OK, so Floyd is the one looking for an "angel" to guarantee his purse...LMMFAO, like that would be a problem if the fight were to actually be made??? Pac said he would take less to make the fight, but according to the article below it will have to be 50\50...Give me a fucking break, anyone who has any sense about them at all will see through this shit (and most around here have seen it for awhile)...I would laugh my FUCKING ass off if Floyd called the bluff and said "OK, lets do this shit on your date in late May"...Hell, I'd buy a PPV a $70 PPV just to see the video of Arum trying to find a way out of it...This shit is beyond comical at this point (has been for the last 2 years, but even more so now)...
That being said, wonder what the judge would think about Floyd saying "Fuck you Arum, Fuck you Pac, Fuck you May 5, let's get this shit done on the day you chooose"
This is the article I'm talking about, and I even copied it so you all don't have to click the link...There will be more below this BS....
Pacquiao's financial adviser Michael Koncz told The Associated Press on Thursday that a 45,000-seat boxing arena being built in Las Vegas won't be finished before the end of May and staging the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight in a smaller venue is "foolish from an economic standpoint."
Mayweather challenged and taunted Pacquiao to a May 5 bout in a tweet on Tuesday.
"Manny Pacquiao I'm calling you out let's fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see," he tweeted.
Mayweather is available for a fight in May at the MGM Grand Garden after a judge agreed last week to postpone his jail sentence for domestic violence until June. Mayweather was sentenced to 87 days in jail, but likely will serve less time.
The MGM Grand seats about 17,000, which could fetch around $20 million in sales, but the larger arena could raise an additional $30 million, Koncz said.
"Why would I tell Manny to fight on the 5th and throw away a percentage of 30 million? That's crazy," he said.
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has told the Philippines' GMA television the only reason the fight won't happen is if there is an "economic problem."
He said the fight "could happen very, very easily" at the end of May -- enough time to build the outdoor arena "the fight so badly needs."
"I will also guarantee Manny's purse," he said. "In other words, Manny doesn't want to go into the ring and just fight out a percentage."
He said Mayweather is looking for "outside parties to guarantee his end of the purse."
"So, until he finds the angel, there is no fight," Arum said.
In a separate interview with GMA, Pacquiao said that if Mayweather agrees to a "50-50 sharing, there will be no problem."
"The purse is not the issue right now, the date is," Koncz said. "But we don't have a problem splitting it 50-50."
(sorry for quoting that lolboxingsite, but this shit is ridiculous)
There is some shit from Arum claiming 50\50 as well (in addition to the 'angels' that Floyd will need to make any money)...Now Arum says Venue isn't an issue, they can fight anywhere...But it's gotta be "50\50" and since Floyd has no promoter he will need "angels" for his purse...Meanwhile, Arum is taking damn near 30% from Pacs purse EVERY FIGHT...Who has been brining home a bigger check? The fighter witha "promoter" or the one promoting himself...It's not like, even if he were to need a promoter, Floyd wouldn't be making Pacs purses look like a months worth of daycare for an infant..That's not to mention the REPORTED LOANS that Manny has had to take out from Top Rank and Co...
I'm over it, but the more this shit goes on I want to see Floyd kick the shit out of Manny even more...I love Pac, he is great and "most" of his PPVS are every bit worth the cash spent...Anyone who knows anything about boxing know that this fight is a wash, and that is why Arum avoids it at any and all costs...
COME ON BEN, BRING THE INTERVIEW THAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN CRAVING...GET ARUM ON THE LINE AND PUT HIM ON THE SPOT WITH THE FACTS!!! Is it possible or does he have your number blacklisted and sent straight to voicemail?! lmao
And with all of the above, I still have casual fans coming to me talking about "Mayweather is scared" or "Pac would kill him"...."blah blah blah" I just ignore them, I used to provide them links\youtube clips\anything else stating FACTS but they never seemed to bother researching it...The general public and casual fan see VILLAIN VS HERO, and don't give a damn about anything else....
