Floyd Mayweather, You're a Frat Boy! Stop Screwing Around with 50 Cent and Just Fight Manny Pacquiao Already.

If you've been wondering why Floyd Mayweather has, for the past two years, been unable to come to terms with Manny Pacquiao for a fight which could gross $100 million — or is that $150 million? — then take a look at this bit from HBO's pre-fight publicity series, Mayweather vs. Ortiz 24/7, as part of the buildup for his September 17 match with Victor Ortiz.

Ask yourself what a man who could be on the verge of the biggest payday in boxing history is doing sitting around with 50 Cent making frat boy humor.

Or does it really qualify as humor? The stacks of cash were the lad's winnings from a bet on preseason football games — and nothing screams "Gambling Addiction" like somebody who wagers stacks of green on preseason football.

Is Floyd trying to tell us that he's been ducking Manny because he doesn't need the money?

Sorry, Floyd, wrong number.

What you're holding up to your ear is chump change compared to what you'd get for lasting one minute with Pacquiao — if you still have enough left to last that long.

Try laying off preseason NFL and putting some of that cash down on your own ass in the fight everyone wants to see.

Cmon, everybody knows maynever is the main culprit from why this fight is not happening. These floydiots are the only ones deluding themselves into thinking otherwise. Mainstream media, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Examiner, etc. hell even other sports stars are criticizing, Michael Irvin, James Toney, Marvin Hagler, etc. They all think he is a coward.

I love how all Floydiots delude themselves into thinking that Floyd isn't at least partially responsible for "the fight" not happening. There was a second round of negotiations in the summer of 2010. In fact, even ex-HBO Sports head honcho, Ross Greenburg (who has close ties to Mayweather manager, Al Haymon) confirmed there was. Mayweather's reaction? "No negotiations ever took place". Ummmmmm...okay, Floyd.

In the LA presser for the upcoming Mayweather-Ortiz fight, Floyd proclaims, "Pacquiao, you're next!" A few days later, at his gym in Las Vegas, he was asked by a reporter about his recent comment calling out Pacquiao. Floyd responds with this gem: "I never said that Pacquiao was next."

The problem with his denial: he was caught on video both times. There are so many lies and half-truths coming out of Floyd's mouth, I don't think even he knows what's up.

"It hasn't taken Floyd anytime to agree to fight"? As I said, delusional.

Another writer who doesn't know WTF their talking about!   Floyd would beat the Pancit out of Manny Pacquiao and he knows it!  This fight isn't happening because Bob isn't going to let Manny fight Floyd until he's ready to let Manny lose!  Marquez might do it, Floyd will do it for sure. It hasn't taken Floyd anytime to agree to fight, it's taken Manny two years to say "there are no more issues with my blood"!

yes i agree with u jason, any way technically Marquez bet Pacquiao and Floyd bet Marquez so Pacquiao don't have a chance against Maywheather. Pacquiao is afraid of Money Maywheather.

HAHAHA...I can't believe the "Marquez beat Pacquiao" + "Floyd beat Marquez" = "Floyd will beat Pacquiao" argument actually got one "like". If anything, boxing is probably the best sport to use to disprove that notion.
