All is quiet from Manny and Bob Arum after Mayweather's tirade yesterday.
I'll give it to Floyd, he's doing whatever he has to in order to get the fight made. But, as we seen last time with his racist rant, Manny seems utterly uninterested in retaliating or making Floyd pay for those in the ring.
Last note on the whole situation, is Manny's next opponent, is set to be named by weeks' end - if it's going to be one of the 4 from before.
The issue I'm seeing with Floyd's May 5th fight, is it really boils down to Manny, Canelo or Guerrero. It's clear he wants a Mexican fighter for Cinco de Mayo, but there really aren't any marquee 147lb Mexicans right now. There are some 140's and 154's, and that's about it.
I still doubt the fight gets made because of Bob Arum. But at least we can talk about it.
Couple of other fights finalized for next month (which is shaping up to be ****ing awesome):
Paul "The Punisher" Williams vs. Nobuhiro Ishida
Tavoris "Thunder" Cloud vs. Gabe Campillo
These will be on Showtime on 2/18. Chris Arreola is slated for the card as well, but no opponent is set. This is all per Dan Goossen promotions.
