Pacquiao vs Mayweather: Most anticipated Super fight or Boring fight?

Boxing fans around the globe can not wait any longer for an affirmative match up between the newly crowned all time great pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao and the undefeated self proclaimed greatest fighter of all time Floyd Mayweather Jr. The upcoming fight is surrounded by rumors, according to Paulie Malignaggi and Mayweather Sr., Pacquiao's uber human boxing prowess is impossible without the help of steroids or other pacquiao power enhancers. Anyway, I have a feeling that Bob Arum will have a hard time with this fight to bring into reality, the fight itself is like ego vs ego. Pacquiao might ask for a bigger share mainly because of his record breaking 7 championship titles in 7 different weight divisions. Floyd Mayweather Jr. may ask for a bigger share because he is insisting that he's the cash cow base on his 2.4M ppv buys when he fought Oscar Dela Hoya. Wait! I thought Oscar Dela Hoya is the real cash cow? Freddie Roach stated that the fight could happen in a very easy way,  he even stated that the fight will happen even at 50/50 share, but analysts out there said that the best split (so Floyd won't have a escape goat) is 40/40 or 45/45 and the rest is winner take's all. I'd take the 40/40, the winner gets another 20% of the pie. Fair enough Floyd? That sounds fair to me and to all of us boxing wannabes. Another rumor is that Floyd Mayweather Jr. could not wait any longer and instead wants to fight early next year. That is 100% unbelievable, boxing fans are now focus on the upcoming superfight and believe me, if Pacquiao or Mayweather Jr. fight any boxer other than them, that fight won't even make a 500k ppv buys.
Manny Pacquiao answered the question if he wants to fight Mayweather jr. next year. He said, Yes I will fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.! Floyd Mayweather Jr. insisted that Pacquiao is just a one dimensional, won't stand a chance of winning and he'll just KO the pound for pound king. Floyd can say anything about Pacquiao for the meantime, noone knows if Floyd has the balls to even face Pacquiao in the ring. We can say this is just a front bravery act, the most interesting part is this, he didn't answer the question if he will fight Manny Pacquiao next year, it was his manager that keeps on answering all those questions. So, just like what Joe Calzaghe said if Mayweather doesn't want to fight Pacquiao then better retire again.
Pacquiao is one of the most exciting boxers to watch, a true pound for pound boxer. His speed and newfound skills is just way better compared to his previous opponents. Pacquiao's power and toughness were once again proven when he fought Miguel Cotto. Mayweather is an excellent defensive boxer, make no mistake, Floyd has the speed also.His defensive style is pretty much very effective tactic, he has a good way to frustrate any opponent. Floyd maybe super cocky but his 40-0 standing speaks for itself. Mayweather fights aren't exciting at all compare to Pacquiao, but his capability to overly hype his fights proved successful.
Boxing fans worldwide are all ready for the most anticipated super fight of 2010 - Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. The question now is, will it be a real super fight or a world class boring fight?
