Mayweather has, for the most part, been able to fight who he wants, where he wants and when he wants. He sells enough pay-per-views that he has been able to avoid a fight with Manny Pacquiao that should have taken place five years ago.Mayweather didn't seem to grasp that the other day when he broke his silence and tried to make it seem as if he were challenging Pacquiao to a fight, not the other way around.If it had, Mayweather might have demanded Pacquiao be allowed to train only one week for the fight, have his blood taken in the locker room just before he goes into the ring and not be able to use his right hand for the first eight rounds.Pacquiao's fight last month with Algieri in Macau wasn't a big seller, and both of Mayweather's fights last year with Maidana underperformed.Put Mayweather and Pacquiao in the ring together and that would change.
