The mega fight of our generation is unfortunately still just a rumor.  Floyd Mayewather (47-0, 26 KO’s) is #1 in the world Pound For Pound.  Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KO’s) is #3 in the world Pound For Pound.  In my eyes #2, because of the inactivity of Andre Ward.  Mayweather is the best, but is he TBE (the best ever)?  I think so.  But even if he surpasses Rocky Marciano’s record of 50-0, which is the best record of all time, he’s going to have to do it by fighting Manny Pacquiao.  If he doesn’t, he will always be criticized for not fighting Pacman, and to a lot of people, 50-0 won’t mean anything.

In my opinion, this fight has never been closer then it is today to actually happening.  I was close to being convinced that it would happen after the Manny Pacquiao Foot Locker commercial went viral.  This morning I logged into my Facebook and noticed in my news feed that Floyd Mayweather posted a video of Pacman getting knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez.  This sealed the deal for me.  The subliminal messages have been sent.  I now believe that Floyd will finally take the fight.

I know for a fact, but will not reveal my source, that Showtime is trying everything in their power to make this happen.  So who will have the final word if it does?  Well unfortunately, the answer to that question is Floyd “Money” Mayweather.  Is Floyd afraid?  No, absolutely not.  This is about money.  Floyd supposedly wants the purse to be split 70/30.  Manny has supposedly agreed to 55/45.  Unfortunately the longer Floyd makes everyone wait, the more money he ultimately gets.

Money, power, respect!  Im quoting straight from Mayweather fitted hat in this picture.  He’s got the money, we all know that.  He is the worlds highest paid athlete, grossing over 80 million dollars last year.  He’s got the power, we all know that as well.  There is a long line of fighters clawing at the door that leads them to a Mayweather showdown.  Heck, I even ordered a TMT shirt from his website.  But does he have the respect?  In my eyes he does.  Hey, I’m only one guy though.  In the eyes of many, he does not, and he never will until he defeats Manny Pacquiao.  That is the only thing standing between Floyd and TBE!

If this fight finally happens, which I strongly believe it will, Mayweather will defeat Manny Pacquiao via unanimous decision.  So what’s the problem?  What’s the holdup?  MONEY!!!  I mean that figuratively and literally.  If Manny wants it, he’s going to have to drop his price tag.  It will be a huge blow to his ego, but ultimately still his largest paycheck.  Mayweather is a boxing God.  He can beat anyone at any given time.  Well, its time!!!  FIGHT PACQUIAO!!!
