This is the question that boxing fans are starting to ask as Floyd Mayweather Jr. remains quiet whether he will accept an offer to fight Pacquiao this November going past the deadline set by Bob Arum for him to respond.
Bob Arum is set to pursue talks for a Pacquiao fight against either Miguel Cotto or Antonio Margarito.
Too bad, there appears to be no obstacle for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight prior to this development. Arum though is still leaving a small window open for Mayweather though even offering a possible explanation why Mayweather is not yet fighting Pacquiao.
Roger Mayweather, Floyd's uncle and trainer is said to be busy in relation to his upcoming trial where he is accused of assaulting a female boxer according to some reports.
Reasons, reasons. I am not buying it. Boxing fans want the Mayweather-Pacquiao match to happen. Not agreeing to this fight, damages Mayweather's reputation further. Even if Mayweather remains unbeaten, he needs to beat Pacquiao in order to be considered truly legendary someday.
And now a recent article (dated July 27) by Yahoo sports analyst for boxing Kevin Iole...Mayweather exposed as chicken.
