Hello Mr. Mayweather
How long is this going to continue? Come on dude, you are (47-0) and a five-time world champion. Do we need to ask Talia Shire to show up on a beach to act out that scene in Rocky III, where she asks you instead of Rocky what you’re afraid of? We want the truth. Is it his nicknames? The Mexicutioner? The Destroyer? Or Pacquiao’s vicious left hand?
For five and a half years Manny Pacquiao has pursued you like Clubber Lang. For a few years we all gave you the benefit of the doubt. It’s about getting a fair pay-day and each guy wants to make sure the other isn’t cheating, blah-blah-blah. More than once you have teased the world boxing audience with news that a fight was close. We all remember the reports in December of 2009, when you both allegedly first had a deal only to hear you tell FANHOUSE ”There are still some things to be negotiated”. We continue to twiddle our thumbs. Now you want Pac-Man to wear gigantic gloves or there is no deal. Are padded fat suits the next request?
Floyd, I thought the dancing, ducking, blocking, and dipping you displayed was incredible when you fought Oscar De LaHoya. You did receive the split decision in that fight, but I actually thought it could have easily been ruled a draw. I think Oscar landed more body shots than given credit for. Of course some analysts thought you did enough dodging and landing of strong combinations in later rounds to deserve a unanimous decision. For a guy that is known to have tremendous defense with a fast break offense whenever you choose it in the squared circle, your ability to avoid the fight in the first place is far more impressive.
Both you and Manny have defeated an awesome list of fighters. Both of you are world champions and could have fought a couple times by now and made huge money. Dude, you could be getting ready for a third pay day. I don’t get it. You have a strong jaw because you proved it when you fought Sugar Shane Mosley. You have the height and reach advantage over the Filipino Slugger. You have an even chance to win. If you lose, you can still get a re-match and get paid some serious lettuce. If you really are TBE (The best ever), show it. Or you can keep finding excuses and your legacy will be forever tarnished. At this point I’m ready for Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez to duke it out a fifth time.
