Boxing Promoter explains why Floyd Mayweather Jr won't fight Shane Mosley By Johnny Benz (Oct 8, 2009) DoghouseBoxing
In a recent interview with Promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank Promotions, conducted by our friends over at BoxingScene.com, Arum discussed Floyd Mayweather Jr. Arum feels the fight that Floyd Mayweather Jr. should make is one with "Sugar" Shane Mosley.
Arum tells the publication that Mayweather vs Mosley should be made but Mayweather Jr. won't take the fight because he might lose. "The fight that should be made is Mayweather and Shane Mosley," stated Arum, adding: "But Mayweather won’t take that fight. He won’t take any fight where there is any possibility where he might lose."
Arum went on to state that Mayweather Jr's love for money and being able to retire undefeated is what Mayweather Jr. cares for the most. "Money is secondary with him. He will not take a chance like a normal fighter. He cares more about his legacy and being able to retire undefeated, so he could say that he never lost a fight,” said Arum.
Arum's next big promotion is Manny Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto. Arum promotes both Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto.
