Mayweather wants Pac at 154 lbs / 10oz gloves?

I read an article about Floyd demanding the fight be done at 154 with 10oz gloves. How low can you get to be able to get the upper hand on an already seemingly mismatched fight? I mean, come on Floyd Mayweather! Why does he need to demand a fight at 154 lbs against the naturally smaller Manny Pacquiao? Is he that scared to lose? and why does he want 10oz gloves over the regular 8oz gloves? Does he fear Pacquiao's power that much? I hope the fight details get ironed out soon, and I hope that they don't compromise to Mayweather's advantage. We would like to see a great fight. If Floyd beats Pac at 147lbs with 8oz gloves then my hat goes off to him (although he naturally has the advantage of being the bigger man). But if he fights Pac at 154 or with 10oz gloves, my respect to the guy would hit an all time low. Pac has proven time and again that he can overcome the "bigger guy beats smaller guy" theory and I am heavily rooting on Pac to win it over Floyd. Defeat the odds and shut the Mayweathers' mouths. (dad, son and uncle).

Floyd is afraid. He's not in any position to demand anything on this fight. He is claiming that he's the best boxer in the division. Proove it agints pacman. And since pacman is the champ with 7 difrent divisions. and the current puond for pound king. Floyd has nothing exept his big mouth. I say let floyd put his money were his mouth is.

Absolutely. The Mayweathers talk too much. He can't claim to be the best when he hasn't even fought the best in the division yet. All the fighters that can give him trouble, he has relentlessly ducked. Now Pac comes along, a naturally smaller fighter, his eyes sparkle, he thinks he can manipulate Pac like he did with Marquez, Guess again! Now these lame demands. Just Unbelievable.

Yeah all the excuses in the book the maywether father and son used it all. And why the heck are they demanding for something about the fight. They have no RIGHTS.. They are nothing in front of PACQUIAO at the moment. If im pacquiao I will never accept the 50/50 deal or anything coming from the demands of the challenger. Hell IM the champ and I'll be the one to agree? HELL NO! ahahaha

Pacman accepted the challenge because he wants to shut mayweather's mouth and all his team! they talk so much, always throws none sense words as if he is the best pound for pound fighter on the ring! well as you've said mayweather always running away from the great fighters that he knows he can't beat! now he sees Pac s small one, ting! he thought maybe he can knock him down on the floor! he'll be surprised! he's down lying flat on the floor and asking where I am father maywaether Sr.! hahahaha!

hi tokouchi We all know how Mayweather always try to get what ever advantage he could get when he fights. He sees that with Pacquaio he needs to soften the impact of Pacman's punches and with 10oz gloves that will do. He knows at 154lbs, like Marquez it will also slowdown Pacquiao. Bob Arum is right, the guys is afraid to lose his unbeaten record. What a shame?

cool reaction dude!! i agree. mayweather is a family of big mouths just to prove themselves that they know a lot and they are the winner. well, everybody still are entitled for their own opinions just as what i am doing now. just a hint, Pacquiao now is the king of the ring. now how dare mayweather sets the rules of the game when he is the one supposed to challenge Pacquiao and not the other way around. Pacquiao should dominate the rule of the game or at least, the decision should be nonpartisan. but who should still be followed and who shall make the offer of the price. don't you think?
