Foreman and Pacquiao Won't Meet

Numerous reports state that WBO welterweight champion and pound-for-pound best, Manny Pacquiao, won't fight WBA light middleweight champion Yuri Foreman. Pacquiao is apparently concerned about Foreman's height and mobility.

In a statement to the Jerusalem Post, Foreman said, "It's a real honor the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the world doesn't want to fight me. Aside from winning the world title, this is the greatest compliment I've gotten in boxing." There has been no word on Foreman's next potential opponent.
