Someone asked me over the weekend what the chances are this fight actually happens.
In my mind it is still on the low side. Too many personalities involved for me to feel confident about it happening. Floyd, Arum, Golden Boy, Roach, Haymon, Ariza and etc.
Plus I think Floyd locking in May 5th is problematic as it takes a lot of the power away from Top Rank, with that being said here is the latest from Arum and video of Floyd being Floyd.
Top Rank big boss Bob Arum disclosed on Sunday he is holding talks with at least two investment groups keen on staging the megabuck match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather – boxing’s premier attractions. Arum said Pacquiao’s adviser.
Mike Koncz is also involved in the negotiations, confirming a statement made by the Filipino fighter late last week that something is going on in efforts to stage the mouth-watering clash between the two leading claimants to the mythical title of pound-for-pound king.
What tickles Arum’s fancy is the fact that the same group “is also in talks with Mayweather.”
“Mayweather is going solo,” said Arum, noting that the Oscar De La Hoya-owned Golden Boy Promotions (GBP) is not involved in the on-going discussions.
