Pacquiao vs. Margarito instead Mayweather

Many don't believe Margarito deserves to be facing Pacquiao after his suspension, subsequent refusal to admit any guilt over the matter or recent performances. The catch weight of 150lbs is also a point of contention for some, and the fact that the announcement seems to be a poor second offering compared to the again abandoned bout between Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather.
While catch weights are frustrating to some degree the nature of boxing today is such that weight classes are merely a number, and very rarely does a fighter outside the heavyweight division weigh the same on the night as they do at the weigh in.
Weight cutting has been a staple practice in many sports for decades, and unless fighters are weighed a couple of hours before they get into the ring, they aren't going to be anywhere close to the weight class that they are actually competing in. That idea throws up it's own problems though, and weight cutting doesn't look likely to disappear anytime soon.

Pacquiao vs Mayweather is On.

The Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight is going to happen on November 13, 2010 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas Nevada. Here is the quotes from the news.

Arum has said for months that Pacquiao will fight on Nov. 13, whether it is against Mayweather or another opponent.

“I think the only question is whether Mayweather is prepared to fight now,” Arum said. “He may say he’s had his fight for the year and that’s it and that we’ll address it again next year. He might say that. I don’t know. I don’t know. But that’s what I’m hypothesizing.

“The question is whether Mayweather is willing to go into the ring this year. It’s up to him. His people would love him to do it. He may not want to do it. If Mayweather wants to fight in November, I believe the fight will be made. To me it seems – it seems, and say that, because I’m not Mayweather – that the only issue is whether he wants to fight in November.”

Leonard Ellerbe, the chief executive officer of Mayweather Promotions, could not be reached for reaction on Arum’s statement. Richard Schaefer, the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, cited an agreement the sides made earlier this year not to speak to the media about the negotiations.
