At least we know how Floyd Jr. keeps himself busy when not running from Manny Pacquiao

Everyone knows Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. is a bit off but no one should blame him for it. It obviously comes from his father.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. went off on Manny Pacquiao during an On The Ropes Radio interview earlier this month.

“I’d tell him he’s a faggot,” Floyd Sr. said, when asked what he would say to Pacquiao face to face, if given the chance. “That’s what I’d tell him. I’d tell him he ain’t nothing but a little sissy; a little girl.”

“The only thing they’re trying to do is to switch this around and make it look like it’s my son that’s scared,” Mayweather Sr. continued. “He ain’t the one that’s scared. I know who’s scared.”

Mayweather Sr. didn’t stop there. He decided to go full Mel Gibson.

“My problem is, Bob Arum don’t call no [expletive] shots,” he said. “The fight can be made anytime they want the fight to be made. ‘Little Floyd’ definitely ain’t scared of no Pacquiao. That’s the last thing in the world that little Floyd is scared of—a little Filipino midget. Definitely that’s not the case.”

Money’s father ranted about Arum backing Pacquiao because he represents him and how his son should get more money because…well I don’t really get it.

There’s also something about drug testing and Miguel Cotto in there. However there’s no mention of how Pacquiao would fight Cotto because his son won’t agree to the fight even though Pacquiao agreed to Olympic-level blood testing.

Still haven’t seen boxing embarass itself enough? Here’s Danny Green vs. Paul Briggs from Australia. 30 seconds of the sweet science at its finest. Stick around for the post-fight interview.

Don’t try to tell me Don King wasn’t in the house that night.

Bob Arum knows how to give the people what they want. Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao could have been the fight that revived boxing. Instead fans will get Pacquiao vs. plaster cheat Antonio Margarito followed by the possible retirement of the world’s best pound for pound boxer. Well done, Bob.

When Arum’s not taking part in ruining massive pay days, he’s battling bond lawyers and bar mitzvahs. Miguel Cotto is scheduled to take on WBA champion Yuri Foreman on June 12 at Madison Square Garden. The two parties are attempting to move the fight to June 5 and hold it at Yankee Stadium. One problem. The stadium is reserved for a bar mitzvah on the same day.

[Jonathan] Ballan, the lead bond lawyer for the financing of Yankee Stadium, reserved the stadium for his son’s bar mitzvah on Saturday, June 5. In addition to providing lounges, the Yankees promised to give the Ballan party access to the stadium’s giant scoreboard in center field for 30 minutes.

The Yankees are handling the negotiations with Ballan to find a solution to the scheduling conflict. Arum is offering seats for bar mitzvah attendees, a chance to meet Brooklyn native Foreman and autographed Yankee baseballs. The balls will probably be signed by Chuck Knoblauch or Hideki Irabu.

If the Yankees and Ballan can reach an agreement, the fight should be a massive local draw. It would be a battle to determine the greatest country/territory in New York City. Israel or Puerto Rico.  Jews vs. blacks in Crown Heights is old and busted. Who ya got?

Foreman’s publicist, Dovid Efune, said, “This may be the greatest Jewish sporting event since David versus Goliath.”

The fight would also be the greatest Puerto Rican sporting event since the Puerto Rican Day parade. It would have to be held after 11:30 to allow Orthodox Puerto Ricans … sorry, Jews to get to the fight following the Sabbath.

If negotiations aren’t successful, expect Arum to blame the Jews.
