Pacquiao-Mayweather: Who needs Who?

In the recent Interview with Manny Pacquiao on ESPN, the Filipino fighting sensation told the press that "I don't need him, he needs me.. Compare my achievements in boxing to his achievements."  Manny Pacquiao was obviously referring to former Pound for Pound King Floyd "Money" Mayweather.  Mayweather holds an unblemished record with 41 wins with 25 knockouts.  His recent win was against Sugar Shane Mosley.  Manny Pacquiao on the other hand is known to be the Pound-for-pound King, right after Mayweather had retired.  Pacquiao has a record of 51 wins 3 loses 2 draws, with 38 wins via Knock out.  A seven Division world champion and the only boxer to do it.  Now Pacquiao aims for the eighth belt against the dangerous Tijuana Tornado Antonio Margarito.

Both fighters are known to be great.  They have entertained a lot of fans from their fights.  But the question still remains, who's the BEST?  We can never tell if both fighter won't be seen on the ring without a fight.

Now, speculations has been pointing at Mayweather for trying to avoid the fight.  Despite all the accusations that had been made by Floyd, it had cost him his reputation.  Some of the boxer even think that he needs to make the fight happen, it all lies in Floyd.  For they know that Manny had agreed to the terms.  Even though Manny Pacquiao's camp knows that this is a strategy that Floyd wants.  They took the gamble in order the fight to happen.

So who needs who?  Some people says that Manny doesn't need the fight anymore to prove his greatness.  Some people says that Mayweather needs to prove his skills in the Ring in fighting Manny Pacquiao.  Fans also think that Mayweather is afraid of that fight, because he is usually doing and pointing whom is he going to fight.  

I don't know what you are going to say about this post, but their is only one thing I want.  For the BIG FIGHT to happen.  Enough with the rumors, talks, and every thing else.  Just give us the fight.
