I guess the stadium is finally built. I'm glad that Bob the Builder received the permits to build the stadium. The stadium has been the greatest construction project since the Hoover Dam.

I did call him a liar because he made similar statements countless times before which were all proven to be lies. Didn't he also recently claim to have "secret" talks which were quickly dismissed as lies?.

Dumbass worthless piece of shit.

"Both networks want this fight to happen. All signs seem to point to the fight happening early next year," Arum told the San Francisco Chronicle.

We been around this block over and over again and it's to the point that it's getting sickening. Arum is nothing but a snake and he will do everything his powers to try to sell the upcoming pacquiao and best way to do it is attach Mayweather name to the promotion. It appears year after year that the fight is going to happen and how long has been already lol.

Did Arum EVER talk this seriously about Mayweather vs Pacquiao when BOTH Pacquiao and Mayweather weren't scheduled to fight someone?.

I'm sure both networks want it. With so many hands in the cookie jar, there might not be enough cookies to go around though. Floyd wants a cut, Arum wants a cut, HBO wants a cut, Showtime wants a cut. HBO will probably be cut out since Floyd is under contract with Showtime. Pacquiao can't sign to TMT because he's signed to Top Rank. It'd have to be a co-promotion on Showtime, no other way. And either TMT or Top Rank will have to take the smaller cut, THIS is where the problem will lie, IMO.

Just let the fight happen for goodness sake.

I been waiting for this fight to happen when both Floyd and Pacquiao were more in their primes a couple years back.

It was what kept me "tuned into" boxing during my school years.

I would go to the computer lab on my off time and just watch their fights and highlights for hours on end... in between studying of course

But as the weeks, months and years crept by me... I started to realize both camps always came up with something last minute to prevent this potentially epic fight from happening.

So I went from first frustrated to annoyed to now just indifferent.

It would have been so cool to watch the slick counter style of Floyd vs the prime aggressive volume punching style of Pacquiao... IN THEIR PRIME YEARS.

Now I think it is a bit past their due date.

However it would still be in interesting clash of styles IF it ever happens in the next decade or so..

I would still take my time to see the fight if they are in their 40's-50's lol!!
