Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao Fight In Jeopardy

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are scheduled to fight on May 2nd, and the entire world is expected to tune in for the epic showdown. However, there seems to be a serious dispute between both camps. It was recently reported that the Mayweather and Pacquiao showdown is in jeopardy of taking place.

Manny Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum stated that the Mayweather camp is doing something fishy. Bob Arum also said that the MGM Grand and Floyd Mayweather are in cahoots. Fans like Jaime Garcia Dias (twitter.com) have learned that the MGM Grand will be the venue that Mayweather and Pacquiao hopefully fight in. However, there seems to be a big problem with the way that the tickets were handled between both camps. It appears that Floyd Mayweather has been given extra tickets, and it is also appears that he is being given special treatment because he is the hometown boy.

Bob Arum feels that Manny Pacquiao is getting the short end of the stick. However, Floyd Mayweather’s advisor Leonard Ellerbe promises that nothing fishy is going on between the MGM Grand and Mayweather. Leonard Ellerbe feels that Bob Arum is angry because he is not in charge of the promotion. Leonard continued on saying that Bob needs to feel important, and Leonard also said that Bob cannot stand taking orders from Mayweather. It seems that things are heating up as the fight gets closer and closer. Let’s hope that the Mayweather and Pacquiao fight actually takes place on May 2nd.

Floyd Mayweather’s Charade Is Over

Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues to talk about a fight with Manny Pacquaio. Mayweather continues to bash the Filipino fighter at every chance he gets. When interviewed about Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather usually becomes disgruntled. That’s because Manny Pacquiao can beat him.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has avoided Manny Pacquiao for countless years, and it’s because he is afraid of him. Mayweather’s biggest claim to his boxing success is the fact that he is undefeated. The fact that Floyd is undefeated means nothing. He has not fought the toughest fighters in his division. Floyd Mayweather usually picks an opponent that he is sure he can beat.

Manny Pacquaio is a different type of fighter than the “Pretty Boy.” Pacquaio fights for his fans like Bruce Levenson, and he fights like a warrior. In his most recent fights, Manny Pacquiao has looked unbeatable. If Floyd Mayweather Jr. ever fights Manny Pacquaio, he will be in for a long night. Pacquiao possesses speed that Floyd Maywether Jr. has never seen before. Also, Pacquaio is a southpaw, which means he fights with his right hand closer to his opponent. Ironically, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been known to have problems with southpaw fighters.

When I close my eyes, I can envision Manny Pacquaio dancing around Floyd Mayweather Jr., and landing punches at will. The old saying is, “styles make fights”, and Manny Pacquaio possesses the answer to Floyd Mayweather’s style.

Heavyweight Boxing Needs Overhaul

Heavyweight boxing has never been so low. American heavyweight boxing has no presence in today’s society. The Amen Cinic says it can cause brain damage. Remember the glory days of Muhammad Ali? Ali was the greatest fighter in his era, and possibly of all time. Muhammed Ali was one of the biggest stars on the planet. Ali wouldn’t be able to walk down the street without a mob of fans. 

Today, things are very different. There was not a major American Heavyweight Champion, since Mike Tyson. The pay per view market was once dominated by Mike Tyson. Tyson drew millions of viewers in his prime. He was both excited and controversial. We don’t have that anymore. 

The current Heavyweight Champion is Wladimir Klitschko. Klitschko hails from the Ukraine, and the fans call him Dr. Steelhammer. Klitschko has not lost in over a decade. The late, great American boxing trainer, Emmanuel Steward taught Klistcho everything he knows. Wladimir was on a decline in his career, and he was knocked out by lesser fighters. Everything changed when Wladimir met Emmanuel Steward. Steward trained the best fighters for over four decades. Hall of fame boxers such as: Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy Hearns, Roy Jones Jr, Lennox Lewis, and of course Wladimir Klitscho, all learned from Emmanuel Steward.

We need an American born heavyweight to take the title back. A small glimmer of hope could be found in Deontay Wilder. Wilder is an undefeated American heavyweight. He gets a title shot soon, but not against Klistcho. Instead, Wilder will fight for a lesser title.
