The recent 90 day sentence of Floyd Mayweather, JR., 42-0, 26 KO’s, has become the latest obstacle in the way of a Manny Pacquiao, 53-3-2, 38 KO’s, super fight. Mayweather, JR., has been weighing his options since his controversial knockout over Victor Ortiz, and the name “Miguel Cotto” kept coming up, but that fight will not satisfy the masses that have wanted to see the two pound for pound best go at it for the last several years.
One of the first obstacles in the way of the super fight was steroid allegations. It was a hot topic in the United States, and so were prescription drugs being purchased at a lesser rate from other countries. Canada drugs have been purchased by many.
Bob Arum has stated that a fight between Floyd and Manny is still likely to happen in June, but we have heard this before. The fight has been on again/off again for years and after the lackluster performance of Manny in his last fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, much of the mystery is gone. The heavy favorite going in has to be Floyd, a better technician and stronger puncher than Marquez. He’s just bigger and better.
The hope is that this super fight will go down as soon as Floyd gets out of jail or shortly thereafter. We’ll have to wait and see what the decision will be in about three months.
