Don King Eyes Mayweather-Pacquiao, Mayorga-Chavez

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Legendary boxing promoter Don King made the long trip to Mexico to attend a World Boxing Council celebration with the WBC's president Jose Sulaiman. King confirmed a recent report on BoxingScene.com, that he plans to pursue a fight between Ricardo Mayorga and WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

King, who promoted Julio's father, will attempt to arrange this fight, which Mayorga wants at a catch-weight of 165-pounds. The match is unlikely, with Chavez possibly facing Andy Lee on June 2, and then being ordered to make a mandatory defense against Sergio Martinez.

"Absolutely, yes this fight can happen [between Chavez and Mayorga]. I would like for it to happen in June or July. I will speak with the father of Julio Cesar and José Sulaimán. I've known Julio Cesar since he was a child. I would like to be involved in the promotion of some of his fights," King said.

Another fight on King's mind, is a welterweight unification between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. King is close friends with Mayweather and has a good business relationship with Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank.

"I'm the only one who can make the anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. With the money, there is no problem. Other [promoters] offer trash to Mayweather and Pacquiao, while I'll offer a lot of money," King said.

King has become delusional in his old age. Mayweather might be his friend, but he is smart enough not to do business with King.

[QUOTE=bigboy313;11787486]For those who believe Floyd is afraid of Pacquiao you (all) need your heads examine. Better yet get a brain replacement. Take the character (Money, Pretty-boy) out and look at Floyd’s body of work. Floyd is not a fighter -…
