Manny Pacquiao: Does Mayweather’s Return Signal a Matchup Between the Two Icons?

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Have Been Linked to Each Other for Years, But Will they Fight?

When Floyd Mayweather Jr. decided to return to boxing, it sent shockwaves through the sport.

It has been years since Money Mayweather decided to step foot in the ring, and the sport is more entertaining now that he's back.

Mayweather will fight Victor Ortiz for his comeback fight, and it just so happens to line up perfectly with Manny Pacquiao's schedule.

Pacquiao will fight Antonio Margarito, and after that, both fighters have a lot of free time, which is perfect if these two men want to finally agree on a deal and step into the ring.

While there is plenty of bad blood between these fighters, the reality is that both men need each other to define their legacies. Both Mayweather and Pacquiao will have asterisks on their legacies if they never fight each other, giving them little choice but to finally sign on the dotted line.

They are the top two boxers of their generation, and it would be a disservice to themselves and the fans if this superfight never happened. Mayweather will talk a big game, and I'm sure Pacquiao's name will come up in the pre-fight hype, creating more buzz for this clash of the titans.
