Mayweather Guilty of Robbing PPV Fans, Again.

Pacquiao and Mayweather, that’s all there is left. Pacquiao wants it. But does Mayweather?

Floyd “Money” Mayweather came out of retirement to give Juan Manuel Marquez a shot at becoming the champ. Mayweather claimed that Marquez was deserving of the chance, that he was the real number one contender. But the question must be raised: Was this fight out of pure respect for Marquez or for the sheer avoidance of Pacquiao?

No, Mayweather cannot take on Pacquiao directly out of retirement, but his hesitation in interviews about Pacquiao raises suspicion.

Mayweather easily defeated Marquez Saturday night in a typical Mayweather-style bout. Marquez went down in the second round when Mayweather smacked him with a hard left hook, igniting the spectators and increasing the chances of a rare Mayweather decision-by-knockout. But after that knockdown, Mayweather knew the scorecards. He stuck with jabs and defense the rest of the fight, making the bout as interesting as watching paint dry (unless you really understand and respect the sport of boxing). We know what kind of fighter Mayweather is, but for some reason you think the next fight will be different. You think, “hey, maybe Mayweather will pepper his ass until round 11 and then knock him out”. It actually happened Saturday, Mayweather peppered Marquez until the 11th when Marquez looked his weakest, but the knockout punch was never thrown.

Now, everyone who foolishly paid for Saturday night’s fight are left wondering if Mayweather will accept Pacquiao’s challenge. And contemplating whether to waste their money on pay-per-view.
