The mega fight that in still some circles behind closed doors is a “Done Deal” between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, 51-3-2, 38 KO’s and Floyd “Money” Mayweather, JR., 41-0, 25 KO’s is the only fight that Pacquiao needs to be involved with whether on November 13 or a future date. There is nobody in boxing today other than Floyd Mayweather, JR. who remotely can hang in the ring with Pacquiao. The newest rumors are promoter Bob Arum who by the way, did not return calls left for him by RSR to clear the matter up in his own words wants Pacquiao to face either Miguel Cotto, whom he hands down destroyed last year, and is damaged goods thanks to “Hands of Plaster” Antonio Margarito’s cheating ways. Now that we have mentioned ole “Hands of Plaster”, Arum is also talking about him being a potential opponent.
Funny last I looked, Margarito was banned from fighting in the US, but hey, this is boxing and Bob has lots of money to buy Margarito’s way back into a license here in the US and with the fight being talked about taking place in the United Arab Emirates, it doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist or even a Groupie Writer to figure this one out. If the fight goes down over there, it most likely will be Margarito in a fight that all of boxing should stand up and Boycott. It’s amazing that in the documentary ASSAULT IN THE RING, the same Bob Arum complained about what Luis Resto did in having his gloves loaded that led to Billy Collins being ruined for life. I guess Margarito gets a pass for what he did to Cotto and probably countless others in the ring right Bob since you are his Promoter?
I don’t claim to know Pacquiao personally or have taken pictures with him that made me feel I’m now his new best friend, but I do believe in Auras. Manny always has a positive one around him and I think when he speaks in pre and post fight boxing interviews, he is very sincere in his words. With that said, I know in the end, Manny Pacquiao will do the right thing and turn down both Cotto and Margarito for sure and demand that the only fight he wants is Floyd Mayweather, JR. If that happens, then all of boxing will know that it is in fact ,Floyd who is holding up the fight from happening.
