PBF better watch what he signs though as I don't see him fighting pass Pacman. Not sure why I say that but for $100 million, King will need 3-5 fights to make his $$$ back! Does anyone see him fighting more than 2-3 fights...I am having a hard time picturing that myself! Bring on Pacman vs PBF & fuck Margacheato & his cheating ass & his bullshit belt! Thoughts y'all?

Ahhhahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahaaha.

Hype.

Bringing it.

Dude, what are your thoughts on this?

I actually (I cant believe Im about to type this) miss that old mother fucker Don King. I need him back in my life. If only to remind me there is someone who walks this earth that is more full of shit than myself.

Seriously, I would like to see the mix master back in the mix.

My thoughts?

I think Floyd was pissed at Al Haymon and Ross Greenburg for basically leaving him out to dry.

I think Floyd is sending them a message, saying, "Hey, I don't need you fucks. You need me! If you all want to profit off this mega-fight, you need me too so you fools better start respecting me and treating me like you treated Oscar De La Hoya!"

I think everyone involved knew WELL IN ADVANCE that Floyd wasn't fighting on no November 13, but I think certain individuals had discussions anyway in order to solidify the fight no matter the date.

I think Arum, however, being the slick ol' bastard that he is, said, "Fuck this! I'm not holding up my company for this spoiled little brat. You guys can do all the talking you want, but here are Manny's terms, so take it or leave it. I'm going to do me!"

Then I think Arum fucked Floyd AND Greenburg to benefit his own fighter. Great move by Arum. I can't even hate on that.

Then, Greenburg, who's job is already on the line due to certain expectations that he promised (one of which was the delivery of this mega-fight), had to also fuck Floyd so he wouldn't look bad. Hey, I can't hate on Greenburg either...when it comes to your job, you gotta do what you gotta do.

So poor Floyd is left with some cat who NEVER talks to the media, so his only recourse was to use Ellerbe to try to diffuse it...which didn't really pan out the way he wanted (what Ellerbe's statement SHOULD have said was "THERE WERE NO NEGOTIATIONS FOR A NOVEMBER 13 BOUT").

So now, Floyd is pissed...mainly at Haymon and Greenburg...so he goes and has a talk with King. He conveniently leaks that out on Twitter...just like he conveniently leaks out this $100,000,000 promotional agreement.

I really don't think this is anything different than what NORMALLY goes on behind the scenes...it's just that it's much more high-profile now because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, is involved with spreading all the little tidbits of information from their point of view. And now, you got a guy like Floyd who's using social networking to try to manipulate certain things (I gotta give him props for that, because it's actually a pretty good idea), so it becomes and even bigger story.

It's really all just comedy to me. I mean, I'll report on it, write an article and whatnot, because I have to and it's content, but really, regardless of everything that's going down, it's all meaningless.

Manny is still going to fight Margarito on November 13.

Mayweather still won't be fighting until 2011.

I mean, I wish it really did have some meaning, but I just don't think so.

It's fun though. I would LOVE to see King back in the mix. It just seems so fitting that he is. I mean, a fight this big, how can he NOT be involved. LOL.
