Apparently, in order for Margarito to reapply for a license in California, the commission is demanding Margarito to drop the lawsuit he filed against the CSAC. If this is in fact true, i'm under the impression that the NSAC is more than likely to grant Margarito a one fight licence.

Jim Gibbons is the Governor of Nevada...he is a Republican. The commission consists of part time people, so I am sure he could remove who he wants - but it is not worth it if they haven't done anything wrong.

I don't see this getting quite that political.

I'm willing to bet the Casinos have a lot of influence over a Republican Governor of Nevada. This fight means big $$$ for them. If the NSAC sends Pacquiao Margarito to *Mexico*, of all places, I could imagine a certain Republican Governor who'll be kissing a considerable portion of his reelection campaign contributions goodbye...

Republican...Democrat...I don't think it matters either way, I just don't see this fight as high profile enough to make that sort of impact.

They let Lewis - Tyson walk.

IIRC, Lewis Tyson was a done deal in Vegas until Tyson imploded. They gave Mike every opportunity...

Yeah...I think that's right. It was done, get canceled, and ended up in Memphis 5 or 6 months later.

With all that said, I still think the fight gets done because the Chairwoman wanted to give Margarito his license, or at the minimum a straight up and down vote, the other 4 did not.

ABSOLUTELY they'll let him fight.

I'm expecting it to pass with a 4-1 vote....the only question is who gets to be that 1?

Bob Arum and Manny Pacquiao.

They want nothing to do with Floyd "Money" Mayweather...

Actually, it's just the opposite. The reason why Bob Arum doesn't want anything to do with Floyd "Money" Mayweather is because he DOES want money.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Don't get me wrong, I have no doubt that he'll want to make the fight, but for now, I think he'd like to make as much money as possible off of Manny before he fights Floyd, because regardless of if he wins or loses, that will likely be Manny's last fight and Arum knows that.

You gotta keep in mind that it's been a long time since Arum has made the kind of money that he's making off of Pacquiao. I mean, he never really got a chance to make that kind of money with Floyd because Floyd bought himself out of his contract right before he started getting the big PPV paydays (I believe the Judah fight was his last fight with Arum)...and De La Hoya had left Arum long before then (I think it was in 2001, prior to the Castillejo fight), so for the past 9 years roughly, Arum hasn't had that big ticket PPV guy.

That's a great point about Arum. So why does Floyd want to wait? Is he burned out? It just seems like time will reduce the interest in the fight as well as make Floyd slower with age and less sharp. He should take the fight sooner rather than later, if he even wants it. I think he knows he'll be favored to beat Pac, so I don't buy him being scared.
