Mayweather's Next Move?

Does Mayweather Know What's Next?
Assuming Manny Pacquiao gets by Antonio "Thank you Bob Arum and Jerry Jones" Margarito in his usual explosive fashion on November 13, and Floyd Mayweather returns from his relaxing vacation, the question will be: What will Mayweather do now?

We already know of Pacquiao's political duties in his native country, Philippines.

But what about Mayweather?

Many doubts have been raised regarding the meltdown of negotiations to making the fight as well as Mayweather's decision to go on vacation shortly thereafter. But once he returns his vision should be clear. Is Mayweather waiting for Pac-Man to be tenderized? Is he waiting to see if Pacquaio still wants to negotiate?

Or is Mayweather waiting for Pacquiao to be beaten?

Either way, the sizzle to their superfight has fizzled. But if there is one fighter (along with a certain promoter--Don King) who can reignite the public's imagination in this fight, it is Mayweather. Unless, of course, he is unsure of what's next.

What will they think of next?

Should Fans Boycott Pacquiao vs. Margarito?

WHY is this fight being approved??

Normally, banning fights is not something combat sport fans do when they like a fighter. But in this case an exception should be made. And though Manny Pacquiao cannot be blamed 100% for this infraction, at least 50% should go to him. He should have demanded that his promoter, Bob Arum, either choose another fighter from his stable or another fighter altogether. Not one who was literally and figuratively caught red handed, but has yet to admit to what would have been felonious assault.

Unless Pacquiao is giving Juan Manuel Marquez a 3rd shot in the ring, no other fight--except against a smaller Timothy Bradley--no other fighter less than Floyd Mayweather Jr. should be entertained.

Give the fans what they want or watch the fans turn their backs. This fight is a bigger farce than James Toney vs Randy Couture.
