Boxing doesn't need Mayweather vs Ortiz

And you already know why... Boxing badly needs Mayweather vs Pacquiao and not Mayweather vs Ortiz.

On September 17, 2011, Floyd Mayweather, 41 wins (25 KOs) - 0 loss, will fight against Victor Ortiz, 29 wins (22 KOs) - 2 losses - 2 draws, in the United States. Assuming the fight will happen in Las Vegas, Nevada, will the venue be sold-out? maybe, probably because of Floyd's name. Is Victor Ortiz enough to give both boxers additional incentives from the PPV buys? I don't think so.

Boxing fans want to see Floyd Mayweather fight Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao. Many believed the undefeated American is dodging the fighting congressman from the Philippines to avoid any dirt in his clean record.

After fighting Shane Mosley in May 1, 2010, Floyd said in one of an amateur interview that he will take a break from the sport after two long years. Is he going to fight back every 16 months or longer? Can someone tell him to fight twice or thrice a year?

Floyd is one of the most exciting and unbeatable boxers today. His slick defense makes him draggy to watch sometimes but it is what boxing is all about. He is the most intelligent boxer ever and no one has ever damaged his beautiful face during a match - that's why he got the moniker "Pretty Boy".

"Vicious" Victor Ortiz will defend his WBC (World Boxing Council) welterweight title in the Ortiz vs Mayweather fight. He will be a good match against Floyd Mayweather but he will not be a sell-out and never going to create a solid buzz. The good thing about this fight for Ortiz is that he is going to be more popular and he is going to have the biggest paycheck in his entire boxing career. The fight is awesome for Ortiz, but is it for Mayweather? surely not. But if this fight leads to a fight against Manny Pacquiao in the second quarter next year, this tune-up fight may be what Floyd and his fans need. Do you think after Mayweather wins this fight (as expected) is going to announce that he will fight Manny Pacquiao next? maybe.

Manny will fight in the Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 on November 12, 2011 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. If both Pacquiao and Mayweather win in their respective fights, it would probably make the most sense to finally settle the mega-fight which was already discussed 2 years ago.
