Pacquiao says little floyd has to be with Arum to get the fight. That makes about as much sense. What an Idi*t.

Pacquiao fight will not happen cuz your scared.I see it in your eyes evey time Mannys name is mentioned.You can dart around the ring like a chicken and escape against previous opponents but you know Pac is the fox!

Past it’s due date? Why are their over 500 posts about a potential Mayweather/Pacquiao fight in this article alone? In the past I’ve also said this fight was long past it’s due date, but now I’m thinking the fight needs to be made so everyone and boxing itself can move on from the perpetual BS that surrounds the probability of this fight happening. Or not.

Floyd is now using Arum as the sole excuse as to why this fight will never happen. Frankly, I think he ought to concede and make the fight, then we’ll see if Arum and/or Pacquiao come up with their own set of excuses–again–as to why the fight can’t be made.

All in all, it’s just a pathetic rubber match. The bouncing seems to go on forever for no particular reason except to make news and stay in the headlines.

Provodnikov beat Bradley, but was cheated. Provodnikov left Bradley on the canvas and in very bad shape, if not for Bradley’s referee and judges, he would have lost. If Pac were to leave Bob Arum, then Void would make up another excuse…………….watch and see……….Void is a coward……….

Bradley CLEARLY beat Prov with his BOXING skills! Prov UNDOUBTEDLY LANDED some SERIOUS BOMBS, but Bradley kept his cool and outlanded him with a “boxing” display, which was still manifested under some serious PRESSURE, even LANDING a few BOMBS of his own…..Bradley SHOWED true GRIT & character in that fight!! I dont believe Prov would do better if a rematch occurred – he’s a one dimensional banger that brings fireworks, but LACKS overall skills……he’d be considered “fun to watch!”

“Beat Pac, Prov, and Marquez in his last 3 Fights. WOW!!!” – BoxRetard reveals his true stupidity. Everyone knows Bradley obv lost a wide deicision to Pac. He got his head bashed in and arguably lost to Provo. His one clear win was over Marquez. So in the real world Bradley lost 2 of his last 3 fights.

Khans problem is left hooks not jab-straight rights. Prescott, Garcia – it was the hook. DIaz put him down with it.

Even when Maidana had him in trouble with a right it wasn`t straight or following a jab, he was just pressing and looping hail mary shots.

Posted December 21, 2013 8:07 pm 


TARK

Plus… I always said Khan had massive defensive and infighting problems… I said his stance was bad, his defensiive skills were nowhere… I compared him to Wilfred Benitez… You couldn’t miss Benitez if you had a great jab or straight right hand — and stayed active… You were bound to nail him — same with Khan.

Posted December 21, 2013 7:52 pm

Sredmond… You’re lying again… I never thought Khan was the 2nd coming after he beat Judah… I even said he should be DISQUALIFIED because he held Judah’s head down while he ripped him with a low shot… You don’t know WTF you’re talking about.

One of the problem with being super good — and not being an American — it’s going to be tough for Lara to get the fights he deserved… It happened for Sergio Martinez after about 4 years of trying to get a championship fight at 154, 160 opened up for him when he was about 34 or 35.

He proved to be an even better 160-pounder than 154-pounder, but Pavlik didn’t know that at the time. Pavlik’s team had little to judge Martinez on and Sergio lucked out after being screwed for many years.

Rigondeaux got lucky too. Donaire figured Rigo was too green at the pro game. Lara just has to bid his time — and make sure he dominates his fights. He has to make it extremely obvious he won a round or he won’t get it. He knows he won’t get any favors so he has to work twice as hard.

Posted December 21, 2013 7:43 pm 


TARK

Rigondeaux isn’t a murderous KO puncher… Neither is Floyd… You don’t have to punch like GGG or Kovalev to be a great boxer.

What I meant is; They protect guys like Cotto from guys like Lare.

You won’t see that fight in a lifetime… Guaranteed… Trout had little choice but to fight Lara. He had to risk fighting a super tough guy.

Posted December 21, 2013 7:32 pm 


SREDMOND

Really Tark? Lara is “not beating the hell” of that many fighters… You act like he is a murderous KO puncher… He is a solid boxer puncher with an emphasis on boxer… His low energy affairs {Trout, Vanes) do not put him at the top of peoples minds when action is the order of the day… He can fight but you are going crazy again…

Posted December 21, 2013 7:14 pm 


SREDMOND

How do they “Protect Cotto from Trout” when Cotto already fought Trout? Lara is simply the LATEST guy you are all over I remember when you thought Khan was the second coming AFTER he beat Judah… Cotto is gonna get his paydays and Lara brings NO money to the table… Cotto was discussing Canelo and Martinez BOTH of whom bring risk to this veteran fighter with their size and power… But because you have Laras pole in your liver spotted hand you cannot see the reality of him not being a player in this game…

Posted December 21, 2013 7:12 pm 


TARK

How is Lara much better than Cotto????

That’s easy… Trout went into Cotto country, MSG, and damned near shut Cotto out… Lara, a hated Cuban, shut Trout out.

Lara would beat the hell out of Cotto but won’t get the chance… They protect guys like Cotto from guys like Trout.

Tark, how EXACTLY do you sell us that Garcia and Lara are “WAY better” than Cotto who is a 3 division Champion and HOFER who has more title fights than BOTH guys combined… Lara was NOT looking so potent when Angulo was putting him on the ground in fact he was looking very “Adrian Broner” to his credit he broke Angulos face and got the win… Then he outpoints Trout coming off a loss, he did NOT smash Trout or KO him… Garcia is a HOT young fighter but he is relatively new to the game, that was a nice win against Matthysee but this same fighter looked SUSPECT in the latter rounds against Judah and had to battle an OLD Erik Morales first time out for the win…As for Pacquiao like Floyd he is an ATG, that said there is a CLEAR blueprint to beat the now defanged Pacquiao who had his ferocity tempered by FMJ plaything Juan Manuel Marquez… What are the odds that Garcia and Lara will have the career that Cotto has??? NOT very good! Miguel accomplished ALOT in the sport and beat the BEST boxers of his era these guys have a LONG way to go… AGAIN step off the bandwagon because should they lose you will toss them like you did Broner and Canelo…

TARK

It doesn’t matter if Floyd is the undefeated GOAT of all time right now… He may not be undefeated if he fights Lara, Garcia, and Pac… Cotto is the man Floyd has reiterated was his toughest opponent so far…

Cotto is a great boxer with a masterful jab, and a fair punch — but Miguel is not very big, tall, rangy, or strong. He’s easily overpowered. The much bigger Trout beat Cotto just as easily as Floyd did.

Now… Lara, Garcia, and Pac are a lot better than Cotto… Floyd best duck them, lest he get beaten and his “0″ taken. If that happens he may not be the GOAT after all.

Posted December 21, 2013 4:56 pm

The failure in the argument of most Mayweather detractors I find most consistent is their ability to find a MAGIC date or set of circumstances where his beaten opponents could have prevailed… We hear this OVER and OVER yet Mayweather gets OLDER, GOES to Jail, gets sued, moves up in weight and keeps winning…They worry that Pacquiao cannot cut it NOW or in the future against the OLDER MAYWEATHER…. They dismiss his far younger World Championship opponents as Not ready or wrong style…
Fact is that a prime Mayweather was untouchable and even past his prime the man has made fools of all of you LOL!

Pacquiao has a contract with Arum that will expire soon… He probably won’t renew the contract … and Floyd will have run out of excuses to fight Pacquiao by 2015.

Meanwhile… If he fights Lara and Garcia he might get his shiny kicked anyway… I’m not predicting they will beat Floyd… They just have a better chance than anyone so far and will lay real shots on Floyd like Cotto did … only at a faster and more furious pace.

Manny’s first three fights with Marquez could have gone either way. Manny’s fight with Bradley should have gone only one way – in Manny’s favor. Bradley gave a good account of himself but did not deserve to win or even draw. If you can’t tell the difference get your eyes checked.

I want to see Mayweather-Pacquiao as much as the next guy, especially now that FM is seemingly out of credible opponents. But what fans have to understand is that the only thing bigger than Mayweather’s talent and bank account is his HUGE ego. He used to fight for Top Rank. He and Bob Arum have sued each other. And on & on. Mayweather vs. Pacquiao has not happened because Mayweather and Arum hate each other. Neither one wants to give in to the other. If Pacquiao was a promotional free agent or if Arum agreed to a step aside fee to let GBP handle the fight promotion, the fight would be announced in about a week. But that’s not going to happen. This fight is never going to happen. And if by some miracle it does happen, it will have much of its luster like Jones Jr. vs. Hopkins II.

I confess: I’m a Mayweather hater. Been rooting for him to lose since about 2006. That aside, I recognize that he is a great fighter, one of the best ever. Talk of Floyd ducking or being scared of Manny is just plain comical to me. The guy has dominated every world class prizefighter he’s ever faced. He’s not afraid of anyone.

Posted December 21, 2013 9:00 am

Now, I can really say that Floyd is avoiding Manny. I just can’t understand his logic. If he hates Arum so much…then beat his cash cow and walk away $100M+ richer doing it. I like them both, and I believe that Floyd has the edge over pacman because of his size and defensive genius. I just don’t know why he’s not fighting manny. And if I were him, he should stop talking. His statement looked like an excuse, and the more he talks, the more he contradicts himself and looked bad in the process.

Posted December 21, 2013 8:18 am 


The Prince

Havoc – Fear has nothing to do with it. It’s a personal vendetta that started when Floyd wanted to leave and Arum tried to stop him. The feeling is not one sided, Arum is just as guilty and just as determined NOT to work with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Golden Boy Promotions. Really, the only way the fight can happen is if Pacquiao leaves Top Rank after getting an impressive win in 2014. If that happens and Floyd comes up with something else, then even I’ll start saying Mayweather sees something dangerous in Pacquiao, because he fought Cotto after he left Top Rank.

Posted December 21, 2013 8:02 am 


Big Ham

Bradley is actually in need of a good win Boxtra. Pac fight was a robbery, Provo fight was a breakout performance for Ruslan, Tim walked away from that one concussed and booed in his home town. The Marquez fight was a good win, but not an impressive one. The circumstances of JMM having beaten Pac made it significant. But JMM himself is not a WW, i would not even say he is a solid elite top proven JW. More of an ATG lightweight who bulked up a bit who is also 40 years old and right at the end of his career. I enjoyed watching Bradley’s rise to the top when he was on showtime. He has some making up to do to substantiate himself. He actually did duck Amir Khan which is pretty pathetic you know. He could have won that fight. I think he will get the Pac rematch because of the convenience factor of them being mutually promoted by Arum. I forecast a close fight. Could go either way.

No new news HERE. Floyd hasn’t fought any Arum promoted Fighters since he left Top Rank. IF Pac wants the Fight all he has to DO is drop Arum like Cotto DID. IF he was SMART he would act as IF he has dropped Arum and then pay Arum on the backend IF he feels like he owes Arum something. Use your HEAD Pac. Floud does NOT face guys that bring Top Rank to the table. Cotto agrees with ME on that. And SO does Margarito.

Yet more excuses from Mayweather” Just like he’s done for the last 5years ever since the name Manny Pacquiao was first mentiones as an opponent for him! What a true coward this guy .is!

Posted December 21, 2013 3:15 am 


Big Ham

Someone mentioned Pac should get a release clause so that he can fight Floyd without Arum involved. I think it is a good idea. Manny could have a private fee agreement with Bob, pay him say a 10M flat fee. This happens all the time in boxing as “step aside” money when a fighter chooses not to fight his Mandatory. Manny is simple and loyal though so he likely would not go for it unless he needed the money badly. Shane Mosley and Miguel Cotto, left Golden Boy and Top Rank specifically to fight Manny and Floyd respectively. It definitely happens. I know if i was a star fighter i would want a special contract that allowed me fight against rival promoters fighters as a free agent if terms could not be met between the two promotors. I would like to see the big shot managers of the sport like Al Haymon and Cameron Dunkin and Shelly Finkel start instituting this.

Posted December 21, 2013 3:06 am 


Big Ham

Thanks Prince, Oscar looked fairly healthy at 150lbs vs Steve Forbes before the Pac fight. He did cut to much weight to fast against Pacquiao. He should have gotten down to 147 near the final week of the fight and then rehydrated up to about 155. That would have been ideal for him. Oscar was never a big 154lber, that was his 5th weight class in his career. Oscar actually weighed only 148lbs the night of the fight. Bad move. Had he came in at 152-155, i think he still would have gotten creamed by Pacquiao. Now if he instead of making weight properly and got a time machine and went and brought his 1998 self back.. well than Floyd and Manny would have had a much more difficult opponent both. I am not for sure he would win. But it would be close.

Big Ham – I can respect that opinion. Have a good Holiday Season.

Posted December 21, 2013 2:56 am 


Big Ham

Prince, there is really not point in arguing but i will tell you this. I actually like and watch Floyd, i watch all the big fights. The Canelo fight to me is one of his best wins. Because he fought a much bigger fighter that had the power to hurt him. The threat was absolutely real. And also go off what people said before the fight. Before the fight people said it was a dangerous fight for FLoyd. Afterwards they said Canelo was overrated. I think Canelo is a solid fighter, but not an Elite fighter. A solid fighter with a 15lb weight advantage kinda equals out to an Elite fighter though. Now as for Pacquiao against Oscar.. Again go to what was said BEFORE the fight. It was seen as Criminal of ODLH to pick on such a smaller guy he was favored to win the fight. Both of those wins were great wins. I would not discredit either fighter for those wins.

Posted December 21, 2013 2:52 am 


The Prince

Canelo came in 20 pounds heavier than Floyd on fight night. No excuses for Canelo, especially since Canelo couldn’t’ even land clean against Mayweather like Marquez before him. And all the detractors and critics claimed Canelo at the catchweight would beat Mayweather. Again, don’t fault one guy but then excuse the other guy for doing the same thing. Manny’s catchweight against ODLH was criminal.

Posted December 21, 2013 2:45 am 


The Prince

Big Ham – Your post doesn’t change the fact that Floyd beat Hatton and ODLH first before Manny got his hands on him, and that Floyd fought Cotto above his safe weight of 147. It’s well documented how hard it is for Floyd to go up in weight above 147. Either way, Mayweather took on the tougher versions of all three fighters before and after Manny did anything with them. Don’t give one guy credit if you can’t give the other one credit. Floyd is a boxer, Manny is a slugger. So what? Manny facing those three fighters is taking on tough competition, but Mayweather doing the same isn’t? Get real.

Posted December 21, 2013 2:41 am 


Big Ham

Floyd fought cotto at 154 but he made Canelo fight at a catchweight of 152 because he knew Cotto was not a natural junior middleweight and that he felt confident that he could beat him. Cotto did not look like the animal that he once was a few years prior. He had been destroyed and knocked out twice. If you watch the version of Cotto that fought Shane Mosley ( which i beleive is his career peak) Cotto looks more muscular and larger than he does at 154. At 154 he is fatter yet still seems to lack some of the muscles definition he had in the arms and shoulders. Oscar De la Hoya is the same way. At 147 he was powerfully built when he was in his twenties. At 154 he is fat and skinny at the same time.

Posted December 21, 2013 2:41 am 


Big Ham

Prince, Cotto weighed 146 for CLotty the fight right before Pac. He came in at 146 without a mandate, he came in because it was easy for him to make 147 because he spent about 30 fights of his career making 140lbs. 1 pound one fight after did NOT weight drain him. The guy that has the disadvantage in that fight was Pac because he had over 40 fights in his career under 135lbs. Ask Adrien Broner how hard it is to fight a larger guy at a new weight class if you have any doubts. Pac fought the better version of Cotto. Floyd fought the better version of Hatton and ODLH. The difference in those fights though is that Manny blew them out of the water completely. Manny has declined physically since those fights. It happens fighters age. Mayweather like i said has great longevity. Part of it comes from not having taken tough fights and avoiding dangerous opponents, and being a defensive fighter which has spared him some punishment in the ring.

Floyd is as kind in the ring as a starving gator eating a goose.

Arum is as generous to his fighters as Floyd is kind to his opponents.

Posted December 21, 2013 2:28 am 


Big Ham

For the record i beleive Floyd can beat Manny now. I do not think he could have beat him in 2010. I also think a 2001 Shane Mosley and a 1996-2000 Era Oscar De la Hoya would have been any version and any weight class of floyd including the current one. Other rivals would have been A miguel Cotto before his 3 vicious wars with Mosely, Margarito and Pacquiao. Hatton before he was a fat cocaine snorting beer drinking multi millionaire at 140lbs, Acelino Freitas or Casamayor at 130 around 2002 i believe. Paul williams and Margarito, Vernon Forrest , Ricardo Mayora anytime during the early to mid 2000′s at 147. I won’t even get into 154 because that is not Floyds class. Floyds recent competition has actually been much better than his previous competition during earlier years. New fans may not be aware of how many people he avoided. One thing i can say about Floyd is he has outstanding longevity. Some people have that some do not. He is still fighting at a high level 17 years into his career.

They are pimping Pacquioa. Its is evident in the IRS problems he has now. I think IMO that Bob Arum is gonna cash out on Paquioa soon. Timothy Bradley is not as popular as Pacquioa so he is stuck with Pacquioa for now.

I too believe manny could beat Floyd but. I rather see manny not be a fool and end up broke and as the boxer who was worse than Tyson lost everything.
so what happen to manny 80 millions? In his last big fights? Did his managers or adviser in vest the money? Look like didn’t even pay manny taxes as he said he said he set a company to do this.

This should at least give you all clarity for his past lies. ” I will never fight him as long as he is promoted by Bob Arum” . Was Pac not promoted all this time by Bob Arum when in 2009-2011 when the fight would have actually meant something and Floyd claimed pacquiao would not “take the taste” and was ducking him ect ect. He’s always felt this way. But in 2010 even if Pacquiao was an Al Haymon fight the fight would not have been made because Floyd and Floyf’s father in particular were scared and in disbelief of the things Manny was achieving so fast and they did not want to fight him while he had that momentum. It’s very easy to see this. He has a history of doing this to in their prime elite level fighers. I am a fan of THE SPORT. I watch all the fights. But i call it how i see it.

This is some MORE bull s#it from “Pretty Boy” Floytd Mayweather Jr. Seriusly why is the fighter still around with his bad image that makes a little baby to cry? I’m so sick tired of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s GIANT EGO to death. He makes all real boxing fans sick with not only his incredible GREED but ALSO how he trash talk other fighters that they are less worth and “Don’t” sell etc. SHUT THE F£CK UP Floyd Mayweather Jr, Now I have had it with this punk.

All fans want to see Mayweather Jr vs Manny Paquiao and the fight will be a BIG seller – WE ALL know that very well.

WHO CARES IF YOU SELL MORE PPV? NO REAL BOXING FAN BUT PEOPLE WHO DON’T LOVE THE SPORT AND ITS HISTORY.
WE WANT THE GOOD FIGHTS MADE AND CARE LESS WHAT YOU MAKE FOR BIG BUCKS. PEOPLE REMEMBER THE FIGHTERS FIGHTS, DONT THE MONEYS EARNED.

This is another bad and sad ezcuse from Floyd Mayweather Jr in the long road now. So fighting a over-hyped and glass jaw Amir Khan is better then Paquiao? Now this is another point of how scared Mayweather Jr is to fight a fighter that can hurt his precius little “0″ on his paper record.

Then fight Bernard Hopkins then at middleweikght level if you want a selling fight. Fight the old legend if Manny “Pac-Man” Paquioa is to much.

“Sugar” Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, Felix “Tito” Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya etc all came from lower weight classes BUT all of them made it to become world middleweight champions even if they where BEST at lower level and that is something you have never even dared to try.

You defeated Oscar De La Hoya? Yeah BARELY with a close SD and hanging, Hopkins became the 1st and only fighter to knock-out De La Hoya and Trinidad the same and took there world title belts. So you can’t win at middleweight? Is it to hard?

People, how much of this are we put up to take? There have never been such a EGO fighter in modern time as Mayweather Jr and I wan’t him knocked down to the canvass hard now.

Why didn’t h say that in the beginning if that was the case? It’s all too convenient. He simply in search of something Pac will simply not agree with. This is the poorest excuse yet that he’s come up with to not take the fight. At least this time he found something Pac simply won’t agree to. smh

these are the reasonS why Pacquiao* is bad for boxing. he insists on calling his own shots. even following DEVASTATING Losses when a fighter’s integrity typically demands that they earn redemption before shamelessly attempting to dictate terms to the fighter who just planted them butts-up and face-first into the ring canvas (“Get Crackin”). Manny* is like a dictator who is above the expectations of a truly great professional. he’s become notorious for rewriting the rules, imposing exotic conditions, refusing stringent testing, blatantly tilting the playing-field in his favor, and shamelessly (there’s that word again) declaring the vulnerability of the selected opponents as the primary reason for targeting them in the first place. essentially sucking the competitiveness out of every mismatchup. consequently, paying fight-fans have become fatigued with a fighter who targets vulnerable opponents coming off losses while avoiding his primary rivals. These are the reasonS that Pacquiao* will be remembered as the most corrupting influence in boxing.

Time for some real facts: When Cotto’s contract was up with Top Rank, Cotto didn’t resign, because he wanted to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Floyd made it clear several times that he didn’t want to work with Top Rank (Arum), after the failed negotiations with Pacquiao the first time. So what does Cotto do? He leaves Top Rank to make the fight with Floyd; and Mayweather kept his word. Now, if people truly want to see if Mayweather is scared of Pacquiao, all Manny needs to do is leave Top Rank and prove it. Floyd will have nothing else to say after that, especially if Manny does so after rebuilding his fighter stock. Manny’s contract also came to an end the same time Cotto’s did, but Manny resigned with Top Rank instead of calling Mayweather out, which a lot of fans were begging him to do. The result? Manny gets KO’d brutally by Marquez and he loses to Bradley. Now, he’s no longer the top money producing attraction he use to be and Floyd doesn’t need to fight him at the moment. Say what you want about Khan, but Floyd would make a killing with the UK crowd and haters who’ll pray Khan shocks and world and embarrass Mayweather. Personally, I’d rather see him fight Garcia, Maidana, or Paulie, but business wise, it makes sense.

Schaefer in an interview stated that Arum can still get his share, just don’t interfere with the negotiations… well, Arum will simply not agree with that right? please find a way to get thru things and agree on terms where everyone is satisfied SPECIALLY US FIGHT FANS WHO KEEPS ALL YOUR POCKETS DEEP.

“if Pacquiao has caused Floyd to lose $50 million by not fighting him, then Floyd has caused Manny to lose just as much”(?). NO. Mayweather never refused to fight Pacquiao*. he even agreed to the outlandish $10 million overweight penalty, which was anything but an incentive to confirm the matchup. ONLY Pacquiao* spouted utterly absurd excuses for not testing to face Mayweather, which is what ultimately sabotaged their P4P $howdown when it counted. nowadays, Pacquiao* isn’t even a consensus P4Pr. Btw, $40 million for Pacquiao* sounds pretty good right about now that Pacquiao* can’t even crack 400K PPVs for his comeback bout on his home turf in Asia(?!). Face It: the paying fight crowd is on this side of the Pacific and NObody’s paying to watch Pacquiao* NOT deliver impressive wins. he also can’t lose any worse than he did v. Marquez. a $5 million flat-fee is all Pacquiao* is worth. he can make jup the balance of $35 million in the rematch IF he manages to defeat Mayweather. of course, it’s that huge and improbable “IF” that Pacquiao* can’t bring himself to risk.

SMDH. If that’s the case no one should complain about Arum, Don King, De La Hoya, or any other boxing promoter ripping of a fighter and making him broke, because they gave them their start in boxing and should be grateful for the little crumbs they get.

Okay, te tumbo, if Pacquiao has caused Floyd to lose $50 million by not fighting him, then Floyd has caused Manny to lose just as much. When Mayweather offered Pacquiao $40 million to fight him back in 2012 that was all he was willing to give Pacquiao. Floyd would keep gate revenues, PPV, revenues, sponsorship revenues, as well as a host of other revenue generating sources. Floyd was even offering to front the $10 million it might cost to promote the bout between them. Yet, it was figured that Floyd would still make much more than Manny Pacquiao.

So how did Floyd cause Pacquiao to lose $50 million? By offering him a “deal” that he COULD refuse. Why should Pac give up all those revenues that Floyd would be getting a cut of? Floyd wouldn’t have made such a huge offer to Pac if he wasn’t going to come out on the better end of it.

But in the end, they both lost. How great of a business decision did Floyd make by not offering Pacquiao 50-50 of everything if they fought? Not a good one, I’d say.

Fighting Words

It seems like Mayweather came up with a quick one to avoid Pacquiao. Previously it was a matter of taking a test. But Mayweather stone wall while fighting his hbaby’s moma and other fighters. Mind you, Bob was Pacquiao promoter when all this negotiations and stonewalling was going on. But soon as Show Time gave Mayweather Hugh multi million dollar contract for 6 fights and now that the WBC have made Pacquiao his mandatory and Pacquiao have now probably signed another extended contract with Top Rank promotion in which Pacquiao can not get out of, now all of a sudden he says as long as Pacquiao is promoted by Bob there will be no Mayweather and Pacquiao fight. So Pacquiao contract with Bob takes him to what age? And Mayweather will be what age? Or retired. Mayweather seems to be too smart for his own good

Posted December 20, 2013 7:06 pm

So you’d rather have boxers forced to fight under greedy promoters and get ripped off and brain damaged, just because you selfishly want to see a certain fight? Floyd Mayweather did what most boxers should do, break away from their greedy promoter and make his own money and call his own shots. What this article is really exposing is the REAL reason why Mayweather has a lot of haters. Heaven forbid a boxer actually takes charge and looks out for his own interest above everyone elses, especially since his putting his life on the line. Cotto was willing to leave Top Rank and fight Mayweather. Is Pacquiao willing to do the same?

Posted December 20, 2013 7:00 pm

“There’s a good reason a lot of boxers hate Arum.”

Yet Pacquiao renewed his contract with him last time it came up for renewal. So if there’s any onus it’s on Pacquiao. Perhaps if he was not financially beholden to Bob Arum things would be different. Then again, maybe not.

Posted December 20, 2013 6:58 pm

This is the reason why a fighter such as mayweather is bad for boxing, he calls his own shots, which means he is like a dictator who is above the law, he writes the rules and laws for himself and in return this is what you get a fighter who can duck and pick his own fights everytime out.

This is why Goverment got involved in making rules and regulatory bodys, to stop dictators from cheating and having nobody overseeing them , guys like floyd are above the law so to say because it appears nobody can make him fight who he dosent want to. Its starts here then gets worse.

But as you have noticed world wide, even in politics around the world, we the people when we come togather, we are the leaders and run the show not mayweather.

We could put floyd out of business in just less than 2 fights if we want to, and boycott his fights until he fights who we want and or by all rights should be fighting in the first place.

If his dispute with Arum was petty and he could beat Pac he would’ve never let something petty interfere with such a mass amount of money.

I keep scratching my head looking for a path to victory in a hypothetical matchup and I can’t find one convincing scenario where Manny dominates or stops Floyd as most of his hardcore fans claim.

He is mocking everyone and most Mayweather fans are bowing down to his egotistical, arrogant, selfish demands, and will continue to buy his PPV as he laughs at them. Fans have so much more power and control of these fights, but don’t realize it. How shameful can Floyd Mayweather get. Fans have to go back and forth because this scared little kid wants to have control or who he fights rather than take input from his own fans as well as boxing fans in general. Floyd Mayweather does not own boxing. He is not bigger than the sport. All fans have to take a stand every now and then and let these self serving athlete know that they will not support the man regardless if you like him or not. Floyd tells you that he cherry picks and laughs his way to the bank. He says he loves his haters as well because they buy his PPV’s. Stop listening to this character and don’t buy his next PPV. Trust me, a clear message and impact will be made. If you don’t, that just proves Floyd right, and he will continue to dictate and laugh at fans all the way to the bank. How sad can this situation get. Floyd is acting like a little 2 year old because he dislikes another man and so he’s not going to come out and play. He is without a doubt the most insecure individual I have ever seen. He has all the money he needs. He has all the fame he will ever need. He has everything a worldly man can ever want. And still he continues to act his childish ways in front of the world. Floyd basically says that all his BS excuses have been just that, BS! Thee only real reason is because of Bob Arum. He’s been making up excuses all along, and now he finally comes clean. What Floyd needs more than anything is a P4P psychiatrist.

If Arum had been looking out for Pacquiao’s financial welfare, he wouldn’t be in such a pickle.. Arum has stated that he “hates” businessmen fighters.. He doesn’t like to deal with sharp athletes who try to negotiate good terms for themselves. He hates a boxer who scrutinizes every line of a contract and brings in their own contract attorney—who goes over the contract crossing out large portions of it that screw the boxer over.

By the time a boxer’s attorney gets done chopping up Bob’s contracts they’re one half the size—and give the boxer a fair percentage of all the net profits from a fight. Whatever happened to Pacquiao’s 300 million dollars God only knows … There’s a good reason a lot of boxers hate Arum.

If you make million and you still can’t make money, some thing wrong a fighter career is short and the should be invested wisely. To return money when retired, that the smart way. In manny fight too much people are taking a percentage, manny did believe the fans would alway and the million would alway be there, but that not real life. Real life is you own 18 million or can’t return here where your fans are. And are broke, and you have not save to retired, and you have only one good fight left. Really he on the road to a rich and broke boxer story in the end.

HIDALGO, such a huge concession like dumping Arum would definitely soften Floyd’s hard line. you also have to consider that Pacquiao* has already cost Mayweather $50 million due to his otherwise inexplicable refusal to face Floyd over the past three years. at some point, people need to stop giving “poor Manny*” a pass and demand that he give fight-fans (NOT Arum) what we want. this sport is also a business and Pacquiao* has consistently let down the paying public with his choreographed mismatches and blatant avoidance of the best competition in every weight. Mayweather continues to take chances, continues to mature as a P4P champion, and remains undefeated. conversely, Pacquiao* continues to target vulnerable opponents, deliver increasingly “boring” and “cowardly” performances for controversial wins, losses, and one DEVASTATING KO loss. the dent on Pacquiao’s* remaining marketability is as at least as deep and profound as the dent on his mug created by “Dinamita’s” explosive right-hand.

Ok, I found it, here’s the direct quote from Mayweather’s mouth:

“The only way he’s getting a fight with me is if he signs with Mayweather Promotions. He’s got to give me fights with Mayweather Promotions. If he don’t give me no fights under Mayweather Promotions, then he’s not getting the fight. That’s how it’s working now.”

See, so Floyd never did really guarantee Pac would fight him–unless Pac met a bunch of other conditions first–like “He’s got to give me fights with Mayweather Promotions…”

Floyd’s not making excuses, huh?

Ya mama. WTF does Manny’s financial situation have to do with what happens in the ring? Or with making this fight? Arum has done plenty of financial favors for Pacquiao over the years. If he was such a bad guy for Manny, Manny wouldn’t have stuck with him for all this time. If Manny is beholden to Arum in any way, or if Arum get’s too big a piece of Manny’s pies, that’s Manny’s fault, not Arum’s. Manny has a brain, he can make up his own mind. For bejeesus sakes, Manny is a government official in his own country! You’re talking like he’s some subservient puppy dog that’s tied with a chain to a post.

Besides that, what guarantee do you have that if Pacquiao signed with Mayweather promotions that Floyd would make the fight between them happen? Don’t forget Floyd already said Pac has to have a rematch with Bradley first. Don’t forget Floyd said that Pac wasn’t on his level. What? If Pac signs with Floyd all those things Floyd has said in the past don’t mean anything?

Fine. Why do they mean anything now?

Speak for yourself Hidalgo, I’d rather see Fraud man up and defend his 154 belts against Golovkin who is happy to move down in weight and fight him, but Fraud will duck that fight too because he knows Golovkin would KO him easily.

Fraud is good at making excuses.

I don’t think Pacman can beat Fraud, his come forward style is made for Fraud, I’d expect Fraud to win a wide points decision against him.

But Golovkin is another matter altogether, Fraud would get hammered by him and he knows it!

Poor Pacquiao, he an innocent bystander in all this… arum never wanted to deal with Mayweather and Mayweather never wanted to deal with Arum… In the past Pacquiao had a little bit of leverage, that could have made the fight happen with Arum. Now that leverage is all but gone. Pacquiao may end up leaving Arum, at some point if he wants the most money he can get… I understand everyone’s frustration with this, but Maywaether has a 6 fight contract where he can prettyuch choose he he wants to fight, kind of like Apollo Creed in Rocky…

Did it really pay 2 years of taxes, or was manny rip off in a con job? So what do you trust a the same manager and arum to give manny the bulk from fighting Floyd, if you do your are stupid.
Learn from the past. After Floyd fight manny is finish retired, it’s about having money and it’s alll manny money in the Floyd fight as he still might lose, and be broke and a lost to Floyd. The sad end to a legacy. I say leave arum now and all the fight money is manny who every he fight. Be smart or be dumb .

“I love Floyd but c’mon first he’s juicing,not willing to 50 50,”loss” to Bradley, Marquez loss,bob arum, not on my level,fight under mayweather promotions, list goes on with excuses!”

Very good arguments, Boxer. In fact it was just a few days ago when Floyd claimed Pacquiao wasn’t on his level and that’s why he wouldn’t fight him. It’s was just a few months ago when Mayweather said if Pac would sign with Maywather Promotions, he’d fight him–actually, I think he said “we could make the fight happen”–but ne never actually said he would fight him. It was just a few months before that when he said Pac needed to redeem himself against Bradley before he’d fight him.

You’re right my man, the list of excuses goes on and on and on. Now is the time to fight Pacquiao. After all isn’t that what all of Mayweather’s nuthuggers claim–that Mayweather fights fighters coming off of wins, not losses? Well, here’s Manny! Come and get him.

Wow! What a low blow to boxing!

Bob Arum is a good enough reason for a Mayweather/Pacquiao fight not to happen? Sorry, but I have to think Floyd has made himself the perfect excuse for not fighting Pacquiao. Now we know that fight will never happen unless Pacquiao leaves Arum.

So, one can fairly ask himself, what about the $40 mil that Mayweather offered Pac in 2012? Just a bluff? Maybe all along he just made that offer to look like the good guy and look like he wanted to fight when he didn’t? After all, Arum was Pacquiao’s promoter then.

This is the fight most boxing fans and most of the boxing world want to see. It’s the fight that most everyone who knows anything about boxing wants to see. But Floyd refuses to make a fight with Bob Arum. Sorry, I just don’t buy Floyd’s reason. If ever he appears to be ducking Manny Pacquiao, that would be now.

Manny just tromped Brandon Rios and put on a performance against him that Floyd himself could do no better. Now Floyd says he won’t fight Manny as long as he’s represented by Arum.

Very, very interesting, to say the least.

‘We all know the Pacquiao fight, at this particular time, will never happen, and the reason why the fight won’t happen is because I will never do business with Bob Arum in life, and Pacquiao is Bob Arum’s fighter,’ Mayweather told Fight Hype.
‘Bob Arum gives Pacquiao a date, whereas Floyd Mayweather gives Floyd Mayweather his own date. I will be fighting again in May and September.’
Mayweather also hinted that he does not believe the eight-division world champion is a big enough draw.
Pacquiao’s win over Brandon Rios in Macau last month achieved 475,000 pay-per-view buys compared to 2.2m for Mayweather’s masterclass against Saul Alvarez in September.
‘I want to see Manny Pacquiao’s real pay-per-view numbers,’ added Mayweather. ‘Get them from his last fight and compare them to my numbers with Canelo Alvarez.

Kahn is a easy choice reason why, He is huge in the UK and alot of people with buy the fight on ppv. Kahn will easily agree to the terms and they will both walk away very rich men. Unlike Manny there is no Arum so Kahn fight is about money it will sell out vegas, Manny cannot be worked out because of Arum who been e torn since 09 when Manny was on top. Richard Schaffer, Oscar even 50 cent, tried to get Manny to fight Floyd and no one could work with Arum. Floyd called Manny personally and offered him 40 miliion and he turned it down, Arum hope is that he can keep matching Manny up with other Top rank fighters like Ruslan, Bradley and Marquez and the WBC will make Manny a mandatory or people will say Floyd is scared that force him to fight. That way he will be in the position to diictate the terms, its not happening none of that has worked Floyd can fight guys like Kahn and Alverez and make 100 mil, Manny fight bums like Rios and gets paid peanuts,

Won’t fight cause I don’t like Arum… Wake up to reality folks… Floyd is an incredibly greedy guy and is saying “no” to a pay day that would dwarf all others? He is saying “no,” not because of any of the above lame excuses, but because Mayweather is pooping in his boxing shorts at the prospect of being KO’d by Pacman. He can’t live with the idea of seeing the media myth that is in invisible, popping like a bubble in his face. Mayweather is definitely not an all time great… his own refusal to fight Pac, year after year after year, shows that he isn’t even the best fighter of his weight class, in his generation!

When are people going to realize that he dosent want Manny to fight Floyd he never was. Top ranks history included Floyd, Oscar and Cotto. Floyd left top rank because he wanted bigger fights, Same with Oscar and Cotto. He handcuffs with fighters and keeps all them in house and broke that why Mannys in tax trouble, Manny is the most ignorant dude in the sport and his loyalty will leave him broke with nothing at the end of his career, No one has interest in working with Arum who wnats a lions share of the money. Manny is not even a draw anymore and he is desperate to make money. Look at the rios fight it had less than 550.000 ppv, Floyd tried many times to fight Manny even offered him 40 million and he turned it down, Now he was to get in line because fighters are lining up for a shot at Floyd. Arum will match Manny up with Ruslan, Bradley or Marquez. Its amazing how people can think Floyd has the power to fight Manny when Arum never wanted it to begun with, so they say fear and all of the other nonsense when the reality is Top ranks plays all his fighters and Manny is getting played like a piano…

Yes, just keep on pumping out those excuses Floyd. Don’t worry about consistency (I doubt you know what it means, and I’m damned sure you can’t spell it). In any case, your place in history is already secured:

“Floyd Mayweather Jr was a talented fighter who is remembered more for his cowardice than his fights, none of which were exciting or memorable. He made a fortune in his 30s, but after his boxing career was over managed to get into enormous debts in order to fund his extravagant, cocaine-fuelled lifestyle. Upon being declared bankrupt and spending time in jail for tax evasion and wife-beating in 2020, Mayweather Jr realised he had never had a true friend in his life and suffered from years of poverty and depression. He died in jail aged 50 after making the mistake of getting into a fight with a fellow inmate who weighed more than 154 pounds.”
