Now that Floyd “Pretty Boy” Mayweather has announced he is back, fans are hoping once he destroys Marquez this Summer he will sign a contract with Manny Pacquiao. Unfortunately, the measuring stick is Ricky Hatton. It’s hard not to like Hatton with his legion of drunken singing fans, but he was outclassed in both fights. In fact, he is probably still hurting from Saturday’s mismatch against Pac-Man.
Floyd Mayweather walked away on top saying there was nobody left to beat, nothing left to accomplish, and that he had enough money for five lifetimes of overindulgence. Well, either he is broke, bored, or feels he must beat Manny Pacquiao to cement his legacy. I am going to say it is a combination of the three.
Pacquiao could care less as to why Mayweather is coming back, but he probably wants to sign a contract by 6:30 tonight. Pacquiao is the real deal, and it only took him two rounds to dispose of Hatton.
I have heard a November date is being targeted for this dream fight. I wouldn’t be so sure if it spilled over into early 2010 as both guys are going to want a fortune and percentage of the purse will be argued for awhile. The bout would almost have to be on pay-per-view due to the demand there will be and the money needed for these two worlds to collide.
First prediction you will see for this fight! I am going with Pacquiao simply because he is active and in top form now. Mayweather hasn’t fought since December of 2007 unless you count Wrestlemania 24 and is not in “game shape” right now. Manny Pacquiao will win by TKO in ten rounds.
