Pacquiao-Mayweather bout, not happening again

pacquiao and mayweather

Yes boxing fanatics, you can sigh not because of relief but disappointment

The most anticipated fight of the year between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather slated in November may not push through again.

This was brought about after the camp of Mayweather remained mum to Pacquiao’s offer for a November 13 bout.

Mayweather had been given until Friday (Saturday, Manila time) to decide on Pacquiao’s offer that included those related to random Olympic-style drug testing. However Mayweather did not respond, which has given Pacquiao the freedom to look for other opponents. The 2 popular choice are Miguel Cotto or Antonio Margarito, which even Bob Arum has confirmed.

Meanwhile, it’s seems clearer now, that from the start, Mayweather does not really want to face Pacquiao. It was rather amusing to read articles of interviews with Mayweather, where he gets every opportune to thrash talk Pacquiao. In all fairness to Mayweather,placed in his shoes, who would want to see their career to be flushed in the drain just like that. 

So he chose to stay mum about it.
