Pacquaio-Mayweather superfight off

The superfight every boxing fans awaits is off. In a press statement, Team Pacquaio's promoter Bob Arum said that both parties did not come up in an agreement on the issue of Olympic-style drug testing. Pacquaio vs. Mayweather dream fight slated on March 13 would have been history's biggest and richest and might not happen again in the next decade. It would have guaranteed each boxer $40 million each (including pay-per-view sales). But principle, over money, is the issue here. I think both camps have their own reasons (but honestly I think Floyd Jr and Floyd Sr. were just chickened of Manny's strength). As a boxing fan, I wish future negotiations will make this fight possible.

Maybe March is not just the right time. Please don't disappoint us, Manny and Floyd!
