Default Report: Team Alvarez Preparing To Meet With GBP To Work On Mayweather 5/5/12 Fight

From a site that can't be linked to here (you know which one it is).

So, as predicted by several people here on ESB, Team Mayweather may be heading down a face-saving, status-as-a-"draw"-saving attempt to book Alvarez for the May 5, 2012 date.

Report says Team Alvarez looking to head to LA next week to work with Golden Boy on a potential Floyd-Canelo deal.

May 5, Cinco De Mayo, popular Mexican champion. Also, after watching Alvarez-Gomez, should be easy work for Floyd if he takes this fight.

Don't get caught up in the Twitter/Facebook/Fight Hype potential smokescreens; look behind the curtain (note to non-Americans: this is a reference to legendary American movie The Wizard Of Oz and its "man behind the curtain") and see what may actually be getting worked on by the people pulling the levers.

I think it's Sunnn that has been saying this: Floyd-Alvarez, May 5, 2012.

Is it going to happen?

Pac is ducking Mayweather. Mayweather has to fight on May 5 so if Pac continues to duck this fight works.

Why are Bob and Manny ducking the fight with Floyd?

Say what you will, but it looks like the real plan for Team Mayweather all along may be coming to light.

Look, if you're a Mayweather fan, you may want to start making Canelo Alvarez seem like King Kong Jr. Even if Gomez made Alvarez look like Donkey Kong Jr.

Well Team Pacquiao could easily call mayweathers bluff and agree to fight on 5/5/12 but they have not and will not as they do not want the fight.

What more do you expect floyd to do.

They're going to negotiate with Golden Boy on their next fight and would be shooting for a May 5th fight. There's no guarantee they'll be working on a Floyd fight at all; the article mentions Cotto and others as options as well.

I think once we know what happens for May 5, 2012 things will become clearer.

Could be Team Mayweather had this as their plan all along. Guess we'll find out, eventually.

After Pac-Mayweather didn't happen in the wake of Pac-Cotto 1, I never thought the superfight would actually happen.

And I still don't.
