Boxing Legend says Floyd Mayweather & Manny Pacquiao damaging their Legacy

Sugar Ray Leonard
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - Boxing Legend "Sugar" Ray Leonard believes if Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao do not fight, it will damage their reputations (Legacy) more than it will hurt boxing.  I tend to agree. Should Pacquiao and Mayweather for whatever reasons fail to face one another... not only will it damage their legacies, but it will be what they are remembered for and that is failing to fight one another. 

Earlier this month, Leonard told the BBC Radio Live, referring to Pacman vs. Money: "More than damaging to boxing, it's damaging to their legacy."

Leonard went on to add: "This is for history, for people to say 'I remember when'. It's beyond money."

To me there is no excuse that "Money" Mayweather vs. Pacquiao doesn't happen this year.  Now talk is that it's being pushed to 2013.  At this point, who really cares?! The meaning and value amongst fans for this fight has already dwindled big time... and waiting longer only kills what little importance is left.
