Arum, 50 Cent Have Spoken Since Mayweather's Release

By Robert Morales

Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, told BoxingScene.com that he has spoken to 50 Cent since Floyd Mayweather Jr. was released from jail earlier this month. The rapper apparently is hopeful of becoming the next big-time promoter, and Arum has said he believes he could make a fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao if Mayweather lets 50 Cent promote his side rather than Golden Boy Promotions, which has helped Mayweather promote has past six fights.

"We did (speak) with Curtis Jackson, 50 cent, but I assume they're looking at a fight next year, which we want to do," Arum told BoxingScene.com. "It shouldn't be hard to make and so forth. Just get it done."

A few months ago, 50 Cent formed his own promotional company, TMT Promotions, and signed several fighters - including Yuriorkis Gamboa, Celestino Caballero, Andre Dirrell and Billy Dib.

The exact details of Pacquiao's next fight, mainly the opponent and the date, is still up in the air. With November 10th creeping closer and closer, it's becoming likely that Pacquiao will fight in the month of December. The MGM Grand in Las Vegas is the target venue, and Juan Manuel Marquez, Timothy Bradley and Miguel Cotto are the three potential opponents being considered.

Floyd's fault. The waiting game king. Manny's bored fighting everyone else. Floyd will wait for the right time as always.

Would have been a cracking fight 2 years ago but I think Pac has lost his hunger for the game now, would still be a decent fight but not what it could have been
