Finally! The time for talk is over. No more crying about Floyd being afraid, and no more bitching about Manny being willing to take a drug test. The time for talk is done…Finally.
The entire boxing world (Hardcore and Casual fans included) has been waiting roughly six years for this to come to fruition. We have had to sit through Pacquiao matches with Hatton, Cotto, Clottey, Margarito, Mosley, Marquez, Bradley, Marquez, Rios, Bradley, and Algieri. We endured Mayweather’s parade through Marquez, Mosley, Ortiz, Cotto, Guerrero, Alvarez, and two Maidana’s. Whew! That was torturous.
Torturous, because with every overwhelming victory, we all waited for the pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow. We all hoped the NEXT fight was going to be Mayweather/Pacquiao. Even after Marquez knocked Pac Man cold, we all thought Floyd would want him now. Nope! After Floyd danced circles around the southpaws Ortiz and Guerrero, we thought he had his tune up and was ready. We were so wrong. Hell, I waited for both to come jumping out of Katie Perry’s Grand MGM Lion during The Super Bowl Halftime. Damn, we were all wrong!!
Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao waited until the moment was just right. In the words of the late Great trainer Angelo Dundee, “It had to be juicy enough!” Money and Pac Man fooled all of us. They found the perfect time to announce the fight. When everyone else was bitching and complaining they are going to be too old or fans won’t care, or my favorite, they are destroying boxing; Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao one upped the entire world and made the biggest fight of this era happen. If you don’t believe it is big:
Pay Per View prices are allegedly going to be $89.99 and $99.99 for HD. Tickets in the MGM Grand’s nose bleed section are allegedly going to be well above $1,000 and ringside seats….well, if you have $50,000 to blow – call me!!! This is what happens when the biggest fight in the world takes place. You get what you pay for, and this is the premium fight we wanted. It is worth the mortgage on the house, or the loan from the scrupulous gentleman in the dark alleyway. This is the big time. This is Ali-Frazier I or Leonard-Hearns I. This is what we have been begging for six years. Now, we have it!! A fight that will leave you hoarse at the end, and shaking with sheer excitement and nervousness in the beginning. This is what Boxing is all about!!
Thank You Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao for restoring everyone’s faith in the sport of Boxing!!
Let’s Get Ready To Rumble…wait or Is It SHOWTIME!! Who gives a @$@#ck? Mayweather and Pacquiao are fighting….FINALLY!
