA testing records. So maybe where there is smoke there is fire.”
So here’s a suggestion. Why doesn’t Floyd Mayweather enroll in VADA’s 24-7-365 program? And let him state publicly, “Any fighter who wants to be eligible to fight me must enroll in VADA’s 24-7-365 program NOW.”
And let’s take it a step further. In addition to Mayweather, Broner, Quillin, Berto, and Love, Al Haymon currently represents Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander, Lucas Matthysse, Marcos Maidana, Leo Santa Cruz, Keith Thurman, Austin Trout, Omar Figueroa, Gary Russell Jr, Sakio Bika, Josesito Lopez, Erislandy Lara, Shawn Porter, Errol Spence, Chris Arreola, Seth Mitchell, and Deontay Wilder.
Let’s assume that all of these fighters are clean. Let them all enter a 24-7-365 VADA testing program. I can’t speak for anyone else. But that would certainly make a believer out of me.
Al and Floyd have enough money to fund it.
It’s easy to talk the talk. Let’s see who walks the walk.Posted November 9, 2013 1:47 pm
LMFAO. The Pactards in here think Manny is Jesus. Just because we don’t like that fourth world congroidsman doesn’t mean it needs to get personal.

Manny Pacquiao will forever stand head and shoulder above Floyd Mayweather both as a fighter and a human being. We’ve all heard Floyd’s lame excuses, which have been going on for the lat ten year. We all know the cherry picking he’s admitted to. He avoided plenty of quality fighters. He’s also made a lot of money to his credit, but Manny Pacquiao has never needed Floyd for anything. He sells world wide better than Floyd. His popularity is second to none, and the love and adoration Manny Pacquio receives everywhere he goes is something Floyd will never attain. Floyd needs Manny more than Manny needs Floyd. Manny Pacquiao is fighter of the decade. I read recently that the corrupt WBC gave Floyd some kind of made up Supreme fighter belt just for him. Mr. Sulaiman felt the need to do so, but he can’t defend the title because it’s more of an award. The Supreme fighter award is most likely comparable to a taco supreme from Taco Bell. Manny Pacquiao is the peoples champion win or lose. He avoided no one. He lost, but as all true champions do, he rebounded and now will be part of the most anticipatd come back fight in history. Manny Pacquiao is the only 8 division boxing champion in history. He made the cover of TIME Magazine. He’s a congressman, he sells hit music, helps the poor, he was invited to the White House by President Obama and so on. Floyd jut can’t compare to Manny Pacquio inside or outside the boxing ring. Floyd will be famous for making a lot of money, fighting cherry picked opponent and avoiding the legendary fighter Manny Pacquiao.Posted November 9, 2013 1:57 am

Floyd Mayweather is on top as the undisputed #1 P4P fighter, whom recently had a big win over the young rising star Canelo Alvarez. Manny Pacquiao suffered two (arguably three) major losses, with the climax of getting KO cold by Marquez. Everybody expects Manny to beat Rios, but Top Rank and some of the boxing media will once again try to hype a Pacquaio/Mayweather fight, knowing darn well that boxing politics will keep it from happening. Bob Arum only wants his fighters competing against one another. Floyd is his own business and has bad blood with Arum. Golden Boy is a direct competitor to Top Rank and only works with Floyd, because of business and the chance one of Oscar’s fighters can score the upset win and take Mayweather’s 0 from him.Posted November 8, 2013 9:05 pm

Dumbo – Mickey Garcia didn’t agree to random Blood testing vs Rocky Martinez.. is he also a cheat and suspect?Posted November 8, 2013 8:04 pm
I GOTTA FACT-SLAP SOME MOFOs! FREDDIE ROACH SNIFFS GLUE! Pacquaio is not on same level or should be mentined in the same sentence as Mayweather. MAYWEATHER = $250mil contract. PACQUAIO = TopRank slave. MAYWEATHER = Undefeated. PACQUAIO = 8 losses. MAYWEATHER = almost $100mil for one night in Canelo win. PACQUIAO = $15-$20 for KO in worst night of little Pacqy’s life. MAYWEATHER = fights champions. PACQUAIO = fights other TopRank losers. MAYWEATHER = self-made millionaire. PACQUAIO = Bob Arum-made hypejob. MAYWEATHER = likes rolls royces. PACQUIAO = likes prostitutes. MAYWEATHER = doesn’t smoke or drink. PACQUIAO = PED user. MAYWEATHER = has no tattoos. PACQUIAO = has tattoos………but he’s afraid of needles.Posted November 8, 2013 8:02 pm
there is NO reason whatsoever to haggle over conditions to Harmless, Random, and MUTUALLY-Applied anti-doping tests. Pacquiao* is the ONLY fighter in boxing history to do so twice v. Mayweather and Marquez who publicly challenged Pacquiao* to improved testing. at which point, Team Pacquiao* shut their mouths about Marquez’s improved physique. besides, all Marquez did was KTFO of a fellow pumped-up featherweight. it’s not as if Pacquiao* is a naturally bigger fighter.Posted November 8, 2013 7:26 pm
KONCZ CONFIRMS PACQUIAO HAS NOT AGREED TO RANDOM DRUG TESTS WITH NO CUT-OFF DATE
Michael Koncz, recently confirmed that they have not agreed to the random blood and urine drug tests that Mayweather wants prior to all of his fights. “Yeah, well we agreed to, in the past, random testing as long as when we get tested, he gets tested, up to 14 days,” Koncz revealed in an interview with FightHype’s own Ben Thompson, making it clear that they’re still asking for a cut-off date some time during the weeks prior to the bout. “We’re not going to test on the day of the fight. I’m not going to sit here and tell you yes, we’ll agree to do tests that day or not, but What we’ve done in the past, we’ve agreed to give blood immediately after the fight, but then the problem is the commission told us that they won’t do that because it’s not sterile in the dressing rooms. Will we give blood 5 days, 7 days before the fight? You know, that’s something I have to talk to Manny about, but we have nothing to hide. I certainly can tell you we will not give any type of blood on the day of the fight,” Koncz continued.Posted November 8, 2013 7:24 pm
It won’t happen pac is not going to take a 20mil cut when he is making around 30 million not fighting floyd in China it doesn’t make since and Floyd wont offer more than 10 million for a contender always wants the lions share and you know what that’s reality be it Floyd does make more around 50 to 60 million a fightPosted November 8, 2013 7:11 pm
Why was drug testing turned down to begin with, if Manny wanted the fight everything was handed to him all he had to do was the drug testing. Some how this was Mayweathers being scared, because Manny would not do drug testing. On May 4th Arum needed to build a statium in Vegas for the fight to be held, for the date that Mayweather had already booked with the MGM Grand. Arum was not going to let the fight happen and people who follow Manny just can’t see that. It was all there in the very first negociations.Posted November 8, 2013 7:06 pm
@Jay Rock, PAC FINALLY accepted the FULL term of drug testing, but Floyd changed to a different tactic. Never ending with crazy excuses…Posted November 8, 2013 6:59 pm
Thanks @HecDog. You make excellent points here, too.
Some people with two eyes can’t even see what a blind man can. With that said, Floydiots only see the front side of a hand, not the back side. However, Floyd sees the front and back sides, and he sees THORNS are all over the back side of that hand; that back hand will bleed any flesh.Posted November 8, 2013 6:56 pm
Wow peace talk brought all this, manny said no to drug testing period! That sounds nuts to me!Posted November 8, 2013 6:49 pm
Floydiots keep saying that this fight will be a mismatch in Mayweather’s favor. However, Floyd knows that he will be mismatched and will get knocked out if he fights Pacquiao.
Bottom line: PAC has everything to beat Floyd. There are good reasons Floyd knows in and out that Floydiots know know why he doesn’t want to fight PAC.Posted November 8, 2013 6:47 pm
Well said, Peace Talk.Posted November 8, 2013 6:46 pm
I’m guessing when Mayweather said give Pacquiao everything he wants and asked for Olympic style testing upto a week before the fight and Team Pacquiao said no, that was done out of fear. Arum was never going to let this fight happen. Just like he tried to stop De La Hoya/Trinandad and Mayweather/Corellas. When these 2 fighter saw what Arum was doing they left and Arum has been pissed ever since.Posted November 8, 2013 6:44 pm
2009, 2011, 2012…even my Filipino family doctor suggested to me he might be on something!! Rios will KO Pacquiao into a ‘POSITION’ all of his own -RETIREMENT!!Posted November 8, 2013 6:42 pm
Pacquiao COULD have done what you just suggested in 2009, 2009 and 2012 but he was scared of needles (has tattoos), it was against his religion to test (is rumored to have had an affair with his WaPakman Co-star), doesn’t give blood within 30 days of a fight (gave blood within 18 days for Hatton fight).Posted November 8, 2013 6:39 pm
Floyd and Pacquaio are IN 2 different positions not the SAME!Posted November 8, 2013 6:36 pm
the same position….you mean, laying face first w/ his arse in the air? hmm….me thinks not. $ has the upper hand; still.Posted November 8, 2013 6:33 pm
manny should humiliate floyd and say he will except S1 to fight floyd (plus training expenses/150,000) because if he whoops him he will get the prestige and good money in the rematch.Posted November 8, 2013 6:31 pm
How could this fight happen since Mayweather makes one excuse after another?
This is a mouth fight by team Mayweather, not a real fight because team Mayweather is SO AFRAID.
Bottom line: This dream fight boils down to FEAR based on the above excuses and Mayweather own statement, “I am concerned for my health if I fight Manny Pacquioa. Boxing is a very dangerous sport and one punch can end your whole career. Manny Pacquiao has something in him that’s Supernatural. I love my family so I have to be careful.” Fear? Absolutely! Will the fight happen? No, No, No.Posted November 8, 2013 6:30 pm
a Mayweather v. Pacquiao* bout has ZERO appeal for this fight-fan. it’s always been an anticlimatic-mismatch in Floyd’s favor. particularly now when Mayweather might not be able to resist artificially tilting the playing-field in his favor with some mental or physical advantage that would rattle Pacquiao’s* pyshce even more. bottomline, only boxing-ignorant Pacquiao* fanboys ever believed that this was a competitive matchup. otherwise, there’s a reason why Tem Pacquiao* rejected $25 and $50 million paydays to face his primary P4P rival and it had nothing to do with culture, religion, or health.Posted November 8, 2013 6:17 pm
manny has to take alot less share of the purse. he should accept it and beat floyds a$$ and make more money in the rematch.Posted November 8, 2013 5:44 pm
Floyd is not in the position pac is in. Floyd hasnt been knocked out by a vicious right hand. Also floyd isnt face down with his tookus in the air…lolPosted November 8, 2013 5:24 pm
147 bum. Learn how to type please. Can barely read that crap you’re spoutingPosted November 8, 2013 5:07 pm
Rios will crack pacman’s chin, the china chin pac has been broken never to put humpty dumpty back together again, the end is near for pack man.Posted November 8, 2013 4:50 pm
Pacman wd beat floyd anytime anywhere ….dont go with the fact that floyd beat the guy who ko pacman…..pacman has the speed and the power on both hands to land at will at floyds ……why do u think floyed its so sacre to fa e him and always tryin to find excuses not to fight him???????? if he saw pac as an ease prey like all his past oponents ge wd have fought him long ago……..pacman its a better fighter always willin to take risks by fighting bigger guys…thast a legacy floyd will never have on his resumePosted November 8, 2013 4:45 pm
pac is gonna have to accept 7-30 or even 75-25. it sucks but he got clipped by marquez. he will also have to take all tests. i believe manny should take the short money because if he wins he can make it up in the rematch. forget about 60-40 . he might even have to take aflat fee of 8-10 million. Again I say do it.Posted November 8, 2013 4:41 pm
teppe are u stupid dude????? I gues u are since in ur post u said floyd its better than pac because floyd beat the guy who put to sleep pacman……just to renind you marquez its two weight classes dwn of floy and still floyd could not stop him ….just imagine floyd going up two weight divisions and see what wd happen…. well carl froch or andre ward wd kill floyd ….thats what marques did and u still braggin that floyd won that fight……U dont know sh!!!t about boxing dude.Posted November 8, 2013 4:36 pm
BORING.Posted November 8, 2013 4:18 pm
the best dont start with the excuses for pac already with the washed up thing even tho i agree pac is at the end the ride is out of gas he will win this fight coming up arum will make sure of that even if they have to juice pac upPosted November 8, 2013 4:16 pm
freddy is wrong floyd can stop right now and still he is better than pac bcuz he beat the man that put him to sleep plus made more $$$ and has 0L’s on his record im so tired of this talk bout floyd and pac let it go i dont care if it dont happen or if it do im over it nowPosted November 8, 2013 4:11 pm
Floyd is in a no win situation. Floyd fights pac n loses him legacy is ruined. Floyd fights pac and win his legacy is ruined cause pac is perceived as being past him prime. They shoulda fought years ago! Gbp, top rank, floyd n pac are all to blame for cheating the fans of possibly the greatest fight in history!Posted November 8, 2013 3:56 pm
I agree with Roach to a certain extent. Yes as others are saying the momentum has swung in floyds favour in terms of how far his career has gone compared to mannys. Yet theres no way of dressing it up that doesn’t leave a huge blot on mayweathers career if he never adds pacmans name to his resume. Beating Manny makes him the best of all time. Not fighting himleaves there room for argument that he wawasn’t even the best of his generation.Posted November 8, 2013 3:34 pm
Floyd vs Pac won’t happen with Top Rank in the picture. When there gone then Pac will get itPosted November 8, 2013 2:14 pm
REM, using your logic, Mayweather gets a better advantage everyday, cause he’s the better technically skilled of the two. As they both slow down due to age Mayweather’s skill advantage outweighs Manny’s tenacity more and more. The worse thing that could happen to Manny was getting koed they wa he did, because of that he had to take a long break. While that may do his brain and body good, it’s not going to help him stay in peak form, IMO anyway.Posted November 8, 2013 2:09 pm
It’s good to see someone understands what’s been going on this whole time. If Paquioa looks great in beating Rios, Mayweather/Pacquioa will not get a chace of being made, but if it close or questionable Arum will try to get the last bit out of Pacquioa by seeing what he can make with a Mayweather fight. I expect Arum to keep Pacquioa away until his contract is up.Posted November 8, 2013 2:05 pm
Floyd won’t fight Pac until he has a decisive advantage which means never.Posted November 8, 2013 2:02 pm
Mayweather needs a big Mexican name but now since there aren’t any he is desperate and will fight a WASHED up Pacquiao guaranteed. What a joke!Posted November 8, 2013 1:50 pm
Mayweather is going to eventually fight Pacquiao, but that’s going to be when Pacquiao is no longer associated with Top Rank.Posted November 8, 2013 1:41 pm
It doesn’t matter what Roach says or thinks, it’s up to the Bob Father. No article pertaining to a Mayweather/Pacquiao fight should leave out the Arum factor.Posted November 8, 2013 1:28 pm
If May weather fought Canelo maybe he is trying to polish his resume to put his name in contention for GOAT. Is this is the case he may just be willing to fight Pacquio. If he is still the same money grabber that he has been in the past he is definitely not fighting Pacman.Posted November 8, 2013 1:19 pm
Ha I’m lostPosted November 8, 2013 1:17 pm
No Mayweather is not. Mayweather is in the drivers seat. He controls when and if he fights Pac. Pac is on his knees begging for a fight now cuz he’s jealous Floyd made in one fight what the congroidsman made all last year.Posted November 8, 2013 1:14 pm
Pac is a funny dude he had me cracking up in face off “he want to be like me” lmao he’s already broken Bum Bum mentally.Posted November 8, 2013 1:12 pm
Yeah, I think Freddie+Pac better deal with Rios before we start talking talking talkingPosted November 8, 2013 12:57 pm
I think Roach got hit too much! Mayweather on a higher level! We don’t know how manny will look after getting ko’d that bad!Posted November 8, 2013 12:50 pm
