Freddie Roach
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. Like when a TV show you use to love watching, jumps the shark, talk of Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao has become an on running joke. What use to be the talk of the town, can no longer even be found on a Wanted Poster in some one horse ghost town.

Really, we are living in the final days of this fight having any shred of value to fans left... it's become boxing's version of a tumbleweed rolling down a dusty old road. No one even wants to talk about it any more because let's face it... we are all tired as hell spending time doing so. I mean really, how much time can go by before this fight is a dead issue period? How much time before all the branches fall of the tumbleweed and this fight becomes a stick in the dirt? If you ask Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, the fight has a life span of one shelf year left.

Quoted recently by USA Today regarding a Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Jr. showdown, Roach told the publication: "I think if the fight doesn't happen next year, it never will happen."

Roach went on to add: "People are getting bored and tired of (talking about it). We're chasing a rabbit we can't catch."

Bored and tired... Roach has the part 110% correct.  This is no longer a Rabbit though... more like a Rabbit dying at the side of the road waiting for a tumbleweed to roll over its carcass.
