Default Bob Arum blocked all the fights with Floyd

Floyd wanted Oscar when they were both under Top Rank. When Floyd was 135 he says he was willing to jump two weight classes to fight Oscar on so many occasions and Arum said no. Why? Bc he was making money off Oscar, Floyd.

Floyd wanted to fight Cotto at 140 and Bob Arum said no bc Cotto was too green. Again Bob Arum is making money off Cotto and Floyd.

Now same shit again with Pac.

But who always get the blame?

Stop forcing Floyd to fight Pac, haven't you seen Ali. Health preservation come first dummy.

Maybe Bob knew Margo loaded his gloves that's why he was more than willing to make that particular fight!

Man, your a boring turd!

Floyd has openly admitted he shats his dacks at the thought of getting cunt slapped by the Pinoy tornado. The thought of getting hammered by an Asian has mind****ed the insecure, racist, closet queer Floyd beyond repair and not even his devoted lapdog Leonard can do a thing about it!

Floyd Mayweather, at that time was an extremely green fighter and unproven commodity. Why would Arum take arguably the greatest and most lucrative attraction in Boxing and match him with some unproven Jr. Lightweight.

That's like Adrian Broner calling out Manny Pacqauio, what in the world would Pac gain from fighting some unproven kid.

I don't think Arum was trying to maliciously hinder Floyd I just think he understood that this fight would have been far to premature.

I think they are both to blame. Battle of the egos.
