Floyd Mayweather, Bob Arum Reunite at The Super Bowl

Sunday's Super Bowl 45, which took place at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, created an unlikely reunion between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum. Both Mayweather and Arum were guests of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Mayweather, who turned pro with Top Rank in 1996, broke away from Arum's company in 2006. Over the years, there has been a lot of tension between Mayweather and Top Rank, but on Sunday there was nothing but pleasantries being exchanged.

According to Arum, there was no discussion about any boxing-related topics, and that includes a potential mega-fight between Mayweather and Arum's star fighter - Manny Pacquiao. The two had not spent time together in that kind of setting "in a long, long time," said Arum.

"[Top Rank President] Todd [duBoef] and I sat next to Floyd and his girl and we watched the game together in Jerry Jones' box. We talked about the game and had a very nice afternoon. It was very cordial and all we talked about was football and general stuff, but nothing to do with boxing. He was there for a good time, to watch the game, and that's what we were [there to do]. It was an unbelievable experience in that box. President Bush and his wife were there with us...all of the movie stars...Harrison Ford, Demi Moore, Michael Douglas, Katherine Zeta Jones, Jamie Foxx... just one after another. Everybody was having a great time so we didn't talk about boxing. Jerry spent some time with Floyd. It was very, very nice," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

[B][/B] I mentioned this many times in my other commentaries that Floyd don't want to hear anything anymore about Pacquiao and THE FIGHT. I noticed that he stammers and get tense, and mumble groping for answers to change the subject.…
