Mayweather wanted the blood test the day of the fight before the fight. Paquiao offered to do it anytime except fight day, and Mayweather refused. Finally Paquiao agreed then Mayweather found different excuses to back out. It is always the same thing. Idiotic demands, Paquiao finally gives in, Mayweather thinks of something else to demand, fight never happens. The funny thing is Mayweather is more likely to win. The odds just aren't as stacked as he would like.

 

This.

 

Anyways, I doubt many people that actually watch will be predicting a Paq win.  He is six hard years beyond his prime.  It's a shame this could of been an all-time great fight.

I think it will be an incredible anti climax and I wont bother wasting 36 minutes of my life.

 

Pacman is way past his best, and was too small at his best.

 

It is a money spinning exhibition fight, nothing more.

I posted quotes straight from the sources. I guess its mayweathers fault hbo and showtime still havent agreed on the revenue split.

Same jargon without reading "floyd fucked up the fight and was scared" bla bla. Just watch on may 2nd for the same reason you watch any Ronda rousey fight. Then line up the next john doe you think can beat him

Now I gotta find a place to watch it that isn't charging a massive cover charge.

Mayweather has the advantage and will likely win a decision, but maybe he knows something we don't. He has been doing everything possible to avoid this fight. Paquiao's aggressive style is what is needed, but his KO power isn't what it used to be. I don't think he can put Mayweather out.

 

This.  I think Mayweather wins a decision, I think 5+ years ago, Paquiao finishes him, or really hurts him, but I just don't see Manny winning this one.  I'll be rooting for him though.

My question is going to be start time.. PPV boxing matches are notorious for running into the godawful early hours in the morning with all the pomp and circumstance.. this one with all the bullshit (2 ring announcers, parades upon entry, etc) might not start until midnight eastern.

Pacquiao since I'm Filipino.

 

Mayweather is genius to delay this fight and wait for a past-his-prime Pacman. Genius enough to win? Hopefully not.

Everyone keeps saying this, im assuming Mayweather must be in his prime... In my opinion Mayweather's PRIME has been gone, he was hit in the cotto fight more than hes ever been hit. He just hasnt lost like everyone wanted him to. Floyd's prime was against Gatti, Judah, Hatton & Marquez (somewhere between 05-09) Pacquiao's prime was from De La Hoya till an unfocused Timothy Bradley fight (When he cared about watching the Boston Celtics playoff game more than the guy in front of him (08-12) in which i still think he tooled bradley. Pacman's "prime" was more recent than mayweather's "prime."

 

Is Mayweather not 38 years old? 2 years older than Pacquiao?

The reason Manny's prime is considered further passed is because of his style of fighting. It ages you quicker. Mayweather is more of a counter fighter and doesn't take as many shots.

You saved me writing my own comment because I agree with yours exactly in every way. I will be watching though, just hoping for Mayweather to get caught out.

Even me, a fellow Filipino, has doubts on whether Pac can finish Mayweather. If he can't TKO or at least score a couple of knockdowns, I doubt Pac can win on points against Mayweather. Either UD or "controversial" split decision win for Mayweather.

 

I do hope though that Manny wins. LOL. Besides all that Filipino "Nationalism", I just don't like Mayweather as a person. A boxer yes. But as a human being. Well that's different.

Couple of thoughts on the general thread. I don't think Mayweather ever was scared of Pacquiao. As fans, we all reckon Pacquiao is an underdog so you have to think Mayweather certainly would too. Mayweather just likes to be the boss before fights, that's why he was talking to Pacquiao directly a few months ago as opposed to talking to Arum. He wanted to undercut Arum and make Pacquiao say "I don't care about promotion, I want this fight". So yeah, it was Mayweather's fault that the fight didn't happen a while ago, but not because he was scared, he's just a dick.

 

I HATE people acting like these guys are past their prime. Mayweather is STILL defeating opponents easily. I reckon Maidana's style might always be a difficult style for Mayweather, but Mayweather's outclassing guys like Cotto, Alvarez, Guerrero etc., all of which are still top ranked guys. People say Pacquiao is past his prime; how me a prime Pacquiao that dominated JMM? Imo, the fight he got knocked out is by a LANDSLIDE the first time Pacquiao ever even looked good against him. Since then, he shutout Bradley who the judges stupidly made beat Pac previously, he easily kicked Rios' ass, in a bad fight he still showed the skill difference against Algieri by knocking him down at least legitimately 4 times. Pacquiao looked as good as ever against Rios and he finally showed the knowledge to deal with a fighter running away from him against Algieri (for example, struggling to land on a running Mosely).

 

These are still the top two fighters in the world today, they are both looking solid against top guys. People saying this fight shouldnt happen now or bullshit just don't seem to want to enjoy things. This fight imo is the biggest sporting event of all time. I can't fucking wait.

It is one of the best things in boxing for years no doubt (though boxing has been so shitty for decades and I wonder if that is really any praise at all). I don't think anyone believes Pacman is totally finished. It's just that he's been proved human and so people are reluctant to believe in the fairy tale win against a guy that is a great fighter and has the right style to beat him. It's a shame because this fight would have been more of an event some time ago. I wasn't there for the negotiations but I would bet that Mayweather was the one doing the avoiding back then.
