If Mayweather is that good of a fighter, and I don't doubt that he is, he'd take on Manny without dancing around and coming up with excuses left and right. PERIOD.
Seriously, I like Mayweather, but he doesn't help himself by running around what could be the biggest fight in so many years! Oh, and see Stoney's response...
Mayweather certainly isn't on the decline, but I think leaving the game for the upteenth odd months or so definitely hurt. He also could've made some money to pay all those backtaxes by fighting a Cotto or a Margarito (pre-cheat)
Just tired of Mayweather's bullshi*. But that's what makes him a successful businessman.
1. He signs the Marquez fight the day of the Hatton/Pacman fight.
2. He later backtracks and says if Pacman really wanted the fight, all he had to do was say so and he could've paid Marquez "step-aside" money to make the fight happen.
2.5 Fluff, talk, talk, talk, talk, Fluff.
3. If I remember the sequence of events correctly...you wait 12 hours after the Pac/Hatt fight and announce a Mayweather/Pacman fight. But of course, no wait....can't go straight for Pacman. Let's have Marquez fresh off his first lightweight fight move up 1.5 divisions and fight at a catchweight. Right. Good businessman I tell you. Damn good.
