One more on Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

I am a self confessed boxing fan.I have witnessed and read the antics and tantrums thrown by boxing supertars.But nothing beats the noise and rubish heaped by Floyd Mayweather Jr.on Manny Pacquaio.

The verbal taunts are below the belt and uncalled for. The rantings unfortunately speaks volume of a scared and a fame jealous fighter. Floyd may fool a few, but not the greater majority of boxing fans. It is clear Floyd is scared stiff to fight the Filipino boxing sensation Manny Pacquaio.

Gentleman Manny Pacquaio has nothing to prove. He has gone up several weigh divisions to fight bigger guys and convincingly whipped them all. If this is not bravery at the exreme then what it is? Looking through Pacquaio's and those of Mayweather Jr's recent fights, it is apparent why Floyd is scared. Floyd's performances on these fights were boring and calculatingly safe.Those of Pacqauiao's were outstanding and exciting to behold. The praises heaped by the veteran sports casters on Pacquaio during his fights were am sure enough for Floyd to cringe in his seat. If Floyd will fight Pacquaio today, Floyd would surely be the underdog in the betting.

Floyd has run out of obstacles and alibis to dodge Pacquiao. At first, he wanted an Olympic style drug testing. That threw off the fight negotiation because Pacquaio didn't agree to it. When recently in a bid to clinch the fight, Pacquaio agrreed to such testing, Flyoyd sidestep the negotiation initiated by promoter Bob Arum by saying he is not interested to fight this year.Really?. I won't be surprised if Floyd will come up with another flimsy alibi not to fight Pacquaio next year.

One thing sure though Floyd's reluctance to fight Pacquaio do not sit well with fight fans. Not only that he has slipped from the top pound for pound rankings, he has fallen from his lofty pedestal in the eyes of the boxing fans. And the only way he will regain his standing and respect is by fighting the greatest boxer today - Manny Pacquaio.

The Ubiquitous Mailbox

I find it difficult to think of a household without a mailbox. Be in the city or far flung areas, there it is fronting residence or located at the corner of the property. For as long as we have mail correspondence and magazine subscriptions, we will need this utility box and its importance is not diminished even in this computer age. There will always be mailboxes in residences and in commercial establishments as well. And we will always be visiting the mailboxes to check and collect mail and magazine deliveries. If so isn’t it about time to afford our mailboxes a little importance? In this age of identify thief and high incidence of thievery, it may be wise to consider to replacing our old mailboxes with more secure but affordable mailboxes consistent with the valuables that are expected to be deposited and temporarily stored in them.

Those building their new homes or commercial buildings particularly should consider mailboxes in their master plan. What type and where to locate the ma…
