Floyd Mayweather is calling out Manny Pacquiao for a May 5th fight in Vegas, now Pac Man is holding things up.
I wonder how much money this fight is going to gross when it is all over and done with.
Casual Boxing Fans – Have always blamed Mayweather for this fight not happening
Real Boxing Fans – Have always known The “Bobfather” (Bob Arum) is the reason this fight has never happened. There is no real boxing fan that has ever blamed Mayweather or Manny for this fight not happening.
Bob Arum rapes Manny as far as money goes and that has always been known. Bob Arum knows 2 things.
1. Floyd is going to require money on the backend off the PPV buys and syndication of the fight. This is money that comes in for years and years and years after the fight has happen, Bob Arum only wants to give the fighters the upfront money, extra off sales, and the initial PPV overage.
2. If (actually in my opinion when) Floyd beats Manny, the money train is over for Bob. Manny will still make $$ but not the kind of revenue he generates now.
Honestly, had this fight happened 2 – 3 years ago, Manny had a pretty good chance but at this point… I believe he gets the hell beat out of him and receives the boxing lesson of a lifetime
these are the only two Boxers that i know. if they fight and one wins.. what else is left of boxing? MMA Killed it. its not a bad thing thugoh. I see it being more of a striking game where wrestling and bjj and stuff are all grappling games. only thing is that you dont really hear too much about grappling other than in MMA like UFC and Strikeforce. So, maybe Boxing is going to end up going that route and you just wont hear too much about it anymore.
