Enough is enough, no more excuses

 

To put it perfectly blunt, I'm fed up. I'm fed up with the excuses, I'm fed up with the lies, and I'm fed up with the blatant double standard out there. I'm sick and tired of the excuses Manny Pacquiao has been coming up with. It's time that someone called him out on it. I'm no one important to the boxing world, or even here, but someone somewhere had to take a stand. I'm just completely livid at the outcry of support that Manny Pacquiao has received over this entire debacle. The man has lied. Multiple times. And when he gets called out on the lie, his camp comes up with another excuse to cover for his lie. No more. The bullshit needs to stop. And it needs to stop right now.

 

Excuse #1: I can't take the fight because I'm going to run for office.
Rebuttal #1: Fight was moved up to March 13th.

Excuse #2: I won't take the fight unless it's 50-50 split.
Rebuttal #2: Fight was made 50-50 split with no problem from Floyd.

Excuse #3: I won't take the fight unless I get the ring size I want.
Rebuttal #3: Floyd agrees to whatever ring size Manny wants.

Excuse #4: I won't take the fight unless I get the glove size I want.
Rebuttal #4: Floyd agrees to whatever glove size Manny wants.

Excuse #5: I won't take the fight unless Floyd Mayweather gives me $10 million per pound he comes in over the weight limit.
Rebuttal #5: Floyd agrees to the demand, no matter how stupid and astronomical it is.

Excuse #6: I will never take a blood test within 30 days prior to any of my fights. It affects my performance.
Rebuttal #6: Documentation from Hatton-Pacquiao 24/7 shows a blood test within 24 days of the fight.

Manny is looking for ways out of this fight. He doesn't want to fight Floyd. Hell, Floyd signed the contract way before Manny did. Manny toiled over his decision for days before finally agreeing to the fight. There comes a time and a place for a man to finally step up and be a man about everything that has gone on. He has to mature, basically. Manny Pacquiao is choosing not to mature right now. He continues to hide behind these lies. I'm sure I'm coming off as bashing the guy, and I guess to a degree I am, but I'm just calling a spade a spade. The guy has lied. Floyd Mayweather has given in to his every demand, no matter how ridiculous it seemed to be, in order to get this fight done. If it's not one thing with Manny, it's another. He does not want to actually fight Floyd Mayweather. If it were for Floyd Mayweather doing all this, people would be lighting torches and forming an angry mob to crucify him for ducking another worthy opponent. But, and this really grinds my gears, because it's Manny Pacquiao, a national hero and likable (somewhat) guy, it's fine that he's doing this. He's still the good guy and the guy doing the right things.

 

Mark my words, if Manny Pacquiao backs out of this fight (again!), his legacy is tarnished forever and suspicions about him doping will become quite real. Man up. No more excuses.
