Pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao’s adviser, Michael Koncz, believes Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s reported desire to fight Pacquiao on May 5 is just another - “gimmick by Mayweather to try and steal the thunder from Manny’s upcoming fight (against Juan Manuel Marquez) just like he did one day after the press conference to announce the Pacquiao-Shane Mosley fight.”

ESPN reported that that Mayweather had informed Leonard Ellerbe and another adviser, Al Haymon, of his decision to fight in May. Ellerbe reportedly said - "we're looking to make the biggest fight possible and everyone knows what that fight is, the little fella. Floyd made it very clear to us, what he wanted to do. He told us he is looking to make the biggest fight that is out there and to make it in May."

In an overseas telephone conversation with BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard, Koncz said “how can he set the date, how can he set the venue without consulting with your opponent?”

Koncz insisted that the Mayweather camp “has not spoken to anybody that has the authority to negotiate. They have not spoken to Bob Arum and they have not spoken to me.”

The adviser said Pacquiao took the day off on Wednesday,only the second day off during this particular training camp "spent the whole day up in his room doing tickets and stuff and we’ve been working on endorsements which are not mickey mouse $100,000 but multi-million dollar deals.”

I think it's excellent timing by team Mayweather. By making this announcement now, you get out in front of the whatever performance Manny has against Marquez. No matter how Manny performs against Marquez, the plans seems to be in motion. This removes the opportunity for anyone to say Floyd is usi...

[QUOTE=Big Dunn]Becasue you asked a question and I answered it. You responded to my post about Bob believing manny would beat ODH and took the fight because of it. It seems you thought somehow I was trying to diss manny or take credit away from him.[/QUOTE] He took the fight because he had ...

Pacquiao's camp has been Saying Floyd is afraid & refusing to fight Pacquiao so now that Floyd has named the time & place, why are the criticizing instead of celebrating the good news that Floyd has changed his mind & in fact willing to fight?

[QUOTE=PacTard]Nice spin. You really didn't say much of anything here. I don't believe that he is on steroids because there is no proof that he is on steroids. None. Not even a little bit. Refusing to comply with a drug test request from someone that is in no position to demand a test is not any ...
