Arum Thinks Mayweather's Sanity is Possibly Slipping

By Edward Chaykovsky

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, believes his former client Floyd Mayweather Jr. is starting to mentally lose it. Arum, speaking to Martin Rogers of Yahoo Sports, questions some of Mayweather's recent verbal rants and his behavior outside of the ring. Over the last two years, Mayweather has been involved in a number of lawsuits stemming from assault allegations. Some of those cases are still ongoing, including one case involving the mother of his children.

“He was never the easiest person to deal with, but he was a different person really to what I see now,” Arum said. “All you have to go on is what you see and hear about him and the way he goes about his life. But it is very strange. It is completely bizarre some of these things that are going on. The things coming out of his mouth and the actions you hear about just don’t make sense. You have to just wonder where it is all coming from.

“You act a certain way [and] you are going to be judged upon it. If you act like you are insane, that is what people are going to think. If you act responsibly and professionally, then people will treat you that way. I guess when you are dealing with Mayweather, you have to stop asking rational questions because maybe we are not dealing with a rational guy anymore. You just have to take it as it is.”

Arum is even shocked at Mayweather's recent attacks on Oscar De Le Hoya, the president of Golden Boy Promotions. Mayweather's last five pay-per-view have been co-promoted by De La Hoya's company, and that includes this Saturday's fight against Victor Ortiz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“A boxer’s reputation is his own and you have to nurture it. He is destroying it. What about the recent attack on Oscar? Why is he attacking De La Hoya? He is not fighting him – he is his own promoter. What purpose does it serve?"
