Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Boxing's life may not necessarily depend on this fight, but you know that this fight has to happen, for all the reasons in the world.

This fight does not really need a subtitle. The fighters' surnames more than speak for themselves. It's Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Or Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Whatever. But that's all you need to know.

Besides, boxing does not need to be saved, does it? For years on end, critics, cynics, and skeptics have kept looking down the sport known as the sweet science and called it "dying." Well, now, they are all shutting up, because as much as ever, or since onlookers started to claim boxing's downfall, boxing has been rising, amidst all adversity and other factors, and rising well.

Some of them are even surfing with boxing's popularity right now, and all of them, with the hardcore boxing fans, the recent converts, and the casual audience, want one thing:
