Punch drunk: KJ Noons willing to stand and trade with Manny Pacquiao in MMA fight

Quoteworthy:

"I would love to welcome Pacquiao into MMA. It would be an ideal situation for him because I don't take guys down to the ground, and after that's all said and done in the cage, I would be willing to step inside of the ring with him too, something we all knew Randy Couture wouldn't do with James Toney. I know Floyd (Mayweather) isn't looking to do MMA, but I would still be willing to fight Mayweather and Pacquiao in a boxing match and both camps have been reached, so we will see what happens. I will put it this way, both camps have been reached and both camps were very interested."

Just a few weeks before his rematch with Nick Diaz in San Jose, former Elite XC Lightweight Champion and current Strikeforce attraction KJ Noons lets it be known that he wants to be atop the very short list of professional fighters willing to throw hands with puissant pugilist Manny Pacquiao, who's been floating the idea of dabbling in mixed martial arts in between boxing mega-fights. Unfortunately the likelihood of ever seeing "Pac-Man" inside a cage is slim to none, but just to be safe, "King Karl" is also calling out Floyd Mayweather Jr. Is Noons just grabbing headlines? Or does his recent run in "the sweet science" put him in a position to challenge boxing's greatest fighters?
