Koncz: Mayweather Not Serious, Trying To Get Attention

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

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.…

[QUOTE=PacTard;11368188]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…
