PLAYERS: Bob Arum

This coming from Chris Mannix of SI.com who is a very reliable boxing source. Arum is meeting with Pacquiao in the Philippines as we speak and it appears Manny has given the go ahead on a May fight, when in May seems to be up for discussion, but sometime before Mayweather has to go to jail. I don’t think it would be too much of an issue for Mayweather’s jail term to start a couple of days after June 1st if he needs any type of medical treatment after a fight. I am still not optimistic, but at least there appears to be some movement toward the fight happening. Arum who loves deadlines says it has to be done by Saturday.

Lack of Pacquiao-Mayweather Fight Comes Down to Money?

It seems almost absurd to think that some fight other than the much-discussed, oft-wished for Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather mega-fight could be any more lucrative for anyone involved. The reason contemplating such an idea is almost ludicrous is pretty simple: Pacquiao-Mayweather would be the biggest bout boxing has seen in decades.
