Don King Confident He'd Make Mayweather-Pacquiao

By Miguel Rivera

Hall of Fame promoter Don King is confident - if he was in charge of the negotiations - that Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao would have been finalized. According to King, there was some big mistakes made during the ongoing discussions that he easily could have settled.

King says he would have spoken to both fighters a long time ago, and offered up $100 million to each man, which he feels would have persuaded both fighters to sign contracts.

Promoters have tried to make Mayweather-Pacquiao for the last five or six years. The current discussions are even more complicated, because Mayweather is exclusively tied to CBS/Showtime and Pacquiao fights for rival network Time Warner/HBO.

"If I had been the promoter of that fight, it would have been made already. The fight is still interesting but it has lost some of its charm. It's still an interesting fight, Floyd has not lost but Pacquiao has already had two losses, but that does not diminish it as an anticipated fight," King told ESPN Deportes.

I'm sure Don would. Then he would pay off the judges and the referee to sway the outcome of the fight. And somehow a brawl would break out in the ring.

King would have got it done. He didn't have the risk aversion you see in Arum and Haymon. But yeah, everyone in involved would have got robbed. Twice.

Notice how Don says he would've offered both fighters $100million. But neither would have got more than $5million and they would have to split that after taxes. Sure Don can make a fight, but the fighters won't get paid. ..
