The guy in the yellow shirt is Tommy Smalls.
And don't get your hopes up...there's is no "secret"...and no, 50 is NOT in communication with Floyd.
The only reason why Pacquiao THINKS he'll be fighting Floyd is because THAT is exactly what they want him to think.
Pacquiao didn't want to fight Bradley...but he didn't want to fight Marquez either. The ONLY person he wanted to fight was Floyd. He's ready to get out of boxing. He's ready to cash out on the biggest fight possible. That's why it was supposedly taking him so long to make a decision on his next opponent. He didn't want to fight either one...only Mayweather.
So, they had to once again create the illusion that they were locking in that fight for him. Michael Koncz has been pretending to call Al Haymon and Leonard Ellerbe on the regular. Like he himself said, he's been in communication with 50 for the past couple of months...which not so coincidentally is just how long it's taken for Manny to "choose" his next opponent. In fact, when the reports came out that 50 was talking to Miguel Cotto and trying to sign him to TMT Promotions, well, it was Michael Koncz who suggested that idea to 50. I can confirm ALL of that from an EXTREMELY reliable source.
So anyway, Pacquiao hops on a plane headed to the US and guess what...he STILL had not agreed to the Marquez fight, despite what Arum and Koncz were floating to the media. What he was TOLD was that if he fights Marquez, they can guarantee that Mayweather will be next in 2013. He was given assurances that once he arrived in the US, he would see firsthand why they could guarantee it. So Manny basically tells thems, "Okay, but Floyd better next, or else." So right when he's set to travel to the US, BOOM, Koncz drops his bombshell that 50 and Manny are going to do a joint promotional venture. Funny thing is Manny had absolutely no clue what any of that is about. I can also confirm that 100%.
So now you have 50 doing interviews saying TMT is about bringing you the fights you want to see...Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao....The Fight. Bob Arum is doing interviews talking about how he would love to work with 50. Koncz is out there spitting his propaganda too. Now fast forward and Manny is in the States meeting with 50 Cent and Tommy Smalls, two guys who, as you know, have always been affiliated with Floyd Mayweather. He has a private meeting with 50, Koncz and Arum shortly before the press conference with Marquez (the picture you see of 50, Pacquiao, and Tommy), and then Pacquiao emerges from that meeting telling reporters how confident he is that a fight with Mayweather will happen in 2013. Well that's because that's the bullshit they're feeding him. They HAD to feed him that bullshit because he's being difficult and stubborn, so the kid needed to be put in check...so they used 50, Tommy, and the promise of Mayweather in 2013 in order to get what they always wanted...another fight with Marquez.
And guess what...barring a knockout, Pacquiao will likely lose that fight on the scorecards. Mark my words! If he does not KO Marquez, which I don't think he will, then he will NOT win on the scorecards.
Now, as far as 50 goes, I wouldn't think that he doesn't know what's going on either...but at the same time, 50 needs to make certain moves if he hopes to actually do something in boxing with his promotional company and the fighters he has. But that's a whole different story...one that I don't really care to get into at the moment.
Now I know there will be some naysayers out there who will read this and won't want to believe it, but I back everything that I've written 110%...and members from Pacquiao's own camp have been on the phone to confirm it. At the end of the day, you can choose to believe whatever you want, but best believe, when all is said and done, I'll have a smile on my face as I go back and listen to the hours of audio while I'm writing my book. LOL.
