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.



To add to these points, wouldnt it kill Mayweather vs Pacquiao if Pacquiao was to lose to somebody like Margarito? If that were to happen, I'd think that Arum would take a considerable loss. We all know that Mayweather will never fight Margarito if he beats Pacquiao. Depending on how bad Margarito beats Pacquiao, how lucrative would a rematch possibly be between the two? Arum's hate for Mayweather seems to be affecting his decision making, in terms of the most lucrative opportunities available. There was a chance that Pacquiao would beat Mayweather, then Pacquiao could likely reach DLH's numbers. Maybe Arum just aint that confident in his guy...

Even worse...suppose Margarito beats Pacquiao, which would instantly make him one of the hottest fighters in the sport, and he can't even fight in the US.

I can't even guess, while @ 1 point I liked him, I say he should not be able to fight!

I voted that they will tell Margacheato to go back to California, again.

But, I think from an economic standpoint, there would be a lot of political and social pressure from around the country if "Cheeato" fights in Nevada. In Mexico, they think that Margarito has done no wrong, and Arum knows that, supports that, and could see greater money lining his pockets with Margarito fighting in Mexico than in Nevada.

To the people of Mexico and with the strong WBC backing with Arum as well, by Margarito fighting there, it takes the pressure off. In the USA, their are far few people that want Margarito to fight than in Mexico.

Its already government run. Nevada State athletic commission, California State Athletic Commission etc... They are all state government run. I think the argument is for them to all fall under one umbrella. A federal commission may be more effective, that way, you deal with one set of people and one set of rules for the fight game. I'm in favor of that.
