I've officially moved on from Pacquiao/Mayweather, now its time for Pacuiao bashing , he is ruining this era. we need him to move on

    I have totally moved on from the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight happening, so much to the point th@ when I think about I think f** Pacquiao, and Arum I spit on the ground.  The only ones in their camp absolved from blame are Freddie Roach and Alex Ariza. They dont have any thing to with the negotiations. If it were up to them the fight would happened already.Alex Ariza even spoke out about it, saying Arums to blame, he drops liccle sumbleminals too.  Theres a video th@ shows him playing with…

IS BRADLEY WORTH THE RISK FOR REWARD FOR PACQUIAO?

Rumor has it that Timothy Bradley may be the likely opponent for Manny Pacquiao on June 9.

IF NO MAYWEATHER FIGHT, BRADLEY SHOULD BE THE NEXT OPTION FOR MANNY

By Kevin Davis

 If Manny Pacquiao cannot wait for a Floyd Mayweather to complete his stint with the law, he should indeed have his next fight against Tim 'Desert Storm' Bradley. Pacquiao has faced Juan Manuel Marquez in three spirited battles and a fourth fight seem academic at this point. We may never get a clear cut winner out of that fight. The only thing Pacquiao hasn't done (besides fight mayweather) is fight a hunger young champion. This september we saw Floyd Mayweather…
