Promoter and MMA hater Bob Arum broke the news that talks for the mega fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are over.
“It’s over, O-V-E-R … They’re viewed by the Pacquiao side as being partisan,” Arum said, referring to the USADA. “He doesn’t want to use them. I don’t want to use them. They’re so inflexible they can’t be used … As far as I’m concerned the fight is over … Can it be revisited in the autumn? We’ll see.” [FoxSports]
Lets hope that this is just a power play by Arum to get Mayweather to drop the issue of Olympic style drug testing. Both Pacquiao and Mayweather are reported to be making 30-40 Millions each for the fight.
