Time to pay the piper T... Bob Arum is offering to promote a Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight, under normal promotional terms — The hitch is he also wants a share of Mayweather’s money — My guess is he knows this is a non-negotiable for Team Money.  “Right now there’s no development. Obviously we’re waiting to hear from the Mayweather people. But we’re prepared to do the fight in May. … It will be late in May. But the problem remains the same in that no one from Mayweather’s side would guarantee his purse. “I can only guarantee Manny’s purse, but if Floyd wants to make a deal with me then I’m open to that. I can guarantee his purse but I then I will have a share in his revenue.” said Arum — This fight is looking less and less likely to happen by the day. -TO Mayweather and 50 Cent Flash the Greens Floyd Mayweather Purchases New Ride

STRAIT JABS

The Klitschkos are promoting their new documentary, while contender after contender is exposed / eliminated.  These men should time their exits wisely.  Fight Chisora, Helenius, Povetkin, and then walk away.  Let Thompson, Chambers, Arreola, and Fury fight it out once they’re gone.  They are not saviors, but they are good fighters, and all speak English.  We’ll do alright...
