Foreman Scares Pacquiao : Too Tall

World Champion Jewish Boxer Yuri Foreman will not be fighting Manny Pacquiao. Multiple World Champion Pacquaio from the Philippines, possibly the greatest ever pound-for-pound boxer in history, has declined to fight the Israeli because Foreman is “too tall.”

The LA Times quotes Pacquiao’s U.S. business manager Michael Koncz as saying that:

So, the toughest man in the world is so scared of Foreman’s extra 5 1/2 inches that he’s prepared to fight almost literally anyone shorter and lighter than him. Well almost anyone, Pacquaio’s not prepared to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. either because he’s scared of the drug-testing needles.

Hat tip to Gordon “Pacific” Haber.
