Arum: Mayweather Very Concerned With Pacquiao's Style

By Edward Chaykovsky

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is convinced that Floyd Mayweather Jr would refuse to fight Manny Pacquiao regardless of the financial terms. Even if Pacquiao offered to fight for free, Arum would expect another refusal. Negotiations to make the Mayweather-Pacquiao super-fight have fallen through a number of times in the last few years. Arum believes the southpaw style and the speed of Pacquiao - create great concern for Mayweather.

"He doesn't want to fight a southpaw. Why? Because his entire defensive style is geared for right-handed fighter. To compound that, if the southpaw is really fast, and moves, that would give Mayweather and his style a lot of trouble. It would really jeopardize Mayweather's undefeated record. That's why the fight is not happening," Arum said.

"Its' almost like before the second World War. Hitler wanted this and Hitler wanted that, but it was never enough. Hitler's dream was to go to war and conquer Europe if not the whole world. Mayweather's dream is to stay undefeated. So whatever you give him [he would say no]. Even if Manny agreed to fight for nothing, it wouldn't be enough. Don't you understand that?"

The only argument that counts is that on 2 occasions Bob Arum declined to put Manny in the ring with Floyd. 1. Broke off negotiations over drug testing to fight Joshua Clottey 2. The in jail/out of jail debacle that proved Bob Arums true belief about putting Manny in the ring with Floyd...

[QUOTE=Kuyukut][/QUOTE] Still the dumbest argument Floyd haters try to use. "I wont use context when Floyd is talking about something. He said he is a scared coward, thats all i heard, i didnt hear anything else." I know some of you people can use logic and common sense (or maybe not).

Seems about right.. A few months from his next fight so the Floyd talks begin. Guess the hype with Bradley ain't getting that much buzz. Shame, cause Bradley talks a good talk and gets results

[QUOTE=The Big Dunn]Right, Bob. I'm sure if your matchmakers felt Manny could beat floyd you would have made this match already.[/QUOTE] Cant make a match against an opponent whohas a million excuses like floyd has.

Right, Bob. I'm sure if your matchmakers felt Manny could beat floyd you would have made this match already.
