Despite the glorification of boxing in the Rocky films (or Scorcese's admittedly very good Raging Bull) and all the rumble in the jungle-type hype it receives, I reckon boxing belongs with hare coursing or dog fighting: in the past.

There are logical reasons as to why both guys can come out on top. Both fighters have been at the top level of their sport for years, but this weekend goes a step further.

As I reflected on this Manny and his small entourage arrived, which meant it was my cue to leave. Driving along Beverly Boulevard ten minutes later, I couldn't get Freddie's words out of my head. "It's for the soul of boxing."

Amir "King?" Khan has stated on a Sky Sports Toe to Toe broadcast that he will not fight World Champion Kell Brook-even though having a World title would make him much more of a legitimate challenge to the winner of Mayweather v Pacquiao-the big money that Khan craves.

This is the big one, the defining match of this generation, the one they've been waiting for all of these lean years. It'll be up there with Ali versus Frazier and Sugar Ray Leonard versus Marvin Hagler, and it may very well be the last of its kind.

One book I don't regret asking for last Christmas was the auto-biography of Ricky Hatton, War and Peace. Though not primarily for Boxing reasons, since his last book covered his fighting career all the way to the Mayweather fight, and since then he's only boxed four times.

I genuinely wish Marcos and Floyd all the best for their fight - two great fighters. As a team we have now moved on and are looking at different options. I've been training very hard since my last fight. I'm a fighter who wants to face the very best out there and have never ducked any opponent. I'm focused and ready for my next outing - we currently have a few options on the table at the moment and my team are working alongside Golden Boy Promotions to announce my next fight within the next 10 days.

Mayweather v Pacquiao for all of the marbles would have been the perfect end to the career of probably the most gifted and extraordinarily talented fighter since the peak Roy Jones. In any event this is now a mute point as it appears we will have to settle for procrastination being the true pound for pound winner at this juncture in boxing history.

Both fighters have bigger goals in their sites. And for that reason, it would make more sense for both to pursue their own career. Currently, nether Khan nor Brook needs this fight, but in 12 months time, if all goes to plan, then the hype will be justified.
