Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather: 5 Reasons Why It Will Still Happen

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 12/17/12 03:46PM EST


Following Manny Pacquiao's devastating knockout loss at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez, many people have given up all hope on a fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. On the other hand, there are a few people who believe that fight now has a much better chance of happening than ever before. Here are five reasons why Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather will still happen.

5: Pacquiao would take less money.

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather used to argue over who will get more of the pot. Now that Pacquiao has suffered such a devastating loss, it is safe to assume that he would be willing to take much less for an opportunity to fight Money May.

4: Pacquiao has something to prove.

Manny Pacquiao has hurt his boxing legacy after suffering a knockout loss to Marquez. He knows if he would defeat Floyd Mayweather that everyone would likely forget about his loss to Marquez and they would once again see him as the best fighter of his era.

3: Safer fight for Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather has done everything in his power to protect that zero in the loss column of his record. Now that he likely believes he would beat Pacquiao easily, he will be much more willing to accept a fight against Pacquiao.

2: Who else are they going to fight?

Sure both of these guys can always find opponents. Pacquiao could take a fifth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez and Floyd Mayweather could fight a few bums and make a few million in the process, but a Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather fight would still be the biggest fight in the sport of boxing right now.

1: Fans still want to see it.

Everyone is still talking about it, which means everyone still wants to see it. Of course it has lost some of its luster, but everyone would still pay to see it.
