Arum makes PAC money plain and simple. Technically Arum is a great promoter\Agent.Posted October 12, 2012 10:03 pm
Btw, Pacquiao’s* name ain’t what it used to be. he barely hit respectable numbers for his title-fight v. a prime and undefeated Bradley. people are hip to Pacquiao’s* con and are no longer willing to ante-up for another Top Rank set-up.Posted October 12, 2012 6:32 pm
Arum might matchup Pacquiao* with the loser of this matchup but not the winner. i mean, i can’t recall the last time Pacquiao* defeated a prime and peaking fighter. besides, if Bradley was able to last and prevail over Pacquiao* in 12, then Rios or Alvarado can embarrass Punkuiao* too.Posted October 12, 2012 6:29 pm
Using Pacquiao’s name to big up the fight. Nothing but shyte comes out of this guy’s mouth.Posted October 12, 2012 6:13 pm
You guys seem too have some kind
what a joke! both guys a barely B level fighters and both tailor made for pacs style. pac can’t beat a good technical boxer so they’re gonna match him with eitherof these guys who are barely worldclass. Rios is a joke and got schooled 11 rounds to 1 by Abril!!! He sucks. Pac is the biggest fraud in boxing history, so carefully matched it’s disgusting. And the moron re-signs with Arum which just proves he has no desire to fight decent opponents or make the mayweather fight. Whata ducking dummy- Pac/Mayweather/DLH leave Arum and make the biggest fights and paydays of their careers yet Pac opts to stay wioth him. FRAUD!!!!!Posted October 12, 2012 12:46 pm
E in Denver
This is just a motivational gimmick from Arum. Arum was tellling Alvarado if he won (vs Prescott) he would get a fight w/ Marquez. That didn’t happen. It would be a great payday for either fighter. However neither are ready to face Pac who is not only more experienced & gifted, but also a division higher than both. Plenty of good fights to be made at 140 for either of these guys.Posted October 12, 2012 12:09 pm
The whole point of working in life is to eventually ‘BE YOUR OWN BOSS & CALL YOUR OWN SHOTS’. Why work for Arum forever!!?? Pac is an employee, Floyd is a boss. Floyd’s been paying Goldenboy a flat fee, NOT a percentage, to help promote his fights since 2007, so staying an un-signed fighter allows Floyd to keep majority of his earnings. Its the reason why Floyd was named #1 by forbes for worlds richest athlete with NO endorsments. Pac has a number of endorsments plus boxing earnings and still is #2 behind Floyd. Ppl talk how Pac is so loved all over the world and has more fans than Floyd, but where are they at ppv time????? Floyd beats him there too. Ppl brag about how Pac holds congressional office in the Phillipines, but he doesnt control his own boxing career. Someone please explain that. He’s at a point that he can promote his own fights with his name alone. A Floyd vs Pac fight would not need too much help of a major promoter. I just dont get it. Is Pac really that dumb to re-sign….Or is something else going on???? Does Arum know something about the PED’s story that we dont…. And anyway Floyd would beat Pacquaio, 4yrs ago or today. Period!!!Posted October 12, 2012 11:43 am
And this is exactly why I laugh at those clowns who claim Mayweather is scared of Pacquaio, Bob Arum has no interest in making that fight happen.Posted October 12, 2012 11:10 am
but why is he trying to fight these guys?i believe it’s because they are taylor made for pac and everybody knows that but i’m not so sure he’s going to get past marquez this time he’s going to be un lucky…yuuuuup!Posted October 12, 2012 9:37 am
PAC IS THE ONLY BOXER WHO HOLDS THE TITLE 8 DIVISION CHAMPION.
NO ONE ELSE.
THERE ARE MANY BOXER WHO HAS MORE WINS THAN FLOYD, JR. WITH ZERO LOSS RECORD BEFORE THEY LOST OR RETIRED.
A DOZEN OF THEM.
FLOYD’S A HYPE MADE BY GENIUSES INSIDE MAYWEATHER CAMP UTILIZING MEDIAMEN AND BLINDED FANS.
TELL ME NOW : WHO’S GREATER THAN WHO ?Posted October 12, 2012 8:13 am
ARUM BEING A HARVARD GRADUATE, A LAWYER AND A BUSINESSMAN KNOWS HIS MOVE.
FOR HIM DEALING WITH FLOYD MAYWEATHER, JR. IS A WASTE OF TIME, EFFORT AND MONEY.
HIS BUSINESS AS A BOXING PROMOTER MUST GO ON WITHOUT FLOYD, JR.
FLOYD, JR. MAY KISS HIS BELOVED “ZERO” EVERY TIME HE TAKES A SHOWER AND BEFORE HE GOES TO BED.Posted October 12, 2012 8:06 am
Arum is sinale already, poor guy.Posted October 12, 2012 4:40 am
Can’t blame him though. It’s HARD to face 3 P4P Fighters in a row for about 99.99999% of ALL human beings. That’s why every time I think about Floyd being the ONLY man to ever do it in History and then WIN them all by LANDSLIDE to put the cherry on Top I say WOW.Posted October 12, 2012 4:09 am
Its simple, put Pacquiao in the ring against a comprised face first plodder and he’ll look awsome again..primed or not, Manny will always get outboxed against durable fighters with above average boxing skill.Posted October 12, 2012 3:31 am
Pac isn’t the fighter he was just 2 years ago but neither of these guys could stand with him. Not even a fight worth talking about IMO. It is already too late to make Pac vs Mayweather so I don’t really care what Pac does anymore.Posted October 12, 2012 2:44 am
The Mad Scientist
I dont mind seeing the winner of Rios/Alvarado get a crack at Pacquiao..better yet Pac/Marq vs Rios/Alvarado, winners can fight each other and so can the losers..thats the list Arum can do since he wants to keep feeding us in-house fights..besides, Bam-bam and Mile-high will need a huge payday after their brutal street fight to secure them financially..this saturday night might be the end for one if not both..Posted October 12, 2012 1:34 am
LMAO. Arum comes right out and says no we’re not interesting in fighting Mayweather in the near future.Posted October 11, 2012 11:23 pm
And Cotto isnt tailor made for Pac? Mayweather wont happen until their both 50 so forget about it, Pac has to look good against Marquez first, why doesnt Bradley fight the winner of Alvarado and Rios then the winner can fight the winner of Pac / Marquez, I think with three out of four top rank fighters in there I think even Arum would go for those odds…Posted October 11, 2012 9:46 pm
So I am assuming that cherry picking Pac is dropping to their weight which is 140? Yeah right ,the punk will make them go up on weight, they should tell him to F off.Posted October 11, 2012 9:33 pm
He’s just trying to let everyone know ahead of time that it won’t be MayweatherPosted October 11, 2012 8:53 pm
He hasn’t even gotten past the great Marquez and they are already planning all these other fights for Pac. Beat Marquez decisively and then look ahead to other fights!!Posted October 11, 2012 8:47 pm
