Pac/Floyd is DEAD

leave a comment »

Pacquiao may not fight Floyd in the ring but he will meet him in court

Bob Arum claims the proposed super bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather is officially dead after the Filipino fighter instructed Arum (his promoter) to look for another fight.

“We contacted Manny [Pacquiao], and his position is firm, irrevocable. He instructed us to pursue another fight, period. I don’t see the fight happening now.”

The fight, which would have made both fighters as well as Arum millions, has been in jeopardy ever since the two sides failed to agree over blood testing to ensure a clean fight.

Now Pacquiao has filed a suit in Las Vegas against Mayweather Jr. and Sr, as well as naming Oscar De La Hoya and Richard Schaefer (Mayweather Jr.’s promoters) as defendants as well in a defamation case for $75,000, it appears that no bout will be taking place especially not on the announced March 13th date.

Yuri Foreman, who won the WBA Jr middleweight title on the Cotto/Pac undercard, is being lined up as a potential opponent for Pac but the fight will not garner anywhere near the attention or money that a bout with Floyd would have.

If the fight does go ahead then I can repost this vid from GP!
