They both ducking! I'm yet to hear either guy call the other out. Arum's not Manny's boss. He's his promoter. If Manny wanted the fight, he'd say lets do this. Same thing with Floyd. Ellerbe doesn't run Money May. Sure the triangle theory isn't a good one to go by but it's hard this time when you see what Floyd did to Juan Ma & then how Manny struggled with him. If i'm the money hungry Arum, i'm stearing clear of Mayweather.
triangle theory doesn't apply to almost any kind of sport. haha.
Arum is trying to stop Pacquiao into making any media appearances to "cool off" the controversial fight first. Mayweather is trying to analyze the whole predicament, looking for his advantages against Pacquiao. Pacquiao has called Mayweather out for the past 4 years, even after the fight against Marquez. (there's an interview of that, you can youtube it). Mayweather tho hasn't made it clear, but he wants the biggest fight out there. He either fights Pacquiao or Martinez.
let me say this again. Mayweather and JuanMa tho both are defensive fighters are clearly two different fighters. JuanMa is a better counter puncher, Mayweather has better defense. Marquez tends to be the aggressor even if his strength is counter punching, has the tendency to leave his gameplan. Mayweather sticks through his game plan no matter what. Mayweather controls the fight by taking out his opponent's rythm either by clinching or using the ring, he throws jabs to measure the distance but he doesn't throw too many combinations at all. That's why his defense is remarkable, because he doesn't take too many chances, he doesn't take too many punishment at all. JMM on the other hand, like i said is willing to engage into a brawl, just look at the first two fights against Pacquiao. The last fight tho Marquez executed an almost perfect tactical game plan.
And don't get too brainwashed about Pacquiao being our national hero. I'm part filipino but i don't think he's a singing sensation or he's the type of guy Filipinos would die for. He did great for us, but still.. he's an idiot, he doesn't even deserved to be a congressman. it's the people from the poverty sector who idolize manny as a god here, but not the middle class to the rich people.
