"Arum said while Mayweather would have taken the $8 million to fight Margarito, he asked for a $10 million guarantee to fight opponents such as Miguel Cotto and Ricky Hatton, when Arum was only willing to guarantee $7 million.
Arum said Mayweather also asked for $20 million to fight De La Hoya, a fight Arum said he wasn't interested in participating in.
"That's not in the cards," Arum said. "He wants $20 million for the De La Hoya fight? It's not there. Sometimes, my man, you gotta know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. We'll talk about things down the road."

Can you read kid?? Mayweather had no problem with the bum Marg, but Arum wanted to lock him into a long contract with low guarantees and even told him that 20million for DLH was ridiculous. We all know how that turned out. He made 32 mill guranteed for Cotto. Do you see know how wrong you are and how Arum and his shady business practices screw up fights??

Floyds the ultimate victim of circumstance

He never ducks anyone stuff just always happens. Only to him mind you, everyone else is in the same business as him trying to make the most money they can but for some reason its only him who is constantly getting blocked form the fights he "wants" so bad

Whats your definition of a real champion in 2012? Is it wbc, wba, ibf, ibo, ring. You tell me.

Did Floyd face everyone he could have? No, but Boxing is a business and he faced the guys that were good enough or in the position to bring him the most money, except for Manny and that blame goes around on everyone in the situation.

At the same time, Mayweather got paid $8,000,001 to fight Baldomir who had 2 belts and was the ring champion.

Margarito worked for Arum who Floyd wasn't going to give a dime to.

Of course Martinez will try to come to 154 to take on a smaller fighter. Martinez likes calling out small guys, but you don't hear Martinez saying he will fight anywhere north of 160 against Ward when that was introduced.

Martinez would tower Floyd and Pac in size. Both of them are natural 147 lbs and Martinez would be a huge JMW.

Let's not be to hypocritical here.
How am I being hypocritical? I said I don't fault Floyd for not fighting Martinez or Canelo...and I agree, Martinez is a ***** IMO. He expects the little gys to move up and face him at a catch weight but refuses to move 8 pounds North and fight Froch or Ward at 168. All I'm saying is, Floyd doesn't like to take risky fights anymore....hasn't since he was a lightweight and I did say I respect him for fighting Cotto.

To be fair, Mayweather would not have been a decided underdog in any of the big fights that didn't happen. Yes, his legacy will largely be defined by who he didn't fight, but none of those guys would have bee projected to pummel him.

yeah a year and 4 months later NOT when the Iron was hot...he waited just long enough for the guy to be 38 years old and be out 16 months

Dont be a dumb **** and brag on a Shane Mosley Victory
he was 38 years old and was 2-4-1 in his last 7 fights and floyds "big win" over him was something 3 other guys did too ...so big ****ing deal.
