Why Floyd Mayweather will regret retiring without facing Pacquiao

Sooner or later, unbeaten champion Floyd Mayweather will retire from boxing for good but he may later regret having retired even if he remains unbeaten without facing Filipino boxing star Manny Pacquiao in the ring.
The thought that Mayweather will eventually retire with unblemished career record is a real possibility with the way he chooses his opponents.Mayweather is halfway to his six-fight contract with giant TV network CBS/Showtime and if he makes the right choice for his succeeding fights, he could keep his precious “0″ in his record book.But years later, he may regret not having fought Pacquiao, who is likewise contemplating retirement in about a year.Mayweather has been bragging about his unblemished career record, claiming he is the greatest and the best ever.But is he really the kind of champion that he wants to be? Undoubtedly he is a deserving champion, having fought 46 pro fights without a single loss.Still Mayweather cannot just say or claim that he is the best or even better than the legendary Muhaammad Ali without being criticized by the boxing community for not having accepted the challenge of his top rival Manny Pacquiao.Boxing fans have applauded Ali for his claim of having been the greatest fighter in his era because he accepted challenges from the best fighters during his active years in boxing. He lost in some of his great fights but no one disputed his being the greatest fighter of his generation.Mayweather has almost everything in his record book to substantiate his claim to supremacy in the sport. His claim of being unbeaten in his entire pro career is documented and no one will question it. Being undefeated is definitely a prime consideration for a fighter’s claim at supremacy in the sport.The unbeaten champ has time and again lay claim to being the greatest based only on his unbeaten record and nothing more. This seems to be the reason he is perceived to have ducked elite fighters like Pacquiao during his recent fights in order to preserve his virginal record.To his credit though, Mayweather has accepted the challenge from Miguel Cotto, of one of the best fighters in his era. He won the fight via a unanimous decision in 2012 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.Still there is someone better than Cotto who continues to challenge Mayweather’s supremacy in the sport and the unbeaten champ continues to ignore his challenge, saying he isn’t worth the fight.

Cotto likely to face Bradley in New York

Newly crowned WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto could find himself facing former WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley late this year at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Cotto is fresh from his RTD victory over Sergio Martinez early this month to capture the WBC and The Ring middleweight titles at the Madison Square Garden in New York while Bradley is recovering from his unanimous decision loss in a rematch against Manny Pacquiao last April 12.Bob Arum, whose Top Rank Promotions (TR) promotes Bradley and Cotto said after the fight in New York, told ESPN that he is working on the possibility of staging an HBO pay-per-view (PPV) fight between Cotto and Bradley in New York.

“We’re thinking about the possibility of making Cotto and (Timothy) Bradley,” Arum said.”We’re talking but we’d have to work (the weight) out. We haven’t gotten that far yet.” he added.Earlier, there were talks of a possible clash between Cotto and Mexican boxing sensation Canelo Alvarez, who suffered his first career loss to Floyd Mayweather in a PPV fight that nearly broke the numbers of the de la Hoya-Mayweather fight in 2007.Alvarez is set to face Erislandy Lara on July 12 in a non-title light middleweight fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.Arum said it is unlikely that Alvarez will fight Cotto before the end of the year but he thinks the best time for the Cotto-Alvarez clash would be next year to coincide with the Cinco de Mayo weekend.

“It probably makes more sense for us to do a Cotto-Canelo fight next year on the Cinco de Mayo weekend,” Arum said.Arum will have no problem with the arrangement for the proposed Cotto-Bradley fight as the two fighters are under his Top Rank umbrella.But Arum is apprehensive about the weight issues which is the subject of his current discussion with both fighters.Cutto is now fighting in the light middleweight limit of 154 while Bradley has never fought above 147. If they can meet halfway, Arum would be happy to work on the other details of the fight for another blockbuster event in New York before the end of the year.

Op-Ed: Why Manny Pacquiao needs senate seat in 2016

Fighting Congressman Manny Pacquiao has not officially announced his intention to seek a senate seat in the 2016 national elections but presidential aspirant and incumbent Vice-President Jejomar Binay has already included him in his senatorial slate.
Pacquiao, who is an incumbent congressman representing the province of Sarangani, has previously admitted his desire to run for president of the Philippines.

In his revelations to Agence France-Presse (AFP) via InteAction, in an exclusive interview after the kick off ceremony in Macau, China, to promote his upcoming fight against Brandon Rios on Nov. 24, Pacquiao said he has indeed entertained the idea of joining the 2022 presidential election.
Pacquiao’s admission is not actually new. In 2011, his promoter Bob Arum revealed Pacquiao’s political plan.

“It’s 2022, that’s the year Manny would become eligible to run for the presidency,” Arum said before Pacman’s open media workout according to Examiner.com back in 2011.
“That would be, to me, the biggest achievement of my career, to see this kid how far he has come and how far he can go.
“But I hope I will be alive to see it. I will be age 91. I won’t be dancing, I will be in the hospice by then,” Arum said with a hearty laugh. Read more:


If indeed he is serious on his future presidential bid, he needs to win a senate seat first in order to have a national constituency. This was also the advice of Speaker Feliciano Belmonte when asked about Pacquiao’s presidential bid.
“He should be a senator first, get some training [in the Senate],” Belmonte told reporters when sought for comment on Pacquiao’s political plans.
A senate seat is almost always a prerequisite for candidates seeking the vice presidency or the presidency as it one of the three executive posts that are voted by a national constituency.
A senate candidacy would be a crucial test for Pacquiao’s chances of winning in a national election and if he is successful in his senatorial bid, it would be the best barometer for his 2022 presidential bid.
Pacquiao. who is a high school dropout but passed the equivalency test, is eligible to run for president of the Philippines in accordance with the constitution.
