Ariza lays the blame on Arum for Mayweather-Pacquiao fight not getting made

alex arizaBy Vitali Shaposhnikov: According to a report (, Alex Ariza has finally stated what the boxing world has been thinking an extended period of time now: that the reason Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquaio has never happened is all due to Arum’s personal agenda.

“It’s clear as to why the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight has never happened. It's always about what's best for Bob and his agenda… Whoever Manny fights, he has to fight in-house,” commented Ariza. While this is news coming out of Ariza’s mouth, to many, its yet another confirmation that Arum is milking Pacquiao without mercy.

Ariza also confirmed Arum’s personal feelings towards camp Mayweather: “Arum hates Floyd Mayweather, can't stand him, he doesn't want to see him make a dollar, can't stand Golden Boy, doesn't want to do business with them. I know that Michael Koncz says that he's having a meeting with Bob to negotiate the Mayweather fight. They're having a meeting on how to make sure that this fight doesn't happen. That's what their meeting is about.”

It is very unfortunate to hear this come out from someone on the inside, and once again prove that maybe, just maybe, neither Floyd nor Manny are truly responsible for the lag in their proposed maga-fight.

Maybe if more fingers point at Arum, he will end up cornered as far as his lies go, and would have to either make the fight happen, or lose Pacquiao for good.
