But in China Xylocaine is illegal not unless the fight will take place in Las Vegas where Floyd rules everything from Judges, Referees, non VADA testing, Xylocaine , cathweights, GBP, Cherrypickin and Avoiding real threats like GGG, Trout, Lara or Molina.

However, if Floyd DOES decide to grow a pair, quit making unfounded, unwarranted, unconventional, UNNECESSARY accusations and INSANE unprecedented demands to FINALLY fight Manny… Then the Fight can only be in one place… The formerly named, new Cowboys Stadium!

Bobs just trying to drum up more interest in the fight and knows a May Pac fight aint going to happen as long as Manny is still contracted to TR, If he really wanted to make it happen he could negotiate a deal that would allow Manny to take it on a 1 fight deal and pay him a smaller percentage but he isnt going to do that as its just to get headlines to drum up more interest in this fight, mainly from the US and PPV.

Any discussion on a potential Mayweather/Pacquiao bout at this point in time is a waste of time. Arum has dangled this hollow bone in front of boxing fans too many times in the past yet he’s never come through with the treat.

It doesn’t matter who’s the most popular or who sells the most PPV’s, or who makes the most money or who has fought who or how he beat them. All these things don’t matter because for all of that, the fight has never happened. And now that Pac has suffered a devastating KO loss, if he lost to Mayweather, few would give Floyd the credit he deserved for beating Pacquiao. So what’s the point?

Arum is a poacher. He probably murders deer with the baiting technique and calls it “hunting.” You know, you put the bait in an open area so you have a clear unobstructed shot of the animal. You sit there and wait. You don’t “hunt” at all. Then when the deer is in clear view and within firing range, you blast him.

Arum does the same thing over and over and over. He baits boxing fans with some food he knows they badly want, then when they go for it, he mercilessly shoots them down.

I can visualize all the heads of boxing fans mounted on the walls of his home.

Thermal…By that logic the same goes for May v JMM (Pac had been there twice)… and May v Cotto… Pac destroyed him…
Pac has preformed better against the common opponents.
Pac the same as May has come up many weight classes and beaten many in each class, very little of each career has been spent in WW most has been down in the lighter weights.
I have no doubt in my mind that May will beat Pac none whatsoever… But I do not disregard either resume so easily like yourself. Or drop silly “overrated” comments, Diaz was a champ, No one denies the caliber of Barrera or Morales .

^it’s not silly. manny is overrated. it is what it is. smoke an mirrors. morales quit against him, he’s a bum too. i don’t think so highly of those guys as maybe the majority of boxing fans. manny would get schooled by floyd. he never had any true boxing skill just seemingly boundless energy somehow. hmmm.

and JMM, no need for a trilogy of fights w/ floyd, dude dusted him 12-0. easyyyyyyy.

and cotto wasn’t weight drained when floyd faced him, completely different.

manny is forever smoke and mirrors. way overrated. the most overrated in boxing history. him and oscar de la hoya who lost to anyone decent he ever faced.

Whocares

@malachi; I humbly disagree, Floyd* needs Pacquiao. Otherwise it will always look like that the greatest defensive fighter of his era avoided the greater offensive fighter of his era. People can say what they want, mayweather* started insisting on advanced testing only when the public wanted him to fight Pac. He insisted he would win anyway, even if PAC is on PEDs, but still wanted testing. If he would have been man enough and not scared, he would have not made an issue about out of the norm testing and would have just fought and beat PAC. The way PAC finished Hatton scared the Mayweather’s to death….enough said, truth spoken…

theres no hiding from the truth which is floyd/bob has the worst kind of beef going on, its deeper than the norm its personal,mental,psychological,pride beef so there for unless bob bows down to floyds terms this fight doesn’t have a pulse.i do believe manny would def fight floyd even with the smaller purse but bob will not want to give in to floyds terms cause it kills him to not be in control and i love mayweather but his ego no longer has wings its in space and its his way or the high way because he feels he doesnt need pac or bob at this stage and the truth is he’s right…yuuup!

Pac fought , Hatton in his prime ( remember that was a battle for p4p status, only when Hatton got KO’d did the Mayweather’s left overs argument happened.
Diaz in his prime, Marquez in his prime, Morales, Barerra, Clottey…. all around the age of 30, most boxers are in their prime from their late 20s to their early 30s. very few are in there prime in their early 20s.

He maliciously slandered Pacquiao’s good name by accusing him of being a drug cheat simply because his fragile ego couldn’t handle the fact that Pacquiao had outperformed him against common opponents and then he expected Pacquiao to come to the negotiating table and be al smiles and handshakes. Truth be told he never wanted Pacquiao at the table. He concocted that whole you need to take the test saga to ensure the fight never happened. He knew Pacquiao would’ve knocked him out if they ever fought

Posted November 22, 2013 12:04 am

He should never have accused Pacquiao of being dirty either. That was extremely disrespectful and rude of him the way he went about that. And it was a totally baseless and malicious accusation. What made it even worse was the way he then tried to boss Pacquiao about and dictate terms like he was the one in charge. You don’t go banding around malicious and unfounded accusations about someone being a drug cheat and then start acting like Mr Boss Man telling them this is how isn’t going to be. Who the hell does he think he is treating Pacquiao like that? No wonder Pacquiao took offence. So would I if someone treat me like that.

Posted November 22, 2013 12:04 am

Mayweather would never have fought a prime Pacquiao. Don’t you guys get it yet? He doesn’t fight great fighters while they’re in their prime. He waits till they’re old and toothless before he makes his move. He’s ”been at the top for 17 years” but has never fought one. There’s no way that’s a coincidence. He’s too ”worried about his health” to take risks of that magnitude. He shouldn’t have put needless barriers and obstacles in the way of the fight against Pacman from happening. None of Paquiao’s other opponents did. None of them were too worried about their health and none of them were scared.

Lightsout– I agree I don’t think that he hits harder than Canelo, I also NEVER inferred that does.
I stated the JMM was afraid to pull the trigger that night and that Manny has not issues pulling the trigger (Bradley exception). Cotto landed a few shots and is is as slow as a wet week compared to Pac’s hand speed. I merely stated that he would land on Mayweather and that Mayweather would look worse than he did at the end of the COTTO fight.

Boxing promoters are ALL dodgy liars, cheats and scumbags… They make their money from other people punching each other. They do not really care if a fighter is done, they will just replace them. Sure they may lose a cash cow to brain damage but another will come along.

Nathan- no way Pacman hits hard than Canelo who weights 170 @ fight night. If pacman attacks he’ll miss and Mayweather will make him pay. I don’t see mayweather losing one rd in that fight. Mayweather schooled cotto(first 7-8 rds) then changed to stand toe to toe. Why? Not sure ..maybe for the fight fans?

Lightsout… I don’t think it would go that way all.
JMM struggled to pull the trigger that night and Floyd had his way with him. JMM is a counter puncher that doesn’t mind a brawl if it the brawl is brought to him. With the exception of the Bradley fight PAC has never had an issue pulling the trigger. Yes he might get countered all night but with the awkward angles Pac brings from a southpaw stance he WILL land on Floyd. I still maintain that Floyd would win but he will get hit and will look worse than he did at the end of the Cotto fight.

F#ck bob arum . Mayweather vs pacman would go just like the mayweather vs JMM. Pacman get whipped all 12 rds by Mayweather. The only way this fight happens if Top Stink gets dropped by pacman. Mayweather gets the fight game- make mega fights and go down in history as one of thee best. Not hiding behind top stink: I don’t like needles, no drug test, or Bob arums outdoor Stadium BS. Bobs trying to steal your money so he can keep buying the high graded weed so him and Chavez Jr can keep smoking. Pacman vs Rios ,Rios got schooled by Abril – a guy no where near pacman level.

I think its funny that people still entertain what comes out of Arum’s mouth. This is called “promotion”.

He speaks about a potential Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight (whcih EVERYONE should know is NOT going to happen) to generate more interest in the Pacquiao vs Rios fight.

Floyd is not going to do any business with Top Rank or Bob Arum period. If Manny becomes a free agent, or for whatever reason no longer has ties to Arum maybe it will happen. But until then its laughable to think otherwise.

KC, anytime soldier. Nathan at this point Junior does appear to have the upper hand. I need to see how Pacquiao looks against this kid Rios. Its like when Duran hit the comeback trail so fo speak after his unsportsmanlike waving no mas to Ray Leonard. I was curious to see if Duran would get his rythm ba,k and regain his previous form. He eventually did after an embarrassing loss to.Kirkland Lang where he looked disinterested. With Manny I have no doubts about the desire. Im interested in his form and physical state at this point. He did look very sharp in that loss to Marquez before he got careless. I saw some minor slippage but not enough to say he is a stepping stone now. In fact I do believe if he equals that form he could give junior WORLDS of concern, which is wny I doubt the bout will take plave. Junior has slipped also. Don’t be fooled by these not ready for prime time foes he’s engaged lately. Still he has less wear and tear. I will wait and see hoe is his balance and form and refkexes saturday night. Pea e soldier.

I think Floyd’s greed will eventually take over and he will take the fight with PAC he is “Money Mayweather” after all. Although I am a huge fan of Pac not only for how he goes about his work in the ring but how he conducts himself out of it.

Nathan that is an interesting scenario an perhaps some merits to that. Unfortunately captain I don’t see it happening. I must say ironically if Don king was involved with Arum on this, this fivht woukd have likely been made. As devious as both men are I five them their due. They together mafe the big fibhts happen back in the glory days of boxing. Don ki.g said as much some time ago in regards to this. His rival Arum chuckled but he did agree on that statement. On another note, I am rooting for Pacquiao this weekend. He has maintained his dignity and overall sportsmanship while he was away as a lpt of people made it their lifes mission to denigrate him . Why? Who knows. However he has earned my respect.and admiration as a fighter and as a man. Cheers soldier.

Seems at this point in time BA’s plan is this: Punching bag Rios is the highlight reel KO victim to restart Pacquiao’s revenue machine. And Chinny Kahn will be the highlight reel KO victim to supercharge Mayweather’s revenue machine. Then both Pacquiao and Mayweather coming off spectacular-looking performances will be able to generate incredible fan excitement and the promoters, knowing their stars are now nearing the end of peaks, will finally be willing to make a deal. Expect the long-awaited $100M dollar fight to arrive in 2014.

Manny Pacquiao is the Peoples Champion. The excitement has been building for months for Manny to make his way back to the squared circle. Manny is going to put a hurt on Rios in the same way that Larry Holmes put on Randall Tex Cobb. This will be a one way slaughter. Manny will make his triumphant return to the ring. Manny has the boxing world mesmerized right now as I write. All the sports stations are clamoring for his interviews. This is not about Garcia, Roach Ariza or any other camp member. This is about the greatest fighter of his era and arguably the greatest fighter of all time, Manny Pacquiao. The rest is a side show. Rios knows deep down that he is out gunned. Let’s not fool ourselves. Rios is a strong, courageous relentless big fighter that comes in as a full fledged warrior. He puts it all out there as all fighters should (except Mayweather). Unfortunately for him, he’s facing the most talented and exciting fighter in boxing. The cat like reflexes coupled with super heavyweight power in both hands. Manny has the athleticism and agility of Michael Jordan, GSP, Jerry Rice, Gretzky, Willie Mays and Sugar ray Robinson all wrapped up in one. Rios will find out what the living legend is all about. This iconic superstar will once again sit on his throne, and haters will be forced to applaud, appreciate and acknowledge a truly great fighter and human being. Manny is the best.

When Pacquiao agreed to everything He had a fight lined up with Bradley… Next he lined up a fight with Marquez…

Recently Marquez said, “I’m coming off 2 losses so I have to win this fight.” and to Floyd, after saying he still wants the fight “Let’s DO it.”

Of course he wants the fight. Now that he’s willing to negotiate reasonably and picked the right opponent — all he has to do is get a WIN!!!

Posted November 21, 2013 6:48 pm

Tark, so you pretty much think the fight is a done deal with Mayweather/Pacquiao? Manny of course will have to win vs Rios, which shouldn’t be a problem. I’m not sure just yet. After Manny wins in stunning fashion (my opinion), I think greed and ego by promoters and Floyd will hinder the fight once again. Mayweather always seems to come out with something. Why when Pacquiao came out on ESPN”S First Take giving Floyd what he wanted, why didn’t Floyd give a response. I heard him basically say that Pacquiao doesn’t deserve the fight. Floyd just never seems very comfortable or confident in making the fight happen. I don’t think Floyd will sign. I hope I’m wrong.

Hecdog when your fight is only expecting to pull maybe 750 thousand PPV buys, you are no longer the draw when compared to Floyd. And since Pac hasn’t been drawing like he used to he doesn’t get the lions share. That is crazy thinking. Ever since the Mosley fight he hasn’t sold a million buys unless it was with Marquez. Not even sure if that has happened since Arum has stopped saying what Pacs PPV buys are anymore. Pretty sure because he is always behind Floyd in sells.

Hec Dog…, Pacquiao already SAID that Floyd deserves most of the money and he was willing to split 55/45… He already SAID he will do random OSDTing “between rounds if that’s what Floyd wants.”

So all the roadblocks to the fight have been overcome. They’re all obliterated except ONE!!!!

Pacman has to win a fight… He’s got a hand picked opponent… He should accomplish win… Then May-Pac is as good as DONE DONE DONE!!!

Arum.. “Just don’t trip over a shoelace and get your ass KO’d again.”

Pacman.., “HAHAHAHAHAHA”

Boxing is full of Cynics, Floyd will be known as an all time great and as the man who didnt fight Manny Pacqiauo……whatever the reason, if Manny looks good on Saturday which I believe he will then this fight is back on. The PPV will be through the roof and is the only way for Floyd, that or a great under card as with Garcia and Matthyse. I think the fight will be made.

Hec Dog – MP won’t get the lions share. Everyone knows this. FMM is the biggest PPV draw ever! He still has that 0 to his advantage. What MP does outside the ring doesn’t matter in boxing. It’s what he has done lately in boxing that really determines the bigger fight purse. Just calm down a bit and be realistic.

Arum should start his ranting and raving about a Mayweather fight after Manny fights and beats Rios. No need right now. And yes, Manny Pacquiao gets the lion’s share of the money. He’ the sell, not Mayweather. Hatton, Oscar, Cotto, they were the one drawing for Mayweather while Manny draws all by himself. His popularity is unquestioned. Manny will beat Mayweather should they fight. On Saturday, you’ll see just how much Manny has left. Manny is a congressman of a country, let’s see Floyd try that. Manny is one of the top singers in the world along with one of the top actors in the world. President Obama invited Manny to the White House. Now, you tell me who’s more marketable and popular world wide. Manny should get the lion’s share no questions asked.

Floyd does not need Manny to be ranked as an all time great. He is already an all time great. They can do what ever they want and both will be ranked as all time greats.

TO “The Best”: we will see Saturday night about MP being washed up. I think you are in for a major surprise IMO.

FM needs a win over MP to rank him as an ATG boxer. This fight would be a toss up of who wins but if it gets made, I will definitely be watching.

I HOPE EVERYONE BOYCOTTS THIS JOKE OF A FIGHT> MANNY IS WASHED AND MAYWEATHER KNOWS IT.

Bob only mentioned team Mayweather, what about GoldenBoy who Mayweather co-promotes with. I can see to old Bob posturing already.

Also if he happens to be cut against Rios will 6 months be enough time for the cut to heal because we already know 5 months wasn’t.

This is the Bob Arum pre-show. Arum talks about how he want to make the fight then make it not happen. When Mayweather said all I want is up to the day testing and you get everything you want the fight should have been made then. I think when Arum is really serious or completely out of the way will this fight get made. I think I won’t get made this time because Arum will want too much money, he will be going for a cash out no Manny.

Fight won’t happen. Not only is it too late, but a win over Rios does not get you a fight with Floyd. Will Pac be willing to take the random drug test? Will Arum have the out door stadium built in time? These are all questions that need be answered before negotiations start.

I used to (2 years ago) think Floyd should be happy with 50-50, but not anymore, he’s the money maker now…his PPV numbers don’t lie. He deserves the bigger split.

We will see what happens after Saturday night. Arum maybe getting ahead of himself. If Rios pulls off a 3rd PAC upset, will he get a shot a Money Mayweather?

To late, its not that im not slightly intrested in thks fight I just know it wont do much for floyds legacy and conferms that hes back to his old tricks of cherry picking.

Posted November 21, 2013 2:30 pm 


Titopa

He’s said this how many times? Yet he insists Manny should get the lions share when we ALL know Floyd is the PPV king, numbers do NOT lie and Floyd has PROVEN over and over that he generates the most revenue over ANY OTHER BOXER ON THE PLANET!! 60-40 for Floyd and this fight gets made.

Tark- Ríos is getting knocked out, my man.

A May-Pac fight is a reason Pac is likely to get D over Rios if it’s close.

There are 2 bets I like in Pac-Rios. One is the over because this fight is going past 9.5 rounds. One is Pacquiao by decision which I think has a 90% chance of happening. Rios has a great chin and will probably mount a furious charge in the championship rounds if he’s as fit as he looks. So putting 60% on the over and the rest on Pac by D limits the risk. But I think you wait until the weigh-in because Rios, and Robert Garcia, have a history there.

Andre Ward at Floyd-Canelo weigh-in.., “Canelo looks bad… He looks weak.”
