Pacquiao vs Mayweather: A Beautiful Competition Planned…But Will it Happen?

Pacquiao vs Mayweather is a highly anticipated fight. Pacquiao and Mayweather may or may not meet up, if reports are any indication of what is going on.  The fight is hanging by a thread that centers on the issue of drug testing.

Mayweather wanted Olympic Style drug testing performed by the US Anti Doping Agency.  The Pac Man doesn’t want that much blood drawn right before his match, as he feels it will weaken him.  However, Pacquiao agreed to urine drug tests and blood tests after the fight was over.

The tension between the fighters mounted even further when Pacquiao announced that he planned on suing Mayweather for defamatory statements. Mayweather’s camp has indicated that they are willing to accept drug tests that are less than Olympic style. Whether or not the fighters can agree to the terms isn’t yet known.

Could the tension be a way for promoters to build up the fight? Can you imagine the bankroll if everyone purchases the fight on pay per view?

Manny Pacquiao was voted “Second Best Fighter of All Times”, and was second only to Sugar Ray Robinson. He was voted best in his class.

Individuals on both sides of the argument are pumped for a fight.  Pac Man fans want to see him pulverize Mayweather.  Mayweather fans want to see him put his opponent in his place.  Who will win? Will the fight will occur? We will find out sometime in the first week in January.
