Floyd Mayweather scared to fight Manny Pacquiao

WBO World Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2)  has agreed to fight Antonio Margarito (38-6) on November 13, 2010. Manny accepted the fight after Floyd Mayweather (41-0) refused to the much-anticipated title bout scheduled for the same day.

Manny still wants to fight Mayweather. “Whatever he wanted to do, we were accepting it.” referring to Mayweather’s demands for extra drug tests and promotional preference for the fight. Manny adds “I want to fight. Ill agree to anything.”

Floyd Mayweather is a disgrace to Americans and specifically African-Americans. Boxers are public representations of their nationality and race. Manny Pacquiao, who is now a congressman for the Philipines, understands this perfectly and has even put on weight to fight anyone put in front of him.

As an “American” Floyd should want to be the best of the best and that means fighting Manny who is the #1 pound for pound boxer in the world. Floyd complains about a lack of appreciation by boxing fans, but how are we suppose to appreciate the boxer if he is scared to put his undefeated record on the line.

The irony of it all is that Floyd Mayweather does represent America and African-Americans. Floyd is scared to lose hs undefeated record because his marketing contracts and promotions are directly tied to it.

Money, money, money, Me, me, me.

We are slowly becoming Greedy and Selfish people who have no authentic respect or love for what we do.
