Boxing Promoter Arum Pulls Out of Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Talks By Johnny Benz (Dec 11, 2009) Doghouse Boxing
According to a recent report by David Mayo of the Grand Rapids Press, Bob Arum is excusing himself from Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight negotiations. Mayweather vs Pacquiao will not be happening at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium, and Mayweather Jr's side pulling out at the last minute of negotiations for a fight at the Texas based Stadium seems to have left Arum angry.
Arum is turning over the negotiations to Todd duBoef, who is the president of Arum's Promotional company Top
Rank, as well as Arum's stepson. So Arum's company is still handling their side of the negotiations, but will do so without Arum leading the charge.
Plans are for Mayweather Jr and Pacquiao to face one another on March 13th of 2010. The only thing that stands in the way of making the fight official is a final choice of venue for the event. At this time is looks like the MGM Grand in las Vegas is the clear front runner.
