Pacquiao has a fight this Saturday. Until that fight is over, any talks regarding any other fights don't mean a whole lot.

arum has never wanted this fight & both floyd & pac have never shown they wanted it enough... if THEY don`t have the ambition to go down alongside the true greats then I don`t think they deserve to be spoken of day in & day out on here like something special because they are not until they take the ultimate test vs each other.

If they sign for Bradley witout trying genuinely to make the mayweather fight then it's clearly another duck.

We already know ducquiao doesn't want this fight

Uhh., maybe because they have a fight this Saturday and are trying to ignore a rival's distractions so that they won't lose

So, Floyd picks a date and venue without consulting the 'presumed' opponent who has a fight coming up, which means he won't be negotiating now regardless, and this means Arum and Pac are making excuses? How many future fights is Floyd negotiating a week out from a fight?

Both will be in the boxing hall of fame. Like it or not, Arum has gotten Pac an array of belts across weight classes that will probably never be duplicated again. I don't think they will lose sleep over your assessment at all.

then he needs to say so. Say he'll deal with it later and talk with them if they're serious.
Instead he's spending a bunch of energy shooting down the fight

Arum could easily negotiate with Mayweather on the low then present the parameters of the deal to Pac after the fight to see what he thinks about them. He seems reluctant to do so though.

"Bunch of Energy"? You have more tied up in this thread than he did making an off the cuff remark.
