The long-awaited fight between the former pound-for-pound boxer Manny Pacquiao and American undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is now possible.
If both fighters would continue to dominate the sport of boxing, then the biggest match will happen late next year. Floyd Jr. is now committed to protect his legacy. According to some of his fans, Floyd Jr. will retire soon in the sport of boxing. But before doing that, he needs to defeat the Filipino boxing icon.
Pacquiao, on the other hand, must win convincingly against the brawler Brandon "Bam-Bam" Rios on Nov. 23. The world is watching if he has still something to prove in the sweet science or if he deserves a battle against Mayweather Jr.
If Pacquiao loses again, Floyd Jr. has the right to refuse not to fight him. This is a chance for the Filipino to bounce back from his two defeats, although the loss against Bradley is somewhat illegitimate for most boxing fans.
However, Floyd Jr. must stay away from any troubles outside boxing. He should do what he's doing best, maintaining his perfect records. But we all have seen him coming a recent victory against Canelo Alvarez. He schooled the Mexican boxing star, as if he just started learning boxing.
It is a good sign that Floyd Jr. is coming off from his cage. He showed the world how strong and genius he was when Alvarez couldn't land solid punches. His ratings went up and many people believe that the dream match will come into reality in 2014.
