Manny Pacquiao wasn't robbed when he fought Timothy Bradley; he got what he deserved.
For years, the world has been waiting to see the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao young man rumble in the middle of the ring, but it hasn't happened.
That's mainly because the two have been arguing about drug tests, blood tests and other types of tests, instead of stepping into the ring and fighting. This year, Floyd tried his hardest to book a Pacman fight on May 5th, before he went to jail and failed. Floyd failed because the Pacquiao team wanted an equal split of PPV money.
Ain't karma a bitch? Because after this weekend, I doubt anyone will buy a Pacquiao fight ever again.
Sure, Manny doesn't book his own fights, but his camp does and booking this fight was a complete knock out to his credibility and the credibility of the sport.
That's what they get for ducking the Money Team for fear that Ray J and Justin Bieber will show up and start singing in their living rooms. Now they need to man up.
The idea that Manny deserves the same pay as Mayweather is not only dumb; it's null and void now. He doesn't wow crowds like Floyd, he doesn't attract millions like Floyd, and he can't even seem to keep his own promotion in check to not steal the fight from him. Besides, don't we all want to see Floyd and 50 Cent have face conversations on their money phones during the build up to the fight?
Pacman, Mayweather and his gang of Filipino thugs are running a circus over there.
Manny vs. Floyd will happen and it should happen next. After Pacman swallows the bitter pill that his robbery was his own fault, like a rapper trying to walk through their enemy's hood without security, then maybe he can give up trying to make a fight nobody wants to see with Timothy Bradley. Instead, he can finally fight Floyd Mayweather and try to bring some credibility back to boxing.
