Back in 2009, boxing fanatics were heartbroken to be denied the chance to witness one of the greatest matches in boxing history between the undefeated world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao. At the time, great disagreements on the terms of the fight from both boxer camps prevented it from happening despite predictions that it would be the highest grossing boxing match of all time. Some experts accused Floyd of being too demanding while others called Manny scared and stubborn. During the negations of the fight, the 8-page contract was so detailed that it indicated who would step onto the scales first during the weigh-in, who would enter the ring first during the match, who had first choice for the locker room and who would be introduced first. Mayweather also requested for Olympic-style drug testing up to the weigh-in. The fight was finally cancelled after negotiations hit rock bottom, thus giving sadness to online betting fans.
