However, he also has give very valid reasons....that being that he would not want to just give in to all Mayweathers demands.
I think what is also laughable is how some people choose to focus on the lesser defense and just pretend the stronger argument does not exist.
OK, wait a second. What are all his arguments? I'm commenting from a place of ignorance, I admit it.
This is what I've heard. Manny is scared of needles. He thinks Olympic blood testing will leave him weakened (though Mayweather would be going through the same thing, just as Olympic athletes have done for many years).
I think those are both bunk. There may be stronger reasons given . . . but even mentioning things like that sets off my BS detector. It's like when someone's late for work and tells you that he was stuck in traffic and, oh yeah, he had car trouble, too. One good reason should suffice; stop trying to accumulate weak excuses into some mega-excuse.
Yeah, I can't stand Mayweather and I think that Pacman is awesome, but all I've heard are tremendously weak excuses from Manny's camp. If THIS is the difference between them fighting and not fighting, it tells me that Pacquiao is either on the juice, or wants no part of Mayweather. There is some serious denial in this thread.
NOTHING in this world will ever shock. I have simply lived too much.
So yeah, maybe Pac is juiced.
I would say this is the order in which I believe Pac is against the fight.
1. He is insulted by the Man, and probably HATES the fact that his career epic showdown is against a person of such character. These two men are opposites in every way. I think Pac feels intimidated by Mayweathers pre fight maneuvering and is hyper sensitive to "losing" the pre fight battle of wills.
2. I think Pac maybe is ducking Mayweather a bit. Who can blame him? I also think Mayweather doesn't take a win against a clean Pac for granted.
3. Pac really is on juice and "Money" really did figure out the way that would force Pac into a clean fight
I won't deny any of those are possible.
But I think it is most likely 1 then maybe 2....and 3 as more of a anythings possible scenario
