Pacman Makes It Personal: Floyd Will Bear Brunt of Ire Over Sr.’s Steroid Allegations

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is already reportedly on his way to the Philippines to personally deliver the terms of the contract for the proposed superfight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., for Manny Pacquiao’s green light signal.

For all the business and historical ramifications of this highly-anticipated fight, this time around the motivation may be personal for the Pacman.

Comments (62)|13 Liked It

Pacquiao-Mayweather or Mayweather-Pacquiao, however you may want to call it, makes so much sense business-wise that promoters on both sides were reportedly pleasantly surprised that negotiation went so smoothly with basically just the minor points in the promotion left to be ironed out in the weeks ahead. What was initially expected to be a tough clash of egos turned out to be a walk in the park as a simple 50/50 revenue-sharing proposition was already adequate to make both sides happy enough to clinch the deal. After all, it wouldn’t make sense either way if both camps allow a mere few percentage points get in the way of them making the biggest purses of their career even with just a 50/50 split: an expected take home pay in the vicinity of upwards of 40 million dollars for each, in a bout that is widely expected to top even the De La Hoya-Mayweather record-breaking numbers of 2007.

Veteran sports journalist Ronnie Nathanielsz reported in an article posted in Philboxing.com that after just a week or so of formal negotiations with Golden Boy Promotions’ CEO Richard Schaefer who is negotiating in behalf of Mayweather Promotions, Top Rank’s Bob Arum is already on his way to the Philippines to personally deliver the contract for Pacquiao’s signature. The veteran promoter is expected to arrive in Manila by Thursday morning (Manila Time) although it wasn’t confirmed in the report if the Mayweather fight would be happening on March 13th or in September of next year. Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports and Ben Thompson of FightHype.com however reports that March 13 is the penciled date for the fight based on information provided to them by their inside sources.

Historical implications also abound in this fight as the victor will offer proof beyond reasonable doubt that he truly is the rightful owner of the mythical pound-for-pound title which both fighters are staking their claim right now. The winner would also be likely taking the best fighter of the decade honor and would make a very strong case for the best fighter of this era as well.

Green Monster Has Snowball Effect

Already among the most anticipated fight in decades, the super-hot match-up between unbeaten American Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. (40-0, 25 KOs) and Filipino fighting pride Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs) makes so much sense economically and historically that it’s almost unthinkable that another angle could give either fighter even more motivation going into the fight.

    This Old ugly Mouthweather Sr. should be given lessons by putting him in jail while the Mouthweather Jr. Should be punished in the ring with their accusers like the ” frustraeted Cintron ” and Loser Malignaggi . Looks like an empty drums … to much noise and irritation and in the end … useless , stinks and a disgrace in boxing community .

    With the pac-cotto fight, pac was actually the one asking bayless in the latter rounds to stop the fight. He was genuinely concerned with cotto\’s well being. I watched the fight again, and I saw several instances where pacquiao had the opportunity to follow up his combinations but hesitated. Pacquiao, as brutal as the beating was, was just doing his job as a fighter. nothing personal with cotto. With mayweather, it will be something personal. I sense no mercy will be shown and if there will be a beating, it will be something that pacquiao will enjoy. I just hope pacman decapitates this asshole.

    Uncle Bob’s visit is not for contract signing. This story is only a ploy for floyd’s team so he will not be called “coward of the decade” perhaps, “coward of the century”. It is more reliable that floyd will fight mathew hatton earlier next year.. pacman once again reiterate that there will be no fight before the may 10 election. Bob just want to see pacman’s situation so he could decide which date pacman will be ready for floyd. Pacman quoted as saying that we will fight floyd anytime, anywhere but we will not rush!

    Here in the Philippines you can get killed by merely staring at someone or by just singing “My Way” and even “Nobody.” And to think that Floyd Sr. is bismirching the good name of Manny Pacquiao in every turn in any interview. I just coudn’t imagine what will happen to his son when the fight time comes in the hands of “Hurricane Manny.” It would be a total devastation.

    For this I would bet for an stoppage, an early stoppage even because of the fury of ill-feelings that Manny brings in the ring.

    Thought to ponder: Pacquiao comes into the ring smiling, then erases the smile in the ring to serve a brutal public beating to any fighter standing opposit him. Come to think of a Pacquiao with a grim angry face half jogging into the ring and finally entering the ring staring down at Floyd like a king cobra staring into a corn snake. SCARY thought… RUN Floyd, RUN!!!

    undoubtedly manny’s skills as a toe to toe fighter is superb. this fight is exciting because floyd has the style that can beat manny and manny also has the style that can beat floyd. this is a fight that is very exciting because it is pretty evenly matched and you go and watch the fight not knowing who’s gonna win. i think it would be stupid to question either fighters skills. both are very skilled in different ways. floyds style might not be to bash his opponents head in but it is still fun to watch. manny is definitely more exciting but that does not equate to him winning this match. i am a big pacman fan and will watch this fight to support him but floyd is no sitting duck. both fighters have skillsets that can take them to greatness. i just hope that we could those skills against each other. floyd is like magic johnson on the ring beating you with rebounds and assists. pacman is like jordan jamming the ball in your throat. both jordan and bird are all time greats. so are floyd and pac. my prediction for this fight? if manny can connect within the first 5 rounds floyd is out by round 10. if floyd is able figure him out for the first 5 rounds, its gonna be floyd by UD.

    there’s the rumors that Mayweather has been training already for a fight in Britain. This could easily be a bluff to put the pressure on Pacquiao so he can say “Well, I agreed to fight PAcquiao but he didn’t want to so I’m moving on to fight someone else.” Like I stated, nothing has been disclosed on the terms of the contract Mayweather agreed to. This may very well just be an initial offer and a long winding negotiations process is likely to follow, but with the move, Mayweather strategically put the pressure on Pacquiao and again got him some publicity that he can use for a possible fight in England.

    Their is no way that undefeated Mayweather is going to lose to Pacman. Mayweather could care less if manny is upest, has magic bean, or has visited the wizard of oz. The fact remains that he is to fast, to skilled, and to flashy for manny. He has never face a fighter with swagger, which he has zero.

    I read to other article ” pacman vs mayweather isn’t happen, then its wrong, read this, “If our fight happens… maybe he should warn his son that there will be some lingering ill-feelings there because of his accusations”, manny will give away some pies to make it happen and BANG.

I know Manny’s cultural background as I live not so far from his hometown and what makes this fight scary for Mayweather is that this fight is personal for Manny and he might send Floyd to ICU.

Didn’t anybody heard of bizarre things that happens in the Philippines? People there are killed even just of simple things like singing “My Way” out of tune in a karaoke/videoke bar! The Pacqman may say “it’s not personal”, but don’t listen to this Pinoy camouflage , because when you go below the belt, it’s as personal as heaven and hell! Dela Hoya survived because he was Manny’s idol. Cotto was a good sport and he was spared. But Mayweather? With all of Floyd senior’s trash-talking? Oh, no… they don’t know these warriors from Southern Mindanao….legends say that the .45 caliber pistol was specially made for more stopping power against the warriors in Mindanao during the American occupation of the Philippines in the early 1900’s.

Pacman did say that he is going to inflict pain at Mayweather and this isn’t like the kind of pain Pacman normally inflicts on his opponents.. this is something more dreadful if you love life.. i dont want to be Mayweather when they face inside the ring.. that’s truly scary.. i still love my life..

    knowing pac though, he’s a man of God, and it would be very unlikely for a God fearing person to implicate unbearable punishment, even if the “game” calls for it. i, too have reviewed over 3 times his fights with OLDH and Cotto and have seen multiple instances where he could’ve given them a beating that would’ve put serious threat to their health, but he sort of “pulled” his punches and even paused for a second just to check if his opponent could still take more.

    that being said, after all that’s been said by the mayweathers, i still feel that pac, when given the opportunity, should give mayweather jr the beating of a lifetime. i hope this time around, he does not hold back, and then maybe, just maybe, the mayweather will have a rude awakening that lil floyd ISN’T the best fighter and floyd sr. is no “great trainer” that he seems to think he is.

    i say give li’l floyd a beating the whole fight (let’s give him a couple rounds to his credit, respect for his skills .. that way) and KNOCK HIM OUT (cold .. preferrably) 30 secs remaining in the 12th. oh, POETIC JUSTICE!

    Posted December 3, 2009 at 1:39 pm

    oh and if Floyd Sr, insists on his “dopeshizs” BS after the fight? put him in the ring against pac right after the fight, give him a round or two so he feels first hand what its like to be hit with gloves that carry a whole country’s fury. maybe then he’ll understand why pac punches so hard. ( “guy can’t hit me in my sleep”?? “guy can’t fight”?? ooooh i love to see these words shoved down Sr.’s throat by pac himself. )

    oh and if its not too much to ask why not throw in maglinaggi and centrin (?? who the hell’s this kid anyways .. seriuosly .. anybody know him??) on a tag team, geeez … i bet if master freddie didn’t have parkinson’s, he’d beat these two nitwits silly even at his age now.

    To all the morins that know nothing about boxing lets examine the facts that can not be disputed. Mayweather is undefeated and Pacman suffered a 3rd round KO to unknown Rustico Torrecampo in 1996. Mayweather, who is undefeated would never be KO by an unknown boxer. Mayweather is undefeated for a reason because he is that good.Pacman also loss to another unknown unranked boxer by the name of Medgoen Singsurat by KO in 1999, anyone every heard of these guys, see the pattern. Pacman had split decisions in other fights which am not going to waste my time saying who they were against. Also he was knocked on his ASS by Juan Marquez an over aged boxer that Mayweather domintated. The obvious conclusion is that Pacman is out of his league.Theres good and then theres Great. Pacman record of 50 wins, 3 defeats, and 2 draws does not qualify as Great, but Mayweather undefeated record in today’s time is unheard of. Mayweather is faster, stronger, quicker, almost has a 5” reach advantage , and did I mention that he’s UNDEFEATED. Advantage Mayweather, CHECKMATE, ENOUGH SAID, GAME OVER, HATERS.

    I have read some of the comments that Pacman will KO Mayweatherbecause of his awesome puching power. If Pacman attempts to brawl against Mayweather he will lose badly. Mayweather is a skilled and very techincial fighter that has excellent defensive anc counter ablilities. Pacman should concentrate on increasing his techincial boxing skills because he will not be able to brawl and muscle a fighter with the experience and skills of Mayweather. Cotto landed servial good punches to Pacman head, one that busted his eardrum because he was standing toe to toe giving and recieving punches by the guidence of the his trainer Roach (what type of game plan is that). Mayweather is going to give punches but get out the way so that he does not recieve punches in return. Pacman does have power but you cant hit whats not there. Bruce Lee said Boards dont punch back, impling that anyone can beat an opponent that does not hit back. Pacman is making the right the decision to go into politics and make movies because Mayweather will end his career. Pacman has won 7 titles but all against boxers that no one can recall their names. My advice to Pacman develope some rhythm, take some dance classes to help with your foot movements, and listen to some Hip Hop when you train it will help you with your head movement so you want be a sitting duck. If you can gain rhythm you may stand a chance but if you continue with the Rocky approach your going to get knock on your ASS. Stick and move , Stick and move and step your game up. Become a total boxer and not one dimensional.

    yo vitayl … as much as i respect your opinion about pac getting beat by these two no-namers, may i remind you that these fights were made before freddie roach reshaped and restructured pac’s talent, and please don’t come up with pac getting all 7 belts from unknown champions, if you don’t know erik morales, or marco antonio barrera, or juan manuel marquez ( pac DID beat him … knocked him down a coupl’a times too .. if i remember it right ) david diaz, ricky hatton, oscar de la hoya, and recently, miguel cotto, i can’t imagine what kind of a boxing fan you are! all of these fighters are nearly inducted in boxing’s hall of fame, some actually might be there already!

    i guess what my fellowmen are trying to get to is, please stop discrediting our modern-day hero PAC, i mean he’s been doubted over and over again going up in weight and fighting bigger guys, but he has proven himself worthy, victorious each and every time. this guys trains like a monster, works like a machine to get to where he is now, and to have someone discredit him for what he does and what he has done, is just downright foolish (forgive the term). i give respect to mayweather for what he has accomplished as well, but in all honesty, once faced with a properly trained, best shaped pacquiao, i don’t think he will have the upper hand, it may very well be the toughest fight for pac but then again it is in one’s toughest adversary that makes him dig deep and drives himself to do everything in his ability to emerge victorious.

    and if he does win, i won’t expect you to switch sides, but please, be man enough to give credit where it is due.

    Well said PacFan. Everybody, Mayweather and Pacman fans alike let’s just give credit where credit is due. Mayweather is a 40-0 undefeated fighter possessing excellent skills but hasn’t really taken an opponent worthy of testing those skills to the limit, at least in the last 5 years while Pacman is the whirling dervish who barreled through multiple weight divisions by beating supposedly bigger and better fighters to claim an unprecedented seven titles in seven weight divisions.

    May the best man win on fight night now that it’s being reported that both sides have already agreed in principle to fight on March 13th after Arum’s recent trip to the Philippines.

    To vtay12007, You can beat all of your money for the trash talking man of yours, we will also do ours for Manny. Let’s just wait what’s gonna happen.
    However, deep inside me I still believe this fight won’t happen, your man is just too scared to lose is “0″.
    Look at the face of your man when he was confronted by Mosley after the Marquez bout. He was too scared he did not even utter a word. Just observe his face very closely, you will see what I mean. That’s why many call him the Gayweather.

    Floyd Mayweather, Sr is just talking about trash. He just can’t accept that Pacquiao is a great and legendary boxer. And that his son is a boring boxer.

    After reading all the comments, OMG
    I have nothing more to add. Except, PBF will surely be too scared to go on with the fight.

    “x x x Pacman has won 7 titles but all AGAINST BOXERS THAT NO ONE CAN RECALL THEIR NAMES. My advice to Pacman develope some rhythm, take some dance classes to help with your foot movements, and listen to some Hip Hop when you train it will help you with your head movement so you want be a sitting duck. If you can gain rhythm you may stand a chance but if you continue with the Rocky approach your going to get knock on your ASS. Stick and move , Stick and move and step your game up. Become a total boxer and not one dimensional.” [Capitalizations mine for emphasis]. —
    —-OMG! I thought I have nothing more to say. From what planet did you come from, Mr?
