By Lem Satterfield

On two occasions, negotiations for a megabout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather failed over the issue of Olympic style drug testing, this, with Top Rank Promotions acting on behalf of Pacquiao, and Golden Boy Promotions on behalf of Mayweather.

But during Thursday's national conference call promoting a March 12 clash between WBA junior middleweight king Miguel Cotto and ex-champion Ricardo Mayorga, Top Rank Promotions CEO, Bob Arum, said that he could make a Mayweather-Pacquiao bout in no time if long time rival, Don King, were handling Mayweather.

"If Don had Mayweather, and I, of course, have Manny Pacquiao, I didn't say that the fight would be made in a day, it would be made in one hour. Don and I would cut to the essentials, we would work out those few details, and we would make the fight," said Arum, who promotes Cotto while King promote Mayorga.

"Now with the experience that I had with the company [Golden Boy Promotions] that Mayweahter had been dealing with, the essentials were the last item," said Arum. "They was all of this nonsense that made for a lot of acrimony. Mayweather would do well to go with Don, and I would work with him. It would be one of the great, great promotions ever, if not, the greatest."

[QUOTE=Lorily]TBH, I see the fight going simular to how the Pac/ODLH fight went, in the sense of Shane either not coming out inbetween rounds or with Brother Naazim throwing in the towel. Shane just doesn't have the stamina to keep up with Pac for 12 rounds, all the while taking 3, 4, 5 punch c...

[quote=LeadUppercut]Pac/Margarito for a vacant JMW title left me cold, I did not buy that fight. I didn't want Arum or cheato to benefit, nor Manny for that rubbish. But Shane/Pac isn't as bad as some are saying, mind you, it certainly isn't as good as some are saying either. It is not a top ...

[QUOTE=Chuckguy]what makes you all think that he wont get to manny? Floyd is the best defensive fighter in the game and SSM was able to get him. It was only for those few seconds but he got him. Manny is no where near as defesive as Floyd. I guess what Im trying to say is that Manny is very hit...
