Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: Do you care?



The super fight of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr may actually happen it seems.  Mayweather actually called Pacquiao in the Philippines on Wednesday in another attempt to set up the fight.  It seems Mayweather wants the fight to take place on May 5 in Vegas at the MGM Grand.  The question is whether or not anyone cares?

So, STOB'ers...do you care?
Personally I don't.  Boxing is dead, it died for me when every Tyson fight started turning into a circus.  When every weight class has 100 different championship belts making it tough to tell or care who is the belt holder of whatever belt...or whatever...it is confusing.  Maybe this is the fight that gets people interested again.  Maybe all the bad blood that has built between the two outside the ring will make for a great fight within the ring.  Yet, boxing has to prove it can actually put on a super fight and do so without controversy.  There is the key, the only way or the best way for there to be no controversy would be if there is a knockout, if there isn't a clean knockout then it goes to judges.  Judges = controversy.  

I could go one but you get the point.  The odds are against the boxing world for this fight to live up to the hype and relight America's fire for the sport.  First it actually needs to be scheduled.

Please answer the poll of whether or not you'd care about this fight if it were finally set up.
