Arum is probably #2 behind Don King in terms of shady mother****ers in boxing. Believing anything he says isn't an option.

So, my predictions for their next fights:

* Mayweather-Khan
* Pacquiao-Bradley

And, no Pacquiao-Mayweather, again. Or ever.

It looks to me like Pacman V Bradley and Mayweather V Khan will happen before any May/Pac fight.

Both parties are milking the cashcow

No, it's on Team Mayweather now. If Team Pacquiao has an issue with USADA, then bring in someone else.

As with Pacquiao supposedly being suspicious -- based only on wild claims which are now the subject of a lawsuit -- the issue is not why Arum or Team Pacquiao views the USADA with suspicion. The issue is how to get a testing regime done that both sides agree is neutral and unbiased.

If Team Pacquiao does not feel that the USADA is the entity to do this -- for whatever reason -- simply replace the USADA with another country's WADA-approved agency. Problem then solved.

Let's hope that Team Mayweather does not feel it's the USADA or nothing. Since Team Pacquiao has moved forward and agreed to full testing with no cutoff date, then it would seem very easy to move this process forward one more step, get the neutral non-USADA agency, and get this fight made.

I honestly hope that Floyd Mayweather is not looking to dodge Manny Pacquiao this time. The fans want the fight, so let's hope that it can be made.

No. You are either omitting something important on purpose or forgetting it. This is critical:

More evidence this is in Team Mayweather's hands, again --

Quote:
"We are OK to move off USADA," Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, who is representing Mayweather, told ESPN.com.
Team Pacquiao has publicly agreed to full non-USADA testing. Team Mayweather has publicly said it is ok with moving away from the USADA.

It's on Team Mayweather now.

And, sadly, based on this week's events that seem to be geared to generating hype for Khan-Floyd, I think that means there will not be a Pac-Floyd fight.

Again.

Or ever.

Arum said he wants WADA, so let WADA do their job. And part of their job is to use what they think is best and respectable (USADA).

Arum is a fool.

You continue to say it's on Team Mayweather NOW... Yet you also say he's ducking Pac AGAIN... So exactly when does the blame lie on Pacs team?

Floyd has gone on record from the beginning stating that he doesn't have an issue with USADA not doing the testing.. Why would Arum JUST NOW state they're a problem? Arum's doing something slick... You yourself said the ONLY holdup was the testing without cutoff, but put NO blame on Pac and his team not agreeing before... Both sides are to blame buddy, no fighter is ducking another. It's all about the money.

It's Pac's way or no fight. Always has been since ODLH. Always will be in his future bouts. But anytime Pac shows ANY sign of wanting the fight they all jump on it and somehow Mayweather is the blame for the fight not happening.

Arum said WADA. WADA said USADA. If Arum says no will he be blamed for the fight not taking place? NO.

Arum is a fool.
Here is what Arum said:

Quote:
"We don’t accept the USADA handling it"
Here is what Mayweather's representative said:

Quote:
"We are OK to move off USADA"
Solution that matches what both sides have said:

Have a WADA-approved, non-USADA agency handle the testing (for example, the "USADA" of France). Problem solved. Both fighters are subject to full, random OSDT done by a WADA-approved agency.

All we need to hear now is that Team Mayweather will honor their commitment to move off of the USADA. Then, it seems, the fight will be on.

Do I think Team Mayweather will move off of the USADA?

No, I don't.

I hope I'm wrong. I think many fans also hope I'm wrong.

Tell Mike Wilbon that, or many other boxing journalists. That line may work at Fight H_pe, but doesn't seem to be the general feeling amongst most boxing writers and fans.

floyd would be pulling his 7th straight GBP in-house fight since baldomir. i expect him to not fight pacquiao again and go staright to khan next especially if pac looks good against marquez and after khan wins against zab judah.

if he does fight Khan first that doesnt mean he ducked Manny that just means Roach is using Khan to get a better look at Floyd..... someones got to be sacrificed here, I mean they did the same shit with Garcia, sent him out to Mexico to fight Margarito just before the Pac Margarito fight...
