And now, Mayweather's camp is saying that there were never any negotiations that took place for a Nov. 13 fight. A close Mayweather adviser, Leonard Ellerbe says:
"Here are the facts," Ellerbe said in Monday's statement. "Al Haymon, [Golden Boy Promotions CEO] Richard Schaefer and myself speak to each other on a regular basis, and the truth is no negotiations have ever taken place, nor was there ever a deal agreed upon by Team Mayweather or Floyd Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao on Nov. 13. Either Ross Greenburg or Bob Arum is not telling the truth, but history tells us who is lying."Yes, history tells us who is lying. History tells us the people who accused Manny Pacquiao of using steroids are lying. History tells us that Mayweather and company are just all form and no substance. Here's what Mayweather has to say about his fight with Pacquiao:
"I'm not interested in rushing to do anything. I'm not really thinking about boxing right now. I'm just relaxing. I fought about 60 days ago, so I'm just enjoying myself, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying my vacation."Oh come on. You don't think about boxing, really? Let's list this down:
1. Mayweather Sr. accused Pacquiao of using steroids and the PBF wagon rode it. Mayweather's camp even got sued for spreading this false truth;
2. We heard a few months ago that Floyd Mayweather was to retire AGAIN from boxing for two years;
3. Manny agrees to everything Mayweather wants up to a 14-day window before the fight and a urine test right after their fight;
4. Now he's saying that he just fought 2 months ago and that he wants to relax? The fight's supposed to be in November. That's more or less 3 months from now. Don't you have enough time to relax?
And as mentioned above, Leonard Ellerbe denied any negotiations with Top Rank, right? Here's what Bob Arum said about the denial:
"If there is no negotiation, who imposed the gag order? Why they're doing this is absurd. What is motivating them to put something like this out? I'm not going to speculate but what are they doing? Schaefer said there was a gag order. Who could there be a gag order from if there were no negotiations? From the sky?Yeah, where would a gag order come from? From the sky?
What they said was absurd, but why did they say this? They could say a lot of other things. My feeling is that this is rapidly becoming one of the most bizarre things ever."
Hey look, even if there wasn't any negotiation, the PBF camp could've immediately denied it on the day or after the day Bob Arum gave Floyd the deadline for the Nov.13 fight. But no. Instead they chose to wait for the deadline to expire and that's when they denied any talks at all. Pardon the word but this is absofuckinglutely bullshit.
Word is, Mayweather is afraid to have is undefeated streak stained. He's afraid that he's gonna lose the last fight of his career. He doesn't want a 40-1-0 on his record, that 1 being a loss to Manny Pacquiao.
Bottomline: Mayweather is a coward. What a shame. Hey, even Oscar dela Hoya, who many consider is queer, fought valiantly against Manny Pacquiao. I wonder what's keeping his boy from fighting valiantly too. Oh right, he's a coward.
