Somebody already asked about this here some 5 months ago.
And still there is no light at the end of the tunnel for a match between these two guys?
What do you think of this two ever hapenning?
And what do you think of the idea that fans should just force the issue and have Manny take the tests and stop Floyd from making some other demands?
Good fight. Skillwise, Floyd has more. However, Pacquiao has a lot of the intangibles and stylistic problems that works well against Floyd's style. Pacquiao is a southpaw with more power, more speed, more pressure, more skill, and more consistency than Zab Judah. All that alone makes him a very live dog in a fight against Floyd Mayweather or anybody 147 and down.
Mayweather all day every day - If Pac decides to come clean and take some perfectly reasonable drug tests
ya cuz lil scrawny pacman is on roids lol!!! Pacman would destroy merryweather. hes to quick and to poerful for floyd. Floyd hasnt fough a guy with mannys spead in years.
Pacquiao would beat Floyd anyday which is why Floyd doesnt want to fight him!
Aint gonna ever happen, Floyd's rumoured to prefer fighting security men rather than prime pound for pound fighters ;-)
Everyone is thinking incorrectly on this issue. Boxers who are on roids, some of them who even admitted it, have all mysteriously been cleared. Freddie Roach coached other fighters on steriods and claimed not to know anything like with James Toney. I love the sport but let's admit it, it's corrupt and there's a lot going on we don't know. Everyone knows steroids are taken in cycles; when you know when your test is, only fools or people who didn't time their cycle correctly get caught.
Pacquiao used to go head to head with Marquez and Morales, and has been dropped to the canvass by them. Now he left that class, jumped up 8 weight divisions and is knocking out welterweights. There are several pro boxers and trainers who are convinced Pacquiao has been cycling steroids. I'm not saying he is, but to blast Mayweather's request isn't fair.
Mayweather is smart---he'd never be the next fool up to bat. For Floyd to request an outside body to perform random testing was totally intelligent and justified. Instead of looking at the writing on the wall, everyone instead started complaining about Mayweather. All when Pacquiao mysteriously turned down the biggest pay out of his life just to avoid a random blood test that would keep him honest.
Everyone is a blind Pacquiao fan, and everyone hates Floyd. That's all there is to this issue. Regardless, Mayweather isn't Margarito, Clottey or a washed up Dela Hoya. Every time Floyd's been hated on and walked in the ring, he walked out with another W and the other fighter walked away with a boxing lesson and a new found respect. You don't have to love him, but give the man his respect or you're in for surprise if and when they do bang it out.

After Pacquiao won his his nth fight last night, the next is the much awaited fight with Mayweather. Will this happen? The world is waiting for the "fight of the century" if that happens.....

The fight is said to be coming in March 2010, I am wondering what people think about it? I think Floyd wins Via a 12 round unanimous decision.

Defense wins fights in general so I'll go with Floyd but to be honest I'll pulling for Manny and he does have a chance!
