Truth need to be told. As for the ongoing situation, we may not be able to watch the biggest fight that we really want to happen. If this will happen, we are not sure on when probably not this year. A lot of questions were now raised as to why Mayweather doesn't want to fight the Pacman. There are rumors or maybe the truth that Mayweather is afraid to fight him, there are rumors that his father are not confident to fight a lefty, or his uncle will be going to jail, etc.... Whether these are just rumors or truth, still Mayweather should come out and tell the people what's the main reason for him not fighting Pacquiao. Is he really afraid of Pacquiao? What do you think about this? ..

Mayweather probably is. His camp has been doing delaying tactics for so long. They probably knew that Pacquiao would be his toughest fight in his whole career, and maybe Mayweather is afraid of tarnishing his win-loss card (has he lost yet? I don't remember). They're probably afraid that Pacquiao will be too strong for Mayweather to handle that's why they've been trying to create scenarios which will delay or postpone their match. Sorry, what's that about the uncle? I don't know the story...

His uncle Roger Mayweather was charged for beating Melissa St. Vil a boxer whom he'd trained before. There are seversl stories baout what was happened but police found Roger strangling Melissa and start coughing up blood after he released her from his choke hold. Though this is still on trial and the outcome will be known next month.

Heres the thing, all issues has now been resolved but mayweather is not saying anything. Says something about his bravery and pacmans determination to fight floyd huh? anyhows mayweather will probably get his perfect record not perrect after a match with pacman. he is not afraid of pacman, he is just afraid to get 1 loss from him.

Yes he is afraid but not in Pacquiao! He's afraid of losing, fear of being defeated by a opponent with a big heart. He knows Pacquiao doesn't fight just for himself, he knows he fight for his country, fans and for the whole boxing community! That is why he is afraid because if he lose...he loses big time and he'll be a laughingstock of the boxing world.

Mayweather have a lot of excuses in mind just to get away from fighting Manny. Its just simple.. He is afraid that Manny Pacquiao can stain his good record.. and just not that.. he is afraid that pacquiao can knock him out. thats all.

i believe he is afraid of Pacman. Otherwise, the fight would be on. There's no excuse. Whatever his reasons are, he can't deny the fact that he (again) has avoided a fight with Pacman.

perhaps not because Pacman always has he's will power to win over Mayweather and I believe they have the same goal to win.Let's just see whose going to won the battle between the two fighter.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. knows he cannot defeat Manny Pacquiao on the ring, so he is using time and his malicious mouth to avoid history and preserve his no-loss status.

I think Mayweather is a coward. He is afraid that he might get defeated by Manny Pacman. He is just a swagger and I don't think he deserves the fight. Manny Pacquiao is way far more better than him. He can not defeat manny pacquiao.

As the situation goes by, absolutely Floyd GAYWEATHER Jr. was afraid to Manny PACMAN Pacquiao. Why? 1. Manny Pacquiao agreed to Olympic style Random Blood Testing... but what happened Gayweather made an alibi. Floyd not agreed to 50-50 reward instead 60-40... owws common. 2. Manny agreed for 60-40 but once again Gayweather makes an alibi.. his uncle Roger was had a problem about woman abuse. common GAYWEATHER.....

i do think he is. he's come up with all sorts of malicious stories about pacquiao that only a cowardly person would be capable of. i also think he doesn't want to risk it because his record is spotless and that's the point his father uses for most of his debates with people regarding the comparison between him and pacquiao. anyway, the people's champ doesn't need to prove anything anymore, he's already accomplished so much that mayweather won't even dare dream for himself.

Yes, I think he knows there is a good chance he will lose in a fight with Pacquiao. And since Pacman will be retiring soon, why risk ruining his record when he can just sit back and wait for Pacman to retire? Afterwards, he can begin to reclaim the pound-for-poound title for himself.
