Froch tips Mayweather to beat Pacquiao

Age and declining speed will make the match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. a dull and boring affair, one which the American will take on points, according to Englishman Carl Froch.

The Cobra believes the mouth watering £ 200 million super fight between the two biggest Welterweight legends of their era will be far from a classic because age has caught up with both the fighters. The two bickering legends take each other on in what is expected to be the biggest spectacle of the century at the fabled MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas this weekend but the World Boxing Association or WBA Super Middleweight kingpin does not want to get hopes up.

But he did say that he believes the American will clinch the match on points. He said that he may still be undefeated, but at 38 years of age, he is definitely not a spring chicken anymore and it was evident in his last few bouts that he has lost a lot of speed of movement. It is similar situation for Pacquiao too. The 36 year old was once a fearsome athlete but he cannot be called that anymore.

Froch has said that he wants the best man to win the match, the one who trained the hardest for the fight and he is the deserving of victory. Continue reading →

No bad blood with Mayweather, says Arum

Bob Arum, the legendary boxing promoter has rubbished claims that he tried to obstruct the negotiations ahead of a super fight years in the making between his protégé Manny Pacquiao and the pound for pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. which is now set to take place on May 2, in an event that is being billed as the biggest pay per view in the history of the sport.

During the negotiations stage, barbs were aimed at Arum from the camp of Mayweather Jr. who is his former charge that he was trying to obstruct the smooth negotiations for the fight, but Arum says that he does not bear any grudges against the American at all.

Arum promoted Mayweather Jr. during his first decade as a professional as he began to assert himself as the best pound for pound fighter in the world, who still remains undefeated. But the two had a very public falling out in 2006 when both of them sued each other for money. Arum claimed that the American borrowed money from his Top Rank Promotions and had failed to make the repayments while Mayweather Jr. claimed that the legendary promoter was holding back money from his purse that was due to him.

Pacquiao wants a shot at Mayweather Jr.

Manny Pacquiao might be putting the final touches on his preparation for his upcoming title defence against Chris Algieri, but he has made it clear he wants a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. if he manages to retain his title against the Junior Welterweight champion.

Speaking at a press meet ahead of his fight, the Filipino Bomber said that he has one very specific goal and that is to give the fans the fight they have been craving for almost the last decade, adding that he badly wants that fight against Mayweather Jr.

Pacquiao regained his World Boxing Council or WBC Welterweight Championship against the American Timothy Bradley barely two years after he was beaten under very controversial circumstances by the then undefeated American and now, he has turned his attention on another undefeated American in Mayweather Jr.

As the two legendary boxers come towards the end of their glittering careers, Pacquiao has made it clear that he wants the fight that will define their careers. The fight has been talked about for years but none of the fighters have been eager enough so far to make the fight happen.

But now, when it seems Pacquiao is ready to make the fight him, Mayweather Jr. is the one who is trying to avoid the fight.

Speaking in a recent press conference, the undefeated American said that he wishes Pacquiao only the best, adding that he doesn’t think about him, he doesn’t focus on what other fighters are doing.

However, Pacquiao, who is an eight division world champion, doesn’t think Mayweather is serious. He believes any match can be made with proper negotiations and that is what he hopes to achieve with his friend and Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum who has wanted this match for a very long time.
