The tension is in the air. You could cut it with a knife. I'm pretty sure Manny would not be laughing in Mayweather's face like he did with Marquez and now Timothy Bradley. I think over the last year or so, there has been a distaste for each other. So far on the receiving end Mayweather has gotten the worse of the two. He has Mayweather tied up with legal action about his alledged PED use. It has to be hard making a fight when your sueing the other person. If we had to give their fight a title, you could use "No Laughing Matter".
Manny Pacquiao's rise up the ranks is almost unheard of and lately he seems to be slowing down. So many reason's are being thrown around. From over training, to getting old, to all sorts of things. Maybe Manny himself is just starting to lose interest in fighting. Sometimes after a person converts his religion or takes it seriously, their attitude changes. It's not the hurt business no more. It's about Peace and Love. Pacquiao has some fans wondering if this will be a hinderance in his fight with Timothy Bradley because Bradley is bringing his all to Pacman.
I'm sure that will probably be the case until Bradley hits Pacquiao real good. Then as the old saying goes, don't take my Kindness for Weakness. Manny can go into beast mode when he is pushed to that limit. That's what would make the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight explosive because Floyd can get you riled up before the fight even starts. He goes right at you in the pressers. He can get underneath your skin. So much build up will have Pacquiao jumping out the gate. They say pressure burst pipes, but Mayweather's defense hardly ever get's broken into. Well, first things first we must see how Pacman does against Bradley and Mayweather vs Cotto. Then Toprank can get the HYPE machine going again. Hopefully this time, there will be no let downs.
