Pacquiao to reset fight

Manny Pacquiao (nytsyn)

Manila, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao is in a quandary as to the date of his next fight.

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum has penciled the date April 12, 2014 and Pacquiao approved it until somebody very dear to him asked him not to proceed.

You see, Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee is due to give birth to their fifth child “in the second week of April,” according to the Filipino fighter, who is now looking at the possibility that his return to the ring be moved to a later date.

Told that Floyd Mayweather is scheduled to fight on May 3 in Las Vegas, Pacquiao grinned and said “that would be a perfect date.”

Mayweather is shopping for an opponent and British Amir Khan and Argentine Marcos Maidana are said to be the frontrunners to land a lucrative payday although Pacquiao’s name continues to be mentioned.

    The media should do its share in pressuring Floyd to fight Manny for the good of the sport. I do not really care who wins as long as they fight. If Floyd keeps making excuses, then he should just be treated like the WWE champions whose titles are all for show.

    Manny should just do a press conference and call out Floyd to fight him on May 3. This way if he turns him down, the whole world will know.

    I have a great idea with regards for the “Fight of the Century” which the World Boxing Council (WBC) will have to schedule by hook or by crook as the WBC is the governing body in this category, so by official function, it is their duty to grade Boxers accordingly as they see the talents under their wings, since they named a Champion, they also grade and do the Ratings in accordance to their past performances, so they had Rated Manny Pacquiao as the No. one Challenger with regards to his awesome scores from the fight with Bam-Bam Rios of USA, so he got the right to challenge the Champion in their category and if the Title Holder denied the fight to be scheduled in the nearest date to settle the score, He will be stripped off his Championship Belt whether he likes it or not and the Title be Declared Vacant and to scheduled a Championship Bout for the next Rated Challengers…Drmjc.
