Floyd Mayweather ducks Antonio Margarito and $8 million

Why can't Floyd Mayweather escape the chicken tag? I don't know maybe because HE IS. In 2006, Mayweather in his prime turned down $8 million dollars to fight Antonio Margarito. He said he was injured and Margarito is not a household name (back then) but two years later Mayweather vs Margarito never materialized even when the latter won the welterweight championship over Cotto (Margarito vs Cotto).The Mexican has the credibility to challenge Mayweather now unlike before.

Gee I wonder why cock-a-doodle doo!!! Even if he is not afraid of Margarito, Floyd doesn't want to fight the best. Mayweather has no right to call himself a great boxer because of the long list of fighters he has avoided (Mayweather scared of Cotto
). To be the best you have to beat the best. Despite his delusional claims, Mayweather will never beat the great Sugar Ray Robinson.

Mayweather often wonders why he doesn't get any respect? If he wants to get respect - do it the old-fashioned way by facing and beating the best boxers available not avoiding them and giving flimsy reasons.

Mayweather is a smart boxer though. He only takes on boxers he thinks he can beat.
