Floyd Mayweather: Pacquiao is next after Ortiz

Is Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight possible?
The undefeated welterweight boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally accepted the challenge of fighting Manny Pacquiao after his fight against Victor Ortiz on September 17th. After the unsuccessful negotiation of Pacquiao-Mayweather fight last May 2011, the expectations of watching these two great fighters are starting to rise. At the press conference last week, Mayweather said, "Manny Pacquiao, yes, you're next," according to His opponent (Mayweather), Victor Ortiz, is considered as one of the toughest fighters in the present. After a year of silence in the ring, Mayweather decided to take on Victor Ortiz, who is currently holding the WBC Welterweight belt. The deal between the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is not yet close to its highest expectations, but chances are, if either fighters lose to their respective opponents, the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight might be not possible. And besides, both fighters have a fight to take care of, Manny have to handle Pacquiao vs. Marquez 3, which I guess would be a very explosive match-ups. Other issues affecting the possibility of Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is the random drug tests that Mayweather wants and the possibility of Pacquiao to commit a punitive weight penalty like $10 million per pound overweight penalty. These factors can affect the possibility of the much awaited Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. I hope that there will be no problems that will affect the possibility of the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight because I would love to see Manny Pacquiao fight the former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. in order for us to know who is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
