Mayweather-Pacquiao fight should happen

Floyd Mayweather Jr. lives up to the hype and dispatch future hall of famer Shane Mosley in a relatively easy fashion. It was supposed to be Floyd’s hardest fight of his career but the 38 year old Mosley looks much his age as the fight was more of a sparring session than a close one except when Floyd was hit by a hard right in the second round. Mosley was breathing hard and his punches are out of sting as round by round Floyd fought in a masterful fashion. It wasn’t that Mosley is over trained when he trained for months on his supposed fight against Andre Berto and was cancelled it was just Floyd being Floyd. He outhustled Mosley and lured him to fight on his game plan. Now after demolishing Mosley the only logical opponent for Floyd is Manny Pacquiao. It was supposed to be Floyd and Manny months ago but Floyd’s immediate demand for random blood testing put a halt on their discussion then the Mosley fight surfaced. Will Pacquiao and Mayweather fight happen? There is still hope but the cloud of doubt still lingers between them.
Random Blood Testing
“If Manny Pacquiao can take a blood and urine test, then we have a fight,” Mayweather said. “If not, no fight.” Manny has already agreed to take the test under the commission’s request but not to Floyd’s demands. So if Floyd is really sincere about the random testing then he will just simply ask for the commission to do extra testing on blood and urine. It’s that simple.
Fight Purse
Now this is an intriguing factor that dictates the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. Floyd will be pushing a 60-40 purse split because he believes he is the cash cow between him and Manny but Manny will surely contend to that knowing he is the pound per pound king and will demand a 50-50 for Floyd. Toprank and Goldenboy could make some concession and offer both parties a 45-45 purse split with the winner taking the 10 percent.
This would be the biggest and most anticipated fight the world is waiting for and both fighters can cash in 30 million each. There is no other matchup for both fighters and the only thing that this could work is for one to bend down and give in. This fight should happen and it should happen…Because it’s the only logical way to put an exclamation point on their already brilliant legacy.
