Boxing News 2014: Mayweather Rejects Pacquiao as Ring Opponent
By Vittorio Hernandez | June 10, 2014 8:23 AM EST
In spite of a belief by Top Rank Promotions boss Bob Arum and promises by Prince Amir Shafipour that the Dream Match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather would still take place, Money May insisted he has lost interest in fighting the Filipino champ.
"Now, I am feeling I wouldn't even give him a chance. He had a chance and he blew it," Stance.com reports, quoting the unbeaten American boxer.
The stand of Money May received a lot of flak from netizens who shared their comments on the Web site.
Roland S said that Mayweather "is just too afraid of manny. He's not a BOXER, he's CHICKEN."
Adrian F added, "The running away is over. Mayweather should prove his real power as he claims it to be."
Harvox P believes Mayweather is a disgrace to African-Americans who dominate the sports if he continues to find excuses not to face Pacquiao inside the ring.
Arum believes the match would take place before 2016 ends and has expressed willingness to sit down with the Money team to work out details even if Mayweather has stated he would not deal with Arum.
The Top Rank boss said that refusing to deal with him is just one of Mayweather's many whole line of excuses. Arum also pointed to Money May's lucrative deal with satellite TV network Showtime, which pays the American boxer big money for his fights, as another excuse.
The UAE prince has promised to bring the Pacquiao-Mayweather bout to Dubai in 2015.
