You ever seen Floyd fight on Showtime? He looks at it as a step down. I'm sure the fight will happen, just not right away at least. Probably after Golden Boy finish their Showtime obligations because it definitely won't be on Showtime.

He's definitely kicking himself, but its more than just the money. He could have had the glory of KO Pacman. Would have went from villain to hero in one night. And shut up every person who ever doubted Floyd. If it happened when they first tried, he would have been the one who stopped the Pacquiao train, and not Bradley/Marquez.

And that's the problem. Floyd makes so much money, that he doesn't want to risk his health and career (his words not mine) for a Pacquiao fight. All because of a drug test. The first time the fight was all systems go, Arum was cornered, he thought Floyd would balk at the weight limit penalties, Floyd didn't. Then Floyd brings up random testing and Arum found his way out.

Marquez fought Manny four times. No random drug testing. And he still beat Manny and was not killed by him in the ring.
