According to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is attempting to close a deal to face Erik Morales, the WBC champion 140-pounds, on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. A few days ago, Mayweather's adviser, Leonard Ellerbe, said Mayweather was planning to return on May 5th of next year, and they already had the MGM Grand on hold. Ellerbe said Mayweather was looking to fight the "little fella" but Arum says the little fella is not WBO champion Manny Pacquiao, but Erik Morales of Mexico.

“You know who the little fellow that they already approached? It’s Erik Morales,” Arum told the Manila Bulletin. “And Erik will confirm it – absolutely. Erik has been approached to make the fight. He’ll take it for the money. I’m sure he’ll take it for the money. Why wouldn’t he?"

Arum's information may not be as crazy as everyone believes, because several days ago in the Mexican press - Golden Boy Promotions head matchmaker Eric Gomez was directly quoted as stating that his company was trying to make a fight between Morales and Mayweather, and both sides were very interested.

Gomez told Mexican reporters on October 29th - "We are in talks with Floyd Mayweather to match him with Morales. The problem is, it's very hard get Floyd because he says one thing today and another thing tomorrow."

Arum feels they used Pacquiao's name to secure the May date with the MGM.

“I don’t know who’s gonna buy it (Mayweather vs Morales). But that’s the whole nonsense is all about,” said Arum. “He (Mayweather) was on television last night. They say, ‘Why don’t you fight Pacquiao?’ And he says, ‘Take the test, take the test.’ What the f-k is he talking about? Everybody knows that’s not an issue anymore. He will not fight Manny Pacquiao. And who cares. There are some better guys out there for Manny to fight.

“They bull----ed the MGM to get the date, to get May 5. So they cut us out of getting May 5. But we don’t need May 5 because we’re not fighting a Spanish guy next. But they want May 5 because they’re fighting Morales.”

You Know, I really think that this site should stop with the one sided stories from Arum. Unless of course he is part owner of this website. It is quite frustrating!

[QUOTE=spoonwars]I didn't say you have to be part of the hate. I said you could be a fan otherwise. It doesn't bother me either way until someone gets hurt (unlike the flomos here lol). It's totally fine with your opinion, but good and evil will always be part of the same entity. At some point, y...

[QUOTE=eddoes]Youre a blind hater. Actual evidence and common sense does not work with you. Good job telling me im crying when youre the one with no explanation as to why Arum is contradicting himself. Do you think hating is going to make you feel any better about yourself? Im beginning to believ...
