Mayweather: In My Life, I'll Never Do Business With Arum!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) has made it clear that a super-fight with Manny Pacquiao will never happen as long as the Filipino star is promoted by Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum. Mayweather's comments are quite different from the statements Arum presented in a recent interview, where the veteran promoter said that he was very friendly with Floyd and there was no animosity between them. Judging by Mayweather's comments, there is still a lot of animosity.

Mayweather spent the better part of his career with Top Rank, but broke away to become a free agent in 2006. It was a very bitter breakup. The boxer has worked with Arum's main competitor, Golden Boy Promotions, since 2007.

"We all know the Pacquiao fight, at this particular time, will never happen, and the reason why the fight won't happen is because I will never do business with Bob Arum again in life, and Pacquiao is Bob Arum's fighter. Bob Arum gives Pacquiao a date, whereas Floyd Mayweather gives Floyd Mayweather his own date. I will be fighting again in May and I will be fighting again in September. I'm gonna give you two reasons the Pacquiao fight is not going to happen. Like I said before, I will never do business with Bob Arum in life, but I don't wish him nothing bad," Mayweather told Fighthype.com.

[QUOTE=MindBat;14068281]After all the excuses Team Pac made, Floyd had realized Manny cannot make his own decisions unless they are approved by his promoter who has derailed negotiations with Pac's blessings from the beginning. Much easier said than done. A lot…
