Mayweather and Pacquiao: Let's get it on!

By Alon Calinao Dy: How far do you believe that a fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao is going to happen next year?

It may be over now if they have fought years ago, but the hype is too much already. At this moment, I don't like to talk about it because I don't see any development of the possible mega-fight.

Floyd Mayweather Jr, an American undefeated fighter, has no intention to challenge his real threat - eight-division world champ Manny Pacquiao. 

For unknown reasons,  I don't know why he can't gamble his perfect record. It doesn't matter whether a boxer has a zero loss or five defeats, just as long as he is doing his best to bring out the battle that everyone wants to see. For me, he is the true champion.

For Pacquiao and Mayweather, they have to meet in the ring in 2015. I know both camps have high egos, but it's not going to work out this way if they continue to ignore the demands of boxing fans from around the world.

So for boxing to survive in the near future, let's get it on. Let's have the biggest fight of the century. Let's see who is the greatest fighter that we all want to acknowledge or take pride when our children might ask us - who is the best?
