Believe the Hype: Pacquiao to Fight Mayweather

12/02/2009

The boxing world’s collective heads are exploding as Floyd Mayweather Jr. has signed on to fight Manny Pacquiao March 13, 2010.  The always crotchety Bob Arum will promote the fight, but little else is known in regard to location and payday.  This fight will probably shatter records for Pay-per-view buys and pundits will expound on the importance of this fight in the annals of modern boxing.

Spoiler alert:

This fight is going to suck.  It took me a long time to appreciate Mayweather because he is so damn boring to watch.  Mayweather gets into a ring and throws five punches per round while running circles around his opponent the rest of the time.  Mayweather has never faced an opponent any where near Pacquiao in pedigree or class, so expect him to run more than ever.  I imagine Pacquiao may be able to catch him at some point, hopefully resulting in a knockout that would be the best thing boxing fans could hope for.  Stay tuned for further details.
