All roads lead to Floiyd Mayweather, Jr., indeed, as he proudly claims –
to send him a serious message.
Until Mayweather stops dodging Manny Pacquiao, drops his boundless
arrogant excuses and heeds the insistent popular clamor for him to fight
Pacman, no boxing fan in his right mind would be delighted to watch any
Mayweather bout whoever his opponent may be. And nothing can be better
for the sport of boxing.
It is reported that tickets are selling slow for the September 17 welterweight
contest between Mayweather and Victor Ortiz (compared to previous
Mayweather fights) just as it has been
that only Floyd’s
fanatical “legions” of fans and few innocent ones will watch the show.
The air is thick and heavy these days, but the silent protest over the “good”
boy of boxing gets even thicker and heavier. And if the situation persists,
expect boxing, amid thunderous showers and storms, to resurrect sooner
than anyone can think or imagine. Do yourself a favor.
On fight night, sweet dreams.
