Is it me or am I the only one that notices how nice Floyd Mayweather and Bob Arum are being to each other? I first noticed at NBHOF that Floyd and Bob were both there and Floyd thanked Bob for everything he has done with the sport. Bob Arum was likewise cordial to Floyd. Then in the last week or two, I hear Bob Arum saying nice things about how well Floyd did against Canelo Alvarez. Not too long ago I see Floyd and Bob taking a picture with comedian/actor Jamie Foxx. Before Bob would say smart aleck remarks about Floyd but now the change of tone is surprising. Only one conclusion I could come up with ...
Bob Arum and Floyd Mayweather will work together again. Not that Floyd will leave Goldenboy Promotions but they will all co-promote together. It's no surprise that fans would still want to see the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight, especially after Manny is taking drug test now. Floyd is now in a position to say, hey you took the test for Brandon Rios, now take the test with me. Problem solved. If Floyd does not land the mega fight still with Manny, there is always undefeated Timothy Bradley. Floyd has options between both fighters.
Hey it's just a hunch and I could be completely wrong, but just think about it. Why all the friendly kinds words with each other all of a sudden. Leave some feedback.
