It's a no on May 5th.

God damn do I hate Bob Arum with a passion.

Why don't they use UNLV?
They won't use the Thomas and Mack center because it is off the strip. The money is on the strip and the Venue is not what would hold up the deal. Arum said he would do the MGM in late May. Probably the 26th. They can make the money charging $75 ppv fees, enormous closed circuit fees, and movie theatre money.

This is strictly about ego's. Although Floyd wants a guarenteed purse so Golden Boy might have to step up the plate.
