Lorenzo Fertitta Takes Shot At Boxing’s Inability To Pair Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather

Lorenzo Fertitta, one of the owners of the UFC, took a slight shot at boxing Saturday night following Manny Pacquiao’s loss to Juan Manuel Marquez.

For the past few years now, promoters have tried to pair Pacquiao with Floyd Mayweather, but the two sides have not been able to reach an agreement.

With Pacquiao’s loss to Marquez on Saturday, the potential super-fight between the two has lost much of its luster.

The UFC, of course, is attempting to pair UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. Both fighters recently earned wins, keeping the hope for a colossal showdown intact.

      I agree. But the ball at the moment is on Anderson Silvas age. I think GSP will eventually take the fight, but it will be when he feel like it. The question will be if the fight will lose some of its value if any of them loses and in which fashion that loss comes

  • Had time to kill…

    The fact that pac got dropped means the gig is up on “Money” fights as he always talked about. UFC still needs to have a super-fight happen first one will be frankie vs aldo which is not same scale but quite exciting match up.
