Boxing will continue to decline until someone finds a way to consistently make the best Boxers face one another. People are no longer interested in excuses and rhetoric.

I agree with Mayweather 100%. Its true isnt it, we dont care if Manny is juiced or not we just want to see the fight. I applaud Floyd for admitting what has been whispered all along.. that he believes Manny is on steroids. He is the one who has to get in front of him at the end of the day and has the most to lose. He is the undefeated fighter and he has to protect more than his health, legacy etc. Just look at cotto. Did his loss to Margarito come with an asterick? Floyd will destroy Manny and he knows that. If he fights him its a lose lose . He loses if literally loses and he loses if he wins cause people will say Manny was not in his prime

When he's 43-0, he can say whatever he wants.

I don't like the guy.

If anyone hasn't read what he put up on facebook/twitter about Jeremy Lin, look it up. What an ignorant son of a bitch.

Even if the fight happens I doubt it will surpass the hype and expectations it brought all these years. Being a defensive minded fighter that Floyd is, he'll probably drag all the way to 12 by running around and win by unanimous/split decision just like he did with De La Hoya. Then Pacquiao fanboys will start making excuses, along with other unsatisfied watchers, then it's deja vu all over again. People are excited as if they'll see a KO but it'll never happen.

admitting that he thinks mannys taking steroids? no, hes accusing manny of taking steroids, thats not admitting, its an accusation. he may have a little more to lose but to say its a lose/lose is dumb, its not like everyone thinks hes gonna win. And manny isnt in his prime because of 1 fight? floyds older than him

When did it become a fact that Manny is using ? This is nothing like Margarito-Cotto. margarita got busted with plaster. When has Manny got busted with anything?

According to some, Marquez schooled Manny 3 times. How in the world did Marquez do that to a roided boxer? Are you saying Floyd can't do that? I mean, I thought this was such an easy fight for Floyd. Now Manny is going to kill him or at the very least, make him attempt suicide?

Stop it bro, just stop it. Why stop at Manny? Why not abolish football and boxing altogether? Surely a lifetime of football hits or a 12 round heavyweight fight would do at least half the damage Manny does in one fight, right?

Please stop defending Floyd on this. If any other boxer said this, you guys would be all over him. But if Floyd says it, he's right! Manny will kill him!

Drug testing didn't even seem like an issue this time around. Fight fell apart, AGAIN this time over date and money split.

They're both just interested in making as much money as possible. That's pretty much the beginning and the end of it. Doesn't help either that Paccy spends huge amts of money and is now broke, apparently.

Straight-up, I think Floyd would wear down Paccy and TKO him near the end. Hard to say since Floyd is one of the biggest d-bags I've ever seen in boxing, but styles make fights and I think his style comes off better.
