Promoters Should Push Mayweather Jr. versus Pacquiao Fight


By Alon Calinao Dy: Floyd Mayweather is considered by his fans a highly talented boxer with zero defeat at the present, while Manny Pacquiao is an eight-division world champion who has five losses, but considered by most boxing fans as the best fighter of this era.

The only way to settle this issue between the Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions is to take away the pride and competition between these two big companies. I think this is one of the reasons why fans are not getting the fight they want to see in boxing. The best way to have a harmonious relationship is to talk and don’t point out fingers at each other. Do this for the love of boxing. In this way, more and more people will support the sport of boxing.

It is true that it is much easier to get angry at Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Manny Pacquiao for the reason that that they both have huge followers. One thing that I do not understand is that why fans have no control for this mega-fight, but only their promoters who decide what is best for their fighters.

Sometimes it is hard to easily forget the misunderstandings in the past. I am saying that both camps should have an open table and give honest feedback. In this way, they will be able to come up with a contract. I don’t like it when both promoters are having alibis why they can’t work together. It says about how genuine they are if they can have an agreement.

Until now, various boxing sites have different speculations about who is the better fighter between Mayweather and Pacquiao. I know I just can’t throw punches at Floyd or Manny, but let’s keep it real and wait for the right moment thay these boxing champions would finally face each other for the sake of boxing. I know promoters should be the ones to push this biggest bout, and they must listen to the cries of millions of boxing fans around the world.
