Top Rank’s main man Bob Arum has gotten extremely vocal lately regarding undefeated WBC Welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0 26ko) and his constant dodge around setting his name on a contract to face P4P great and 8 time champion Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2 38ko).

Recently Arum was quoted as stating that the fight was all but ready to go in Singapore!

“We had some rich guys from Singapore who wanted to do Mayweather-Pacquiao. They wanted to host the fight,”

Even the attempt by Arum to convince Floyd it was a good opportunity met with a contemptuous racial “Moneyism” according to Arum.

“Of course, these guys are Chinese, not Filipino, but Mayweather said, ‘No, they are all the same, they are all Asians and all Asians are the same.”

During the recent media day at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, Arum added insult to injury with his insistence that the time for dealing on this fight may be past.

“That fight will never, ever happen,” Arum said. “Ever, ever happen because of Mayweather.
