01:38 PM ET 06.08 | Floyd Mayweather is making a ring comeback, something the pound-for-pound king believes is a sign they are destined to face each other in 2012. "That's good," Pacquiao told the Bulletin as soon as his plane landed in General Santos City late Wednesday afternoon from Manila when told about Mayweather's decision to come out of retirement. "Ortiz is a southpaw like me so I think Mayweather is preparing (to get used to a lefthander)," said Pacquiao, who is itching to get the chance to bang with the former holder of boxing's most coveted mythical title.

Think again Pacman. Floyd wants no part of you!

Hey Pacman is it because then Mayweather would be considered old and past his prime like most of your opponents?

Pac man has agreed to take "Additional" drug tests that was "not required" by the Nevada Boxing Commission!!! Is Mayweather demanding that Ortiz take the same "additional" drug tests??

MadMex/El Tri!, I know you were an ex boxer and I think you took one too many shots to the head!!!! Mayweather wanted Pacquiao to take additional drug tests that "WERE NOT" required by the Nevada Boxing commission. I'm just wondering did Mayweather demand Ortiz to take these same "Additional" drug tests that he demanded from Pacquiao????????????

Again the "Additional" drug test that Mayweather demanded Pacquiao to take "WAS NOT" required by the Nevada (where the fight was suppose to take place) Boxing Commission!!! Let us face the facts, Mayweather doesn't want any part of Pac Man or the fight would have been history by now!!!
