Manny Pacquiao Has No Immediate Plans to Fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The Manny Pacquiao/Miguel Cotto fight was shaping up to be an epic battle up until the 4th round when Manny caught Miguel with a right hand that sent him to the canvas for the second time in the fight. From that point on, it was pure dominance for the speedy, powerful Filipino. It got so bad that Cotto’s family had to leave the arena after the 9th round to avoid seeing Miguel get punished. The point is that Pacquiao proved he can step up in weight and not lose his quickness or power, making him one of the toughest fighters at 147. The other undisputed star at 147, and top pound for pound fighter in the world, is Floyd Mayweather Jr. Since the two are now in the same weight class, there’s no doubt they should fight to satisfy once and for all who is the best fighter in the world. But as you can tell Pacquiao is in no hurry to schedule a fight with Floyd where the negotiations would feature several roadblocks. Just listen to the Manny Pacquiao/Miguel Cotto post fight interview and skip ahead to the 1:05 mark to hear if Pacquiao has Floyd in his plans:

By the way, would somebody please tell A.C. Slater to take his finger out of his ear. And would somebody tell Slater that English isn’t Pacman’s primary language so it’s probably not a good idea to ask him 30 second questions with lots of big words. The guy just went 12 rounds with Miguel Cotto … give him a break, A.C.!
