    Default Mayweather Must Speak Up Soon

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. must speak up soon - News - FOX Sports on MSN
    Updated Jul 17, 2010 6:58 PM ET
    To fight or not to fight? That is the question for Floyd Mayweather Jr.



    Who's the man?
    We tell you in our pound-for-pound rankings.
    With their self-imposed ďdeadlineĒ now expired for Mayweather to sign a contract, Manny Pacquiao and his Top Rank promotional team are considering other options. This does not mean that negotiations are off with Mayweather, as a deal can still be reached for the superfight. It merely means that Team Pacquiao will wait no more.

    Itís a shame that this fight hasnít been made. Both Pacquiao and Mayweather are poetry in motion inside the ring. Unfortunately, they create nothing more than tabloid fodder outside of it.

    The details of the contract that Bob Arum said he offered to Mayweather are unknown. In fact, there is no confirmation from the Mayweather side that they even received a contract. Yet with all the major sports networks running stories on the ďdeadline,Ē the Mayweather camp hasnít said a word. And we all know how much Mayweather loves to talk. There are two sides to every story and itís time that Mayweather tells his. If he doesnít want the fight, then he ought to explain why. If he does want the fight, then whatís stopping him from signing the contract?

    If Mayweather continues to be mum on the fight, then speculation will begin to run rampant. Just as when Pacquiao balked at the drug testing caveat demanded by Mayweather, Pacquiao had some explaining to do. No one had proof that Pacquiao was doping yet the accusations came anyway. Why would he pass up the fight and the money if heís clean?

    Until Mayweather speaks up, it will be perceived that he is balking at the deal. For whatever reason, be it the upcoming trial of his trainer and uncle Roger Mayweather or his possible desire to get this payday in 2011 for tax purposes, now Floyd has some explaining to do.

    Mayweather has never been shy. When it comes to self-promotion, he will be the first to tell you that heís the best. Heís obsessed with his own legacy. Mayweather has always been careful about selecting his opponents so maybe heís having second thoughts on a fight with Pacquiao. As Shakespeare penned, ďConscience makes cowards of us all.Ē

    Mayweather may be overthinking his legacy, and in the process, losing an opportunity to enhance it. The winner of Mayweather-Pacquiao would not only gain pound-for-pound supremacy but also be considered the best boxer of the last decade. Thatís quite a legacy being dangled in front of him.

    Where's Don King when you need him ?
    King is a ruthless scumbag, but if he was promoting this fight the contract would have been signed already .
    Nothing against Bob Arum, but he doesn't have the showmanship, and money smarts of King !
