So after just seeing Manny return and destroy Rios, which was a tune up fight to begin with anyway (but w/e)

Do you think Manny VS Floyd will happen? and if it does how do you think it would go?

Shit wouldn't have the appeal it used to anymore. My $ would be on money if they did fight.

I hope not, it has lost its luster. I also think Floyd would win.

they will never fight.

callouts happened a lot in the 70's because it was competitive and there was only so much room on the top.

the prospect of a loss will only hurt either of them so they have no need to. theyre already the two biggest.

It CAN happen yes

But, Mayweather needs to be paid more money. Mayweather wants to be overpaid, Bob Arum wants him to be underpaid. Both sides need to get a fair pay

So take both their earnings from their last fights, and evenly divide the difference. I think that would mean Mayweather gets a 50% higher cut since Pacquiaos max payout from the Rios fight was $30M with royalties included, and I think Mayweather pulled in $45M royalties included against Canelo

Pacquiao looked old and slow tonight, Brandon Rios was just whatever, it made Pacquiao looked better. So Mayweather smells blood, and if the money is right he'll do it

No, Bob Arum would demand top dollar for his damaged good.

I used to want this fight to happen, Pacquiao vs Mayweather, because of Mayweather's annoying trash talking I thought it'd be good if Pacquiao could shut his trap with some humble pie... then Pacquiao made those homophobic statements, then karma caught up with him and he got knocked out, I could care less if this happens let alone who wins.

Mayweather destroys no one. He will win tho, I agree there.

they both on the side of retirement now, mayweather needs to give up now, i mean seriously i've never seen a pick and choose champion in all my life, boxing is rubbish these days and your'll never see any great fights as long as they get to pick who they fight and when. ufc is where it is at and all the would of been great boxers go that way now

@dbtbandit67: Mayweather's an obnoxious asshole. I think we would all love to see him get knocked out by Pacquiao, but I'm not sure it'll ever happen.

Manny Pacquiao was one of the all time greats and Mayweather was just an annoying troll and the only reason anyone would organize this match is to set up an "over the hill gang" fight.

it would be fun but would it pay off for anyone?

If I had the money I would organize the fight in Manila the one locale where a payday is assured.

Manny has his fans there and Mayweather has the ego that would not allow him to turn down a chance for one more fight

He will win but he's a boring boxer if this fight would have happen a couple of years ago then i think pacman could have beaten him now no way

Pacman will probably have to avenge his defeats against Bradley (even though Pacman clearly won that fight) and especially Marquez, before Mayweather would be willing to give him a shot.

did you see diego corrales, gatti, hatton, mosley fight?

he doesnt put people in the hospital but he can destroy people and make them look like punching bags if he wanted to. question is always if he wants to. i dont like the a guys attitude but man he can box.

When I use the dramatic word destroy, I mean physical damage that is obvious to the eye. I mean he isn't a big puncher. He beat those guys up easily yeah, just that's not the way I use that word.

Hopefully it will. Floyd would win but most would be pulling for Manny.

As long as Pacquiao beats Bradley (most likely) and Mayweather beats Maidana (a foregone conclusion), there shouldn't be any reason not to make this fight happen.

If it happens it won't be close in my opinion, I'd have Mayweather on top Unanimous decision.

I think this fight should have happened when Pacquiao was on the top of boxing. Pacman gave the chance to Mayweather to fight in many times, but the Pretty Boy refused it. Now I think that Pacquiao's best years have gone. He is still fighting but, in my opinion, he has not the stamina, the energy and his punchs aren't as fast as they was in the past to beat Mayweather.
