mayweather vs pacman New Debate!

Is this fight ever going to happen??
It couldn't be more obvious of who's ducking who. What's your opinions?

    Don't really care.  The fight should have happened when Manny peaked 2008 or so when he was damn near the Tyson (Mike, not Furry-fountain LOL) of the lower weight division.  Right now Manny couldn't KO my 12y.o niece. 
     
    Floyd is past it too, used to be the unhittable moving target to Manny's unstoppable force, but will still shoulder-roll his way to another win, whether a barnburner in 2008, to a snooze fest next year.

    Neither of them are what they once were. If they fought now then Floyd would win. If they fought back when Manny smashed Hatton then Manny would have taken Floyd's unbeaten record.

    For me FMM is ducking Pacman because he will retired undefeated but always with the cloud of not fighting Pac. Pac has lost already so isn't under that impression. Everyone wants/wanted to see FMM lose me included sadly now I don't think it would happen. 
     
    If the fight does occur it will be the finale for both fighters imo. So it makes sense to have it when everything else is dried up and done as one last hurrah. As usual the puppet masters in boxing have ruined it for the fans.

    Mayweather is definitely ducking pacman, to interested in keeping his 0 as Rasputin said. Personally I can't stand the guy banging on all the time about how he's the best ever, far from it in my opinion. To be the best you have to take on the best and he'll always have that one name missing form his record. If you lack back over time all of those who are considered to be the greatest have lost at some point because they challenged themselves. Sugar Ray Robinson, Julio Cesar Chavez, Willie Pep, Rocky Marciano, Henry Armstrong, Ali, the list could go on forever, all have multiple losses and they are still considered to be some of the best ever.

    Before the Maidana fights I thought May was on the slide a bit but would beat Pac easily.
     
    After I think he's well on the slide and would probably lose to Pac.
     
    Maidana landed some quite neat work, even in the second fight, but lacked the speed and fluid movement to string things together IMO. 
     
    May has a solid chin and great ability but his reactions have gone quite a bit.  If he had any punch power left I think he would be a danger to Pac, but that's long gone.
     
    Mayweather is ducking the fight now IMO.  Its a fight he could lose.
     
    I don't think May will risk Khan now.

    I agree, with trident in relation to may and pac. I was thinking the same when maidana was landing shots.

    As to khan he need to get through Alexander first. If he doesn't he can forget it.

    Unfortunately with Pacquiaos lack of KO ability at 147lbs just now Id predict a Mayweather victoey. I cant see him getting a ponits decision over Mayweather especially in Vegas where the fight would surely be.

    But he has 'enough' power and Deffo the speed to give may a run for his money.

    It seems like may is finding every excuse not to fight pacqiou. There's something that he's worried about.

    Pacquiao hasnt had enough power to KO anybody since moving up to 147 5 years ago.  Theres definitely something about Pacquiao that Mayweather doesnt like but post Castillo 2002 hes been picking his fights pretty carefully this avoidance of Pacquiao isnt unique.

    How many fighters has May fought that have the same or more speed than himself?

    My point is I think he's worried about pacqious speed and workrate

    This would have been a great fight 5 years ago, lost interest now, Like Lewis v Bowe it will probably never happen , quite surprised actually after a few paq defeats and being considered past his best , may still doesn't want it.
