Is Floyd Mayweather Afraid To Fight Manny Pacquiao???

Manny Pacquiao Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather backed away from fighting Manny Pacquiao before because PacMan wouldn’t agree to blood-testing close to their bout, but now Manny has agreed to his terms and Floyd still hasn’t agreed to the match! Details under the hood!

The mega-fight between Manny Pacquiao and undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. will apparently not happen this year, as the suggested deadline to sign a deal has come and gone.

The Mayweather camp did not respond to Bob Arum’s self-imposed midnight (pt) cutoff to agree to a much-anticipated November 13th showdown.

“Floyd for whatever reason, and I’m sure he’s got some valid reason, did not want to commit,” said Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, in a press conference.

The Top Rank CEO indicated he did not speak directly to Mayweather but rather through a mediator. Pacquiao, who recently became a congressman in the Philippines, intends to fight in November, and all signs point to either Miguel Cotto or Antonio Margarito taking on the current welterweight champion.

The newest development in this saga comes several months after Pacquiao refused to submit random blood tests within 30 days prior to a proposed fight date with Mayweather. Arum, though, says that hurdle has been crossed

“I’m not going to go into specifics, but I think that issue was resolved,” Arum said in regards to blood testing. “Not as clear cut as [a two-week window prior to the fight], but I believe it was resolved. ”

After the previous negotiations fell through, the fighters opted to get in the ring with different opponents, with Pacquiao (51-3-2) handling Joshua Clottey in a unanimous decision in March, and Mayweather (41-0) doing the same to Shane Mosley two months later.

What’s really good Floyd??? First you stand up Chilli — now Pacquiao?

Do you think Mayweather is afraid to fight Pacquiao or do you think he has good reason to turn down this match? Some people feel like Floyd just didn’t like Arum imposing a deadline on him, while others feel as if Mayweather should be blackballed for running from this fight.

Thoughts?

    Why would he be scared? Floyd is undefeated because no one had the strength to stop him. You think Manny skinny azz is going to do it. Please. To fight the best for a major payday you have to prove yourself worthy and if Manny was Floyd would fight him. It’s not the right time but scared, hell no.

  • Alove

    I don’t blame him for not wanting to fight him b/c now he has had time to get himself clean. Floyd wanted him to do a test last year and he wouldnt. So he is not scared, he just knows that pac is playing.

  • Darrius

    i promise you when mayweather loose and he will loose he will never fight again. he retired cuz he spent all his money so he had to come back. i dont care how old manny is mayweather dont want to fight. damn his trainers assualt charges thats his dumbass fault.

  • MS VOUN

    Stop playing and sign the contract we wanna see the two fight everybody been waiting on this fight sense hatton so lets just get’r done pacquiao agreed to mayweathers terms so theres no excuse now Im ready for vegas baby lets do this mayweather give everybody what they’ve been waiting for

  • ladyfee

    @realtalk I agree with u. People hate Floyd cuz he is cocky. So was Ali. He deserves to be cocky. No matter what the hatred say, Floyd is still and will remain undefeated. Don’t u know steroids enhance ur performance and makes u stronger and able to take blows like they are taps? That’s why its illegal in sports. I don’t blame Floyd one bit for requesting the test. Oh and Darrius, its lose not loose. And u had the nerves to check realtalk. LMAO!

  • loso

    First off….y would he be scared of Pacman. Floyd didn’t accept the terms because he wants Manny to go through the same testing that Shane went through. Second, his trainer goes to trial next month…I’m pretty sure he wants to make sure Roger will be in his corner for the fight. So u losers who know nothing about boxing fall back.
