Will Mayweather vs Pacquiao be next?

Will Manny Pacquiao fight Floyd Mayweather next after yesterday’s exciting Manny Pacquiao Vs Antonio Margarito fight? Boxing fans are dying for this potential matchup after Pacquiao captured his eighth world title with the win over Margarito. But Mayweather doesn’t seem inclined to do it. Could it be the American is scared of the Filipino fighter?

That’s the rumor in boxing circles. In fact, the two were supposed to fight earlier this year, but it never happened in part because Mayweather was demanding a random drug test clause.

After yesterday’s fight, the trainer for Pacquiao, a father of four, called Mayweather out, saying if he didn’t fight his client, “we know this guy should retire.”

Mayweather is 41-0 in his career with 25 knockouts. Pacquiao is 52-3-2 with 38 knockouts.

What do you think – are you dying for this matchup? Do you think Mayweather is scared?

  3. Dan says:

    Boxing Fans knows Floyd is scared to fight Pacter P. The chance of him fighting Pac now is even more remote aftear Pac destroy Margarita.

  4. K.G. says:

    i dont think money is scared but i dont think he really loves boxing anymore and doesnt really want to fight

  5. reyvh says:

    not only Mayweather is scared to fight, he is building a bunker to hide. He can hide but he never can run. He is BRRAAAVVVVEEEEE, brave to use all alibis.

  6. Dan says:

    I think pacqquiao is juicing, that’s for sure.

  7. John R says:

    I am in no way a Floyd Mayweather fan but do feel that his entire corners legal trouble has a part to play in this. That being said, Floyd comes off as a fighter that is more intrested in having a zero loss record that actually fighting quality opponents where there is some risk. The risk is what makes you great. Floyd has repeatedly noted the records of other fighters that have wanted to fight him. He uses this to dismiss them as guys that are not worth his time. An excellent point was made during the final commentary last night. Floyd will wait until Manny has some more hard fought mileage on him then he’ll let the fight happen. You can make an excuse for every fighter Manny has beat over the past few years. Oscar was too old, Clottey doesn’t throw punches, Hatton is over-rated, Cotto lost something after the Margarito beating, and Diaz was a nobody. What makes all of that irrelevant is that he is destroying all of them. None of the fights were even close. At the end of the day I’m sure somewhere in the back of Mayweather’s head he knows this fight could be the fight that could actually prove what he has been claiming for years, that he is the greatest of all time, but being a guy who puts so much emphasis on his undefeated record rather than his competition I think he knows its a fight that can’t be won.

    after yesterdays fight margarito only leaves one thing he can really do the talk the talk but cant do the walk the walk.

  9. Mooks says:

    Floyd is scared Manny will knock his tampon off.

  10. Ghe says:

    @ Dan,
    Your sentenced don’t make a freaking sense. You said you think Pacquiao is juicing and then your sure his juicing…make up your mind dummy!!! are you sure or or you just think??? ;p

  11. SJ says:

    Mayweather is not scared. He will easily outbox Pacquiao.

  12. black david says:

    floyd is a big fat you know what. he is a disgrace to boxing.

  13. KJ says:

    Gayweather is a pussy and will only be known as the a coward of boxing.

  14. Travelmpq says:

    He’d rather go to jail for wife-beating than get a beating from Pacquiao.

  15. Vince says:

    SJ, do you even watch boxing? Mayweather is scared. Period.

  16. king says:

    It will be both of their hardest fights in they career but floyd doesn’t hit hard enough to beat pac and that will be the difference pac hit hard and he got stamina

  17. martin says:

    I would like to believe that gayweather put himself into a situation right now so as to make an alibi again not to fight manny. Hes busy beating girls! lol. His silence after all the people calling him to come out reminds me of saddam hussein hiding in a bunker not to be seen until he was caught. Better retire floyd or dug into your own bunker forever!.

  18. pound4pound says:

    poor gayweather, everybody hates him…i really want to watch that fight but scared gayweather is hiding!!!!

  19. Ms.Pacman says:
