Manny Pacquiao

Video Hype: Pacquiao-Marquez III

This is the best opening episode of a 24/7 series since...I dunno...maybe Mayweather-Mosley. I like how they're focusing on the people in the periphery since we know the principals so well--the segment on Linares's savage loss to DeMarco, with the scene of Manny comforting a battered Jorge in the locker room afterward, was extremely effective.

Mayweather Speaks Out: Manny is Fighting My Leftovers

Floyd broke his silence today in a brief interview with Ben Thompson at Fighthype.com. The skinny:

  • He calls Mosley his "leftovers," and says although he will be rooting for Shane, he doesn't give him much of a shot against Manny, and even implies that Shane should take PEDs for the fight to level the playing field
  • The rumors of him fighting this summer, especially against Paul Spadafora, are completely unfounded, and that he is happily enjoying his hiatus
  • He will fight Manny whenever Manny agrees to take the test

In other words, same old Floyd.
