Long before all of the conspiracy theories arose over the weekend from the highly controversial loss by Manny Pacquiao to Timothy Bradley, one fighter called it a whole lot earlier. Years ago, Floyd Mayweather Jr. predicted that Bob Arum would screw both Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao if they ever tried to leave him.
Here’s a word of warning to any fighter thinking about leaving Bob Arum.
“Bob Arum is trying to keep all of the money in house basically…he’s like ok, if you leave me you’re going to be beat before you leave me.”
Manny Pacquiao had been talking about possibly retiring from the sport after fighting Bradley on June 9th.
No word yet on whether there will be a rematch on November 10th because after the uproar from this fight, promoters are woorying that fans will boycott a second fight. The odds are that if Pacquiao decides to continue fighting, his next fight could be against Juan Manuel Marquez or if the stars align, a superfight against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
