list of excuses:
"The question with a Mayweather f!ght is at what weight? That's the big question. At 140, I don't think there's any problem making that f!ght. If Floyd wants to come in at a higher weight, I don't know. A catch-weight is a possibility also. But none of that has been discussed and I won't let anyone discuss it until after this f!ght but he could go fu*k himself. Tell him that! fu*k Mayweather. Pacquiao's the big attraction. He has to come to us if he wants it. If he doesn't come to us, there's dozens of other guys we can f!ght."
"You can tell Floyd Mayweather that Bob Arum said he's delusional. Floyd is not the attraction. Manny is the attraction. Floyd's got no idea what he's talking about. Even a 50/50 split with Floyd Mayweather is nonsense."
"The f!ght that should be made is Mayweather and Shane Mosley, but Mayweather won't take that f!ght. He won't take any f!ght where there is any possibility where he might lose. Money is secondary with him. He will not take a chance like a normal f!ghter. He cares more about his legacy and being able to retire undefeated so he could say that he never lost a f!ght."
"Mayweather pressed for blood testing even up to the weigh-in. He knew that Manny gets freaked out when his blood gets taken, and feels that it weakens him. This is just harassment and, to me, just signaled that he didn't want the f!ght"
"I think the boxing fans are going to be disappointed, but they have to realize, they have to cut Floyd Mayweather some slack. I mean, we know that his uncle is facing some difficulties in the courts in Nevada and I can see his reluctance to commit to a big f!ght with Manny Pacquiao without having the services of his uncle, and if the boxing fans begrudge that, that's really sad. I believe that people should be understanding. I mean, Floyd Mayweather is not saying that he'll never f!ght Manny Pacquiao and Manny Pacquiao is not saying that if Floyd's not available in November, Pacquiao's not going to f!ght him. There's always next year."
"Listen, we're not going to consider anything until after the Marquez f!ght. The way they are going about it seems like a bizarre way to go about it. If you want to put it together, you meet, you talk. You don't just come out and say, 'The f!ght is May 5 at the MGM.' What kind of negotiation is that? So I don't take what they said seriously."
"How can you make a deal without knowing the criminal situation?"
"Floyd is making a sick joke, trying to steal Pac's spotlight right now, we can't wait for Floyd, Bradley could be next."
"May 5 is out for us, it can't happen, because we want to explore the idea of getting a stadium up on the streets of Las Vegas that can seat 40,000."
"I want to make sure Manny's cuts are healed. What if they fought and Manny started bleeding on the first punch?"
