It has been talked about and anticipated for such a long time now, that it appears as if there will never be a fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. For a while there has been much anticipation regarding a possible fight and a lot of speculation to whether Mayweather has been avoiding the fight to ensure his perfect record remains intact. He has been the less talkative of the two boxers about the possibility of a fight, but Manny remains adamant about his desire to meet Floyd Mayweather in the ring.
Manny has stated that he has told Mayweather his phone is open 24/7 and to give him a call anytime that he’s ready to fight, and major fans like Jason Halpern really want to see that happen. With their ages climbing, both boxers are starting to get up to a point where they should be considering retiring. Simply put, the fight needs to happen fairly soon if it is going to transpire. It may be strategic for Floyd Mayweather to avoid a fight with Manny in the long run, but boxing fans can agree that this fight is desired by many. Perhaps Manny Pacquiao needs to step up his trash talking game and see if he can lure Floyd Mayweather Jr. into a fight with his mouth. Whatever strategy he takes, it is fairly certain that Manny will make every attempt he can at getting the champion in the ring for a shot at the title and respect that comes with it.
