Pretty much the status quo for any prize fighter is to keep them from fighting the top competition. They make so much money even against lesser opponents. Its not like the UFC where a few losses doesn't mean much on a fighter's record. For boxers, 2-3 losses really marks the end of their reign. 

That would change though if they actually did start fighting higher caliber competition on a regular basis. The fans want to see the best fighting the best, and in the long run are more discerning than the promoters give us credit for.

Would love to see a Mayweather v Pacquiao 2 happen.   

Now? Why? That fight is only relevant 10 years ago. Even when they fought in 2015 both were already pasted their prime.

Everyone is hyped on Pacquiao's recent fights, and Floyd seems itchy to get back in.  Age wise, I don't want to see either fight anyone younger.  Plus the Pacquiao excuse makers would get a second chance given their rivalry

Would be another snore fest. @RRypien37is right the fight was only relevant many years ago. Floyd has always been too precious about his '0' losses.

Nah, there's enough left in the tank there for both fighters for it to be an interesting fight, unless Floyd wips Pacquiao's butt again.

One arm is an excuse. Floyd dominated Pacquiao and Manny is a sore loser.

 

Point of boxing is to hit and not get hit.  You want a brawl, go watch Ward v Gatti

there is literally medical proof of his rotator cuff surgery, if you don't believe that then you're in denial. Manny a sore loser? that's the first time i've heard that... ever.

Nevada also denied Pac for a numbing cream to freeze his injured shoulder.


Froid got caught with a banned IV fluid before the fight and knew about Pac's rotator cuff injury and still wouldn't trade with him.

Even with all that, it was a draw AT BEST. Other HOF boxers like Holyfield and Tyson didn't think Mayweather won. Floid never 'whipped' Pacquaio in that fight, in fact it was the opposite. the injured smaller Pac was chasing a healthy bigger Mayweather around the ring. 

 

don't even get me started with the compubox, it was rigged and was debunked already. Pac landed more shots that he was credited for. 

 

anyways... he's retired and hasn't been relevant since he paid a flyweight japanese kickboxer to take a dive in a joke exhibition 'fight' in Japan...

 

meanwhile, Pac at 41 has a belt defeating an undefeated Thurman, and now has Crawford as a potential fight next (according to Arum).

Manny's own fault for not disclosing an injury.  Can't make any excuses for him.  

 

Floyd won fairly easily from what I remember.  I'll re watch it.

 

Like I said, would love to see a rematch and what happens.

I enjoyed watching the Duran doc recently being shown on tv.  I am sure it's old but man boxing was a different beast in the late 70's and 80's.  I hope they make a doc on the 'four kings' of boxing in the 80's, hint hint ESPN.
