Larry Holmes thinks Mayweather Jr. is scared of Pacquiao


When interviewed by the Gulf News, former heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes (69-6-0) said some interesting things about his thoughts on the topic of recent Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0-0) and Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2) back and forth drama. (

“I think Pacquiao and Mayweather will still fight. It may take a little more time and a little more money but I think it will still happen. These latest comments are just to raise suspense,” stated Holmes. Despite various rumors of Pacquiao’s impending retirement, most people share Larry’s belief that the fight will most likely happen, and sooner rather than later.

“It’s a big fight but I don’t think it’s the end of the world if it never happens,” continued Holmes. Sure it wouldn’t be the end of the world, but it would be a very nasty conclusion to the careers of both champions. This is a very lucrative, record shattering, and most importantly history shaping opportunity for both men, thus by not putting in all the effort into making it a reality, these two would be letting a lot of people, as well as the sport itself, down.

When getting to the trendy topic of whose fault it would be if the fight never materialized, Holmes said the following: “If they never fight it won’t be Pacquiao’s fault. Every time they came round to fighting Mayweather put his excuses in. Pacquiao did all he can. He did all I would have done. I think Mayweather just got a little too scared if you ask me. If he thinks Pacquiao is taking drugs so what, he should just say: ‘You take it, you kill yourself that isn’t going to help you, because with my talent and ability I believe I can still beat you.’ But he was scared to take that challenge.”

Floyd is more willing to fight the robocop or an allien from mars, rather than fight pacquiao… for authentic reasons he was defeated for the first time..
