Arum: I Don't Give Victor Ortiz Much of a Chance to Win

By Robert Morales

Earlier this week, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum was asked to handicap next Saturday's big welterweight fight between Victor Ortiz and Floyd Mayweather Jr. As he always does, he gave an opinion that suits his needs - in this case, millions upon millions of dollars promoting a fight between his company superstar, Manny Pacquiao, and Mayweather being the opponent in other corner.

"I think Ortiz is a good, young fighter," Arum said. "But he's really inexperienced and in fighting Floyd he's fighting a guy who really knows boxing. So I don't give Ortiz much of a chance to beat Mayweather."

Arum probably is right. But he will be the first one to bellow "Oh, no" if Ortiz wins because he wants Pacquiao-Mayweather.

"They have to come to the table after November," Arum said of Mayweather and his team. "If they come to the table, that's our first choice. But we're not going to chase them."
