By Vitali Shaposhnikov: According to various sources, Richard Schaefer has officially joined that “Bob Arum is a liar” bandwagon.

After calling Arum a liar multiple times, Schaefer also stated that Arum has been lying about the ongoing Mayweather Jr. vs. Pacquiao talks.
So many stores are out there, with so many voices telling those stories, yet no solid proof of either. Are the talks real, or is Arum simply trying to lead Pacquaio and boxing fans on? I have no idea.
Sure there are too many people out there enraged at Arum and his ways, but so far, I have no real proven reason to believe Schaefer more than I would Arum. Yes, I do believe that Arum is the main roadblock to the proposed fight, but I don’t think that he is purposefully delaying it with all his might.
If this was all true, I would hope that Pacquiao would catch on and try to figure out what was truly going on, unless he himself is siding with Arum on his actions.
Whether it’s Arum, Schaefer, Pacquiao or Mayweather Jr., we will never find out and it almost doesn’t matter. There is some internal, likely money related disagreements, that I am confident will soon be settled and agreed upon. Nobody lets $100 million dollars go that easy.
