Problem is, Arum turned this whole thing into who"s scared of who long time ago and its coming back to bit him in the butt now. Instead of legitimately trying to make the fight over the last couple years. He and the rest of Team Pacquaio has invested a lot more energy into convincing the world that Mayweather is scared of Pac. Now, its become more about who wins the PR war moreso who can win a boxing match. And in the PR arena, Pac's credibility as the Mayweather killer took a huge hit in his struggles with JMM. It made those who thought he was Mayweather's worst nightmare step back and take a legitimate look at this fight. And they realize what actual fight people have known all along. And that is Pac is up against it matched with Money. Arum and crew know it too. Thus, the stalling and continued attempts to fool the public. Problem is, very few are buying it now. He basically used Mayweather to build Pac into a megastar. Now, its time to pay the piper. Because truth is, much of ******* Nation is a lot more Mayweather haters than Pac fanatics. And if Pac loses the Mayweather haters, he's gonna be back to selling 400K-500K PPVs.
I respect your opinion, but these excuses are just that -- excuses. There is absolutely nothing logical about it. They are simply nonsensical justifications that Arum has thrown out there because the boxing media finally stopped accepting everything he says as if it was gospel and started challenging the BS he has been feeding everyone about this fight for the last three years.

If Arum built this stadium that could hold 40,000 people, it would cost him $7 million and the most he could make off ticket sales would be $45 million. Subtract $7 million from that and you have a profit of $38 million. Ticket sales at the MGM Grand would be about $20 million. The site fee that the MGM Grand would pay (which Arum would not collect at the newly built stadium) would be around $25 million. Total profit: $45 million. Also, if Arum wanted a bigger stadium, he could rent out the Las Vegas Speedway, which holds 120,000 or the UNLV stadium, which holds a lot more than 40,000.

This fight has been promoted daily on the internet and the boxing community for the last three years and has received so much publicity in the last two months that the Amish, who don't watch television, don't read newspapers, don't listen to radio and don't interact with others outside of their communithy unless necessary, can tell you who Mayweather and Pac are. If the fight was scheduled for this weekend with no promotion, the fight would still break the PPV sales record and all the tickets would be sold out within half an hour of going on sale.

As far as the guarantee is concerned, the promother who collects all the money from the fight guarantees the purses. That is Arum. However, Arum is trying to convince the gullible and the Pac worshippers that he should collect all of the $150 million that Mayweather and Pac will generate with their hard work, but he should only pay Pac's portion of the purse and a promoter who will not collect a dime of the revenue from the fight should pay Mayweather $50 million. If Arum is willing to co promote the event with Golden Boy and give them 50 percent of the proceeds, GBP will pay Mayweather his guarantee.

In retrospect, Arum's excuses make absolutely no sense.

I hope *******s also give Floyd credit for suggesting that if he fights Cotto, he would fight him at a weight which would not effectively drain him.

Wait... *******s? Giving Floyd credit? He could beat both Klitschkos with his hands tied and they still wouldn't... What's amazing is that Pacquiao keeps fighting guys from the "Bum of the Month" club (in fact, Marquez's competitiveness was a surprise, since he was older and had to climb in weight) and they give him all the credit...

Mayweather should set up a public conference or some sort of series of televised statements saying this sorta thing...really laying into Team Pacquiao and making it clear how much he wants the fight.

He needs to continue doing what he's doing on as large a scale as possible...really up the ante on these guys and force them to fight. Really change public opinion of Pacquiao and his people.

DUDE!!!!! Do you realize Pac came up 5 pounds and Cotto went down 2 but basically 1 because he used to come in a 146. But Mayweather made Marquez come up 9 pounds and he went down 3 pounds but wait... He came in 2 pounds heavier at 146 so he made Marquez move up 11 pounds.... Should we give him credit for that??? How comfortable did Mayweather want Marquez fighting at 146 when he had only had one fight above 130 at the time and that was at 135???? Please tell me you just a Pac Hater and didn't think or check facts before you posted.... Mayweather is a walking BS machine and always contradicts himself... Thanks for the LAUGH!!!!

Send the contract to Koncz and Pac will sign as long as you guarantee your own purse. Don't just talk on twitter because you're embarrassing yourself.
