Bob Arum: Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is finally off

As reported by Ronnie Natanielsz in BoxingScene.com, the super fight Pacquiao-Mayweather Fight is finally off.

The most anticipated richest fight in boxing history which was previously planned top happen on March 13, 2010 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas will not push through.

This is after no deal was settled during the two-day talk with retired federal judge Daniel Weinstein in San Diego, California.

It was learned that Golden Boy Promotions, which is the camp of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. rejected the offer of reigning pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao side that the random blood tests be done 24 days before the fight, in which the previous demand is 30 days.

It must be remembered that the Mayweather camp is insisting a Olympic-style, random testing supervised by the US Anti-Doping Agency should be done. On the other hand, the Pacquiao group wants to do blood and urine testing under a particular period of time and to be handled by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Nevertheless, Manny Pacquiao may still fight in March but with Yuri Foreman who is the current World Boxing Association (WBA) super welterweight champion. If Pacquiao shall win, it will be his 8th world boxing title.

Manny Pacquiao has moved on and will fight Joshua Clottey on March 13.

Mayweather on the other hand is still rejoicing knowing that he have managed to avoid someone who will destroy him! Puck-puck-puck!
