Throughout the past years, boxing has been on the decline due to competition (MMA), not that many great fighters, and lack of the heavyweight division. To me, there is one simple issue that could be addressed but isnt- boxing doesnt put on the fights people want to see.
The prime example is Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao. It seems like its been forever that fight fans around the world have wanted to see this fight and now it feels like its never going to happen. The two mentioned above seem to be fighting everybody else in boxing but wont come to an agreement to fight each other. Mayweather wants things his way and Manny wants things his way. It makes them both look like babies. Arent these guys supposed to be fighters? I thought so but it seems like they do more talking then fighting.
Floyd came back off his retirement to figh a lightweight in Juan Manuel Marquez which he destroyed and and old out of his prime Shane Mosley which he beat also. Mannys past fights have included a decent fighter in Miguel Cotto, an overrated Margarito, a weak Joshua Clottey and his next opponent is to be Shane Mosley and Floyds next opponent is unknown due to legal issues which leads us to ask will we ever see the fight we want to see?
