Arum Rips Mayweather's Claims Over Negotiations

By Mark Vester

Promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank has ripped into the recent claims that were made by Floyd Mayweather Jr. During an interview with fighthype.com, Mayweather claimed that "nobody" had reached out with respect to a fight with Manny Pacquiao. Last year, Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank were publically disputing whether or not any actual negotiations were taking place for a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. Arum had claimed that Ross Greenburg, president of HBO Sports, was the middleman between Top Rank and Mayweather's manager Al Haymon. Richard Schaefer, CEO for Golden Boy, told BoxingScene.com in several interviews that "no negotiations" had ever taken place.

Greenburg would eventually issue a public statement which backed Arum's side of the story. During an interview with USA Today, Arum lashed out at Mayweather's recent claims about the negotiations. He also said the two sides had reached an understanding on the contract clause which called for random Olympic style drug testing.

"We not only reached out, we had a full negotiation with Ross Greenburg being the intermediary with Al Haymon back before the Margarito fight. And that came to nothing. And I assume Haymon advised Floyd that we were negotiating the fight through Greenburg. But (saying) we didn't reach out to Haymon was total nonsense," Arum told the paper.

"As far as Floyd is concerned, we've attempted to reach him without any success. He knows where we are. And none of his people have ever called us. The idea that we haven't reached out is absurd. … We've gotten no calls from him. …

"Why the hell should we reach out to Al Haymon when they have constantly said that they're not interested in fighting? Let them call us. … I'm not going to reach out to them like I'm chasing them. But if they said to a responsible newspaper or somebody responsible, 'We want to fight Manny Pacquiao,' I would make the call."
