Exactly. Mayweather has been dodging the Pac Man for years now. He’ll never fight him. Because he knows the Pac man will destroy him.
I’m not a big fan of boxing, but I never heard of Manny until a coupld of years ago.
But I’d say you’re correct on your assessment.
Mayweather is one of a handful of boxers who are still UNDEFEATED.
Maybe he wants to go down in history as being undefeated rather than risk a possible lose (even if it’s worth relinquishing $100 Million ). After all, he’s rich enough already...
Just my guess...
The reason I find this to be even more bizarre — and I preface this by saying that along with Tommy Hearns and Bernard Hopkins, Manny is one of my all-time favs (and I would be rooting like hell for him against Mayweather) — Floyd and his people had to have watched the Marquez fight like the rest of us did.
Manny looked very beatable in defeating Marquez — a fighter that Mayweather dispatched with ease. That fight must have suggested to Floyd and his people that they have a significant chance for victory against Manny.
It is bizarre to me that Mayweather continues to duck Manny given 1) the payday and 2) results of Marquez II suggesting that Manny may be more vulnerable than in the past, particularly with a fighter with Floyd’s style.
I hope it happens and I hope Manny knocks his ass out. But if it isn’t happening NOW given all of the above, it may not be possible.
Unless Floyd is holding out until nursing home status?
