Mayweather ensures Pacquiao negotiations descend into farce
Chris Mannix
Posted: Tuesday July 27, 2010 4:29PM ; Updated: Tuesday July 27, 2010 9:21PM




Floyd Mayweather, a staple on most pound-for-pound lists, has fought just twice since coming out of semi-retirement last year.

Floyd Mayweather is a bully, one neatly wrapped in a cut 5-foot-8, 147-pound package. Like most bullies, Mayweather is intimidating. He sends promoters, managers and networks cowering in the corner with the mere threat of withholding his services. He holds the boxing world hostage by saying he will take his gloves and go home unless the fight isn't when he wants, where he wants and at what weight he wants. He perpetuates a lie -- like the one about his advisor, Al Haymon, not being involved in negotiations with Manny Pacquiao -- because he is confident in the fact that no one in the industry will stand up to him.

Well, someone finally did. Late Monday night, HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg -- the man in the middle of this mess -- issued a statement. In the statement, Greenburg confirmed what everyone in the world already knew. Yes, there had been negotiations. No, there will not be a fight between the two biggest names in the sport this year.

"Fights like Mayweather vs. Pacquiao are significant because of these fighters' ability to connect with sports fans around the world," said Greenburg. "It's unfortunate that it won't happen in 2010. I had been negotiating with a representative from each side since May 2, carefully trying to put the fight together. Hopefully, someday this fight will happen. Sports fans deserve it."

Mayweather's team issued a series of swift denials. But it is preposterous to suggest that Haymon, Mayweather's chief negotiator and the man Mayweather praises for his work at every ... single ... press conference would be involved in any kind of talks for a Mayweather fight without Mayweather's express approval. Greenburg has no reason to lie. Haymon has a large stable of clients that include Andre Berto, Paul Williams and Chris Arreola. But Mayweather is Haymon's golden goose. He brings home the biggest paycheck. And to believe Haymon pretended to speak on Mayweather's behalf for two months -- two months -- strains credulity to Avatar-like levels.

It didn't happen. Mayweather knew exactly what Haymon was doing, just like Leonard Ellerbe and Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer did. Ellerbe is Mayweather's mouthpiece. He's a good man, one well-liked in the industry. But as sycophants come, he may be the definition. He parrots everything Floyd says -- "All roads lead to Floyd Mayweather" -- to the point where it almost doesn't matter who says it. The words are the same; the voices are just different.

Schaefer's stance is even more baffling. Schaefer, too, is well-respected in the industry and has advanced boxing as much as anyone with his innovative marketing strategies. But by backing Mayweather and denying any negotiations took place, he not only is calling his boss Oscar De La Hoya a liar -- De La Hoya, remember, went on Univision last month and said the Mayweather-Pacquiao negotiations were "very close" to being completed -- but he's calling every journalist he has spoken to on the subject a liar, too.

Sure, Schaefer has offered a firm "no comment" when asked about negotiations, but his words have been laced with hints that there was indeed something to comment on. Earlier this month, after Arum told SI.com that a deal had been struck, I called Schaefer looking for confirmation. Again, he said he had no comment. But he later announced, somewhat triumphantly, that I should tell Arum that he had "won the shut-up contest."

Shut up about what, exactly? Right.

The truth is Schaefer and Golden Boy have attached themselves to Mayweather because his affiliation with the company is one of the few assets keeping it viable. Click on the fighters page on Golden Boy's website and check out the four faces highlighted at the top. De La Hoya is gone, Bernard Hopkins should be and Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez are one bad loss away from potentially following them out the door.

They have a heavyweight champion (David Haye) who won't fight anybody. They have a former middleweight champion (Winky Wright) who won't either. There is talent at junior welterweight (Marcos Maidana, Victor Ortiz, Amir Khan) but not enough to carry the company. No, Golden Boy needs Mayweather and to cross him would burn a very lucrative bridge. And they are not going to do it.

Meanwhile, Mayweather sits back, content to amuse himself by working Ellerbe and Schaefer like puppets. He's comforted by the $65 million he earned in his past two fights, the kind of cash that reinforces the fantasy that he's the G.O.A.T ... when the reality is that he has yet to even prove he is the greatest of this time. He had a chance to cement that legacy this year by following up a win over Mosley with another over Pacquiao.

He passed.

But like it was with LeBron James, it wasn't so much the decision as how the decision was delivered. Coldly, and littered with a whole lot of lies.

It's Official: Mayweather's Scared!
by Stephen D. Riley
Originally published July 21, 2010


Cornered by The Associated Press at a celebrity basketball game, Floyd Mayweather couldn't escape. After letting a Friday deadline pass with no response, his much-hyped potential bout with Manny Pacquiao was on the ropes and ready to collapse. The media wanted answers, the fans wanted answers and every bookie, broker and bettor in Vegas wanted answers. So what did Mayweather counter with when hit by this whole super-bout question? A lackadaisical whimper punch of: "I'm not really thinking about boxing right now. I'm just relaxing. I fought about 60 days ago, so I'm just enjoying myself, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying my vacation."

Uh... really Floyd? Are you serious? These are the words tip-toeing from the mouth of the self-proclaimed “best fighter ever”? The guy just a year removed from a year's worth of retirement talking about relaxing and vacation? The HBO quoted “prize-fighter” who always goes for the big payday?

Floyd fans can try their best to explain this away, but it won't be easy. How do you nickname yourself "Money" Mayweather but treat the biggest payday of your career like it's a part-time job at Checkers?

He could've given a number of reasons, from saying he's waiting on the outcome of his trainer's upcoming court case to his Shih Tzu just died and he's in mourning right now (no report on whether or not Mayweather owns a Shih Tzu is available at this time). Did he have to? No. Should he have, for his fans' sake at least? Most definitely.

When you run through the world proclaiming that you're the best ever in your profession and everyone should respect your greatness, you owe it to not only yourself but enthusiasts everywhere to stand by those principles. You think LeBron James will command the same respect he used to? Heck, even Lil Wayne, the self-proclaimed “best rapper alive," doesn't generate the same publicity he used to. And it's funny because now that I think about it, he doesn't even refer to himself as the best anymore and how could he after a series of recent head-scratchers?

See, when you keep telling people over and over again that you're the best, it's absolutely mandatory you walk the walk until you hang up your shoes. Mayweather, however, still has his shoes laced up but he's walking in the opposite direction of the biggest race he can run in right now. The best should want to beat the best or at least say they lost to the best.

You don't get this kind of obstacle course in the NFL, NBA, NHL or MLB. Typically, the best two teams (not the most talented) end up meeting each other down the road somewhere. Only in college football and boxing do you get sideswiped with politics that steers the fans clear of what they want.

First, Mayweather was on his campaign to "clean up the sport of boxing" by refusing to fight Pacquiao until the latter underwent strict drug testing procedures. Now, Mayweather seemingly could care less about a fight? Crazy.

First King James slips to South Beach, now this.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert couldn't write a letter harsher than what Mayweather's fans should be penning right now.
