De La Hoya: Mayweather Hopes To Get Pacquiao in 2012

Golden Boy boss Oscar De La Hoya was revealed that WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is aiming to arrange three bouts in 2012 as he looks to keep busy into his 35th year.

De La Hoya, who was attending a recent charity night organized by friend and Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am, told the waiting press of Mayweather’s intentions and also called on WBO champion Manny Pacquiao to accept a super-fight with the American.

“We have just finalized Floyd Mayweather v Miguel Cotto for May 5th so we are excited about that,” said De La Hoya. “He (Mayweather) will be fighting, I believe three times this year so he is excited and I am happy to be working with him. We are just trying to make the big fights happen. Hopefully we can nail down the Pacquiao fight real soon. Pacquiao just has to agree to fight because Mayweather wants to fight him.”

Pacquiao, 33, has recently signed on to face stablemate Timothy Bradley and his promoter, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, has made it clear that he sees no reason why the two fighters can’t agree to meet in November.

Mayweather has a 90-day prison sentence to squeeze into what will be a crammed year for the five-weight world champion. In connection to a plea agreement for a domestic abuse charge, Mayweather will start his sentence on June 1 in Las Vegas, which makes it nearly impossible to squeeze in three fights - based on the scheduling and the amount of time which is necessary to properly promote each pay-per-view.

F U Oscar and Fraud Mayrunner!! You want to rip us off. We all know the reason why you don't let Mayrunner fight Pacman is because once he does, he will get beaten and you will not be able to bring big money that the foolish, circus loving fans pay to watch your staged fights. So, from the bott...

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... Sounds Good Oscar; Floyd Isn't Fighting Pacquiao!

Floyd has had three years. Floyd has opted for other hand picked opponents 4 times (Marquez, Mosley, Ortiz & now Cotto). Floyd wants the paycheck, he doesn't want the risk. Oscar is trying to make a paycheck since Golden Boy Promotions is taking a financial beating, and Floyd needs to grow a set.

[QUOTE=pacfan]why would you even give a crap what pacman does with his money? are you his mother? each takes their share of the split and let them do whatever they want with it. who cares? this is actually very simple, if pbf is really sincere in making this fight happen: the winner takes t...

[QUOTE=Deevel916]Easier said that done! Calling someone like Pac out who generates just as much $ as you do, then offering a flat fee for what's expected to be the biggest grossing fight in history shows that you really arent serious about making it happen.[/QUOTE]Stop lying to boxing fans, and ...
