1. Because he is a true-blooded businessman, he is himself a promoter. Boxing is his business, losing means diminishing of stock.

5. He doesn’t want to become a hero, an icon, because heroes die fast.

much of you said are correct...and that staining his being the greatest in this era..he naturally pick his foe or when to challenge a foe...naturally is not a trait for a great boxer....

fight the best now at their prime's...dont cherry pick or wait till him perceived that such great is no onger is and could then be cherry picked..

yes..maybe at this time..yet why he gone into retirement think not just once but twice...he most likley had fought the whoever greats out there then at their prime's...think it a considerably long restfull retirement or ducking? and fought back, still on a cherry pick.. only when the time such whoever greats then has been beaten into pulp of being done..

he he..riding of to your thoughts..at this time most likely..for pacquiao is no longer a pacquiao of then...maywhether chosses a slower foe...slow in footwork and or dishing out punches...he chosses to fight such a faster power puncher and foot speed foe when such fighter been off to a lot fights . tear and wear ..aged..and almost out of his prime...at what pac is it today...

pbf must have fough pac then...yet with his excuses...intentional retirement?...etc..he even has the advanatge of being a natural welter as against pac who started off as flyweight..why...coz of pac's speed...power..ability of taking a pucnh?

I will not put a cherry-picker in the Hall-of-Fame because I have higher standard as a competitive human being. Best be Pacquaio for taking risks than Floyd if I had a choice because Pacquiao took "competitive" risks. If Boxing is a business, then Mayweather should be the CEO of the year, never the boxer of the year. Period.
