The good folks at VladTV were able to get a snap of the following photo from Freddie Roach’s Wild Card gym in Los Angeles:
Apparently, it’s a list of Manny Pacquiao’s past, present and future targets -- with their weights beside their names. Next to Floyd Mayweather Jr., however, instead of putting his weight, they put the word “NEVER.” Considering the fact that the other names had weights not dates beside their names, the reference doesn’t make much sense. Though, it’s probably safe to say that it isn’t a compliment towards Mayweather, no matter how you look at it.
Pacquiao and Mayweather, of course, have spent the last year dancing around a potential fight with one another in large part due to the former’s reluctance to accept a drug test in a timely fashion and the latter’s stubbornness on the matter. Instead, fans will get to see Pacquiao take fifteen minutes out of his day to pound Shane Mosley’s face into the canvas in their May 7 bout.
For now, though, relish the creativity and genius in the above poster -- because little pot shots are just about all the two sides have proven to be good for in this never-ending feud.
