Boxing Promoter Bob Arum on After Death, what Mayweather fears Most is...

Bob Arum
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. The question is, next to dying what would be the thing Floyd Mayweather Jr. fears the most? According to Manny Pacquiao's boxing promoter, Bob Arum, the answer is... Losing

To be honest with you and I am sure you probably agree that in this aspect, Arum is correct. 

I've always felt that losing and being knocked out on live TV are two things Mayweather must fear most.  You know what I mean... Mayweather likes to portray himself as picture perfect and being knocked out is not something he wants on a highlight reel.  Even the most dedicated hardcore fans of Mayweather must know or at very least suspect this. Even they must wonder if fear of losing is the reason that has kept Mayweather from facing off against Pacquiao.  Arum believes so.

Recently quoted by USA Today, Arum in regards to why he believes Mayweather doesn't want to fight Pacquiao, stated: "For Floyd, the worst thing next to dying is losing. Would you risk dying for a big chunk of money? He is not starving. He makes more money than most athletes, so he doesn't want to 'die.' That's the only way I can figure it out. Nobody can believe it. Otherwise, it makes no sense. No sense!''

Look, I've heard decent arguments from both sides of the equation... but what can't be ignored is the simple fact that there really is no valid excuse from either side as to why this fight hasn't already happened.  However one must take into consideration that Pacquiao's side has publicly agreed to every stipulation Mayweather has asked for, from drug testing, to a bigger slice of the revenue... at this point one has to take a serious look at Floyd Mayweather and wonder what the hell is his hang up? Until then, perhaps the honest question has to be... Is it over the fear of losing?

Now I can't let Pacquiao's side off that easy and just shovel all the dirt on Mayweather... after all, if Pacquiao was serious about wanting Mayweather... then why did he sign up for a 4th fight with Juan Manuel Marquez for Dec. 8th when Mayweather's boxing schedule was wide open for the very least some serious negotiations?
