Arum: Mayweather at Distinct Disadvantage With Pacquiao

By CARLOS ARIAS

INGLEWOOD, CALIF. --- Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum paid close attention to Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s majority decision victory over Marcos Maidana on May 3 and saw some things that intrigued him.

Arum and Mayweather have been feuding for years, which is why a superfight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao has been impossible to make.

"It showed me why Mayweather is so reluctant to fight Pacquiao," Arum said defore Thursday's Marquez-Alvarado news conference. "A guy with a lot of guts who swarms all over, particularly fast and left-handed. Mayweather is at a distinct disadvantage."
