I’m so sick and tired of writing about these two constantly running into each other “coincidentally” at basketball games, concerts, and wherever else they decide to tease their lowly-anticipated rematch.
Now I will say, I’m not one to discuss the awkwardness of handshakes, per-say…
…but god damn fellas, what the hell was that?
We all know this rivalry is as phony and fugazi as any that sporting-landscape has ever seen, so if you’re gonna post this, why not go back and re-film the confrontation? Or at the very least, get it outta slow-mo mode! It’s like a giant magnifying glass on the whole thing! Do Manny and Floyd really care that little? They’re just cool with the potential “build” of their next fight riding on a handshake fail so uncomfortable that it sends shivers down the spines of whoever watches it?
I’d try to spinzone this if I were them and this was out there. Talk about how they despise each other so much that they couldn’t even shake hands or something. Discuss that there’s so little chemistry between the two, and so much conflict, they couldn’t agree on something as simple as a shake or a pound.
It would just be so preposterous you’d have to respect it and get on board with Mayweather/Pacquiao 2.
