If you're different that's your choice.

Mayweather fights people he wants to fight, not those that threaten his belt. I've never heard of more excuses by any fighter or seen a more pathetic attempt to run from a fight before or since Mayweather - but that's how he chooses to define himself as a "fighter." And he wonders why people don't think he's on the level of Muhammad Ali, who incidentally only used his fists on men - in the boxing ring...

My point was that even though you're entitled to your opinion about stars and their private lives, it shouldn't have a direct correlation to what you think of their talent. I believe Amy Winehouse was an absolute mess but, good lord, she could sing.
It would be different if you were saying, "Mayweather has a weak jab" as that would be like those of us that think Jimi Hendrix can't sing. It's healthy criticism. You seem to invest far too much in who they are and not what they do.

That's fair though. You can think what you think. I just wanted to address the point.

It will never happen, and if it does it'll just be another Jones Jr vs Hopkins II all over again.. May and Pac are in their 30's and still haven't fought yet, lol....
UFC is better....

Leonard called hmself waiting for Hagler to get old.. What ended up happening was both fighters got disinterested..
The fans got a bore-fest.

Even though boxing is not as popular or mainstream as it use to be, it still trumps UFC. Boxing's fanbase is much more diverse, and much larger. UFC was and is a fad. A couple of years ago it had some serious steam, but it got stale really quick. The ppv numbers are declining steadily. Sports bars that use to be full on the weekends with UFC viewers are now empty. The problem with UFC is that it promotes the UFC, and not the fighters. A lot (not all) of the fans are meatheads and rednecks. They tend to identify with white American fighters. Lately all of the big name white American fighters have retired like Matt Hughes, Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, and Brock Lesnar, Most of the stars are now Brazilian so guess which fanbase doesn't care anymore. GSP still has a large Canadian fanbase, but Dana needs to create some more stars asap. He should start by promoting the hell out of Jon Bones Jones.

As far as the Pac/Mayweather fight goes. It will happen when Manny leaves Bob Arum and Top Rank.
