If Floyd was serious, he should have called Pac out publicly without all this cryptic bullshit that always leaves him with an escape route to yet another crappy match-up his fans will lap up. He could have gone to the media and demanded that Pac face him, and kept on doing it until the public demanded it, but he arbitrarily chose to book a venue and a date and drop stupid-ass hints through his team about fighting a little man. The guy is a con artist, a stupendously talented con artist when it comes to boxing, but a con artist all the same.
But yet Arum is an honorable man? Man come on you can't be serious here? It's PBF's fault that he booked the best date of the year and made it known he wants to fight Pac? PBF is trying to make the fight and Arum is the one trying to make it seem like he's trying to make the fight, the same shit he's been doing for years now.
