What gives Floyd?

It has come to my personal understanding that newly-minted Philippine Congressman Manny Pacquiao gives ersatz undefeated Floyd Mayweather an extremely bad case of heebie-jeebies.

Floyd’s clinical dismantling of Shane Mosley further fanned the fires of the mega-fight of mega-fights to finally happen.  Add to that the ease our National Fist was able to achieve victory in his second foray into Philippine politics by beating the stuffings out of his opponents on the way to being officially christened as Congressman Manny.

The true pound-for-pound best fighter of the decade, obviously Pacquiao, even finally agreed to allow Olympic style blood testings up to the limit of 14 days prior to fight night which the Mayweather camp was vehemently trying to impose.

Congressman Manny

When we all thought everyone across the globe who were praying to the high heavens to allow the PacMan-Moneyweather fight to happen could breathe a collective sigh of relief and start the celebrations that signal the looming event, Mayweather, once again, decides to throw another monkey wrench into the now smooth and humming engine of Pacquiao-Mayweather fight.

What a cream puff.

His camp is reportedly now asking for the Olympic style blood testing to be allowed to be done up until fight night itself.  WTF???

His camp, which was, for several months now, preaching that this is a fight that not only the boxing world is vociferously demanding, but the entire earthly populace itself is drooling to happen, is now doing a U-turn and is presenting a fresh new set of alibis and whining reasons for it NOT to happen.

Aside from that, Mayweather, oversized ego and all, after decisioning both Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez (winning because of the judges’ scorecards…whoop dee doo), suddenly decides that he should get a bigger purse and not the pre-ordained 50-50 pot (which I personally believe shortchanges Pacquiao).

Wuss fight

Pacquiao, who bulldozed his way through several opponents via stoppages (the Clottey fight was a farce and doesn’t count because it was obvious that the Ghanian was in it for the money and not the win) doesn’t even meddle in the negotiations and just lets his promoter, the ever so eloquent Bob Arum, do the purse fighting for him.  A mark of a true professional.

I’m a Filipino and all you naysayers can say that this blog entry truly is biased, but heck, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that one of these fighters obviously is overflowing of cowardice and whining alibis.

Just when everything seems to be ironed out already, here’s these set of morons once again trying to find reason for the fight not to happen.

If you truly believe that you’re the number one fighter in the world today, why hide behind lame excuses?  The Congressman is ready now, and you’re not anymore?

What gives Floyd??
