This fight will be made. It is smart business-wise for the Mayweather camp for 2 reasons.

1. Bradley has a win over Pacquiao(no matter what you think you saw). If Maywether beats Bradley(which is almost a guarantee), then he doesnt have to fight Pacquiao because he beat the guy who beat him. OR, he can go into negotiations for a Pacquiao fight with a larger chunk of the purse. What was 55 - 45 will easilit become 65 - 35 or worse.

2. Bradley is at least on paper a legit fight, so all the Sergio Martinez vs Mayweather talk goes away. Mayweather will kill 2 birds with one stone. He can avoid the threat that Martinez poses and save face because his fans will argue that Bradley was a better opponent anyway.

On another note, I wouldn't mind a Mayweather/Bradley fight. Hell, Tim already got a Pac fight, which I was totally against at one point, so a Floyd fight doesn't sound so far-fetched.

Arum would more than likely be opposed to it. When it comes to showing those books after a fight is done, Arum treats it like he's being asked to empty out his pockets after a poker game that he just won.

If he's able to rip Manny's pockets, then he'd have a field day with Tim's, even if he had to sit down with GBP and open the book of expenses and so on. Now that I think about, he may just actually be crazy enough to do it.

Im not sure how cool Floyd feels about his relatively unknown opponents making more than $3M (aside from Cotto who made $8M), because he'd probably go into the whole "nobody knows this guy, Im building the fight, Im the bigger draw, Arum just wants more money, etc".

Bradley was just guaranteed $5M in his last fight, so Im sure he'll be looking for more than that. Arum will say, "We cant afford to pay you that big of a guarantee", when in actuality, he probably would be able to, but leave it to Bob to get his "other cut".

Sheesh, the more scenarios I come up with, the fight just seems to have this "yes, no, maybe so" thingy going on. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
