Arum gives Floyd 1st crack at Manny
 

 

[S]MANILA, Philippines - Bob Arum is giving Floyd Mayweather Jr. a couple of weeks, and it could be just right before Christmas, to announce his availability to f!ght Manny Pacquiao next year.

Otherwise, the legendary promoter will start looking at someone else.

Shane Mosley could be that someone else, after the 39-year-old welterweight champion, who knocked out Antonio Margarito in January last year, said he’s ready.

Then there’s Juan Manuel Marquez itching for a third f!ght with Pacquiao.

Arum was asked who’s next for Pacquiao, who must be in the middle of a concert in San Francisco as of presstime, four days after his crushing win over Margarito.

He is scheduled to arrive in Manila Saturday morning, and once again face a hero’s welcome.

“Well, obviously we, like everyone in boxing, would like to see him f!ght Floyd Mayweather next. We’ll see if we can make that happen. That’s our first priority,” he said.

“That’s if Floyd Mayweather is willing to take the f!ght.”

Arum said the f!ght with Mayweather will depend on a lot of things, not just the where and when, the purse split or the blood-testing procedure.

The Mayweathers, the boxer and his uncle-trainer, are facing various charges and may be facing court trials in the coming weeks or months.

Arum said they need to make sure that the f!ght, from the negotiations leading up to the preparations, will not be “blindsided by any trial.”

Arum, now smiling at the possibility of 1.5 million pay-per-view buys for last week’s Pacquiao-Margarito, said he will work on the Mayweather thing the next couple of weeks.

He said a month ago that Pacquiao can f!ght in May, but it can be pushed to June or July depending on the opponent.

“There’s no one in first place right now after Floyd. We have a birthday party Dec. 17 in the Philippines for Manny. If Mayweather hasn’t indicated his availability by then, Shane Mosley is a real possibility,” he told the Los Angeles Times.

Lance Pugmire of the Times wrote that Mosley has already reached out to Arum,

“I’m conducting business myself,” said the pride of Pomona, who should agree to f!ght Pacquiao regardless of what’s on the table or with no blood-testing at all.

“If I have to wait for these others, I’m not going to get the f!ght I want,” added Mosley, referring to his representatives from Golden Boy Promotions, still locked up in a courtroom battle with Top Rank.

Mosley said he can give Pacquiao, and the fans, a good f!ght, a f!ght even better than the Margarito f!ght.

“I punch harder and faster than Margarito, I’d land more body shots.... It’d be a good, explosive matchup,” he said.

But Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, had said that Mosley “needs to retire.”

The Filipino champion’s strength and conditioning coach, Alex Ariza, isn’t too hot either for that f!ght.

“Mosley? He’ll be tired after 15 minutes so what’s the point of that f!ght? Manny knocks him out and probably, Manny won’t even train for that f!ght,” said Ariza after the Margarito f!ght.

“That guy is a quitter. He quit against Mayweather in three rounds. What do you think he’s gonna do when Manny starts letting loose his hands five or 15 seconds after the bell rings?”

Well, at least there’s a sure f!ght waiting for Pacquiao, if Mayweather can’t.

Man, I like Marquez. He's a good dude with alot of heart, but a third f!ght? Cmon, just give it up, it's over. Mosley doesn't stand a chance. He should just shut the hell up and retire already. Boxing's gonna be boring now for Manny unless Poosie Boy Floyd decides to grab his balls and step up to him. Make it happen, Floyd you f**got.

This.

They tried giving Floyd a deadline before and you see how that turned out. Besides...


"The Mayweathers, the boxer and his uncle-trainer, are facing various charges and may be facing court trials in the coming weeks or months."

...they know damn well he can't make a decision on a f!ght right now.

It won't happen. Too many legal problems going on and Manny won't agree to the testing.

I blame Floyd for holding up the f!ght, but Pac and his team are just as stubborn. Other than Blood testing Floyd has no demands. Weight, Money, gloves, date, ring size, penalty money (If floyd comes over weight) Floyd give in on all of those.
