Once again, we are not going to get into detail about which side is holding up the fight the entire world has been begging to see. It could be Floyd Mayweather Jr. and it could be Manny Pacquiao. At the end of the day, we simply have to take a look at all the crap we’ve seen flying out of both corners and make an educated assessment. After Mayweather defeated Miguel Cotto on Saturday night, he said that Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum is the one holding the fight up. During a recent interview with ESPN 110 in Las Vegas, Arum said that is completely bogus and compared Floyd to one of Adolph Hitler’s associates.
“For two years Pacquiao has said that he will take any drug test, whoever administers it, so why is that still being talked about by Mayweather?” Arum said according to Sports Radio Interviews. “You see Mayweather is from the school of propaganda that Joseph Goebbels, who was (Adolf) Hitler’s publicist, adopted. The more you say things over and over again the more people believe them.”
Arum also said that Pacquiao’s side has proposed a number of scenarios in which the fighters would split the money evenly and Mayweather continues to turn them down. As for why, Arum had some similar thoughts to the ones we shared with you earlier from Pacquiao’s trainer.
