The Barbershop- July 5, 2011

By Allan Scotto

Happy Tuesday, fans!
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue that you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute, scroll down and leave your comment below.
Now, on to today’s question:

Floyd Mayweather is scheduled to meet Victor Ortiz in the ring on September 17th. However, in most of his news conferences, Floyd seems to always get back to Manny Pacquiao and his insistence that Manny submit to Olympic-style drug testing before Mayweather will even consider fighting him.
This has made some people wonder why Mayweather is still so fixated on Pacquiao when his upcoming fight is with Ortiz.
So, do you think that Floyd is taking Ortiz too lightly by looking past him and if you do, how big a mistake do you think that could prove to be?
You pay the bills, fans, what do YOU think? 
Don’t forget fans, you can join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 207. We’ll be discussing the “Barbershop” question of the week and whatever else is on your mind in the sport of boxing. The show runs from 7 PM to 9 PM EST and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846. We look forward to hearing from you!
