      A dream match of course, such as we have never seen since the hey days of Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Tommy Hearns, Marvin Hagler who never backed down in facing the very best and one another.

      But we now know that the fight that was scheduled for March didn't happen and the sad reality is there is a big possiblity that this dream fight will never happen at all.

      And worst, Floyd may still add another demand even after both camps accept a compromise in his initial blood tests demands. I still can't understand why he had to DEMAND that but what can we fans do?

      Anyway, we also know that Manny have his personal reasons not to take the tests too close to the fight and does not really need to take it in the first place.

      But knowing Manny fights for the fans, we the boxing fans might need to force both Floyd to stop him from making any more demands and for Manny to just take the test so that there will be no doubt on the minds of those who are doubting his abilities.

      An online petition does say that so that we the fans can maybe force them to just do it.

      (and so that this hub can still come true and the fight may still happen this year)
