Floyd Mayweather: " How Can a 6 Million Dollar Fighter Offer Me Anything?"

By Kevin Davis

Floyd Mayweather has been one of the world's best fighters, for the past 16 years. With that being said it always seems that he is being targeted as a ducker when he has given the world 43 greats without a defeat. On the openning press tour for his Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 fight in December, Pacquiao stated that he is willing to accept a 55/45 split in favor of Mayweather, to make the fight happen.

Broner’s trainer Mike Stafford said to Bleacherreport.com “We’ll go to Ricky Burns and get that other title.

Arum: "Tuesday we should be making an announcement on Donaire-Arce"

By Kevin Davis

Looks as if the fight is still going to happen, just not in Mexico. Nonito Donaire didn't feel as if he needed to defend his title on Arce home court, unless they backed up a huge money truck. Then you have Jorge Arce who wants to be paid like he is Donaire. Which makes this a hard cookie to crack.

Being a promoter is not as easy as it looks,because there is a ton of ego involved in boxing and to be able to maintain that and be effective at your job, speaks… Continue
